Pushing Daisies is all you need...until you realize it ended to quickly ;_;
The writing in Entourage is fuckin unbelievable, I have too disagree with your teacher. The character of Jeremy Piven would be nothing if it wasn't for his amazing lines, you have to write that shit down and before "Ari Gold" there was no character like this ever.
You might not believe that the content in Entourage is great, because it really isn't...but the reason why it has so much success is because it seems like a pretty accurate and real depiction of that lifestyle but with alot of humour. Doesn't mean that if you don't have high drama stuff that it's garbage.
The writing is genious in my opinion and that style of writing will most probably influence alot of writers in the near futur, if it already hasn't.
