Brief spoilers for last night's "Entourage" coming up just as soon as I have a seat at the bar...
I suppose "Pie" was a slight improvement over recent episodes, in that showing Vince at work, in a circumstance where he's no longer top dog -- and where the director doesn't seem to have much use for the former Number One Star in the World -- has potential to be interesting, and in that they're introducing the wonderful Gary Cole to the cast. (He'll be a regular next season, which may be the only reason I'd look forward to next season.)
But the Cole story didn't amount to much more than set-up for stuff down the road, and Vince is such a flat and passive character that it's hard to get any comedy out of him, even in situations (like wimping out in Jason Patric's trailer) that might have been funny with a different character (or on a different show).
I continue to be unable to kick the habit -- I guess I need a handful of shows to complain about every year, and "Entourage" provides plenty of fodder for that -- but I'm not enjoying it.
What did everybody else think?
