A Retraction


I stand corrected.

After being inundated with comments and e-mails chastising me for my harsh assessment of HBO's Entourage -- and likewise extolling the greatness of the show -- I've decided that I, in fact, was wrong.

Far from fitting the dissentient description I provided a scant two days ago, Entourage is, in actuality, everything its enthusiasts claim it to be: the hilarious adventures and misadventures of four plucky (and lucky!) young guys who, along with their irascible but lovable agent, navigate both the pay-dirt and the pitfalls of the modern movie business -- playing by their own rules and conquering Hollywood on their own terms!

It is indeed one of the finest and funniest shows on television.

Coming up tomorrow: how a block of falling ice recently rendered me borderline retarded.

Oh, Chez.

What do I keep telling you about insulting you audience?

Chez, I swear to God I just nearly soiled my Scooby Doo Underoos at that last part.....Why must you consistently remind me of my inferiority? Why?

Apparently, somebody owned the rights to the name Douchebags, or HBO would have called it that. En-toilette? Entour-anus? Whatever...I've seen baby seal clubbings that have had more yuks than an entire season of that craptastic show. At least HBO is making amends by giving us a pair of Deadwood movies to close the series.

That is just fantastic! It's nice to see somebody with some integrity left in this business. Truly. Despite the fact that so many people called you out on your dislike of "Entourage," you still hold true to your principles and refuse to pander to your audience. Bravissimo, my friend. Bravo.

All my best,
Walter Cronkite

The answer to finding true humor in Entourage and most other "Comedies" on TV lies in two simple words: Frontal Lobotomy

"borderline retarded" you say...can't be nearly as bad as the Simple (minded) Life.

I tried to like this show, but I somehow couldn't relate to the "problems" of four rich, dumb white guys with incredible amounts of free time and unlimited access to fabulous women. I want to do any number of things to Debi Mazar, most of which are illegal and all of which are immoral, but I can pictures of her pleasuring unicorns online if I so choose, so why what that terrible show?
