I don't know what is wrong with me. Three years ago a colleague encouraged me to watch the HBO series "Entourage". He was persistent. He kept telling me that I would dig the show..I would bet that he told me 30 times....I completely blew off the advice.
About three weeks ago another friend asked if I had ever seen "Entourage". "No" was my answer...He handed me the DVD collections of the first two seasons and told me I had two weeks to view them all. I took the DVD's, basically to be polite, and brought them home. I decided to see what all the fuss was about and popped in the first season, disc one.
Needless to say that before I got into the third episode I was completely hooked.
Yes, I apologized to the first guy and sold him the series is amazing. (and it is fresh and new, and fast paced morsel of pure entertainment)
But the real question is; why didn't I pull my head out earlier? "it happens" you say?
You have to realize that I did this with a long list of wonderful shows; (I am thinking back as far as I can)
Letterman- took me a year to connect
Seinfeld- same story. Now I have all the episodes memorized
The Office- Both the US and UK version
Weeds- another worthy HBO series
I just don't listen.
