5.03 - The All Out Fall Out - Review

What Happened This Week? Once again, Vince is feeling the current of not being a star. Eric is still in the midst of pawning off his screenplay, and in an awkward twist, Ari drag races Adam Davies.

The Funniest Line? "Candice, don't be a whore."

What made the episode?
Ari being infuriated over a nude picture of his wife. Then traveling over to Adam Davies' office and slapping him. "A bitchslap for a bitch."

Stonewalling Ari. He didn't have much to do tonight, which I suppose, is fine. Generally, however, Ari is up to much more (and should be, for that matter) rather than being involved with insulting another agent. Still, Piven expertly played his role tonight.

Next Week: We're finally delving into the real meat of this season. Amanda is outraged over a potential bidding war and Drama takes his personal issues onto the View. Could be the best episode thus far. Much the same here - funny, witty and well shot (especially the chase).

Greatest Cameo Ever? Can't say I was too elated over Fran Drescher or Kevin Pollack, but T.I. had a wonderful cameo. And even managed to address the stereotype of a rapper being cast as either a gangster or a criminal.

Greatest Moment? Drama suddenly feeling ill, and cataclysmically throwing up all over Candice's cake. It's a beautifully made cake. And now, it’s been serenaded.

Overall Opinion? Last week was much better for me, but this episode was still extremely funny, but Drama moping may have ruined a little bit of it. He obviously redeemed himself at the end. It's looking like the series is hitting its stride, which should prove for some serious business between everyone involved.

This week was mainly a "filler" episode. Yes, E's storyline is moving along, but the rest of the cast was just there for the funny punchlines. This had a "day after" feel, since it seems like the thing with Justine just happened the day before and Johnny was still reeling from his breakup.
Anyone else getting sick of poor E having to sacrifice for Vince everytime and looking like a fool to rest of Hollywood? According to the previews, its coming again.....

How have the ratings been doing since the season premiere? Can you please update on that cause i'm just curious... i really hope the reason for the low rating for the season premiere was because of the vmas and sports games.

I know. I've been trying to find a report on them... but I still can't find one.

I agree that this one was a filler because the main story line did not really move on. But to me, this was the funniest episode of season 5 so far. I did not like episode 2 because it was not funny to me. Let's hope that the story will move a little faster in the next episodes.
