Entourage Review (SPOILERS)

I know that HBO has renewed this for another season but honestly where can the show go from here? The characters aren't that interesting anymore. Eric is a successful agent and getting married (and the whole subplot with Ashley was pretty weak anyway; she wasn't even close to competing with Sloan). Vince has been successful, unsuccessful and back to successful (and we've hardly even seen him this season, as the writers realized that he's not interesting anymore). Drama is retiring from the acting business, after a final up-yours from Hollywood. Ari owns the biggest agency in the city and has already turned down the only position that would make him more powerful. Honestly, the only two characters that are interesting anymore are Lloyd and Turtle, as we saw during this season, because they got more airtime than any other characters. But now their plotlines are resolved: Turtle's done with Jamie Lynn Sigler and Lloyd is working with Ari as an agent. So honestly, where can the show go from here, besides to re-hash material it's already covered? 1. Drama becomes a syndicated chef 2. Turtle uses his business degree to become the biggest drug dealer in Los Angeles, and the show turns into him vs. Mexican gangs in brutal wars for turf (Entourage: The Streets of LA) 3. Eric cheats on Sloan (which he did before, in Season 3, but there is no other way to make a married man interesting) 4. Better yet, Sloan cheats on Eric with one of the other guys on the show. I don't think that the guys in this show have ever competed for women, been jealous, grown apart or tried to steal each other's girlfriends. This is suspicious. 5. Vince wants to start acting in plays, off-Broadway (? Im really struggling for ideas here) 6. Now that Ari owns everything he funds a vanity project featuring a star actor, a hot-shot agent and his entourage, in a meta-meta-Entourage. Anyway, the show will have to go someplace radically different in season 7. I respect shows like Extras and the Wire for ending when they ran out of things to cover. A friend of mine wanted to see a sequel to District 9 but honestly where can that story go? Matrix 2 and 3, anyone? Sometimes it's best just to end things when they reach a natural stopping point.
