The lads’ last blast

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Dvds -

TO GET eight sea­sons out of this boys- be­ing- boys com­edy, set around a fic­ti­tious film star and his posse of hang­ers- on as they live the celebrity life­style, was a com­mend­able ef­fort. But by the time the last episode rolled out, you could tell this had run its race. Still, get­ting to see the lads sent off is a blast and the fi­nal run of eps fo­cuses on lit­tle more than wrap­ping things up. It fol­lows se­ries leads Vince ( Adrian Gre­nier), who bat­tles with so­bri­ety and falls head over heels for a re­porter, his man­ager Eric ( Kevin Con­nolly) and his on again off again re­la­tion­ship, and Vin­nie’s man­ager Ari ( Jeremy Piven) as he strug­gles to find the right bal­ance be­tween work and fam­ily life. Even though it’s a Hol­ly­wood- based show, fans will find the fairy­tale end­ing a lit­tle hard to swal­low. But when taken in con­text of the whole se­ries, it’s prob­a­bly the sea­son we had to have.

Ex­tras: not viewed. A fea­turette look­ing back on the se­ries with cast, crew and spe­cial guest in­ter­views.
