Series 10 - Episode 2 Facts of Life

Review

After the previous episode’s masterclass, the comedy comes down to earth, and promptly dips below the belt. Lee is outraged that his twins have started sex education at primary school. “I should be the one telling them the facts of life,” he huffs, though in practice he’s so embarrassed, he only succeeds in confusing them.

To make matters worse, the children’s teacher keeps calling Lee and Lucy in for a stern chat on account of ideas the twins have been sharing in class. When Lucy delivers the final blow to Lee’s pride, it’s time for a musical montage involving a sex shop and a Kama Sutra pop-up book that feels a little too rooted in cartoon sitcom-world.


Summary

Lee thinks the twins are too young to be taught about sex at school and that their teacher Miss Anstis is too stuck up to teach it. He resolves that it is his duty as a father to teach his children everything he knows about the facts of life, discovering only when it is too late that his knowledge is somewhat limited. Comedy, starring Lee Mack and Sally Bretton.
