DIRT - The Complete First Season
By Amy Steele
This is Hollywood. Someone is getting screwed and somebody out there cannot wait to tell you about it.
While promising in concept-behind the scenes at a gossip rag and Courtney Cox in lead role as editor Lucy Spiller [wow, what a clever name. note: sarcasm]. Cox plays the role as a combination of her Scream reporter and Monica Gellar.
At a meeting early on, Spiller suggests the merger for Dirt and Now magazines [I'm imagining a Star magazine and an US or People] she explains it is an upscale glossy tabloid that combines the sophistication of Now with the tabloid glory of Dirt.
Sure this series has all you'd expect: the closeted action star [Melrose Place's Grant Show], a struggling actor whose career picks up when he snitches on tv-star girlfriend, the schizo photog/BFF, an ingénue reporter, a sage and jaded crime reporter [Paul Reubens] and the gay brother. What more could this series need? Maybe some good plots that the viewers actually care a bit about. Also, decide whether to be vampy or more "serious." This is FX. Viewers are used to over-the-top and a masturbating Courtney Cox is not edgy. Really. We've watched Nip/Tuck and that tongue-in-cheek series works.
Save your time.
