I think the show is starting to hit it's stride with these last two episodes. Though it does make it seem like everything up to this point was a waste of time since his jeans apparently suck, but his t-shirts are what will get his business going.

The Rene stuff was good and Rachel's boyfriend grabbing that dude and making out with him while tripping on ecstasy was pretty funny.

I love the show. Everything about it.

Nothing I don't like.

Do you know where I can get some X?

Top right drawer..

I'm enjoying this show a lot. Luis Guzman continues to steal the show, but the rest of the cast is making him work a little harder for it now.

I wouldn't consider the jeans storyline a waste of time (even if it's completely over). This isn't a show about how Ben becomes a fashion mogul. It's a show about various people in various situations hustling in New York City. Ben, Cam, Rachel, Rene, even (to a lesser extent) Darren and Kaplan are all hustling to get to where they want to be, and that's the focus -- the hustle, not the destination.

Yea the whole club scene was pretty damn funny. Something tells me Rachel is not completely over Ben so it should be interesting. I agree the last 2 episodes have by far been the best so far. Lets hope it keeps it up

Another solid ep last night. Hopefully this show is pulling in decent ratings -- would like to see it get picked up for another season.

I really like this show. The theme song reminds me of something that would be on The Wire.
