Episodes 359-364 (continued) One really satisfying thing to have come out of recent episodes was that, for once, there were consequences to all the characters going off and engaging in their soapy dramas when they should have been at work. While Bobby and Steven have sneaked off to rescue Viv and Tamar, Carly is off with Adam location hunting (at night) for a suitable place to shoot Image’s music video, only for the car to get bogged down. Adding insult to injury, Carly has taken the car without asking Tom or Pippa’s permission. Steven comes home alone - sent by Bobby while she carries out the rescue of Tamar, because he’s on a good behaviour bond. Tom and Pippa are a little suspicious, but more so when Ailsa - alone at the diner with neither Bobby nor Carly showing up - rings Pippa asking for help and mentions that Bobby was last seen going off with Steven: At the diner she talks it out further with Ailsa: Neither Adam and Carly getting marooned nor Bobby and Steven rescuing Viv was especially engaging (albeit the latter was at least enjoyably watchable), but the consequences of both happening on the same night are engaging, because it threatens the family values at the heart of the series. Most soap characters get to have their daily dramas and keep businesses running. But not so here. Tom presents Carly with a bill for $150 for the car being towed. And it’s the worst possible time for her. She’s walked out on Bobby only to find that the glamorous job she thought was in the pipeline with Nina has come to nothing. And when she takes her trouble to Pippa, the latter is in arse-kicking mode: I do like kick-arse Pippa. Meanwhile, Celia hasn’t quite left yet. She has to visit her sister first: Suitably shaken up, Celia naturally takes Morag up on her offer: Cornelia and Fiona are always magic together. And this scene is no exception. I already miss Celia, since Morag spent #364 alternating between complaining that Marilyn had missed work for a photoshoot and - at the bottom of the barrel - mediating in an industrial strike held by Sally and a couple of her school friends whom Dodge was using as cheap labour to do Morag’s gardening. And that’s where this dullest episode comes in. #364 opens with a recap of Image showing off their terrible dance routine… …And unbelievably gets worse as it continues. There’s the child labour strike in which Morag and Dodge are completely wasted stuck in the middle of sub-Neighbours B-story pap; Then there's a lengthy montage of an Image photoshoot; Carly talking to Andrew; Carly talking to Adam; Andrew questioning Adam over his relationship with Carly (oh, my poor blood pressure); Carly talking to Adam again and Adam possibly asking her out. None of which I can bring myself to care about. It’s the pits.
