is that its only a half hour each week. What a great show! What did yall think of the first episode of the new season?
I think this is the movie Vince makes. Remember this is Part 2 of Season 3 and each season ends with Vince making a movie. Season 1 was Queens Boulevard and Season 2 was Aquaman. I think Medellian is the Season 3 movie. I am just glad that the show is back it is my favorite show on TV right now.
What ever happened to the slightly gratuitous nudity the show used to have? They still have gorgeous women, though.
Anyone else think that the product promotion in the show was a clever way to do it?
I agree that the product placement was creative, but I saw it coming as soon as they started going over-budget. I was a little disappointed that the show came back so horribly commercial after such a hiatus.
But I agree that Vince gets Medellian. I don't know how Ari is going to do it but he wouldn't give Vince that script unless he had it or had something better, and at this point I don't think there's anything that Vince wants more.
If Vince does the other movie (the name is escaping me), I'm going to be pissed. I love this show.
Show is great Ari will definately get it done. My fiancee actually knows the real Ari, as does my best man, and woof; she has a hard time watching it, as apparently the real one is one sexist dude and not at all charming like the TV one.
Still a great show tho. Backing off on the nudity doesn't hurt it for me; HBO shows are best during dialogue
Loved it. But nothing will EVER top the Episode "What About Bob" from last season. I still laugh on a semi-daily basis about many lines from that episode, most often it's "What if I told you I had a 22 inch c**k, would that be something you're interested in?"
Or Bob asking for Sanka at the meeting and Ari's face after he asks for it.
I think the integrated product promotion works incredibly well with this show because it is part of the storyline. They arent trying to slip it in there, its pretty conspicuous. My only complaint is that they said there was only going to be top shelf liquor at the party, and Vince is holding up a bottle of Sky Vodka . . . whats with that? Give me some Grey Goose or Belvedere any day!
not a great episode this week, although Piven was awesome as usual. I enjoyed the interplay with Lloyd, it just seemed like this weeks episode was missing something.
This week didn't "advance the story" at all, but it will still entertaining as hell. Come on ... Ari Gold in a gay club??? Classic stuff.
as an aside, who wouldnt love to do the pacific coast drive in an Aston Martin . . .
I agree with your assessment of this Sunday's episode. In the end, absolutely nothing happened. No progress on the movie; Vince didn't get to go on vacation; Piven didn't sign the client; Turtle and Drama didn't get the girls. For what it's worth, I thought the Turtle/Drama subplot was one of the weaker episodes of the entire series.
But I love Lloyd, and I enjoyed the fact that he was given such a major role in an episode. Easily my favorite character.
The Maserati was a gift from a dealership IIRC, and the guys gave it to those high school kids who hosted the house party they went to.
Vince bought all the guys Aston Martins after Aquaman, I think.
I just loved it how Sloan said "Oh, I'll talk this weekend, but I wouldn't expect much else" and then smiles into the camera. So perfectly cruel.
Once again . . . Vince's story line was weak. Ari's, though, was fantastic. That scene at the end where he took the candy bar from the girl was hilarious.
Vince's was a little week, but I think the point was well put. I am looking forward to next week, to see the fallout of the booty call.
And anyway, this is a show about Ari as much, or more, than a show about Vince and the boys.
Still, and enjoyable show. It forced me to break down and finally get HBO this year.
