Another great episode from the fifth series
13 April 2007 | by (Lancaster, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

"Huntin,' Shootin,' And Fishin'" is another great episode from the fifth series. Edina is now "by royal appointment" with Prince Charles' line of biscuits, but she wants Emma Bunton to re-do the ad. Bubble claims the biscuits taste like an old piece of carpet, and then gives her philosophy on the Royal Family. Edina announces she's won a country house weekend by grossly overbidding at an auction. Some of the activities will include hunting, shooting guns, and fishing. Saffy has a problem with Edina going on a trip just so she can hunt birds and animals, but Edina tries to use her style of reasoning to justify the killing. Emma Bunton arrives but she isn't keen on re-doing the biscuit ad. She also visits with Saffy, and learns Edina wants to throw a baby shower. Edina and Patsy later arrive at the country manor for their getaway weekend. Mossie Smith ("The End") returns to the show as the country house's director, Flossie. Flossie will make sure you check in properly, carry your bags, and even clean the doggy do off your shoe. Back at home, Saffy's first guest for her gathering is Sarah, who thinks it's freaky that Saffy has a baby inside her. Emma soon arrives, but Sarah doesn't seem to recognize her from school. Sarah goes on fanatically about Saffy's pregnancy. She wonders if Saffy's stomach organs have been moved about as the baby is growing, and she worries the baby may be nibbling on things! She continues with her morbid fascination until Emma gets up and slaps her. The slap seems to spark Sarah's memory, and Sarah becomes starstruck over being in the company of Emma Bunton. Edina and Patsy next meet the gamekeeper of the country manor. The gamekeeper, Clarissa (television cook and food expert, Clarissa Dickson-Wright), informs Edina and Patsy that there is no pool, jacuzzi, or relaxing massage available at the country house. They're also informed that there's nothing in season as far as hunting goes. Shooting clay pigeons and playing golf are offered, but the ladies decide they'll do some horseback riding instead. Back in Holland Park, Emma announces she must leave, and Sarah follows closely behind. Sarah told Saffy she's going to follow Emma everywhere, and get Emma's phone number. The horseback riding doesn't go well for Edina and Patsy. In fact, Patsy says she might need to be scraped off the saddle! They resort to shooting clay pigeons. Patsy is an expert marksman, but Edina's shooting skills are lacking and she ends up shooting a real pigeon by accident. Edina becomes very agitated during the course of the evening, so Patsy grabs a couple rifles. They go outside into the darkness, and begin shooting in the dark. Edina brings back her first blood: A pheasant, which she stashes in a closet. They're later disturbed from their sleep by strange noises coming from the closet. Edina works up the courage to investigate, and turns around to see the pheasant has roosted on top of Patsy's head! The pheasant runs off to hide in the bathroom, and Patsy suggests Edina go pull the pheasant's neck. Edina finds she doesn't have the heart to kill the pheasant with her bare hands, so they decide to tranquilize the pheasant and take it to Hyde Park. The weekend has ended, and Edina and Patsy return to London. The police come to the house to discuss some business. Edina assumes they're there to question her about the pheasant's abduction, so she takes a stand and tells them the pheasant is alive and well. Edina finds out the police aren't there for her, and they've come for the visiting Sarah. Sarah was stalking Emma Bunton, and she needs to go with them concerning a restraining order. This gives Edina and Patsy a good laugh! Mrs. M. is absent from this episode.
