Episode Summary

EDIT

    One of the most notable things about this second episode is in the developing relationships between characters. Whilst the pilot was essentially all about Lucy, Don and Holt, Blogan helps evolve on the rest of the cast, and expose the ruthless way Lucy gets inside people's heads and manipulates them for her own personal gain.



    Lucy continues to intrigue. She's facing pressure from a rival magazine, and is also majorly frustrated in the sex department. She can't orgasm with an actual person, and prefers to sit alone in her bed with a vibrator instead of sleeping with real people. I also found it creepy how she finally managed to climax after numerous attempts this episode only after reading her new DirtNow magazine, which speaks volumes on what kind of person she is.



    I also liked the scenes featuring interaction between celebrities and the paparazzi. The scene featuring the Blogan couple walking down the beach with a ton of photographers hurling abuse at them in order to get a reaction was really shocking to see, even if I guess it's unsurprising that they use these methods to get their "money-shots". But, the episode also reveals that, as much as famous folk complain about paparazzi intrusion, they need them to survive in Hollywood, and the way that both Holt and Julia are reviving their careers thanks to huge spreads in a popular tabloid is really interesting to see develop. The supporting cast is also becoming a lot more intriguing. Willa is now a complete mini-Lucy, using her nephew to get stories from a clueless nanny, and showing that she desperately wants to rise up in her boss's estimations and become more than just "random reporter #7". I also enjoyed Lucy's interaction with her bosses, and Don's hallucinations of Kira Klay, even if I found the whole "photographing the starlet's corpse" completely unbelievable.



    Probably better than the pilot, Dirt's second episode concentrated more on the risky game between stars and the media that can make or break them, and it made it all the more better.

  • This Lucy girl is ruthless!!

    10
    I still like it! This girl Lucy is ruthless. She actually had the brilliant idea of sending Don to Kira’s funeral and actually taking a picture of her dead body inside the casket. And although the average person may be thinking ‘oh that’s the worst she could have done’ well apparently it was not, because when those pictures developed incorrectly she sent Don one more time to the crematorium where they had her and had him take some more pictures of her. It was insane but somehow I loved it. Also the basketball player that his picture taken while cheating on his wife on the last episode, went to Don’s apartment and was pretty much pissed off, but nothing major really happened there because he realized Don was a wacko and just left. There was a story about some celebrity couple that pretended to be pregnant when in fact they were just using a surrogate because the mother didn’t want to lose her figure due to a baby, I thought that very out there too. But the icing on the cake is that now Don isn’t only obsessed with his dead cat but also with the dead actress he photographed, Kira. That should be interesting if he continues to see her in places. Well anyways, this episode gets a perfect 10 from me!moreless
  • Nothing like the Pilot.

    8.0
    Like the summary says, nothing like the Pilot. The Pilot was more revealing and more not centered on a person. Well Lucy's friend struggles with the illusions still and he thinks the dead girl is a ghost or something hauinting him. Really weird. Rick Fox's character gets desperate! Lucy ones again gets great headlines for both magazines. Now and Drrt! She does struggle to keep her job safe and proposses to her boss to merge both magazines. Honestly I think the idea is genius. Lucy also finds pleasuring herself alone is much better than with a partner. Well we all have preferences, don't we?moreless
  • Just what a thinking person looks for in a series.

    9.5
    I'm so impressed with this new series. It shows like a HBO or Showtime series. The characters seem deep and the storylines are exciting---and not mainstream. It seems like every new series either involves crime scenes or hospitals somehow, so it's refreshing to see a new show that dares to go outside of that same, seemingly, "safe" boundary. Hard to believe that Lucy was once goofy Monica or that David Arquette of the wacky wardrobe would have ANYTHING at all to do with this. Very impressive. I hope this show catches on. Sometimes seems like the American public doesn't "get" a show unless it's formula is very, blatently written out for us.moreless
  • It is great to see a series like this, especially after Sex in the City. Courtney looks better than ever. Congrats on your new series.

    8.9
    Plot keeps getting better. Camera work is unique as bouncing back and forth but I actually like it. Courtney looks better than ever and is doing a fabulous job leading this cast. Don't want to compare this at all to Sex in the City, but it is great to have a series back on tv again for that late 20-45 range. Very impressed with the series and hope it continues. Love the angle of the whole smut magazine, paparazzi deal. Think it is awesome. Can't wait to see future episodes. You definately have a follower. Good luck with the series.moreless
