Suspended in limbo

Play it: Entourage - Episode 3.07

How do recap a show where nothing really happened? I supposed there's one of these every season... just 30 minutes of plot lines to get you to the next episode. All the characters are in limbo. Ari's waiting for his (large) severance buy-out so he can open a new (huge) talent agency, Vince is between projects and E's having problems recovering from his three-way - he's suspended between girlfriend and his girlfriend's girlfriend. That's it in a nutshell... if you missed it, you really didn't. Highlight might've been Seth Green mentioning that no one wants to see a comedy based on four guys in their 30s living together, in explaining why his terrible sitcom Four Kings was cancelled last year (which some critics considered a poor clone of Entourage.)

Music-wise we've got a recent hip-hop classic (Jurassic 5's "High Fidelity" from 2002's Power in Numbers) and real oldie from J Geils Band ("Give it to Me" from 1973.) Oddly enough, the episode title ("Strange Days") references The Doors song, but the song doesn't make an appearance. Just the fact that I stooped to mentioning that is evidence enough of how boring the episode was. Humpf.
