Storyline

The boys are less than pleased that Vince's latest fling, Fiona, has overstayed the 3-day rule that Vince instated long ago. At the gym, her new age approach to exercise bothers Drama. Her vegan lifestyle seems to be bothering everybody in the house. Eric is re-introduced to an old acquaintance who may have just the script that Vince has been looking for: a story about a guy from Queens. Turtle tries to find a way around a weed drought in LA. Over lunch with Ari, Eric learns that the producer of "Queens Boulevard" doesn't like Vince. Fiona overhears Turtle's dilemma and offers to take the guys to her Sherpa. The Sherpa (played by Val Kilmer) happily treats them all to some of his organically grown, pesticide-free "herbal supplements" and gets a little paranoid when Eric's phone rings. Eric and Vince have dinner with Scott Wick, the movie's producer, thanks to Ari. It's not going very well until Vince offers to hook Scott up after admitting to being high during the meeting. The three ... Written by Anonymous

Quotes

The Sherpa: The Earth is moving. Did you feel that? Everything. All the time. Dimensions we can't even see. Everything is evolving. Turtle, you're a dove.
Turtle: That's cool. Can I hit that, Sherp? Thanks.
Eric: You afraid of getting busted?
The Sherpa: Busted? I'm entrusted, man. I don't steal. I heal. We're not getting stoned. We're getting honed. My probation officer's one of my best customers. I'm a prisoner. I'm a prisoner of, uh, war. War on drugs. It's all so negative, man. I mean, the Man's most positive positive-tive is a...

Kilmer, dude!
29 April 2008 | by MaxBorg89See all my reviews

Celebs and their girlfriends, huh? There's nothing more annoying than a starlet's romance scandal filling the tabloids, and in this episode of Entourage, the issue is dealt with in a special way.

Still riding high on the success of Head On, Vince isn't too bothered to look for his next project, preferring to spend time with his new squeeze Fiona instead. Sadly, the guys don't really like her: she's a vegetarian, into tantric sex (you have to wait for hours before actually getting some) and nearly replaces Eric as Vinny's script reader. It just so happens she comes very in handy, though, when all of L.A. runs out of weed and she knows the one person who can get them good stuff right away.

Business-wise, things go a bit smoother once Eric runs into Josh Weinstein, a hotshot agent who hands him the screenplay of Queens Boulevard, an indie film that appears to be tailor-made for Vince (it takes place in his old neighborhood). This, of course, leads to another quarrel with Ari, whose ego is bigger than ever ("You think there's something in this whole f*cking universe you know that I don't know about?").

Okay, so the tabloid thing isn't really there (wait for Season Two), but the Fiona subplot is very funny, especially in the last part, where we get to meet her "sherpa": Val Kilmer. That's right, the former Batman has the time of his life playing the ultimate stoner (imagine Jeff Bridges in The Big Lebowski, twice as high), a role that can easily mark the climax of his career alongside Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Sure, someone could complain about the show's light approach to the subject of drugs, but hey, this is a comedy, remember? If you want a serious take on the matter, stick with The Wire.
