February 21, 2007: I Can't Do the Perp Walk Dressed Like This Season 1, Episode 8

It feels like I got shot in the ass. I spent my whole write-up last week talking about how I wished we could have had more of the ensemble. So what does this show do? They lock the six of them in a room together and give us almost a full 22 minutes of pure madness. I swear I knew nothing of this ahead of time. First of all, I loved that they opened the show with Squatch and Louis singing Whitney Houston's "Didn't We Almost Have It All?" As always, the song choice was completely appropriate considering they thought they had lost everything. Some shows go for subtle; this show doesn't. Of course, then Rockefeller showed up with the news that was "so off the chain that the chain itself was nothing but a distant memory." Speaking of distant memories, how many of you noticed that everything the Knights did in the apartment prior to locking themselves in the panic room was something Mick himself did in the first episode's E!-type profile? Well, he didn't shoot liquid butter directly into his mouth, but when else would anyone get the chance to do that? The countdown clock was a pretty brilliant send-up of 24. Plus, it allowed us to gauge just how much time Rockefeller was on the toilet (about 40 minutes). As he even said, "Yo man! Rome wasn't built in a day!" I had to agree with Squatch's reaction of, "Dear lord, please let you not mean what I think you mean," when Rockefeller asked for privacy. However, because I was on my couch, and not in the panic room, I was able to enjoy the sights and sounds, mostly because I wasn't subjected to the smells. Of course, they managed to kill two birds with one shot to the buttocks: the Knights escaped, and Enrico is out of the picture. Brilliant. I invite you all to check out my esteemed colleague Anthony Layser's interview with Maz Jobrani in this week's Q&A. Also, major kudos to Lenny Venito for having the guts to spend the majority of the episode shirtless. It's always nice to see someone on television who would fit in at the Jersey shore. Let's hope that Rockefeller heals soon. I hear laughter is the best medicine, so to close, here are some of the funnier lines from this episode: - "What would David Blaine do?" - "Whatever happened to Terrence Trent d'Arby? He had such a big hit with 'Wishing Well,' and then he just disappeared." - "Yeah, it ricocheted! Right into my ass!" show less
