p1_entourageThrough most of the first five seasons, Entourage revolved mostly around Vince. We’re only two episodes into Entourage‘s sixth and it’s pretty clear this time around, the boys are now on equal ground as far as the attention is concerned.

Attention is all that Vince gets at the premiere of Gatsby, and after a scene that was reminiscent of the Entourage pilot, where Vince gets out of the car and is greeted by the roar of the crowd, but things change this time around. We see each member of the gang get their own individual attention. Drama finally gets his red carpet momentwhich is almost dashed by his date who continuously hits on anyone who chats to her, Turtle gets kissed by Jamieon the red carpet no less, and E’s attention is stolen by Sloane.

Meanwhile, Ari finds that although Andrew has been given a second chance, he doesn’t appear to be that grateful. Ari is shocked to discover that Andrew is having an office fling, a fact he learns after he introduces their wives to each otherwho are now getting along incredibly well. Like a rock trapped between a hard place, Ari now puts pressure on Andrew to end the office affair.

Previously I mentioned on how E and Sloane are inevitably going to get together by the end of this season or even during it. That is of course, if they get past themselves, and more importantly, the hurdles. The 24-year old hurdle at the moment is of course, Ashley. When E faces Sloane about their obvious unfinished business, he is brushed aside, straight into Ashley’s armsthough we don’t see that. Knowing E, what he does and what we think he’ll do end up being two completely different things.

The highlight of the episodes include, Drama’s overzealous date, Turtles infatuation with Seth Rogen, and of course Lloyd’s duty to do whatever Ari tells him to. In this case, its eating a grape every time he sees Ari. These highlights prove once again, that this season is more about the friends than it is about Vince.
