Rough Sex

OK, the twisted Cassidy/Evan relationship continues on, as Evan, facing eviction from his apartment, takes a parking lot attendant job. Women love to see their men suffer - it's so romantic. It shows so much character, especially when their man is humbled. She's all dressed up and lovely, he's in his goofy parking lot attendant uniform. Cassidy later tells all to her new boyfriend Jason, who is like the PLAYBOY ideal man - he takes her to a swanky jazz club, where he's asked on stage to play piano. Too hip, man, and about twenty years too late. Cassidy looks like she almost ready to forgive Evan and come running into his arms. Cassidy still loves Evan, the lowlife slob that he is...

Cassidy should take lessons from Daddy Nash, the smooth operator with lines like: "The former Number One got traded to France." That's what happens to all the Nash women - they get traded away, like the Vietnamese women who get moved around in this week's main story. Wife Number 1 (Lisa) was written out to France, Wife Number 2 (Kelly) was written out to England. If Caitlin becomes Wife Number 3, she should be banished to Italy. That way when Nash takes a European vacation, he'll have a woman in every country (France, England and Italy) - how's that? Too much to hope for...

We'll ignore the backlash to this episode - the political correctness backlash, that is. There's criminal Frankie Dwyer in a wheelchair facing an unsympathetic Nash (who shot him and put him in a wheelchair), there's porno star Jenna Jameson strutting around showing her stuff, there's Nash (and Caitlin) smoking cigars, and there's Joe being ridden by Spike (and being forced to handcuff her, in a weirdly unpleasant and not-so-funny kind of rough sex way). The corrupt INS agent completes the mishmash of political pot shots all around.

This entire backlash smoke screen masks the harshness of the main story of Asian sex slaves (sneaked in by a corrupt female INS agent, no less) brought into the United States. All this is presented as wild and sexy San Francisco, another day in the life of NASH BRIDGES. This is sexually amok San Francisco, where there are fictional Chinese restaurants with all red décor, with a scantily clad Asian dancer on a table top amidst fine dining. The Cassidy/Evan relationship, sex slaves, porno stars, Spike, women traded away to France - rough and humiliating sex all around.
