DVD Review: ENTOURAGE: The Complete Fifth Season

HBO/Warner Home Entertainment
Release date: June 30th, 2009
MSRP: $39.98

Stars: Adrian Grenier, Jeremy Piven, Kevin Connolly, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara

For newcomers, Entourage is about film star Vince Chase and his crew. Vince is a hot, young actor that is trying to walk the fine line of being both a box office star as well as a respected actor.

Season five opens with VC having run away from the film world after his pet project Medellin became a massive commercial and critical bomb. He is licking his wounds on a remote tropical island with many lovely women and nobody telling him what to do.
Despite loving this slice of heaven, he soon finds himself on a plane back to Tinsel town. Once there, his creative fires are relit and the chaos and craziness of Hollywood is front and center once more.

In addition to Vince, season five sees his manager Eric continues to try to expand his client base, Drama deals with his return to fame as a result of his television show and Turtle…well, Turtle is still Turtle.

Season five finds the show maintaining its quality, though it does feel, at times, a little bit like some old, some old. Fans of the earlier seasons will have fun here.

Order season Five of ENTOURAGE.
