Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier) is finally on top of his game. Life seemed so bleak for an instant and now with Gatsby and Ferrari his career has reached a new pinnacle. No longer afraid of being alone since his best friends decided to go in a new direction, Vinny is rocking the singles scene with stunning women. Even better, since performing his own death-defying stunt in Ferrari he has once again found his inner badass. Eric Murphy (Kevin Connolly) has distanced himself from his friends on a personal level but re-devoted himself on a professional level that promises to take everyone to new heights. Well, almost. Busy planning his wedding to Sloan (Emmanuelle Chiriquí) E has left Vince without a constant friend to indulge his every whim. In his absence fellow agency slickster Scotty Levin (Scott Caan) has filled in. Caan plays an annoying asshole better than almost anyone on television. Talk about being typecast as yourself! Scotty is not afraid to take Vince skydiving or drinking all night, but he needs to lay off E’s client and quick. Johnny Drama (Kevin Dillon) is finding out that a holding deal with a network is not a guarantee of any kind. In fact it could very well be a short-lived gift that is a consolation prize. Working to put together a show he hires E as his agent. Reluctantly but at the behest of Vince he agrees. Somehow the perfect script is found and Drama needs to woo John Stamos (who looks like Grenier’s older brother) to star as his better looking brother or the network will cancel the show before it even starts. Who can forget the anchor of the show, Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven)? Ari is in the midst of luring an NFL team to Los Angeles and signing the NFL owners to a lucrative new T.V. contract. Despite this huge success looming he fires his T.V. agent at his wife’s request and she makes his life a living hell in retribution. Finally, Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) has started his own Mercedes limousine business. Unfortunately it is a total failure. Left with no employees he lets his agonizing super crush Alex lure him to Mexico for a business proposition that he may not be able to resist. He is head over heels in love but I say bring back Jamie Lynn Siegler!
Season 7 is halfway through and I feel like I have watched 15 episodes, not four. So much drama and dozens of storyline developments have been crammed into eight episodes and that has made the series awesome again. How can you be a man between the ages of 18-45 and not absolutely love the show? It is “Sex and the City” for guys only our actors are not 55 year old cougars who do not know when to say when. I cannot wait to find out how the next four episodes will unfold. Thank HBO for offering us what television in general desperately needed: a reason to stay home and new episodes during the drought-ridden summer months. Until the NFL and “House” start here’s looking at you Entourage!
