Today I re-watched several episodes of the television show ENTOURAGE

And it was exactly as amazing as I remember it being.

The best thing about Entourage is that most episodes involve really no conflict. They’re like, uhh, Vince wants to have sex with some girl. And then he does. Or Vince wants to be in a movie. And then he discovers that the movie sucks. And he doesn’t want to be in it anymore.

The whole thing is just so insubstantial. But, really, the glitz is the point. That’s what you’re watching for. I have no idea if any of it is accurate, but the depiction of celebrity life is compelling because of the ways that it’s both similar to and different from ordinary life. Obviously, celebrities go on TV and have sex with attractive people and can afford nice things. But they also really have to navigate the ordinary world: they go to regular restaurants and stand in line at Starbucks and order towels at Bed, Bath and Beyond.

It’s a very weird dichotomy
