Storyline

Ever wonder how "real" the attention-getting antics of today's celebrities are? "Rex" explores the world of Hollywood's purposefully planned and manufactured controversies through the eyes of actor Simon Rex, as he persistently and desperately attempts to revive his flailing career. When Simon was hired as a VJ on MTV, he was on his way... so he thought. But he was a small fish in a small pond. That's when he was introduced to a secret world of very specialized public relations professionals called "Controversy Consultants." Their job: to conceive, plan and execute scandals that would catapult a client into the public eye...at least for a while. Written by Tracy Smith

I must say that I am a little bias towards liking the show, as I'm a pretty avid Simon Rex, aka Dirt Nasty, fan.

But all biases aside, this really is a good idea, and I think that this show could go very far and become VERY popular.

Simon Rex is a very funny person, just listen to his music or watch him and Andy Milonakis on Youtube. He's also not the best actor. Not a bad actor, but nothing special either. However, in a show where he basically has to act as himself, I think his strengths and weaknesses combine to create a very funny on screen persona, one that isn't too far from the truth. The show itself is great. It's a lot like Curb Your Enthusiasm, but it's geared towards a much younger crowd and seems to play more relevance in today's media. What I believe will be everybody's favorite part are the wonderful cameo performances from Paris Hilton, Lance Bass, and Jamie Lee Presley really drive the show, and from what I've heard, there's a good amount of other celebrities lined up to do the show.

My only beef on the show has to do with the production. The camera shots are good, so is the acting, but the music and the slides that say what's happening in words, is a little cheesy. It's like a really high quality Youtube video, but it needs some tweaking before it gets on TV.

Regardless, watch it. Remember that it's only a PILOT that was aired over the INTERNET. So don't expect any Emmy performances. But I guarantee that if you sit back and relax, you'll enjoy it.

I give this, at this stage, a 7/10.

However, I could see this idea getting even better.
