Tonight’s episode was actually quite hilarious. It’s good when there’s a bit of light-heartedness (especially when Lou’s involved) to break away from the regular, overly-dramatic storylines.
Lou has pretty much taken over every little aspect of Kyle’s handiman business. After failing to come up with a name on his own (I quite liked Handy-Can), he discovers that Lou has already done the job for him – Dial-A-Kyle. Brilliant. (Jade said that coming up with names is like writing on a birthday card – there’s so much truth in that.) Anyway, Lou’s put flyers up everywhere (and by everywhere, I mean Harold’s Store) with a hilarious caricature of Kyle. Kyle wanted them taken down, only to discover the full-page spread in the newspaper. Gold! Kyle’s angry because he had no say, but fair enough because Lou’s supplying all the money. Lou’s also planned a huge launch (don’t know why) and now Kyle has to make a speech to everybody. One problem – he has a fear of public speaking. Or Glossophobia according To Wikipedia. He literally wasn’t able to say the speech with nobody watching (and he imagined Kate, Lucas and a host of Erinsborough nobodies laughing at him.) Will he be able to do it, or is the business sunk?
Sonya decided yesterday she wanted to buy the community garden (with what money?). Toadie, obviously, said no to begin with, but then desperately tried to see if they could get a loan, so Sonya’s ‘dream’ of about five minutes could be realised. She also rustled up a nice drawing of her vision for the garden complete with nursery and office. Unfortunately, they’re unable to buy it. Boo. But Sonya managed to offload her dilemma onto newly-rich Lucas – ten bucks says that he’s going to buy it for her? Come on, Lucas, hurry it up!
