Five Reasons You Should Be Watching "Entourage" ... But Probably Aren't

Whew ... hi, everyone. It's nice to be back (and minus the tremors and hellish hallucinations, no less).

My therapist advises me that detoxing in Scottsdale won't be half as much fun as contributing to the madness that is this particular corner of cyberspace - although I will miss the fresh mountain air, poker-loving shamans and two for one taco specials at Jack in the Box.

Anywho, "Entourage" is back on HBO for its second season, having kicked off June 5 (I'll pause so those who don't have premium channels can bitch and moan ... OK, done) and if you're not watching it, you fuggin' well should be. The first season's out on DVD; it's only eight episodes so you can sandwich it between that godawful new show on Fox where the Australian guy yells at Emeril Lagasse rejects and "$40 a Day" (which sounds like it should be a pimps and ho's documentary on Cinemax, but isn't). Here's no less than five reasons why.

1. Gary Busey is one weird and disturbingly funny muchacho - much like the late, surreal and utterly lamented Comedy Central series "I'm With Busey" proved in spades.

2. Who knew Mark Wahlberg actually had a sense of humor about being a rich asshole?

3. It's "Sex and the City" for dudes. But with fewer shoes, no PMS and no gratuituous male ass shots.

4. Jeremy Piven is a GOD. A god, I tells ya.

5. Because David Chase is a ruthless tease who couldn't finish a season in less than six months if someone had a gun to his head, "Six Feet Under" has blown chunks the past three seasons and "The Shield" (another show everyone should watch and doesn't) is over next week.

Any questions? No? Good, I'll be slurping wheat grass and mango smoothies by the pool if you need me.

What? No gratuitous male ass shots? Then what's the point.


Oh, sorry. A moment of self-centered perspective warping. Sorry.

Actually, I do watch Entourage, though I don't think it's all that great, definitely worth watching though.

I still like Six Feet Under, thought it's not as good as it was in the first season.

The Shield is great. How long before Dutch and Claudette are chasing a serial killer that ends up being Dutch, himself?

But I like gratuitous male ass shots.
