"Gary's Desk" Season 4, Episode 8

This season has been a real roller-coaster ride in terms of quality, but tonight's episode was most definitely a high point in my book. First, we had Gary Busey using Johnny Drama as his body art canvas. Next, Mary J. Blige stopped in for her annual Make-Me-Understand-What-I-Pay-You-For meeting. And finally, Peter Jackson offered Eric a glimpse of legitimacy as Vince's representation. All of these storylines were funny and entertaining and reminiscent of what I've always liked best about this show - how these four childhood friends navigate the ins and outs of Hollywood. I don't know if Gary Busey is as crazy as his public persona would have you believe, but he was pure lunacy tonight as he introduced Drama to the high art of body painting. Meanwhile, Ari prepped for his meeting with Mary J. Blige while mediating the sibling rivalry between identical twin agents. (Naturally, Mary J. was the only one who could tell which was which, and she happened to like the one Ari fired.) And then out of the blue we got a glimpse of our favorite long-lost publicist, Shauna, who set Eric up with a coming-out article that ended up exposing the evils of nepotism among friends in LaLa Land. In just one quick scene, Debi Mazar reminded me how much I miss her as Vince's foul-mouthed marketing maven. Let's please see more of her next season! In the end, Vince and the boys did manage to snag Mickey Rooney's former desk (with Turtle noting, "That's ironic. We want it so another small Irishman can sit at it.") and in the process set up a slightly more upscale shop for The Murphy Group. When Vince, Drama and Turtle have your back, who could ask for better associates? 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.
