Storyline

While Hank gives a talk about his work, an angry Todd Carr (the director of the film based on Hanks book) comes in. The two start a fight and Hank ends up in jail to be bailed out by Bill. Hank meets Meredith again and this time behaves more polite and even tries to help her get back a dog she greatly misses. In the meantime, Charlie, Hanks boss, learns something very interesting about his assistant Dani. Written by Marco van Hoof <k_luifje7@hotmail.com>

"Hey there, Cat Stevens..."

Despite the title, The Whore of Babylon is actually less sexually explicit than the previous two episodes. Nonetheless, it remains relentlessly funny and oddly titillating.

The full-on verbal filth shows up as early as in the very first scene, when Hank attends a book-signing and gets in a fight with Todd Carr (Chris Williams), the douche-bag filmmaker who turned his nihilistic bestseller into a god-awful rom-com. As a result Hank is sent to jail and subsequently bailed out by Bill, who owns the on-line magazine the struggling writer is working for. Additionally, Hank runs into Meredith (Amy Price-Francis), a woman he rejected in the pilot, and treats her a little better, with quite pleasant results, while Charlie discovers something a bit shocking about his secretary Dani (Rachel Miner).

As usual, Duchovny gets all the best lines and exploits his roguish charm to the max, but this time Handler comes pretty close to stealing the show, moving from mere supporting actor to bona fide co-star, reclaiming the rude energy he displayed in Sex and the City. To quote the famous HBO comedy, fabulous.
