This show is just painfully godawful now. Before the "then stop watching it" comments come, I fell in love with this show during it's first 2-3 seasons and am invested. Gotta see it through, but damn is it pitiful.

I wonder if Runkle will make it out of this season without a homosexual encounter...

This show has fallen so far from what it could've/should've been.

Well, at least Russel Brand and Sharon Osborne impressions are better than the actual thing!

You know, I'm just going to keep watching. It's a talented cast and there's always something funny each episode. It really should have ended a few seasons ago.

Hey we got some partial nudity from Maggie Grace. She has a really nice behind.

Runkle's encounters with that gay client crack me up.

at Runkle testing to see if gay porn turns him on.

Did anyone notice the copyright at the end for the porn footage they used? I guess the gay porn footage was from Vivid.

at them asking if he got his dick sucked.

Yeah kind of a strange season so far. Some of the characters definitely look like parodies of Russell Brand or Ozzie Osbourne.

Wow, I could've sworn they'd already announced this as being the final season. Whatever, I'll keep watching (and bitching). I've been invested too long and like the characters too much to quit even though the writing has become god awful.

The funeral made it feel like the setting of the show was in the late 80's/early 90's with the attire the "rock stars" and funeral attendees were wearing... and the fact that there were so many people who still gave a shit about them.

Watching these episodes it amazes me that they even attempted to pass Maggie Grace off as a teenager in the Taken movies.

I saw his name in the credits when it was over but I didn't realize who he was. I assumed he was a guest at the funeral and had a quick pan-by. I guess I was close...

I did. I was like "You're cameoing as a dead body?" And then they did the hologram bit and I then went "And you're faking an English accent too?"

The body double who jumped into the pool looked much better.

Since I grew up listening to the hair metal, and had seen Sebastian Bach on the Rush documentary recently, I picked up on it being him pretty quickly
