Storyline

Labia stays the night with Matt and appals Diane when she answers his phone. Eyebrows are raised when he takes her to the studio but Merc is more concerned with ideas for new shows - such as sea monsters and succubi - as 'Pucks' is flagging. In fact Elliot Salad,the network head,takes Carol out for a drink and tells her that Merc will be dropped from the network after receiving his Man of the Year award and that she is top of the list to replace him. Beverly has another date with Rob,which is much more successful than the first,and they end up kissing. Written by don @ minifie-1

Episode Eight

Again the pace is really good and the screenplay is gripping along with the plot written so smartly giving enough room for the actors and characters and even the plot to not only settle but blend in.
