Adrian Grenier


Indie films don’t often tackle issues that are big on a geographic scale — big drama sure, but big events are usually outside their budgetary range. An impending apocalypse is a good example of the type of topic beyond an indie’s reach, but there are exceptions including 2012’s It’s a Disaster which successfully married lots of laughs, some relationship drama and the possible end of the world. (Or at least the end of Los Angeles.) Goodbye World seems to start off on the same strong footing, but it becomes clear pretty quickly that director/co-writer Denis Hennelly isn’t entirely sure what kind of film he’s trying to make. There’s comedy, relationship drama and an impending apocalypse, but there’s also very little of value to hold it all together. There is plenty of bickering though. James (Adrian Grenier) and Lily (Kerry Bishé) are hosting some friends for the weekend at their rural, self-sustaining, off the grid home in Northern California, and it’s there where they discover the outside world is falling to pieces after a mass text reading “Goodbye World” spreads like wildfire. Riots, bombings, martial law and renegade National Guard members are an increasing threat, so why are these “friends” all fighting over the little things?

I remember back in 2008 I had only heard of Entourage in passing. While growing up in Long Island, some of my High School classmates were obsessed with it, and when I got to college my roommate wouldn’t stop talking about it. So in December of 2008 I finally watched the series… I went through the first five seasons in one week, the third season in one day… I was almost immediately (minus that awful pilot) consumed by the show. Vinny’s strive to always provide, Johnny’s constant need for fame without understanding how good he has it compared to most actors in the business, Turtle’s drive to be his own man, E’s desire for a normal life and of course Ari’s need for total control. All these things, despite what some may snark at, served to make something that was more than the glamour-filled exterior that the show sat within.



The insanity of writer/actor Ari Gold collides with the awesomeness of the Air Guitar World Championship. How can this possibly go wrong?


Entourage: Play 'n with Fire

Vince takes Verner’s criticisms from last week to heart, but the director ends up firing Vince on the spot.


Michael Steger

Producers and a writer are now in place on a biopic that will tell the story of Grateful Dead singer Jerry Garcia’s younger years. Now all we need to know is who should be cast in the lead role…



Vince gets humiliated on the set of Smokejumpers with a shrinking number of lines and a passive-aggressive director. Eric gets humiliated by Seth Green while trying to close a deal for another client.



Vince’s first day on the set of Smokejumpers starts with a dickish Drama, includes feelings of nervousness, and ends with a realization that Vince’s career has sunk so low that Jason Patric actually carries more weight.



The gang returns from last week’s surprise vacation, and Turtle scores a first class seat next to Jamie Lynn Sigler, star of HBO’s The Sopranos. He makes a mile-high claim to the guys, which no one believes.


Entourage: Gotta Look Up to Get Down

Vince gets a gig doing a photo shoot with a model, but trouble arises when sparks fly between the two. Elsewhere, Ari tries to work some business while attending a funeral for a dead studio head and is surprised when he’s offered the dead man’s job.


Entourage: Redomption

The annoying Dom returns to cause trouble, press himself into Vince’s business, and annoy the fuck out of the viewers at home.



After realizing that Vince may be prevented from starring in Smoke Jumpers due to bad blood with a studio head, he has to seriously consider an offer to star in a reboot of the Benji franchise.



Ari finally shows interest in Eric’s screenwriters and their script, but it may be too late. The writing duo see this additional interest and decide that they should be making more money. Drama has come to terms with his recent break-up and is preparing to make an appearance on The View.



The gang starts to face the reality of their financial situation after a meeting with their accountant. In an effort to avoid declaring bankruptcy, Vince accepts $200k for an appearance at a Sweet Sixteen party.


Be prepared to be charmed… for at least the first 10 minutes.
