Storyline

Romantic meetings are in the air as Henry goes on a blind date with eccentric, adoring Rupert, Cleo dines with married old flame Brian, Lance meets Peter, who shares his desire for Daniel and Freddie hooks up with Anna, sister of a former boyfriend. However when it gets to full sex not everybody makes first base. Freddie actually gets it together with a girl, Cleo and Brian have a heart to heart and part friends but Henry's sexual timidity sees off Rupert - though he does meet somebody else in Leigh. Lance finally gets what he wants but Dean goes through a bizarre role play in which he is kidnapped and treated as a sex slave. Written by don @ minifie-1

A vast improvement
7 June 2015 | by ciffouSee all my reviews

By this episode I already know the show is shallow and that Henry is a very unlikeable and selfish man. That's why it pleasantly surprised to get to this point of the show where we finally see where he's standing and we actually get to see his fragility, not only his, but also other important characters'. It's a nice surprise to actually see them exposing a different kind of reality and something that adds some depth to these people we're expected to care about. Since the previous episode they actually manage to make Freddie more likable. What they presented at first was a one dimensional cold and unattainable hot guy. Dean however remains as a funny resource and nothing more. I don't know if they should focus so much screen time on him. We'll see how the other half of the show turns out.
