The next phase of the PC project is design. Believing it could be aesthetically beautiful and not just another beige box, Joe is able to call in an old friend, top industrial designer Simon Church, to come up with a concept. Simon's arrival onto the scene has the possibility to alienate both Gordon and Cameron, but for different reasons. Gordon is feeling tired of people not listening to him, and acts upon his new-found albeit temporary freedom with the girls while Donna is out of town on business. Donna, on the other hand, may also act upon her new temporary freedoms based on a business meeting and a telephone call home to Gordon. And while he has been issued a divorce petition, an action which no one in the company knows about, John gets more bad news: the PC project is out of money, and without a quick cash influx, the entire company could shut down within a week if the PC project proceeds.

The Giant episode reveals much in character development. The viewer learns more about Joe's past which troubles Cameron! Boz is the tough, Texan who is literally willing to bet the ranch on the P C project. Gordon snaps from the pressure, and there is asocial message about how one's ethics effects others. Giant is an episode which displays the frailties of the characters. One has to watch closely to notice the minor details. The viewer is asked how will the characters with their flaws survive at Cardiff electronics. Cardiff is about to go broke, and has no money to survive before the big sales convention. Well written, directed and acted episode. Seven out of ten.
