On the pull

I always wondered what the women in Last of the Summer Wine saw in their men. Wally Batty seems to care more of his pigeons and at least Nora begrudgingly likes the attention from Compo deep down. The same with Ivy and Sid, with Ivy appearing to be even more man hating and Sid with an eye for the dolly birds. It looks like whatever spark they all had extinguished years ago.

Here we see Ivy reading a romantic novel and dreaming of being swept off her feet by a dark rugged, handsome man and all she has to look forward to is Sid from a greasy café. Even stranger, they actually talk about sex while sunbathing it must have been the only time we see both of them speaking in such an intimate manner.

We are still in Scarborough; Foggy goes swimming in the freezing sea and gets hypothermia. Compo wants to being his nephew Gordon out of his shell. He is more interested in fishing and wants to avoid them.

Compo scrubs himself up and smartens up and pulls four women in a bar. one each for for the trio plus Gordon. We never see the women but hear them cackling outside the guest house. The others are not interested. Gordon meanwhile finds a nice girl visiting from their home town and seems to have struck up a rapport.

The episode is memorable for the little intimate moments and Compo the one being the man about town, pulling at the disco. It is surprisingly how often he smartened up in the early days, he was not always scruffy.
