Was anyone else waiting for Lovitz to be uncovered as a fraud? I figured that it was the drunk guy at the table that was suicidal. I thought that maybe there was a mixup with the photos, or that Lovitz was cheating the casino.

Sam looked hot, not enough of Mary or Belinda. I can't stand Paris Hilton, or Brian Green. Good to see Harland Williams though, even though it was not a great role.

For the first time, my TiVo failed me.

It was supposed to be recording Las Vegas, but when I turned on the TV about 55 minutes into the show, TiVo was sitting on that blue Channel Cannot be Displayed screen.

I missed the entire episode.

Did I miss anything important (character development, etc)?

This is the first episode I made it all the way through. Not impressed and probably won't watch again.

Worst episode ever and suprisingly, it had little to do with Paris Hilton's guest appearance.

She played Brian Austin Green's gold-digging fiancee.

meh

I was waiting for something to happen with Lovitz's character and it never did. Hopefully Hilton and Green never appear on my TV screen again.

I liked it. The security guard giving eBay updates to Paul Ankah was funny. Plus the performance of 'My Way' at the concert. The psychoanalist seemed like a waste of time, however- until the final parting shot: "Let's set up a code. Whenever I fall down and break my arm that's the siginal I'm interested in what you have to say." (paraphrased)


BTW, there must be something about Jon Lovitz that makes people look at him and say, "Wow! Look at him, he must really want to kill himself." Didn't he guess star on newsradio as a jumper too? (before he joined the cast)

Great episode.

I figured Paris would be cringe inducing, but I actually thought she did a fine job in the part.

Lots of nice humor between Danny and Ed.

That's what I was waiting for too. But instead he was just some out-of-luck loser who was given a free hotel room, comped $200 to gamble with which he won $6 million of the casino's money, and was finally reunited with his girlfriend.

They could have left out doucheBAG and Paris, and it wouldn't have mattered at all.

IMO the chemistry between Danny and Ed continues to make this show.

Yes, but does playing yourself count as acting?


Edit: Sam...hotness....

I wasn't overly impressed with this episode

lacked the drama and excitement

Paris Hilton is one skanky ho !

Hated seeing Sam bonk Brian Austin green's character, yuck !

Have u noticed that in the early episodes of the show, Nikki Cox wore sexxay clothes but clothes which noticeable covered up her cleavage, now she is full on showing the boobies ! i think she realised her character wasn't getting enough attention on the show and she needed to compete with Molly Simm's flawless face and Vanessa Marcil's butt from heaven !

Vanessa Marcil just gives me the Uber Hot!

she is the standout and her character is great

She is to Las Vegas what Summer is to the OC

Character development??? Are we watching the same show? Unless by "character development" you meant "a little more cleavage" then I would say "Yes, you missed some really good character development".

I watched this show the other day because during the commercials, I saw a part where Jean Claude Van Damme was getting out of a car, so I figured he was a special guest of the show, but no such luck.

More along the lines of Danny's and Mary's relationship. Geez, no need to act like that.

Didn't mean any offense by my comments. They were directed at the show, not you. I really like the show too, but it's pure eye-candy, guilty pleasure kind of stuff. Anyway, to answer your question, I don't recall anything regarding the Danny/Mary relationship in this episode.

Lovitz was also suicidal in Mr. Destiny

What's even worse than her bonking him on the show is the fact that she bonks him in real life. They have a kid together. She also used to be married to Corey Feldman, according to imdb.com (not always the most reliable source, but if true, it is something that I did not know, and something that I now hold against her). I mean BAG is bad enough...

This show was the perfect example of why Brian Green (I noticed he isn't using Austin as part of his name anymore during the opening credits) should never work again. Just bad.

Ed and Danny's interactions were great, again - liked how Ed didn't notice Danny was using his iron as a cane until the end of the show.
