Storyline

Rick's insomnia is not helped by the noisy paper boy Wayne who arrives just as he is trying to drop off and a visit to the sarcastic female newsagent is to no avail. When the toaster breaks down Rick lies to the electrical shop man about when he bought it,resulting in more sarcasm and the need to buy a new toaster. Unfortunately Rick has been 'borrowing' spoons from Michael's cafe and Michael wrongly believes that the toaster is a gift to atone for Rick's taking the spoons. And so an unsatisfactory day is followed by another sleepless night. Written by don @ minifie-1

Wayne
26 August 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a strong episode from the first series of this very dry comedy, that stars the very dry Jack Dee.

I love how Rick constantly sees the worst in situations (this probably says a lot about me) and how these embarrassing situations slowly escalate to the maximum point of frustration.

The supporting cast get bits and pieces to do, but it would be nice to see a bit more of them as the show develops.
