Storyline

Artie Bucco is having trouble with his restaurant. His sales are down 40% from the previous year and many of his regular customers have found a new Italian restaurant that is more to their liking. Thinks get worse when investigators from Amex arrive to tell him that credit card numbers are being stolen from the restaurant. When he learns that it's one of Christopher's crew who is involved, it leads to a fight and requires Tony's intervention. Tony blames the whole situation on Christopher who is off to Los Angeles with Carmine Lupertazzi Jr. to see if they can interest Ben Kingsley in starring in their movie. It's pretty apparent that he's not interested but Christopher doesn't get the signals. Christopher is amazed at the swag stars receive and is almost desperate to some of his own. Lauren Bacall proves to be the source, though not in a conventional way. Written by garykmcd

Luxury Lounge
10 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The scene in the actual "Luxury Lounge" is dizzying, poor Christopher, you feel his sense of longing and feel less sympathy towards Lauren then is due. Michael Imperioli is just priceless as an actor. Seeing him fall off the wagon was like watching a friend.

Sir Ben was great as himself and set this tone then emanates. We also celebrated that Artie finally stood up for himself, alas it was short lived and he shriveled back to his place in the kitchen. Both Artie and Christopher's stories are complex and you can't help to route for them, from episode to episode.

"They just give you all this stuff for free?" -Christopher
