    I love the clips of Ari Gold. He seems hilarious. I've never watched the show.

    Is it worthwhile to start at season one, episode one? Is he a big part of the show? Is simply watching the movie sufficient?

    I say this as a person who watched all the episodes.

    Avoid it- the show is completely vapid and there is no real conflict to any of it. A big reason i watched it was because I worked in Los Angeles, working in the industry- and a lot of it hit home to me. But i never understood why anyone outside los angeles would waste their time on it. But in 2015- all of it is dated on top of all its other weaknesses.

    It was a fun show but took a complete nose dive for the last 2 seasons. If I was you I would watch and just skip the last 2 seasons and rewatch the movie as the finale.

    That's pretty much it.

    I admit, I enjoyed the first few seasons. It's a fun little show... Ari and Drama were funny. Very shallow, but probably accurate glimps into what it would be like to get famous, rich, and bring your "boys" along for the ride. The show got terrible towards the end.

    show is fun and entertaining, and ari is a huge part of it all the way through. watch a few episodes of season 1 and see for yourself, if you don't like it then, bail. if you liked the movie and like ari, you will like the series. enjoy

    It would be more productive to catch up on your sleep.

    I tend to avoid anything with Jeremy Piven in it.

    It's a hilarious series, lots of laughs, hot pieces of ass, and just plain fun to watch.

    You sound like a pretentious homo with a chip on his shoulder incapable of enjoying anything, no wonder you didn't like it.

    Yes, totally watch the earlier seasons! I was huge devotee of the show but it started to get very ridiculous, redundant and wiggery in the later seasons. As you could imagine that happens when Marky Mark is an EP.

    In addition, I absolutely HATED the movie and I thought I was gonna love it. The over-the-top wiggery implausibilities were off the charts, and it was a very lazy story as well as overall writing.

    Kevin Connelly's character "Eric Murphy" WAS the ONE fish-out-water and relatable guy you could root for. And now they turned him into a debaucherous, morally bankrupt, cliched', shallow shitbag wigger like the rest of them. And now I hate everyone in it's closure with the film.

    Through season 4 it was good. When they pussified Billy Walsh that was a sign to give up.

    I loved the first 2 seasons. Started declining with all the forced cameos by the end. The finale was atrocious.

    The chick who was Ari's wife had an absolutely amazing ass. That's all I really remember from the show.
