I am an orange god

Play it: Entourage - Ep 3.02
We're gonna dent that headboard. No bullsh*t. I guarantee you... You will not walk right tomorrow.
- Ari (Jeremy Piven) to his wife
Aquaman opens and could topple Spider-man's record for opening weekend ("Take that Tobey!") so Vince and the gang go to the valley (against Drama's wishes - he's anti-Valley) to soak it all in. The heat's causing rolling blackouts, though, so they stop at a fan's party to cool off (they've got a pool) and so Vince can have his Almost Famous moment.

I don't know which troubled me more... that they french-kissed Almost Famous, or that Samm Levine (Freaks and Geeks) is still playing a high school geek (Reggie.) He's 24 already... not even Drama was held back this many times in school. And he still doesn't even warrant a guest star credit (Nora Dunn, as a couple counselor, gets the only credit this ep.) Hopefully it's not the heavy breathing that's holding him back.

Music features some Nashville Pussy, Daddy Yankee and The Shys, who I feel I need to check out now after hearing their track "Call In The Cavalry." Classic rock block shot comes from Rare Earth with the feel good "I Just Want to Celebrate."

I'm already in Ireland in my mind...

They copied an AF moment? That sorta blows.

I know! An homage is one thing, but this was a bit too much of a good thing.
