5.10 - Seth Green Day - Review
What Happened This Week? Eric wrestled with Seth Green over remaining feelings for Sloan; Production continued on Smokejumpers, providing a startling revelation for Vince.
The Funniest Lines? Plural. "We can do it the old fashioned way and piss in his O.J." "I have skill. Something of which, you, my friend, do not have."
The Funniest Cameo? At this point, I'm willing to call Bow Wow a cameo. His sucker punch was disastrous and oddly hilarious. Although I hate to see pain inflicted, it did feel nice to see Eric vindicated.
What Made This Episode? Ari and Barbara battling over control. Ari's disgust or rather disliking of Barbara continues, but it's nothing new. Ari is feeling the hate side of his relationship and soon enough, there won't be a relationship he can salvage. He was willing to split his entire agency up over a friend.
Most of all, I'm loving each revelation about Vince. He coasted through Medellin, but he won't fly through this film. Verner is actually challenging him.
Gripes? Why do I seem to dislike every returning character this season? Seth Green took up time that could have been spent elsewhere. His lines simply weren't funny (was I only the one who was embarrassed to watch the first phone call between Seth and Eric?).
The Best or the Worst? Must I choose? It's… in the middle. It certainly has a rewatch-ability factor that I've always loved about this show.
Prediction: Andrew Klein is being groomed to take over Barbara's half of the agency. As Ari said last week -- "He's supposed to be where I am now." Giving him Barabra's position opens Andrew to all of Hollywood.
Overall Opinion? I can't see where this season is headed. Each episode is as shocking as the one before.
Next Week: Vince clashes with the director; Turtle and Jamie hook up.
