Season 7 of Entourage premiered on Sunday night and it was clear what the writers and producers wanted to accomplish – create an entertainment sausage jam-packed with as many bits and pieces of male interests and activities as possible.
Explosions, poker, video games, beer, weed, and watches?
Check, check, check, check, check, and check.
What? No golf?
Unfortunately, I think most viewers walked away from the episode hungry or sick to their stomach. Hopefully Entourage will serve up a tastier meal next week.
That’s not so say that there weren’t a few enjoyable bites this week.
In terms of cars, the Mercedes S550 stole the show. Mercedes was probably getting sick of seeing other manufacturers like Aston Martin and Maserati trying to increase mindshare in the luxury marketplace.
Of course there were women thanks to Turtle’s new business venture – car service with beautiful young women headlined by Dania Ramirez, Annie Ilonzeh, Jamie Lee Darley, and Genesis Rodriguez. While all of those women are beautiful, Emmanuelle Chriqui still holds the throne as the darling of Entourage. Unfortunately she only made a brief cameo.
Gadgets also played a prominent role in the episode. Turtle and Drama spent some time playing the Xbox 360. Wonder why Sony hasn’t tried to get their PS3 on the show. And as always, mobile phones got their fair share of screen time. Ari and Eric were using Blackberries (Ari seemed to be carrying around two for most of the episode) and Vince was seen using an iPhone 3. HTC even made a brief appearance when Ari took a call from Eric.
The cast also displayed some fancy watches – the two most notable being Turtle’s Panerai Luminor Chrono and the movie director’s Gold IWC Big Pilot. It’ll be interesting to see what watches make appearances throughout the season – Drama and Ari were sporting two noticeable watches, but it was tough to tell what they were. Any ideas?
Enjoy the show – I’ll be blogging about the cars, gadgets, girls, and watches all season long. Please join my facebook page to stay up to date: eRelyx Facebook page
