7.03 - Dramedy - Review

What Happened This Week? Vince and Scotty became better friends, much to the chagrin of E; Turtle realized his business is failing; Drama finally found a script.

The Funniest Line?
"I would have twirled Lloyd... if I could lift him." Great little Ari line.

Okay, so I haven't really talked about Andrew. Let's talk. Andrew being sent away to rehab is a cop out. It's a shame, too, because Andrew salvaged Ari's story last season and saved the season from being the worst in the series. And since Andrew won't be back this season, it's a damn shame.

What Made This Episode?
First, let's start with the obvious: this is two good episodes in a row. Can anyone say that about last season? No. And that's why this season is just better. More to the point, I'm fine with Vince not being the center of the show. He's sort-of-kind-of being worked in now, but it's clear that E, Ari and Drama are where this show is heading. They've simply fulfilled everything that a character like Vince can do.
Let's talk about Drama. I like this story. I mean, his story might just be ground for more cameo's, but it doesn't matter. It's a story and it's something.

Unfortunately, it's obvious that firing Lizzie will lead to her working for Amanda. I actually like the fact that Ari may be suffering under the immense pressure because the agency is expanding so rapidly -- that's drama, and it works -- but isn't the show past this kind of pettiness? Lizzie is a junior agent. Her request was ridiculous.

Next Week? Eric might not have as quite a hold on Vince as he thought; Drama and John Stamos play ping pong; Lizzie goes to war with Ari.
