He is also pretty forceful with it. Sort of hints at a multiple personality.

I put it in spoiler quotes just in case it is a reveal for something later though I doubt it.

Those were some great moments of blinding egocentricity with Gavin. He had technology and a top engineering team that was basically guaranteed to bring perpetual esteem to his company, but no, his mind remains dead set on surmounting Pied Piper.

The neighbor was hilarious. While ultimately a jerk, I liked his manner of conversation. Him asking why Richard and Erlich were wearing the Kimonos sealed it.

As for Jared, I'll just tell myself that he was channeling an ancestor's plot to kill Hitler.

See the article I linked in post 179 above for the poop, err, scoop on the monkey.

If you haven't, go back and read some of the stuff from the Should We Let Blaine Die board. Priceless stuff!

The Blaine SWOT analysis was gold and quite intricate as expected from this show. Season 2 continues to be even more impressive than the first.

The Homicide CEO made me think of him as a younger Rob Corddry, both in look and voice.

I enjoyed the SWOT board a lot, particularly the Satan references and "Blaine's funeral televised preempts Star Trek TNG marathon" - but that one should really be a strength now.

Also enjoyed Erlich having the last laugh literally. Not even he is that mean.

I think "non consensual santa" was my favorite. That entire porn tech conference reminded me of something from the internet in the 90's. NSFW diagram: http://204.236.219.131/r/B8L3.png

There were lots of good little moments this week. Adding an iPhone sig because the phone was too far away is the kind of laziness tech shortcut I have definitiely seen in real life and "crimes against children" really are so easy to get away with.

I enjoyed the Billionaire Car Doors and the "digg" at Kevin Rose too because I can remember when he started Digg and when he was on the cover of Business Week.

Russ could be a good character to satirize some of the big egos in real life startup and tech companies.

That was good. Events remain quite unpredictable in resolution.

I suppose Richard and his team should have polished off that tequila with Russ after all.

This was the best episode of the season so far. I've enjoyed the last few however.

I liked the irony in the fact that the "tres commas" may have kept Russ from getting back into the 3 commas club.

And that showing off an "up and down door" car he deems fit only for billionaires essentially prevented him from keeping an "up and down door" car under those terms.

I'll enjoy it if Russ is shown to get back into the three comma club because of the tequila.

Recall that Sammy Hagar made $91 million selling off his Cabo Wabo brand of tequila.
