Thanks for explaining about Entourage, Ramsay. From the bits of it I saw, I never thought of it as a satire. Seemed more like they were glamorizing that lifestyle. I could understand it being appealing to, say, certain young males the way some people glamorize the mafia in mobster movies like Goodfellas (not really my thing either), that look up to guys like that and want to emulate that lifestyle, but yeah, like I said, I just couldn't personally relate. Though as satire, I might appreciate it better...might give it another chance if its randomly on TV sometime and view it that way.

Oh, and I don't think all celebs are part of that plastic culture, I think a few are still uncorrupted, but yeah, most probably are. Where I live (Washington DC area), most people are all about power and status too (or at least it seems that way sometimes), so in a weird way, its like a microcosm of LA. So yeah, I get satire, I just figured this show glorified that lifestyle vs satirizing it. I've heard its actually loosely based on Mark Wahlberg's life and friends.

Now characters like Rick and Shane (ahem) on The Walking Dead...now that I can relate to lol
