THIS WEEK’S RAP SHEET:
Bad-mouthing the new boss — Hollamby is back, despite the advice of “her Bobby.” She blames her strong sense of duty, which I think must be code for “I miss being a petty tyrant.”
I don’t know whose ear she means, exactly (not Nikki’s, unfortunately), but if she had said that two seconds later, Helen would have been whispering in her ear instead. Almost busted! As it is, Helen is strolling up behind them and calling out to Sylvia.
Helen’s pretty good at this management stuff, isn’t she? She makes even the crappy employees feel valuable. I wish I could work under Miss Stewart. For! I totally meant for.
I love it when they use dialogue to tell us what happened between episodes or explain a character’s absence. But mostly I love to watch Helen walk and talk.
And isn’t that a convenient lie for Di, the “nasty fall” thing? Wonder how she got Fenner to agree to keep silent about her mother-beating hobby? No, wait; I don’t want to know.
Smarm and smirks as far as the eye can see!
