Toni English's hit series "Naked Hollywood" pauses for a sub-par edition in this critique of the Left Coast's craze for fitness and surface good looks. For once, the writing, credited to her and Raven Touchstone, fails, with a facile and rather boring approach to such low hanging fruit as subject for satire.
Making matters worse, series regular Dee goes without a sex scene, a defect corrected according to the preview included for #16 in which she gets two sex vignettes. Show has a full 10 minutes of padding added to its 83 minute running time, consisting of a lengthy recap of #14 plus the sneak look at #16.
Radio personality Nina Hartley intones on the obsession with fitness, and we have many scenes set at fitness clubs and gyms. Unfortunately, the hambone Ron Jeremy is present in these scenes trying in vain to pick up women and cracking unfunny jokes, hardly the comic relief English was aiming for. Good news is that he, like Dee, is not accorded a sex scene.
Guest star Kim Chambers impresses in her XXX footage, while tall Christi Lake with an unbecoming dark hairdo is pretty much wasted as the other femme added to the cast. Hardly any plot development occurs.
