on "entourage" today in the nytimes. that show is the shit, and you should watch it if you don't already. one highlight of the article:
"Entourage" represents so vast an improvement over HBO's "Sex and the City" that it makes that show seem, in retrospect, like nothing more than a one-note celebration of pluckiness, devised for a tweener reading level. By contrast, "Entourage" does not patronize its characters or its audience: it is a multilayered, adult and thoroughly funny show about various male fantasies of teamwork and individualism.
in case you think that assessment is a gender thing, the article was written by virginia heffernan. i'm not one of those guys who hates on sex and the city; i always thought it was a decent show. but entourage is in a different stratosphere. it makes sex and the city look like will & grace.
on a sidenote, i think it's better than arrested development as well. arrested development is good, but i don't think it's worthy of the hubbub it gets (much like sideways). it seems to strive for cheekiness in a slightly contrived way. reno 911 is better.
