Time to hug it out
Sunday night. 10 p.m. HBO.
The fifth season of the show comes back after more than a year off.
When we last saw the boys from Queens, they were experiencing the epic failure of their 'Medellin' screening at the Cannes film festival. The opening of this season will deal with all of the fallout of this disaster. Vince trying to rebuild his career. E and Ari at each other's, doing their best to help Vince while dealing with their own problems. Drama dealing with his own growing success. And Turtle... well, being Turtle.
This season promises to be an exciting one, with cameos from Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Mark Wahlberg, Tony Bennett, Michael Phelps, and Phil Mickelson, as well as returning characters played by Emmanuelle Chriqui and Martin Landau (is that something you might be interested in?), and new characters played by Bow Wow, Kevin Pollack, and Fran Drescher.
Believe it or not, we're also getting the return of Dom, played by Domenick Lombardozzi, who was less than popular during his first run in the series. It remains to be seen how fans will react, but with the rabid populous craving Entourage, I doubt that many will be too bummed.
If you're a current fan, you should have a lot of fun watching this season. If you've never seen the show, do yourself a favor and check out an episode or two this weekend before the premiere. You won't be disapppointed.
