    Worst. Idea. For. A. Mini. Story. Arch. Ever. Added a character like Dom to a comedy show is one of the worst ideas anyone could ever think of and I really raise an eyebrow at the writer that decided to have that guy take up almost a full hour of season 3. Four episodes into season 3 you have 2 perfect episodes and 2 of the worst rated episodes of the entire series. Dom isnt funny and his being on the show brought it down...and it didnt take much. The fact that he stole the Shrek wasnt all that shocking and the best part of the epsiode is when he left. The only bg thing of note in this episode is the possible schedule conflict between Aquaman 2 and vinces other movie he would like to do. Next week looks like we get things back on track, but this epsiode was just terrible.moreless
  • "Guys and Doll" was a great way to wrap up the Dom situation. It was apparant that he didn't "fit" in the gang and he had to go.

    This episode was great to watch for real fans because Medillion made it's way back on the scene. After a great scene of Ari speaking to the gang, and Dom, in which he pulls down a wall hanging mirror and pours a very large amount of cocaine (powdered cream) onto the mirror and announces that Vince is going to go after the coke capitol of the World with Medillion. In order to land the gig, they must go to the director's house and "charm the pants off him". Rob Rubenstein ended up loving Vince, partially because of a story told by Dom that epitimizes who Vince is. The night seemed to go off without a hitch until Rob's prized first Shrek doll comes up missing the next morning. All fingers point toward Dom.

    Although Vince believed Dom wouldn't steal the doll; Eric, Turtle, Drama, and Ari set out to find evidence agaisnt Dom. They all come up empty handed, until Vince catches Dom's "tell" of scratching his neck, and coaxes Dom into confessing. The guys cleverly get the doll back to Rubenstein without incriminating anyone. Medillion sounds to be all good now...right?moreless
  • Dom proofs them right

    I like the look of Vince´s face when he realizes that E, Drama and Turtle were right about Dom. It hurts him that his friend doesn´t seem to find the right way in life but he doesn´t want to be living with a \"friend\" who lied to him, so it´s back to the fab 4! Vince is definately less \"hollywood\" than Drama and Turtle!!!
  • A big improvement over last week's episode

    This episode begins with Vinnie being offered the movie of his dreams, one that he wanted since last season. Mettaeyan (spelling?)-The Pablo Escavar story. He meets with the mastermind of the project at a party and talks business. Everything seems to be going great and an offer is expected in the morning. But, the director's beloved Shrek doll is stolen and the primary suspect is of course Dom. As Ari said, there were 300 people at the party. 299 of them did not serve time.

    E is convinced that Dom has indeed stolen the doll and Drama and Turtle search the house for it. Later, Ari and E try to bluff Dom with a security tape which is actually a tape from Ari's daughter's Batmitzpha from last season (hilarious). Dom still denies it, but Vince sees he touched the back of his neck, his tell tale sign of lying. Dom confesses, turtle throws the doll over the fence of the directors house and all is good once again.

    This episode does indeed spell the end for Dom, as nobody can trust him anymore. This episode was much more funny and better written than last weeks with a better storyline.moreless
  • Dom might have subtaged Vince's chance of getting the movie role of his dreams.

    This episode wasn't great but it wasn't bad, it was just an average episode.

    Its monday and Everyone whose everyone in hollywood wants Vince Chase. His getting offers through the roof, offers that are willing to pay 9 million. But Ari want sattle, he wants Vince to "work for what he wants" and thats the movie the Medillon, a movie Vince had his eyes on for quite a while {since season 2} and now he has a chance. All he has to do is go to a party at the producers house and charm him. The only problem is...DOM. Dom's cool doing the party matter of fact he even ends up telling the producer a story about vince that makes him look good to the producer but the next day the producer realizes his house has been robbed and all fingers point right at dom. No one believes dom except for Vince. In the end result Ari and Eric use a tape to scare Dom with telling him its the secruty footage from the other night. Dom doesn't admit it but Vince knows he did it because of his poker face. Vince is angry and they all gives Dom some money and tells him to get lost.

    A great way to end the storyline with Dom, though I felt that the writers could've gone a lil bigger with DOM's character, you know stealing a stupid doll, thats weak, they could've had him do something ten times worse.

    all in all the episode was good, one thumb upmoreless
