Episode Summary

Mr. Isaak's Opus
From Showtime: Inspired by his surfing pal Doc, a doctor who spends his vacations helping the poor in Latin America, Chris decides he should play a charity gig, not for the usual publicity boost, but for the good of his soul. After Chris rejects several high-profile gigs, Yola tells him about a local Catholic school where Father Ken McCurdy, an old high school friend, is helping to organize a benefit concert to raise money for a new band room. Chris agrees to play the benefit and then brings the band along to meet the kids and play a few tunes. Meanwhile, Yola's friend Vivian is donating her eggs to an infertile couple and the female hormones she's taking are making her weepy. Yola's hormones are likewise in high gear, especially when she discovers that Father Ken, whom she thought was gay, is anything but, and has things on his mind that would make the Virgin Mary blush. Anson's got hormone issues as well, namely that despite his best efforts at debauchery, he apparently hasn't made the cut at the new groupie Website. Determined to save his raunchy reputation and that of his band mates, Anson gets on the Web and starts posting reviews, with disastrous consequences.moreless

      • 1. 
        It's unsure whether this is intentional or not, but for the first (and only) time, we see that no act is listed on the Bimbo's marquee during an outside, nighttime shot of the venue.

        This is also the first time that there wasn't a single scene shot at Chris' house in the entire episode.
