Strange Exercise Ritual
17 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

If you can get by the salt, mustard, pepper recital from Stephen Lewis during the make-believe jumprope bit, this episode has its moments.

Lewis lets his hair down a bit as Blakey, actually calls Stan 'mate' toward the beginning. I think they even sat at the table in the canteen together.

Love Stan's little bit of fluff's dance bit as well. She was so energetic wasn't she? Lingering bit of go-go dancing there, it seems.

Mum was worried about her boy Stan's health, but in the end, there was no problem. Turns out the article was slightly mistaken about busdrivers health, as we learned at the end of the episode.

When twelve episodes were put on VHS for American viewing, this was the last episode in the second set I obtained.
