Latest Video: FilmCrunch 067: Hairspray, Chuck & Larry, Premonition reviewed
At the risk of spoiling part of last night’s episode of Heroes, I felt like talking about it a bit, because this was a pivotal moment in the series that hints at many things to come. Namely, for the first time, Peter was able to use a power acquired from someone else, without being in the vicinity of the person.
So how did it happen? As we saw in the show last night, Mr. Invisible threw Peter off of the roof of The Artist’s building, thinking that it would force Peter to fly. Instead, something more spectacular happened ... Peter crashed into the roof of a taxi. Peter explained his miraculous survival as having thought of The Cheerleader just before he landed, but I think there was more to it.
Eric wakes up to find a restless Vince standing over him. Still bothered by the Ramones movie snafu, Vince tells Eric that they should fire Ari. Ari—either sensing Vince’s anger or wracked with his own guilt—is startled awake. He tells his wife he believes he will be fired that day.
At breakfast, Turtle jumps all over the axing Ari plan—but Drama is not so quick to judge. Johnny encourages Vince to take some time before making a big decision. At the very least, he should entertain the thought of meeting other agents before he goes completely without representation. Vince decides to go with his gut and tells Eric to call Ari. Eric refuses and makes him do his own dirty work.

As some of you might remember, TV Envy brought you live remarks during the 2006 Oscars. I had so much fun last time - I thought I would do it again for the 58th Annual Emmy Awards. Unfortunately, since I live on the West Coast, live blogging is not possible. I could cheat and write this while reading the online reports—but I won’t. I will keep my eyes focused on the TV screen before me and make catty remarks as I think of them in Pacific Standard Time.
Although I’m still a bit bitter that neither Lost or Desperate Housewives were nominated this year (apparently due to the recent changes in the nomination process), my annual viewing must go on. If someone can manage to eke out a win for either Entourage, The Office or Scrubs, I may be able to forgive and forget.
Okay—let the time-delayed festivities begin!
In last week’s episode, Turtle was waking up to a big day…this time, it was Drama. Nervous about his first day shooting the pilot, Johnny gets all dressed up. Unfortunately, his outward appearance does not mask the ball of nerves inside. When Turtle jokes to Drama about playing Vince’s ‘brother’ in the Ramones movies, Johnny lashes out at him. Worried that he will suffer a panic attack, the boys suggest ways that he can relax: either take some Xanax or ‘relieve’ himself before filming. Drama decides to go with neither.
Turtle wakes up and preps for a big day. He and his client, rap artist Saigon, are about to seal the deal on a recording contract. On his way into the kitchen, he asks the boys for a second opinion on his outfit. The boys pretend to be clueless about Turtle’s meeting and wonder why he’s gotten all dressed up. Turtle is convinced that his friends have forgotten about the most important day of his life, but they finally give up the whole joke. Eric had his car waxed for the occasion and Drama even prepared him a special Pop Tart. Vinnie preps to give him his regular paycheck, but Turtle says that he may not need his money anymore. To cap the morning off, Drama offers his driving services to Turtle. Eric then sets off to see Ari and tells Vince that he should go with him. It’s been a week since they’ve last heard from him. Vince declines and decides to spend an unemployed day alone at the bookstore.
Although Vincent is still in need of a job, thanks to Turtle, he is not in need of any money. Vince has agreed to attend a Las Vegas club event in exchange for a quick $100,000. Although the boys all plan on joining Vinnie for the trip, Drama is not quick to sign up. Now that he’s in the process of shooting a pilot, he wants to takes things a bit more seriously. But when he is reminded that his favorite masseuse, Ken, works at the Hard Rock Hotel, Johnny decides to jump on board. He could use some hands of gold before he heads back to work.
Vince and the boys are heading to the agency. Ari has another ‘surprise’ for Vince and has asked them to stop by. Drama uses the car ride as an opportunity to read aloud the pilot’s script. The audition Lloyd scored for Drama will give him an opportunity to work with Ed Burns. Given Drama’s history with Ed, he believes he will have a good chance of getting the part. Meanwhile, Lloyd has been swamped answering calls all day at the office. Word about Ari’s new building space has leaked and now their lines have been flooded with inquiries. Although Lloyd hate lyings, Ari insists that he continue to deny, deny, deny.
Already embarrassed by the outcome of his threesome, Eric faces more humiliation from the boys for snuggling a woman he wasn’t even allowed to sleep with. To make matters worse, Eric needs to face both ladies again sooner than he had hoped. Sloane is hosting a charity auction that evening and wants him to stop by for a second opinion. Hoping that he can bail early from a potentially awkward meeting, he recruits the boys to come with him.
The boys interrupt Drama from a day parked in front of a video game. Although he still hasn’t heard from Ari, his new supposed agent, he agrees to go out with the crew. Apparently the brothers are 0-for-2 when it comes to Ari calls. Vince hasn’t heard a peep since he told off Alan Gray, the President of Warner Bros.
During their night out, Eric runs into his girlfriend, Sloane. The guys are a bit weirded out that a girl has invaded their group, but Sloane swears their meeting was a mere coincidence. She is actually meeting up with a girlfriend from out of town. When Vince is later approached by a girl from his past, it is clear that the boys night out is now officially over. Ari takes his turn interrupting their evening when he calls Eric with ‘big’ news: Alan has agreed to bump up Vince’s paycheck to $10 million. Unfortunately, Eric and Vince are not impressed with the ‘liar’ and insist on holding out for the requested $20 million. Ari warns them not to get on Alan’s bad side…right before Eric hangs up. Vince is too busy going home with his lady friend to be fazed by Ari’s call, but Johnny is still feeling neglected. Thankfully, Drama’s mood is temporarily lifted when Sloane’s friend, Tori, finally arrives at their table.
