The dog dilemma
30 July 2010 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

The final episode of Season 1.

Larry's Labrador has produced a litter of puppies, which he finds hard to look after. He asks Robin to take one to the landlord of 'The Mucky Duck' ( Michael Segal ), but he already has one, meaning Robin is now stuck with the animal. Mr.Roper has a strict rule about 'No Pets', so Robin and the girls have to keep the dog's presence in the flat secret whilst working out what to do with it...

A funny episode, and a good one to round off the first season. Mildred's interest in the puppy she finds in the hall would be developed further in the spin-off 'George & Mildred', when she acquired a dog named 'Truffles'. Nice exchange between the Ropers in their kitchen about the television licence. Roper has not bought one, and his excuse is he thought payment was included in the water rates. His wife reminds him he has not paid that either.

Funniest moment - through a mix-up, Roper has been given dog food for his dinner. Robin barges into the kitchen, and throws it in the bin ( unaware Roper has switched dinners with his wife ), before marching out. The bandage round Robin's finger unravels as he does this, something I suspect was not supposed to happen.
