So spoilers…and I think the review is a bit NSFW.

Last week on Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, we met Johnny Rock’s (Denis Leary) mommy, and boy can she give “Mommy Dearest” a run for her money. The band goes back to the 70s for his mom’s wedding – cue Gigi and Ava (Liz Gillies and Elaine Hendricks) in authentic garb, breathlessly singing 70s disco. Mom (guest star Kelly Bishop) never got over getting tossed for the role of Mary Poppins in favor of “Supercalifragilisticjuliefriggingandrews.” She is all about herself, but the episode did highlight how awesome Johnny’s dad is at saxophone, at caring about his kid, and providing insight. Rehab and Bam Bam (John Ales and Robert Kelly) end the show with a wtf? moment: Rehab brings back a 170-year old woman while on Quaaludes (he’s a method musician), and Bam Bam gives a hand job to a guy for delicious ribs.

SDRR Supercalifragilisticjulie-friggin-andrews

Last week on Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, we were treated to the best episode of the season thus far, with Gigi’s (Liz Gillies) mom Cat (Callie Thorne) showing up, and tattoos on everyone’s brains. We learned some new words (my fave is tit-motized), and saw Flash (John Corbett) and Gigi’s budding relationship tested. I have to admit. I was kinda hoping that Cat and Flash would get together, and that Gigi would be fine with it, but that’s not how it ended up. The tattooing was the committment symbol, and a lesson on fathers and daughters. Johnny (Denis Leary) got tattoos to prove his committment to both Ava (Elaine Hendrix) and Gigi. And it’s okay that she isn’t ready, because she’s the daughter.

Last week on Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, Gigi (Liz Gillies) makes the whole band go to therapy. And yes… it is exactly what you might think with Griffin Dunne playing the therapist. He is the anti-Johnny (Denis Leary). He is an incense-burning, shamanistic, meditating, hippie doctor. The band responded with varying levels of hilarity. Gigi tries to work out her daddy issues. Rehab (John Ales) wants some good drugs. Flash (John Corbett) is obsessed with aging. Ava (Elaine Hendricks) rollerskates in booty shorts. Bam Bam (Robert Kelly) writes Drumsong. Johnny is skeptical, but his skepticism feels redeemed when they are dubbed, “The Most F***d Up Band In The History Of Rock-n-Roll.”

Last week on Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, the gang found out that The Heathens were still big in Belgium, as a result of faking Johnny Rock’s (Denis Leary) death. This stirs up mixed feelings for a few of them:

Johnny: Torn between wanting success for himself and Gigi (Liz Gillies).

Gigi: Torn between Flash (John Corbett) pushing to kick Johnny out when he inevitable f***s up, and being there for her dad.

Flash: Torn between never wanting to play with Johnny again and loads of cash (ok – that dilemma does not last long).

The rest? The dilemma is choosing their riders.

Johnny totally chokes after sounding amazing, but Gigi steps in and steps up. As we all knew she would, she does not throw her dad out. Their burgeoning relationship is the heart of the show.

Last week on Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, those crazy kids decided to create a Johnny Rock (Denis Leary) death hoax, in order to get buzz about the new band, with Gigi (Liz Gillies) as the frontwoman. There’s a lot of fun imagining the death method.

Ira (Josh Pais): “What if somebody shot you?”

Gigi’s debut is a success! There’s a cool father-daughter musical moment that definitely pulls at the heartstrings. Joan Jett has a cameo, and she looks lovely and badass at the same time, as usual.
