What a delightful introductory episode! A talented actor who keeps missing out on the Breakthrough Part, and his nearly pathetic, self-destructive sister, in need of only 8 simple days to access their parent's trust fund. Seems so easy--except Dear Mum has just kicked off, eight days before the trust's seventh anniversary, and so, eight days before the trust us legally in their hands. Oh me, oh my, what's a debtor to do?
I found this story uproarious, and I'm eager to see how Peter and Kate deal with "keeping Mum alive," at least officially.
A very in-depth character study and sociological microcosm analysis in a fast-paced and scary episode. After four ugly prison years Tony 's going straight--and better than just straight, he's got big plans to help his Gypsy community: literacy, education, learning trade skills. But crime boss Stivie thinks not: he 'll put Tony to work in a new scam, and that way Tony can pay off his missing brother's debt to the crime czar
