Finale Weekend

Before you

It has been a massive six or seven weeks in the making via HBO's complicated episode-per-season equation. It has kept some of us on the edge of our seats while others have simply sat back wondering, "When's something good going to happen?" Either way, HBO matriarch "Six Feet Under" ("The Sopranos" is, of course, the patriarch) and it's snotty little second-cousin twice-removed, "Entourage", wrap up this weekend in, most likely, a not-so-neat little bow.

In traditional form, however, "Six Feet"'s finale will most likely include (a) one death, (b) an argument between two people over the age of 60, (c) a sexually frustrating moment for a main character, (d) at least two disparaging (and unrelated to the storyline) comments about the GOP and (e) an ending that will not, as usual, feel like a typical ending. As for "Entourage"'s season finale — expect more of the same.

More of the same, however, isn't a bad thing when you stop to consider that two of HBO's flagship shows take place in the City of Angels, giving locals an additional activity to take part in while waiting for something good to happen. That activity, LA-location spotting. Will this week's finales include a trip to Silverlake, Sunset Boulevard hot spots, or perhaps a violent showdown at Roscoe's Chicken & Waffles?
