Good episode... What I could see of it... HBO is fucking up tonight. All the HBOs have been freezing and pixilating/skipping all night. It even cut out with 5 minutes left in the show... Major pain in the balls...

I'll watch it On Demand tomorrow clean...

Everyone see that Aquaman teaser poster? ROCK ON!!!

Okay as an individual ep., but a great season ender. I loved every ep. of this season, and am sad to see it end, even if it's temporary. I really have a problem when HBO series end their seasons, as unlike regular shows, even if they get another season, you never know when you will get to see it again. But be assured, when Vincent and Co. resurface (no pun intended), I will be there watching it!

This was the first episode I had ever seen. I think there's some sort of Free HBO weekend my cable company is doing. Anyway, I thought it was real good and plan on picking up season sets to catch up. Do they usually swear that much?

Great ending for a fantastic season. Can't wait for season 3!

Now if only those Aquaman posters really existed, I would buy one in a heart beat.

Yeah, they always swear that much... usually more, actually.

Great episode. I knew it would end that way - and am looking forward to seeing how things progress through next season.

Agreed - it's guaranteed to be a fun time. Solid finale tonight. Loved Drama's scene at his agent's office.

Personally thought this was the best episode yet out of the two seasons (second best is the last episode of season 1). Love this show....fantastic cast....only thing that needs to go is his publicity rep (Shawna)....she is annoying.

My only issue is...wooden chopsticks at a swanky Japanese restaurant. I really thought Ari was going to counter Sloane and offer Eric a job. Nice to see a little depth to the characters as well. Possibly could turn into a great show as opposed to a really good fun show.

My issue was E being offered an agent position. I could be wrong (and likely am), but I thought that you had to pass the bar exam to be an agent.

The season flew by. Can't wait for its return.

Really?! That seems odd, but I've no idea.

I based this notion on a friend of mine from law school whose sole purpose for going was that she wanted to be a sports agent. Maybe she just wanted to handle the contractual side, too. Also, my barber (a young guy who does a lot of band and concert promotion) said he couldn't be an agent since he wasn't a lawyer. This idea was reinforced on a recent episode that mentioned Ari went to law school.

But after a little bit of Googling, I think I'm wrong. Nice basic explanation of the duites of managers and agents here. It just says that agents shouldn't handle legal matters like contracts.

They do need to be licensed, though (CA's code here), but it looks like it's not hard to get a license. BTW, my favorite part of the code - "the applicant is a person of good moral character". Yep, that's Ari.

So, I'm wrong.

Or any other agent out there.

Great season finale. I'm very happy we didn't get stuck with a real cliffhanger to be resolved whenever the hell the new episodes air. These four guys have been living in a fairy tale existence, it was interesting to see it all on the verge of crumbling. Now that Eric is firmly back with Vince, I wonder if he will still feel the same way about hitching his wagon to just one star. You know all is right with these guys when their final thought is to fuck with Ari.
"Should we call Ari?"
"Nah, let him sweat it out for a day or two."

Any word on the start of Season 3? It will be before Aquaman hits network television, I hope.

Vince kind of made it sound like it...like it was stupid to throw away the movie just because she was in it. But I don't think we know that for sure. I'm hoping not...

Wasn't the wedding originally planned to take place during the time that Aquaman was going to shoot? Maybe she'll ditch the movie. I hope so. I can't stand Mandy Moore.
