Extortion, Sex and sticking it to Hillary Duff (or others untalented)
13 March 2007 | by (Sandgate) – See all my reviews

If you have never seen Dirt before this episode will either make you a fan or turn you away never to watch again. If you couldn't guess it the theme of this episode was Sex and it lives up to its title.

As always Ian Hart and Courtney Cox are perfectly fitted for their roles and complimented by their supporting cast and strong irreverent/humorous/trying writing. The episodes follow an interesting linear storyline that serendipitously wanders through the seedy Hollyweird and takes on all the cosmetic bullsh#t of fame and celebrity. There is no show like this with the reckless abandon of Norman Mailer so well put together.

The episode centers around the open sex-life of editor Brent Barrow and reporter Willa McPherson who take a barfly home for some fun. It turns out the girl is underage 'actress' modeled after one of Duff sisters (or Simpsons as I have been told) and has a psychotic father who blackmails the magazine for three covers. Also, Ian Hart is assigned to follow-up on the story of a retired porn-star, he does his research and watches her films in a series of bizarre and humorous scenes with his girlfriend, a cake and penis pumps. The psychotic father fails to force Lucy Spiller (Courtney Cox) to give them three covers, they uncovered his graft, and find a way to further debase the braindead pop-star/actresse's inability to understand that a beefsteak tomato is not meat.

The Sexxx Issue was heavy with sex, obviously, and if you expected something lighter than Hardcore, Auto-Focus and Slap Shot please avoid Dirt at all costs. It is not for everyone, but if you can stomach it it is a terrific show that embarrasses its competition.
