I finally managed to get caught up on Entourage the other day. The most recent episode was hysterical as per usual, but it also got me thinking of all the entrepreneurial undertones of the show. For example, the boys recently struck out on their own to produce the high-risk independent film, Medellin. Eric is now his own agent, balancing friendships, learning to trust his gut, and trying to sell clients (Anna Faris). Even Ari has his own firm.
I think it’s great that an exceedingly popular television show is really, at its core, about best friends making their own way in business and in life.
I also loved Johnny Drama’s new word: Client + Crush = “Clush.” Along the same lines, here is a new UGC slang dictionary.
