5.08 - First Class Jerk - Review
What Happened This Week? Turtle miraculously scored Jamie-Lynn Sigler's number; Ari unselfishly vetoed the idea of replacing Alan and ushered in new management: Dana.
The Funniest Line? One that I'm still chuckling over? "Why would she fuck someone who's built like a South Park character?!"
What Made This Episode? Ari Gold had to wrestle with some inner turmoil and had to suffer through a crowd pleasing beat down by Lloyd. It's welcomed change, especially because it's Lloyd. And even after being put down, Ari seemed a tad bit proud.
Gripes? She was needed for Drama's galavanting around town, but that was about it.
Funniest Cameo? Holy shit, it's Frank Darabont! Allow me to repeat myself: holy shit, it's Frank Darabont! I can't even imagine how hard securing that cameo must have been.
Madame President: You must now suffer through my incessant gloating. I was correct. Ari took himself out of the running for Alan's position and let Dana swoop in. With that, Ari now has a film for Vince and he can easily slip back into his usual antics.
Overall Opinion? Great work. It's as simple as that.
Next Week? Production is starting on Smokejumpers; Ari's old friend, Andrew Klein, comes to town.
