Based on Mark Wahlberg's experiences of fame, Entourage looks at Vince Chase as he tries to carve out a acting career in Hollywood with the help of his friends; Eric who doubles as his manager; Jonny Drama, Vince's older brother who is a struggling actor; and Turtle, who is basically Vince's gopher. Along for the ride is Vince's high profile manager Ari, who is utterly demanding, pushy and charming- all the things that make him a successful agent.
Creatively more successful than the first, this second season delves a little deeper into the boys' Hollywood life. Unlike the first season which whilst being incredibly enjoyable, was more standalone, with the boys coasting from party to party. This season has proper story arcs, the main one being trying to get Vince the lead role in the Aquaman movie. Eric tries to fit in as his role as manager and as Vince's friend which isn't always easy as he finds out. Ari has one of my favourite story lines as the season draws to close- something to look forward to of you're watching this show for the first time!
This season is more star studded than the first, with Mandy Moore, James Cameron and Brooke Shields all appearing as themselves as well as a visit to the Playboy Mansion for the boys.
This is incredibly funny show and is a brilliant look at the good life of a movie star. I'd recommend it to anyone especially if you're looking for well written, escapism TV.
