Like the Beep Beep Beep of the Tom Tom (#5.17)
14 February 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Blanche is getting some issues, the doctor wants to monitor her heart and she gets a pace maker installed. She gets all the support from her friends but she is also worried about it and decides to give up on sex. When she breaks up with her boyfriend he tries to make her reasonable and goes for the last kiss. And then she realizes that there isn't much different.

Another good approach to a health issue of the age. According to the character many people over 50 have them. But they really touch a good point that when one has to start doing it it gets especially scary.

And the funny part was Rose's "Lullaby", which is the WW1 song "over there".
