What I'm Watching: Entourage

Entourage: Season 5, Episode 5 "Tree Trippers" (C+)

It really starts to show that you've got nowhere to go when everyone spends an entire episode out in the wilderness getting high on mushrooms. I'm still wary of criticizing it too much since it's not altogether unenjoyable. Eric Roberts seems to be the go-to deadbeat guest star (he was a short-lived Company man on "Heroes" and Shane's trouble-causing dad on "The L Word"). I'm only really interested here in Ari's hallucinogenic trip, though as "Heroes" has proved, sending characters out on thought-provoking journeys is always a potential risk. I am thrilled that Lloyd features prominently in this episode, though I do wish we would have gotten to see his run-in with Mrs. Ari.
