Because It’s the L.A. Times

How does an entire column discuss HBO’s programming without once mentioning “Entourage”?

  1. Has the LAT gotten to this point yet–published in the East Coast dog trainer?

  2. Wonder why they’re grumpy with HBO, that’s the only explanation. I can’t wait for the John Adams series with Paul Giamatti and Churchill’s War with Brendan Gleeson. Just choosing those actors alone shows HBO knows what they’re doing.

  3. “Entourage” is very entertaining. It’s certainly a cut or two (or five) above “Flight of the Conchords” or “John From Cleveland,” both of which leave me flat. I wouldn’t quite rate it with “Sopranos” or “Deadwood,” though.

    The strangest thing (of many strange things) in “John” so far has been two of the very fine actors from “Deadwood” who showed up in the last episode as, respectively, a drug dealer and a physician, both looking considerably different than their cowboy-costumed characters, but sounding just about the same.

    Do you think you’re more enthusiastic about “Entourage” than I may be because of the Hollywood proximity you’re in every day? And if so, doesn’t that get tiring, when 92% of all TV shows and movies seem to be set there, with 6% of the remainder set in New York? I was perplexed this weekend on how all the robots and humans in “The Transformers” were able to get, in about four minutes, from the Hoover Dam to downtown L.A. for their climactic battles, until I remembered that there must be a warp wormhole to L.A. from every point in the known universe-as-portrayed-on-film.

  4. Entourage may be a California thing but our Texas family never misses an episode.

  6. The funny thing to me is that they don’t give a passing mention to Sex in the City which was the last HBO series to push to the edge
