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.

SDRR 1.4 “What You Like Is In The Limo” review: The Heathens are big in Belgium! The death hoax caused a resurrection of Johnny Rock mania, and the band (with a very reluctant Flash – John Corbett) is getting paid buckets of cash to do a show – that sells out in 7 hours!

I learned a bit (or they did a really good job of convincing me of this aspect of rock concerts). The band had to choose what they wanted for their “rider,” that is, the backstage requests. Rehab (ironic name – John Ales) wanted non-FDA approved drugs. Ava (Elaine Hendricks) wanted a masseuse that looked like Johnny Depp. And 27 peaches? Gigi is not pleased. She wants it to be about the music.

There’s a bit about family vs fame. First, Johnny feels torn between wanting the fame for himself and wanting it for Gigi. Ava is adorable, especially when she blurts out what she thinks. Flash wants Gigi to give up on Johnny because he’s convinced he will screw it all up.

Johnny gets up on that stage and starts the song, “Die Tryin,” like a rock god. Then Bam Bam (Robert Kelly) starts an impromptu drum solo at the exact same time Johnny starts hallucinating (courtesy of blue weed, Rehab’s pill, an owl, and a snake – yeah… figure that out). He runs off the stage and Gigi saves the day.

So… does Gigi go through with kicking him out?

Watch to find out!

I do think this show would do well with an hour format. I am left wanting more, when it ends. That’s probably by design. I love the music too.

Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll airs Thursday nights at 10pm ET on FX.
