)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!

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."
