I agree, another solid episode.

Hopefully Margarita Levieva(Julie) will be sticking around for awhile

This show is rivaling early Entourage where you can't believe how fast the episode went by. It's just a fun ride to be on.

Enjoying this show so far. It does have an Entourage feel in that the characters are trying to make it big, keep having obstacles in their way and seem to fall overcome them with timely good luck.

The Rachel character/storyline is a waste. I really don't care to see what's going on with her. I don't even find her that attractive.

Shannyn Sossamon's supposed to be one of the main characters, yet she's only been in 4 episodes with barely any screentime.

to me it seems to have more of a laid back feeling then Entourage. And your right, Sossamon needs more screen time

It definitely is more laid back than Entourage, but it has a similar formula. It's also a lot less comedic - and that's not a bad thing.

I like seeing Ben and Cam hustling to get Crisp off the ground - even if it isn't necessarily realistic... which makes me more irritated when they cut back to a scene with Rachel and her boring life - totally grinds everything to a halt.

Okay, I'm finally caught up with this show. I have to admit I was wrong about this show. I am intrigued to see how the Crisp line winds up. Love the women they use except for the Rachel character. I cannot stand her and I think she's very unattractive. There is no way I would be moping around for her the way Ben does. She brings the show the down.

Oh, and Martha Plimpton got pudgy. She's always been a string bean. Still a great actress.

Rachel reminds me of that transgeder that was on the real world a few seasons ago.

It's a damn shame HBO doesn't bump up the production budget to cover the purchase of some bras.
