Cross-sword traffic

Entourage Ep. 15

This is the second week in a row HBO has messed up the tracklistings for their shows (last week was Six Feet Under.) It's finally been fixed, but now I gots to remember wha happened. Oh, yeah, no I remember...

The boys are in Sundance for the premiere of Queens Blvd., and James Cameron is supposedly coming to see it as well. After landing at the airport in Sun Valley, E runs into big producer Harvey Weingard -a not-so-subtle mock o' Weinstein, eh?- in the toilet and sets up a meeting. The boys meet their driver, who is a sexy Peace Corps babe (played by Sarah Carter) and for some reason she finds the peanut gallery cute. Ari surprises the gang with a snowball, and gets buried with their return fire. Laughter, hugs and banter ensues, with Ari making sure he's in on the Harvey meeting. The peanut gallery pursues Peace Corps driver, and also discover they've got bunk beds. Turtle's a bottom, apparently. Drama invites PCD to the sold-out showing of his fave Spanish director, and, to Drama's chagrin, Turtle sneaks in, bribing the door with one of Vince's Sundance basket gifts (a Sidekick, get it?) Meanwhile, E, Vince and Ari meet with Harvey who on the spot offers Vince the part in an adventure movie in Australia. Ari tells them to take the offer, even though it conflicts w/ the shooting of Aquaman. It's the safe thing to do, but Vince tells E he doesn't want to play it safe. Then a (topless?) girl in the hot tub (played by MTV Road Rules' Angela Trimbur) tells Vince and E to get to the gettin' on. The peanut gallery goes back and have some drinks with PCD (Sarah Carter) and after some lame flirtatious attempts tell her that their tired of going against one another for her affections and she needs to choose. She moves in and kisses Turtle (Drama looks dejected,) then she comes back and leans in to kiss Drama (Drama looks confused - cut to Turtle who looks horrified.) She kisses Drama and then says "show me your bunk beds." At the premiere for Queens, the boys are out front and Turtle and Drama look like they just lived through a Tsunami. After some prodding they confess that "they crossed swords" during their threesome the night before. Director Walsh has taken a razor to his hair to relieve anxiety over the failure of his movie ("my mom hated it, but she doesn't know shit!") E breaks it to Ari that Vince wants to wait on Aquaman, and Ari dares him to tell that to Harvey. E does, and gets screamed at, spit on, and told that he and Vince will never work in the industry again... all the while Cameron's in the background smiling and shaking his head ("that Harvey!") Walsh announces to the crowd that if anyone's got to pee, hurry up as the movie is 4 hours (!) They take their seats and we get the black and white opening... then we get "The End" (presumably four hours later.) That's when they find out Cameron left 10 minutes into the movie. Panic sets in. But Drama, who brought his fave Spanish director with him, finds out he's got an audition in his bullfighting movie. So there's that. Frustrated, the gang decides to hit the slopes. At the top E confesses that perhaps they should've taken some lessons. A phone call from Ari reveals that Cameron is on the line and he offers the part of Aquaman to Vince. Ari happily tells the gang that "we'll be getting drunk with Russell Crowe and headbutting Kangaroos" before you know it. Ahh, happy endings. Last one down the mountain has to read the credits....

It was stupendous, one of the better so how that I've had the opportunity to see in my life. I stayed really fascinated with Crosstown Traffic.
