Storyline

The boys attend a boxing match at the Staples Center where they bump into various celebrities. While Turtle and Drama talk up Luke Wilson about his new home theater system, Jimmy Kimmel invites Vince to come on his show to promote "Head On." In the morning, the foursome discuss their past relationships with women, and the consensus (all but Eric) seems to be that it's better to leave a girl dangling than break up with her. Drama also fills Vince in on his old grudge against Jimmy Kimmel. Later on, Eric tries his best to do a pre-interview for Vince's appearance while they all enjoy a game of golf. Afterwards, he breaks it to Vince that one of his one-night stands will be appearing on the show as well. The day of the show, Kristen stops by the guest house to pick up some things from Eric where the visit quickly turns into "break-up sex." Meanwhile, Drama and Turtle visit Rufus, who tells them that if Vince plugs his company on the show, they'll get their home theater system for free. ... Written by Anonymous

Chase vs. Kimmel
2 April 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Isn't it nice when you have a famous friend whose agent can get you great seats for any major event in Los Angeles? Yes, it's very nice, and that's probably why this episode of Entourage opens with a boxing match. Turtle and Drama take advantage of the situation, given every celebrity that matters is present, to chat with Luke Wilson about a home theater system they're interested in, and Jimmy Kimmel asks Vince to appear on his show to promote Head On. Vinny accepts without hesitating, only to discover Johnny has some kind of unfinished business with Kimmel.

Aside from the business aspect, the show starts digging in more personal stuff from now on, as this episode introduces Eric's on-and-off girlfriend Kristen (Monica Keena) and the first stages of his relationship with Emily. And though it is E who stars in most of the romantic subplots, Vince gets to do his part as well, most notably in this show when he discovers a former one-night-stand of his is going to be on the show as well.

Following the bad review of the previous ep, the subject is now talk shows, which will have a quite significant part in future episodes. None of those, however, are as hilarious as this, and it is entirely due to one person. No, it's not Jeremy Piven, for once. It's actually Kevin Dillon, who gets away with the best lines of the episode (when accused of loving nothing but himself, he retorts: "What's not to love!") and steals the limelight in the touchingly brilliant ending, well aided by Kimmel. Oh, and those who worry about putting ads in blockbusters should take a good look at the home theater storyline: this is how you do smart product placement.
