Historically, the Caught From Behind series is one which has produced some pretty memorable anal scenes and some thankfully forgotten storylines. A few things have changed. The storylines are getting punchier, and there's less of an inclination to catch series star Ron Jeremy from behind with a monkey wrench for bad comedy. The sex pretty much holds its own.
Caught From Behind 19 which features Patrick Garbiras' debut as a director is bolstered by a pretty funny script (Jonathan Morgan) which finds Jeremy getting hounded by the FCC in his attempts to get his pet project "Anal TV" on the air.
A victim of stress, the acerbic Jeremy vents on employee Sahara and plugs her asshole in a choice scene, but the sexual interlude offers little in the way of a calming effect. !n what becomes a takeoff of Scrooged, Jeremy gets visited by the ghost of his partner Harry Sphincter (Marc Wallice). Harry warns Ron that he's doomed unless he changes his ways. It's also a subtle way of getting written out of a series, because as far as I'm aware Wallice hadn't died in the last feature. Other ghosts, Nicole London and Debi Diamond, both of whom seem to possess the punching capability of Rocky Marciano, transport Jeremy across time and place for valuable life's lessons.
A fun scene has Steven St. Croix playing a younger Jeremy bitching about how his Hollywood agent only lands him gigs in cheesy porno movies after which St. Croix plows partner Whitney Banks' ass in the missionary position. Jeremy's patient, Lacy Rose, has back-to-back anal encounters — first with Wallice in the missionary, then a very, very brief encounter with Jay Ashley in which Jay lands in her doggie style.
A Wallice, Diamond, London free-for-all involving strap-ons and Debi getting it up the ass rounds out this "spirited" and playful show. As far as directorial efforts go, Garbiras' style is viewer-friendly and fits right in with the series' flow.
A good job and a must addition if you're stocking this highly popular series.
