Matt's tacky game show 'The Box' is a ratings hit but also a poisoned chalice as it prevents him from returning to the acting work he loves. Beverly and Sean are equally unhappy at having to work with the fatuous, slave-driving Tim whilst Beverly is shocked to find that Carol has shut herself in her house now that she is jobless. Matt finds some diversion by having sex with Danika from 'The Box' but unfortunately Merc Lapidus finds out and takes full advantage of the situation. Written by don @ minifie-1

Did You Know?


In the "previously on the Box" clip, one of the contestants develops hay sneeze from bales of hay. Actually, hay sneeze is an allergic reaction to pollen produced by flowering parts of living grass, whereas hay is a grass dead, dried and sometimes compacted. There should be no pollen in such hay as presented in the clip, unless the pollen was artificially added for the effect.

Some people suffer from dust allergies as well as pollen allergies. Hay, being a dead grass, contains a large amount of dust. It fills the air and irritates the nose. Enough to make anyone who suffers from such an allergy to have a strong reaction being enclosed with it in a confined space. See more »

Frankly unwatchable - really disappointing after the first 4 seasons were so good. The jokes were weak, the writing was poor and it felt like a waste of a really good cast.
