This week’s LIP SERVICE was the last one in the series and if you’d have told me 5 episodes ago that I’d be sad to see it end I would have laughed merrily out loud. But I kind of am.
What started as, quite frankly, a ridiculous cliché riddled piece of trash has developed into an engaging hour or so of TV. Gone is the need to shoe-horn in the weekly ‘shock moment’ that added nothing to the plot but ensured a few more column inches in the morning papers. The viewing figures have been high enough, a second series will probably follow, no need for anymore danger shaving in the bathtub.
So we kick off the last Lip Service wondering what will become of the girls? Is Frankie ever gonna find out who she really is (it’s cold out there, only so much aimless wandering one girl can do) and is it to be SamKat of FranCatie??
I don’t know about you but I couldn’t wait for the Uncle/Dad storyline to be revealed because to be honest it was starting to irritate me. More photo albums and family trees than an episode of Who Do You Think You Are and when the Uncle/Whatever started talking in riddles I wanted it over with. Anything short of him peeling off his face to reveal it was a mask and he is in fact Tom Cruise ala Mission Impossible was a disappointment after the mother of all build ups.
