The most influential part of popular culture that affects my life is the TV show Entourage. It is produced and directed by Mark Wahlberg, one of my favorite actors of all time. The show is about a young man from Queens, New York that has become a very promising movie star.

He grew up very poor and is now very wealthy and successful, which in my eyes is an example of one aspect of the American Dream. Despite the large amounts of money he has acquired, he never forgets where he came from. He likes the money and the toys, but he never lets it go to his head. He provided his close friends with jobs such as a manager, driver, or a chef.

Most of the episodes describe average problems that an actor would face, such as unemployment, paparazzi, and the actual physical job of working as an actor to create a finished movie or show.

This show reminds me that no matter where you come from, you can always achieve your goals, and no matter how much money you make, you should never forget where you come from.
