deets on the final episode of entourage

We'll miss these guys…until the movie comes out that is!

SPOILER ALERT: If you haven't seen the series finale of Entourage yet, you MIGHT want to stop reading now!

Entourage is officially over, and we were FLOORED by some of the events that took place during the series finale, which included the following:

- Ari quit his job so he could get back together with his estranged wife

- Eric and preggo Sloan made up with each other

- Vince went to Paris to get hitched

QUITE a big episode! Here's what some of the critics are saying about it:

"All good things must come to an end, [but the show] went out with a bang. In the final half-hour, the series creator/chief writer Doug Ellin resolved all of the loose ends leading up the last episode. Long live Entourage. I can’t wait for the movie."

- Jon Friedman, Wall Street Journal

"Some fans complained that Entourage grew stale, but actually it’s remarkable how fresh the series managed to stay given how temporal its setting. The show began in 2004 before the heyday of The Hills and gossip roundups by TMZ.com. The closest thing to Entourage was Curb Your Enthusiasm, which was also about Hollywood but focused on entertainment mandarins nearing the sunset of their careers."

"Sunday’s finale tied up loose ends by wrapping them around Vince’s largess: he engineered reconciliation between Eric and Sloan and even hired them a private jet to work on it alone. He invited Ari and his wife, best known as Mrs. Ari, to come with him to Paris. He helped Drama get a movie deal and saved Turtle from financial ruin. Devotion flowed both ways: Vince’s own happy ending was helped along by Drama and Turtle, who persuaded the skeptical Oxford-educated beauty Sophia (a Vanity Fair reporter) to give Vince a chance."

"People think that love can’t last in Hollywood, but in real life friendship is more capricious. Entourage nurtured the fantasy that some bonds are so precious that nothing, not even fame, money and sex, can tear them asunder."

- Alessandra Stanley, New York Times

"Does Vince deserve to find a nice girl and be happy like everyone else? Sure. But why so rushed? And why did he and Sophia have to prove their love by tying the knot (and hello? Would someone like Sophia, an intelligent woman who most recently dated a doctor from Johns Hopkins, really marry someone like Vince after a few days? I think not). After two crazy whirlwind romances and more one-night-stands than Wilt Chamberlain, couldn't the writers have just left it at, 'I met a nice girl! I'm crazy about her! We'll see where it goes' and let viewers' imaginations take the wheel."

"Much more logical was Vince's final save for Eric, and his subsequent letting-go of his best friend once-and-for-all. Deep down, the series was always about the friendship between these four guys, and seeing that friendship morph into something new and less codependent for Eric and Vince felt right."

- Kate Stanhope, TV Guide

Good-bye, Michael! Steve Carell Has Left The Office!

Filed under: TV NewsJohn KrasinskiSteve CarellSad Sad

steve-carrells-last-episode-of-the-office-will-be-extended

And just like that, he's gone. Excuse us while we continue to silently weep.

Last night, Steve Carell made his final appearance on The Office as Michael Scott, and we think that the entire cast and crew involved in the production should be very proud of themselves for such a thoughtful, funny, and truly heartbreaking 50 minutes of television!

For those of you who have yet to see it, A) GO OUT AND WATCH IT IMMEDIATELY, and B) WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD!

The majority of the episode focused on Michael Scott's last day at Dunder Mifflin. Unbeknownst to the staff, he had scheduled his flight to Boulder - to be with his fiance, Holly Flax - a day earlier than anyone knew, as to avoid the difficulty of saying good-bye to his employees.

Of course, it was an easier feat said than done and by the end of the day, Jim had figured out what was going on, which ultimately led to a heartwrenching moment between the two men as they said good-bye and let each other know how appreciative they were of their time together.

The episode wrapped with Michael at the airport, having parted with everyone but Pam - who had been out of the office for the majority of the day, assuming that she would be able to say good-bye to him later - and finally, in respect to the 'mockumentary' style of the show, removing his mic pack and asking the 'camera crew' to let him know "if this thing ever actually airs."

As he walks away, Pam manages to get through security and, without even getting her shoes on, and they both have the opportunity to say good-bye to each other.

Other emotional moments included a very sweet exchange between Michael and Erin, Andy being entrusted with Michael's top ten clients despite his difficulties as a salesmen, and Dwight finally receiving a truly touching letter of recommendation from the boss he has idolized for seven seasons.

END SPOILERS.

Ugh. Even just reflecting back on it has us emotional!

Even if you have lost interest in the series - we're the first to admit that it's had some bumpy moments, especially in later seasons - we really suggest you check this one out!

The writing is top notch, and frankly, all of the actors out-do themselves here!

Such authentic, delicate performances (which frankly, may be because they were all really that emotional filming these last scenes with Steve Carell, but it only makes it that much more touching)!

We couldn't think of a better tribute to a man who took a HIGHlarious character and filled it, as well as the show itself, with so much heart for so long!

As cautiously optimistic as we are for the future of the show, we think everyone can agree that it just won't be the same without him!

Thanks for the memories, Steve, and for making us smile and laugh for so many years!

You will be missed!

Steve Carell's Last Episode Of The Office Will Be Extended

Filed under: TV NewsSteve CarellSad Sad

steve-carrells-last-episode-of-the-office-will-be-extended

Ugh. They're going to make this good-bye as drawn out and heartwrenching as possible, aren't they?

NBC has just announced that on the night of Steve Carell's final stint on The Office, which will air on the rapidly approaching April 28th, the comedy will be extended to a special, 50-minute farewell episode, from 9-9:50pm.

If there's a silver lining to this tragedy, it's that Parks & Recreation will also have a 50-minute episode, from 9:50-10:30pm, and 30 Rock will air from 10:30-11pm, but we imagine that most of that time will be spent for us sniffling into a tissue!

We can't believe it's almost time to say good-bye to Michael Scott!

Seriously, we're a lot more depressed than we thought that we'd be.

What do U think?? Are U sad to see him go??

The End Is Here For Larry King!

larry-kings-final-episode-to-air-tonight

Wow. We can't believe that the end is finally here!

After 25 years on air, Larry King Live's final episode will air tonight on CNN!

14 special guests will be appearing on the 77-year-old's swan song, but the only two confirmed so far are Ryan Seacrest and Bill Maher!

Definitely worth tuning in, we'd say! It's going to be a tough good-bye!

Thoughts??

As The World Turns Ends After 58 Years!

Filed under: TV NewsSad Sad

astheworldturnse.jpg

Today is a sad, sad day in the world of daytime television!

The final episode of As The World Turns airs today, after a 58 year run, including 4 years on the radio, and 54 years on TV. Wow!

The show debuted in April, 1956, and has been a staple of American culture for decades.

Here's a statement about the show's ending by CBS' Senior VP of Daytime Programming, Barbara Bloom:

"The true legacy of 'As the World Turns' will be the fictional characters and stories of a small Midwest town that resonated every day with millions of viewers over multiple generations, becoming a treasured daytime institution in the process."

Still kind of hard to believe that this legendary soap opera is ending. Even if you didn't watch the show…it's still a tough reality to accept!

How do U feel about the end of As The World Turns after 58 years?
