Another episode down and one to go. We’ve got a lot of ground to cover as last night’s whopping 29-minute precursor to the finale offered up major developments that I’m not sure one more episode can resolve. (Or can it?)
Vince still won’t give up on Miss Sophia, and decides to make a DVD featuring interviews with all of his old flames, asking, “What’s your best memory of our relationship?”
With answers like, “Umm, what’s this movie rated,” you’d have to wonder if sending a visual version of your little black book to the girl you like is actually a good idea. The guys seem to find it creepy, with the exception of Turtle aka the Francis Ford Coppola of iMovie.

I’d like to start this recap with a quote from Turtle circa season one: “I don’t know about the after life, but this life is sweeeet.”
That was 2004.
Seven years later, our boys have grown up. Last night’s “The Big Bang” (co-written by Jerry Ferrara) taught us that, for better or worse, these guys aren’t the same crew who spent off-days looking for weed at Val Kilmer’s house.

Believe it or not, we’re halfway through the final season. I’d like to tell you that the show is going out with a bang, but I’m working on my honesty these days and with the exception of maybe the last two episodes, it’s hard to say that this last hurrah has been one to remember.
Last night’s episode saw E getting played by the opposite sex (shocker), Vince falling hard for a new girl, the end of the Gold marriage and the never-ending quest that is Johnny Drama’s pursuit of his own stardom.
Some of it worked, some if it didn’t and at 29 minutes and 15 seconds, it was one of the longer episodes this year. That’s a good thing, right? Let’s dig in.

I’ll go ahead and say it: This was a damn good episode, perhaps even better than last week. Sure, the focus was solely on Vince and Ari, but ultimately they’re the two storylines that drive this show.
Now that I’ve got that out of the way, it’s time to dig into the marriage therapy session, drug tests and fake penis installation that made this episode an “Entourage” classic.
After last week’s drug-fueled suicide a la Carl Hertz, Vince’s already damaged public image is now in serious jeopardy.

There’s a moment in almost every season of a great television series that changes everything.
Maybe not in a drastic, life-altering type of way, but let’s just say that after last night’s episode of “Entourage” it’s becoming more obvious that the honeymoon days of old are being met with the highs and lows of growing up and facing the tough realities of life.
Vince seems hell-bent on finding a producer for his Romanian miners flick and even solicits recommendations for a producer at his Narcotics Anonymous meeting. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back the ever-so-sleazy Carl Hertz (Kim Coates) from season 5’s “Fantasy Island” episode.

It looks like “Entourage’s” Johnny Drama (Kevin Dillon) can’t catch break in real life either.
According to several reports, an MTV reality star is threatening to sue the team behind the hit HBO show, claiming they stole the nickname “Johnny Bananas” (the name of Drama’s cartoon show) from him without asking.
Former “Real World” roomie Johnny Devenanzio says he’s been using the name Johnny Bananas on various MTV programs and even has the moniker copyrighted.
TMZ reports that Devenanzio (or Bananas, if you're so inclined) hired an attorney who wrote to the shows’ producers, “If you do not cease and desist…you leave us little option but to seek judicial intervention.” FULL POST
