Storyline

After Jen has bought a stylish but crippling pair of shoes Denholm announces that the IT trio must attend an anti-stress course. A machine that measures stress is brought to the office but Roy and Moss replace it with a dummy and plan to show how calm they are by setting off a fire. Jen, injured by her shoes and frightened by the fire, is on the verge of hysteria but stays calm so as not to get the sack. The fire brigade finally arrives and declare that the anti-stress machine is not working. Written by don @ minifie-1

One of the funniest.
20 November 2015 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Jen is dazzled by a pair of shoes, she's desperate to get her hands on them, even though they're two sizes too small. Denholm is declaring war on stress, he calls in an expert stresspert Doctor Julian Holmes.

The Ambulance advert was hilarious. The shoe scene was hilarious. The stress meeting was hilarious. Jen's tirade to the Japanese boss was hilarious.

Too funny for words! They're a magical bunch of individuals with an awesome script, was never going to fail was it? Was always one of my favourite episodes.

9/10
