Episode Summary

EDIT
When his movie "Slow Torture" fails at the box office everyone kisses his ass and tells him it was great, except for a prostitute named Wendy who got stuck in his car door and attended the premiere with him posing as a stuntwoman. His studio accidentally buys the wrong script and Peter can't stand the writer. He spends the week with Wendy, the prostitute, and tells her to read the scripts on his counter and tell him which ones are good. The only good one is called "Beverly Hills Gun Club" and it's the one that the studio wrongly bought. So now Peter has to pretend to like the writer.moreless

  • The pilot.

    6.5
    This was the pilot for the new series Action, a comedy that would lead the way for shows like Entourage and Californication. Part of the reason Action was not a bigger success can be directly attributed to it being FOX and not pay cable like the other two shows. This series thrived on raunchy comedy and cursing, something prohibited on network television.



    Jay Mohr is funny here, but this role does not suit him very well. I cannot see him as an arrogant agent, he is more of a Joe the Plumber type, and I think viewers saw through this as well.moreless
