Storyline

Having split with Helen Angus is now crashing with Dylan whilst Evie is engaged to Mal. Eighteen months earlier the sex-mad Luke persuaded Dylan to make up a foursome so that Luke could bed student Cleo, pairing Dylan with the older Anna. The two women visit for a dinner party but there is a power cut and Anna and Dylan end up in bed together, though she tells him he is too young to be a permanent boyfriend. In the present he rings her with his bad news - unaware that she is at a conference on speaker-phone - and then gets a call from Abigail. Written by don @ minifie-1

Episode 2 - charms subsides, drama increases, humour hits and misses
24 April 2015 | by mccarthy_shaun-81156See all my reviews

Opposites attract and opposites sets the stage for episode 2 of "Scrotal Recall". Simple Luke continues his sexual relationship with masters student Cleo while he deploys juvenile attempts to avoid any intellectual relationship development. This contrasts with young Dylan's desire for older Anna and their relationship's mostly honest approach to two people attracted to each other but age and stage offer significant roadblocks. A disastrous dinner party sets the stage for most of the episode. The comedy is broad but misses as often as it hits. The drama is a tad pedantic and predictable. An overall past/present storyline concerning Luke and Evie demonstrates their troubled emotional baggage for each other. Their angst ridden relationship was introduced in episode 1 and seems set to be the major through line for season one. It's not compelling but it's also not too belaboured.

Writer/creator Tom Edge tackles a different tone versus episode 1. The lead characters lose some of their original charm but add other elements: Angus is slightly more confident but still desperate; Luke is less roguish and more slimy; Chloe loses her innocent girl on the sidelines and is now shown to be smitten and in despair. The show gains in depth but at the cost of overall charm. Scenes are still funny. Supporting characters are less interesting. Perhaps an overall necessary evil to give the show more colours to play with later.
