)Holliston Episode 1 Review- The Hooker

 

In the first episode of Holliston Adam finds out his ex girlfriend Corri is back in town and he thinks it his chance to win her back. Well, he finds out she has a boyfriend who is a doctor, while he and his best friend Joe are struggling cable access commercial makers making crap money while trying to raise enough money to shoot their feature movie Shin Pads.

 

Adam is determined to make Corri think hes happy, even after dumping his girlfriend as soon as he finds out Corri's back in town, he still tells Corri that he has a girlfriend who does charity work with kids with "bad" cancer. But to Adam's dismay Corri wants to meet her and Joe volunteers them to double date.

 

So Adam is now determined to find a date to pose as his girlfriend. Not knowing what to do he talks to his imaginary friend Oderus (played by Oderus Urungus of Gwar) who tells him to hire a hooker.  And desperate enough Adam agrees. Then date night comes and Adam shows up with a hooker posing as Deeanna (the real Deeanna he dumped when he found out she hadn’t seen gremlins, and found out Corri was in town by telling her he was dying) who is one of the most strung out looking hookers I’ve ever seen. Well not that I’ve seen a lot of hookers but HEEEEYYYY!

 

As the date goes on Corri notices things aren't as they seem. (You'll have to see the episode to see what I mean.) Her boyfriend is on call and gets paged shortly after they start the date and Corri wants to treat Adam and his hooker to a movie. 2 more hours to pay for the hooker. Adam then panics and wants the night to just end.  He calls Joe to bail him out and Joe's cover story is that the cat is wicked depressed ROFLMAO. Then Adam finally has the balls to tell Corri why hes acting the way he is and pulls Corri outside to finally tell her what hes been wanting to tell her for years. It is a heart felt scene that tugs at your emotions in a tv show that also has exploding heads and peeling faces and grossness.

 

Meanwhile Joe is still inside the resturaunt drinking coffee by the pot procrastinating like a mofo so he doesn’t get stuck paying Adams bill (Joe is always asking his girlfriend for money and is poor as anything) and his face is hilarious and he gets wicked jitters.  Brilliantly acted by Joe Lynch. Hilarious.

 

This show is so well written and acted. If you haven't seen Holliston yet you are missing out!

 

Stay Tuned for a review on Episode 2- Camera Rental coming soon.

 

Favorite lines from Episode 1:

"You can reuse a condom if its with the same girl. Only 3 times though. 4 times would be gross."

"I can't date a girl if she's never seen gremlins."

"Tits are good. Balls are bad."

Klowns what is your hard on for Adam Green?  He is a "nobody like Eli Roth"?  Um, last time I checked both of those guys are sort of legends and they're only in their 30's.  Adam Green is a nobody?  A nobody with his own TV series (no horror director has ever accomplished that), a worldwide slasher franchise (very few have accomplished that), and 7 great films under his belt.  Eli Roth is equally as popular and rich and famous as Green even though he's done less.  As a matter of fact, I can't think of two guys their age who have accomplished more or who could be bigger names in horror so young.  What exactly have you accomplished beside message board trolling and hating on people more successful than you?

To the OP- I loved your review and agree with it!  Laughed so hard and can't wait for a new episode tonight!!  How did you already see tonight's episode though?

lol jk. I saw it when Adam, Joe, Laura and Corri did their sneak peak screening in Holliston, MA. They let us see episode 1 and episode 3 before the show even aired, then did a Q & A and then we went to the actual Casey's Crossing and hung out and had some beers. It was fun and Adam, Joe, Corri and Laura are awesome people.

well due to personal oppinion and the right to express those oppinions klownz has every right to say what he said, having said that he could have worded it differently make the point that i think was trying to be made.

my thought- i kinda agree with klownz just because hes accoplished all that dosent mean that he is "somebody" when it comes to personal views. and his shit is medioker. -(personal oppinion)

 and please forgive my spelling i am f#@%ing exhausted.

So "mediocre" that Hatchet has become a franchise, Frozen was a huge hit and one of the best reviewed genre movies of last year, and Holliston got a second season after airing just two episodes.  Yeah, I'd call that mediocre!  Opinions are opinions, but I get so frustrated when i come on boards like this to be a fan and the same people just constantly post trash talk and argue.  Make your point and movie on is all I'm saying, and even more so, be able to back it up.  If YOU dont like something- great.  But making statements that you don't have the facts to back up just causes fans like me to get angry and that's the only reason people do it is to get a reaction.  I post on boards quite frequently (and have for years) but if I don't like something I just don't talk about it.  No need to go argue with the people who like it.  And given Green's success, clearly more people love him than don't.  Holliston is easly my new favorite show!!!  So happy that they got a second season and that it is a hit!!
