I thought Entourage was fair to middling last Sunday. It must be my superior intelligence but I knew instantly that the boys' film would flop at Cannes, as it did. The best part was the cute and sweet sub-plot with Johnny Drama. Finally reality catches up with Johnny's fantasies. In France Viking Quest is a popular show. His French girl friend was sexy, stylish and really fetching. A non-bimbo even if she was a bit of a groupie. That was a refreshing change. I still hope somebody plants an axe deep into Walsh's head. Turtle is hopeless. Ari is getting dull...I hate to say it because it was my favorite show for three seasons...but it just seems tired and over.
On the the hand Flight of The Conchords was so good I'd put it up against the best of Seinfeld. That original, that funny; and sort of Monty Python strange in places. The lads found their own Walsh in the bongo player...another one deserving of an axe buried deep in the skull. And he was familiar. We've all known people like him...no talent, arrogant, smug, devious...I've watched the episode twice now and it's spot on perfect.
