IT'S META-META-META-FICTION: I know this is probably attempting to provide excessive analysis of Entourage and the level of reality/fiction on which the show plays, but did anyone notice that last week, Vince encounters Randall Wallace and states that he can't see the upcoming film Secretariat, a film in which Entourage co-star Kevin Connolly apparently has a substantial role (5th billing on the poster). So, do Kevin Connolly as actor and Eric Murphy as character co-exist, or is the Secretariat existing within Entourage one where someone other than Kevin Connolly plays that role? It almost makes you find Entourage something more than utterly disposable.

    If it's the latter, I may not be able to bring myself to watch Entourage anymore, because I don't want to spend any time in a world where Jeremy Piven isn't in Judgement Day.  Or Singles.  "....Of course, you may be busy."

    This reminds me a bit of Mr Show: how they would often use various media forms to transition from sketch to sketch. So the end of Sketch A would have the camera pull back and reveal that Sketch A was happening on a television in a boardroom, thus beginning Sketch B in the boardroom, etc.

    I always wanted to plot a 'map' of Mr Show episodes using the media transitions as a sort of depth marker (having the prior sketch being media in the beginning of the new sketch meant you were moving "up" or "out", having the new sketch start as media within the end of old sketch meant you were moving "down" or "in"), then see if the show actually ended on the same 'plane' of reality it began on.
