April 22, 2007: How Ari Got His Groove Back Season 3, Episode 15

Ladies and gentlemen, tonight's theme was emasculation, and clearly, no one was immune. I was downright dazzled watching Amanda take Vince and Eric to task for their sudden change of heart over the Edith Wharton project (and for blowing off her phone calls). While Amanda screamed and admonished her client and his hapless manager, it was clear that the balance of power has shifted. Vince is quite accustomed to getting away with murder, but it is obvious that Amanda is not going to be as patient and yielding as Ari. Then of course there is the whole matter of sexual tension, which Amanda would like to tackle head-on. I am really enjoying Carla Gugino's portrayal so far. As an actress, she has always had a bit of an edge, and as Amanda, it's underscored by a slightly neurotic vibe that makes for an interesting dynamic. I suspect that any dalliance between her and Vince could signal the demise of their working relationship. Amanda has already demonstrated that she does not enjoy being on the receiving end of Vince's noncommittal tendencies, and that's just on a professional level. As always, Johnny Drama could be counted on for a succinct rationalization of Vince's underlying attraction to his assertive agent: "All men love women filled with rage." Meanwhile, everyone's favorite jilted agent was not having an easy time of it. Still heartbroken over the loss of his beloved client, it was becoming apparent that Ari's "funk" was causing an emotional upheaval resulting in a surplus of humanity (as evidenced by his protectiveness with Lloyd and his inability to fire an ineffective agent). It was quite amusing to watch Ari on the golf course with Dr. Marcus ( Nora Dunn), experiencing a sort of reverse breakthrough as he slowly realized that he needs to stop evolving and reclaim his anger. Some other highlights: - Eric making Turtle and Drama miss a Dodgers game so they could review the Edith Wharton script on behalf of the less intelligent moviegoing public (and Drama's obvious distress at missing Bat Day). - Lloyd admitting that he and Mrs. Ari talk because they like each other. - Ari's mostly unprintable monologue in the doctor's office when he referred to Mrs. Ari as wife No. 1. - Turtle telling Johnny that he could be in a celebrity golf tournament if he was actually a celebrity. Next week we'll see the fallout from Amanda's booty call and Drama's run-in with an Ultimate Fighting Champion. I can't wait. show less

Premise: A young movie star from Queens lives the good life in Hollywood surrounded by his boyhood pals, who shamelessly milk the actor's fame for all it's worth. Modeled on the starstruck experiences of coexecutive producer Mark Wahlberg, this breezy satire has moments of inspiration, with the best bits usually coming from Vince's half-brother, Johnny Drama, a D-list actor, and Ari, the amoral agent whose savagely witty barbs earned Jeremy Piven a well-deserved Supporting Actor Emmy award.
