Crushing Spidey?

SPOILER ALERTS! Entourage just keeps getting better. Vince is hitting it big, Drama is just nuts, and Ari is totally losing it. Even rolling blackouts can't stop Aquaman. (Having also watched Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room this weekend, I felt like I was reliving that documentary.) I have to admit that while Entourage does not lend itself to the detailed analysis that the Sopranos does, here were some outstanding moments last night worth mentioning:

--Drama in general but particularly in his discusion of what he lost to Michael Madsen. Perfect.

--Ari's continuing to lose it and the growing role of Mrs. Ari and her frustration.

--The girl's reaction when Turtle realizes that she is legal, and she just freaks out when he ogles her.

--the clip of Aquaman--perfect!

--And, finally, the kid from Freaks and Geeks, who seems to have perfected the geek role. He is his generation's Anthony Michael Hall.

Of course, we will don't know whether Aquaman will, in the end, beat Spidey. And we don't know whether the movie's seemed success will make Ari and his new venture (and of course LLOYD!). And how stardom will affect Vince. But we do know that I will tune in next week to find out. And so should you.
