So Vinnie may lose AQUAMAN 2 to Jake Gyllenhall, or as Ari so eloquently puts it, “Brokeback Aquaman.” Why do I feel like I’ve already seen this story before? Possibly because I have, in real life!
Readers may remember Tobey Macguire trying to pull the same stunt and almost being replaced by Jake Gyllenhall for Spider-man 2. Is it just me, or has ENTOURAGE gone a little to ‘inside Hollywood’ this season? Perhaps the writers could come up with some ‘original’ stories and stop devising plots that have been ‘ripped from the headlines.’ If I wanted to watch episodes that I’ve read about in the newspaper, an episode of LAW & ORDER is just a click away.
Did I love tonight’s episode, not really. This season, ENTOURAGE has taken a page from the LOST playbook. Essentially nothing happens in every episode until the final scene, when we’re left with a quasi-cliffhanger to leave us hooked until the following week. Obviously I have no will power and will be tuned in next week – but not for the plot, more so to see Lloyd turn into the Next Hollywood Super-Agent and make Drama the star he’s dying to become.
