The show is about a group of friends who work in Hollywood. I've heard very good things about it but never actually seen it before. I'd heard that Jeremy Piven plays an agent
who acts like an ass. I thought it was a comedy, but it's not quite that, either. It's what I usually refer to as a light drama. It has some comedy, some drama, but it's not like a laugh riot. It's not there just to make you chuckle, like, say, "Curb Your Enthusiasm" or "Family Guy". The part I find funniest is how Ari treats his assistant, Lloyd. The rest is
not laugh-out-loud funny, but it is enjoyable.
The show's characters are all really likeable (even Ari). You just really like these guys and wish you would hang out with them. That is part of the appeal. For anyone who loves the inside world of Hollywood, this is a fun show to watch. It really shows you the ins and outs of that business world. The show merges reality with fiction the same way that
"Curb Your Enthusiasm" does, in the sense that some actors play fictional characters, and some actors play themselves (or at least fictional versions of themselves).
The sixth season is all about how most of the characters are doing really well, at least for a while, after becoming successful. I gather seasons 1-5 were more about how they were struggling to get there. It's hard to say who is my favorite character. I really like Eric, who's known as E to his friends. He reminds me a little of comedian Hal Sparks. But it's a great ensemble. The writing is excellent. At first I wasn't sure if I wanted to keep watching the show, but it really sucked me in. I was done watching the first DVD disk before I even realized it. It is definitely worth renting or buying.
Now that I am sucked in, I guess I will have to go back and watch seasons 1-5. Season 7 just started on HBO, too, this week.
There are many great extras. They have recaps of the first three seasons of the show, audio commentaries, the usual stuff. There is a good overall extra called "Life at the Top", all about this season. There is a fun feature, "A Day at the Speedway", about how they filmed one scene in the show, where they raced cars. Then there is another extra where Matt Damon directs the character Vince in a short commercial for charity, while Ari watches. It is pretty funny just on its own.
