Episode 5: Rachel

Summary

Lee gets jealous when Lucy talks about her first love, so Daisy helps him turn the tables by setting him up with her gorgeous friend. However, he is surprised when things start moving very quickly between them. Comedy, guest starring Joanna Bobin (Secret Diary of a Call Girl), with Lee Mack, Sally Bretton and Katy Wix

Review

The unashamed old-fashionedness of Not Going Out can be a virtue. This week, for instance, Lee finds himself clashing with a snooty waiter in a posh restaurant. Cue various simple-but-effective puns such as, Waiter: “Entrées?” Lee: “It’s up to you how you carry them.”

Lee also does a trying-the-wine routine that is pure Eric Morecambe. The trouble is the storyline propping up the comedy feels particularly tired and cartoony: Lee goes out on an unlikely date in the hope of making Lucy (the true object of his affections) jealous, but the woman he chooses turns out to be a relationship weirdo out of 1980s cliché. Luckily, Katy Wix keeps turning up in superhero costumes to lighten the load.
