Brighton Beach memoirs
jotix10022 December 2009
Warning: Spoilers
Jonathan is contacted by a Russian ex-con that wants to find Irina, the love of his life. He is afraid to go to the Brighton Beach area, for obvious reasons. This lady is a singer at a local club favored by Russians. He decides to include Ray and Lea when he goes to dinner. The mysterious chanteuse makes an impression on Jonathan, the only thing is she is going by a different name now.

When Jonathan meets Suzanne, he asks her to accompany him back to the Brighton Beach club. She is appalled when the waiter arrives with an over sized vodka bottle. They all have a toast, but Suzanne thinks Jonathan is going back to his heavy drinking. Jonathan gets to meet the mysterious Irina, who has a surprise of her own for the amateur detective as well as her former boyfriend.

George's magazine is losing a lot of readers. Jonathan offers his advice as to what to do to attract more women. George consults his analyst who wants him to try to get more in touch with his feminine side. For that, he contacts a black male escort who turns out to be on the same wave length as George. The topic of their conversation turned to be the affair between Lawrence Olivier and Danny Kaye. Both George and the escort love "The Inspector General". As Jonathan comes to visit, he sits with the two men to watch the film.

Another good episode on this surprising new series. Paul Feig directed this installment. Donick Cary wrote the screenplay. Good all around fun is what comes out in this chapter, helped by the deadpan approach of its star, Jason Schwartzman, as well as by the other two regulars, Ted Danson and Zach Galifianakis. Ted Danson is hilarious as the man exploring his bisexuality. Romany Malso appears as the escort.
