5.05 - Tree Trippers - Review
What Happened This Week? Because life isn't on Vince's side, he and the crew travel to Joshua Tree and embark on a mind altering trip and must ultimately decide on the direction of Vince's career. Meanwhile, back home, Lloyd and Tom wreck Ari's house with a rave.
The Funniest Line? A massive chunk of this episode has line after line that have become more hilarious by the second. So I won't choose this week, and leave only with this: "And I'm even happy to see E!"
What Made This Episode? Irregularity. This episode is the curveball this season. It's weird, it's funny, it wonderfully includes science in the most wacky way possible. It's a risky move when a character is high for an entire twenty-nine minutes, but it worked well.
Moment Of Surprise? Ari and Lloyd having a heartfelt moment between one another. It's been bubbling up for the longest time.
Gripes? I can't say I loved this episode, but it certainly isn't the worst. Ari managed to grow a little more as a character and Vince decided that he'd rather die before making an animated film. One especially focused around a dog… in the snow.
Greatest Cameo? Considering that he was in a third of the episode, it's hardly a cameo, but Eric Roberts exceeded expectations and even became a guru of sort.
Next Week? It's the week we've all been dreading. Dom is back. Turtle is now Drama's assistant. And what may be the worst situation for Ari, he must convince Alan to cast Vince. Next week. Be there.
