|Episode No.||No. Overall||Title||Airdate||Runtime||Summary|
|1||1||The Job List||2007-02-22||30||
Ad man Martin Chadwick comes unstuck when his job is downsized, forcing him to work from home and be answerable to his former assistant. He hates his new life and misses the stress of work. All his angst and frustration comes out in one day when his working wife, Julie gives him a list of domestic chores to do.
|2||2||Sex and Friends||2007-03-01||30||
Martin and Julie's best friends, Duncan and Sarah, have marital problems brought on by Sarah's habit of sleeping with his friends. Evicted by Duncan, Sarah comes to stay - which not only drives everyone insane but forces Martin and Julie to examine various aspects of their own relationship and sex life.
|3||3||Stress and Drugs||2007-03-08||30||
As his daughter smacks up another car, Martin is getting more stressed than usual. Julie suggests they seek advice from their friends Duncan and Sarah as to what they should do to reduce the anxiety levels. Duncan suggests Martin gets a completely new job and Sarah suggests Julie feeds Martin her leftover prescription drugs to help him through the job interviews. Not a good idea. Martin gets very strange in front of a very straight interview panel.
Julie's boss at the town hall retires, so she is in line for head of planning on the town council. She asks Martin and their daughters to help her campaign for the post. They plan various events to raise Julie's public profile but succeed only in making her look like a total liability. Martin is also trying to write an ad campaign for tampons but has 'issues' with the product.
