LAist is still sweating after last night's harrowing slate of L.A.-themed television on HBO. First off, you've got the new series Entourage, produced by Mark Wahlberg. This show covers the slice of Los Angeles that our site tends to avoid - it's about a preening, air-headed movie star who lives the good life with a posse of high school friends. It's received good reviews, but we wonder, why? It doesn't take a lot of creativity for a Hollywood movie star to present a pastiche of the high life. The characters are unbearably simple - Adrian Grenier's movie star is too stupid to take seriously, and his starlet-obsessed Italian buddy is just annoying. It's a little cruel to force people to sit through this before they get to Da Ali G Show.

Meanwhile, Six Feet Under continued its fantastic new season with the usual - aggrieved Nate, crazy Ruth, restless Claire. But the show got all Sopranos on us when David gets carjacked and taken hostage by a maniacal thug who forces him to go on a crack run to MacArthur Park. He spares David's life as the episode ends, so we hope that the show hasn't finished its action bent - we'd love to see the crackhead receive some payback. Can't wait for next Sunday...
