The "Medellin" trailer, this ain't. You wouldn't buy this series based on the trailer for the eighth and final season of "Entourage," but it does give a few snippets of info about what to expect.

Enjoy the show (and possibly the pre-roll ad, but I can't control that).

Actors Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Jerry Ferrara and Kevin Dillon are joined by creator Doug Ellin and executive producer Ally Musika for a 30-minute farewell documentary for "Entourage."

It includes interviews with plenty of other folks as well. Give it a watch. It's well-produced.

I'd embed the whole clip, but there are a few curses in there and I must stick to the Best...

Is it July 24 yet?

I spent Sunday evening dealing with some old feelings. I was craving some "Entourage."

I know, I know, that seems about as hip and cool now as that guy who used to wear the ugly sweaters on informercials. But so goes life on a summer Sunday when you don't care for shows and movies about vampires.

The eighth and final season of "Entourage" returns to...

Johnny Drama is getting old

Johnny Drama's anger and rage toward voicing the lead role of a gorilla in "Johnny Bananas," a hypothetical animated show on the HBO series "Entourage," is just his typical angst.

It's exactly the type of struggle we're used to seeing after seven seasons of the show.

But, this time, Drama's angst goes metaphorically deeper than ever before. He's not just being outrageous...

It's not you, it's me . . . or maybe it IS you

Whether it's the unedited version on cable, the badly dubbed version on another station or side two of the DVD, I never watch the last half hour of "Goodfellas."

Why, you ask? Because I get mad every time I see Paulie (played by Paul Sorvino) give a befallen Henry Hill $3,200 and says "And now I must turn my back on you."

As Hill (Ray Liotta),...

Entourage 7/3: Best printable line

In the interests of justice, we'll give you what we found to be the best printable line from Episode 3.

It came from Scott Lavin, played by Scott Caan. While at an auction with Vince, he was looking at a dinosaur head when Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson came by. He's the owner of the item trying to sell it for a profit.

Peterson was asked why he was selling it, and Lavin...

Entourage 7/2: Best printable line

Episode 2 has us leaning toward believing Vince has postconcussion syndrome from the car accident in the season 7 premiere. We're not buying the buzzed-on-pain-meds storyline.

Among the "weird" things Vince did was cut his hair by himself. At the press junket for his new "Ferrari" movie, publicist Shauna (Debi Mazar) comes up from behind Vince and delivers this...

Entourage 7/1: The Ari Gold Mine

It was a classic Ari Gold egomaniacal line and, typically, it's not reprintable here. Nevertheless, the Ari Gold Mine in the Season 7 premiere came about after director Nick Cassavetes put an ad in a trade magazine. Payback for telling the studio he was going to let Vince do his own car stunt.

The photo in the ad was of Ari dressed in drag back in college. Ari was quick to reply, suggesting...
