Adam is not talking to his mother again since she caught him watching porn, which was bad enough, but what made it worse was that she continued to watch it with him and analyzed why it wasn't realistic from a female's point of view. Cathy realizes what she did with Adam was wrong, but she still wants to make sure that at age fourteen he is not yet having sex, and that when he does that he can both talk to her about anything in that vein and that he treat the girl properly. As she deals with this issue, she is beginning to see physical beauty around her, which includes blue iris flowers, her own body and how best to show it off, and the sexy new muralist at the school named Lenny. Meanwhile, Paul has sustained a rugby injury which has him sidelined, but not in the eyes of "rugby tart", Tina. And the building in which Sean is living is scheduled for demolition.

Sex sells
3 December 2011 | by (British Virgin Islands) – See all my reviews

The producers and the writers must have sat around the table after about the 3rd or 4th episode discussing the mediocre amount of viewers. Everyone present agrees the series is great, funny, fresh and that it deserves better. But there is no time to waste.. either they get more viewers or the series will get ditched. What to do, what to do? Suddenly someone says: "Sex sells" and explains that to draw some real attention there would have to be a lot more sex in it. Not in a clever way, or in a real romantic way, no, just blunt, irrational, casual sex without rhyme or reason. Bring in a new hunk for her to have casual sex with, let Paul find another woman to have sex with, let the boy experiment with sex, let the big girl Andrea experiment with sex, let Cathy's brother hit it on with the old lady across the road... just everyone! Let's see if we can't turn this thing around! If you, like me, wondered what made this episode so crass, stupid, blunt and absolutely not believable, think about the motivations of a TV show producer and then it all makes sense again.
