Almost everyone agrees that HBO’s Entourage has gone downhill over the last few seasons, but realistically, I’m not too disappointed about that fact. The show is essentially half-hour junk food, and I’ve learned not to expect too much from it. I continue to watch and enjoy it for what it is, and although they are clearly stretching themselves to come up with new and different storylines, the characters still feel like close friends that I simply enjoy spending time with.
When asked about the show at the premiere for Peter Jackson’s The Lovely Bones this week, executive producer Mark Wahlberg hinted that it is definitely winding down. He feels that Entourage has maybe two seasons left, however, he also dropped an interesting bombshell: apparently the show may end with a feature-length movie! It’s unclear if this would be a theatrical release or not, but considering the popularity of the show (which is still growing) I don’t think it is out of the question.
Despite my general feeling that the show works best in small doses, I can’t help but be intrigued by the prospect. Maybe they will end with Vince doing another Aquaman sequel, and the Entourage “movie” will actually be the entire fake Aquaman flick? Now that would be meta! Either way considering the fact that Entourage is basically Sex and the City for guys, and considering how well that movie did, I don’t see why Vinnie and the boys shouldn’t do a movie of their own. What do you think? Are you still watching Entourage, and is a movie a good way to go out?
