I loved how Monica made it clear she had to leave the room, and her solution to the problem was physically standing outside but still being part of the conversation.

I think for people like her, those sort of fig leafs make a big difference.

Chris Diamantopoulos uses the word 'gently caress' so well :allears:

Also, "Your jobs are not at risk!" with the big thumbs-up probably got the biggest laugh from me; my job is ending in a week due to the company closing and it made me laugh thinking of all the 'closed door' meetings we all saw happening while being assured everything was fine.

Aside from providing filthy content on demand, the business side of porn has to be run super well, because there are so many laws and regulations they are subject to and they have to play nice with the CC companies because porn websites can only accept money so long as VISA/MC/AMEX allow them to.

Darkpriest ran a few A/T's about working in the porn business and he said the HR/business side is straight up suits and ties, everything filed in the right place, records kept forever and easy to find, etc. As an "undesirable" business that faces constant scrutiny from local municipalities they can get shut down if someone shows up for an inspection and finds even the slightest irregularity. The myth of seedy sets, coked up performers, and shady production crews is a thing of the distant past. DP mentioned one actress who showed up high as poo poo to perform so he sent her home. Next day, same problem so he fired her and she was subsequently blackballed from the mid/top tier production companies.

After watching the last episode of Silicon Valley, I continued going through my first rewatch of Oz since its first airing, and noticed that Matt Ross (Gavin) was a CO in the last episode of the first season. I've seen him in other movies and whatnot, but it was weird to go from seeing him as an arrogant billionaire to a newly hired corrections officer within the course of an hour.

Butterfly being played in SV was a hilarious coincidence. GF and I were watching GoT before that episode and Ramsey said "Come my lady", and we both started singing the song. Big time laughs when it played on SV a half hour later.

Dinesh is the most reprehensible character on the show! dude joked about how easy it was to take advantage of children while misrepresenting himself to a woman so he could get in her pants. mind you, the week before this, he was hoping a dude would die so he'd be able to possibly hook up with the mother of that man's children. just before that, he was hoping his cousin's kickstarter would fail and that his dreams would crash and burn so he could save some money.

his pain is hilarious.

It's easy to feel bad for Dinesh because he pouts around when he's foiled. Then you rewatch and notice all the times Gilfoyle calls him out. Whenever he's faced with a moral quandary, he does a little Catholic-guilt dance where he emotes feeling bad about something before doubling down on his plan.

I noticed this episode that when Erlich called out Russ on not paying for the benefit tickets, Russ actually seemed to be phased by the comment before pretending to no-sell it. In the past he would just no-sell whatever Erlich said.

I'm happy Russ is showing vulnerability and not just walking all over everyone.
