Storyline

The printers have wrongly spelled Rick's name as Bick on his letter-heads so that when Magda brings her sister to stay Rick pays her to alter the mistake with typing fluid but she runs out and has to improvise. Mel's office is being redecorated so she works from home with her secretary Izzy,who has quite an effect on Marty though Magda dislikes her. Rick overhears Mel trying to pitch one of her clients to appear on a game show and rings up the producer to sabotage the man's chances. What he has failed to realise is that Mel was actually trying to put Rick forward for the show so once again he has shot himself in the foot. Nor do Sam and Ben's attempts to cook food to sell at a rock festival go down well with Clive from next door. Written by don @ minifie-1

Bick Spleen
26 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

The Christmas special aside this is the last normal episode of the third series of 'Lead Balloon'.

And what a good episode it is, with Rick really shooting himself in the foot when he overhears a conversation and also under estimates Mel.

It's nice that all the supporting characters get lots to do, with Sean Power's Marty continuing to be a highlight for me.

It's been a good third series overall.
