What if I was to tell you that an episode of "Entourage" would feature guest appearances by Oscar winner Martin Landau and the guy who plays Wee-Bey on "The Wire"? Is that something you would be interested in?
What started off kind of slow turned out to be one of the best episodes of the season, thanks largely to Landau's great performance as the out-of-touch Bob Ryan, who's not so out-of-touch that he doesn't realize how out-of-touch he is. (Get me?) I had a feeling that the meeting was going to somehow turn out in Eric's favor, but the shot of E, Vince and Bob strutting through Ari's office to the tunes of "Blitzkrieg Bop" still put a big smile on my face (especially as I noticed the weird yet appropriate walk Landau had given Bob).
The subplot with Vince and Lindsay Sloane (whom I've liked ever since "Grosse Pointe") didn't really go anywhere, unfortunately. "Friends" did the whole celebrity list years ago, and unless there's a follow-up where Lindsay's fiance decides he's suddenly not cool with it, this felt like filler.
On the plus side, there was Drama's pathetic attempt to play Columbo with Saigon's mom and Hassan Johnson doing his best Suge Knight impression as Saigon's old/new manager. Sweet.
