The lads’ last blast
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.
