Comedy series in which lifelong friends cope with everything modern life has to throw at them. Isa’s pulse is set racing as a long-lost companion returns to Craiglang from Hollywood. As Isa and Callum get reacquainted, she has to fend off stiff competition, especially from one particularly persistent gooseberry. Meanwhile, Boabby decides it’s time to get a car and learn to drive – but it doesn’t come easily, and he soon terrifies the life out of anyone who takes him for a lesson. As he quickly runs out of willing instructors, Callum steps in. He is a qualified driving instructor and comes to the rescue with the promise of a lesson in a local car park. Also trying to better their lot is Methadone Mick, who has enrolled in an online course that he doesn’t want to reveal to anyone, for fear that they will laugh at him. The thing is, Mick doesn’t have a computer, so he relies on Isa, Jack and Victor’s good will. Pushed to their limits, Jack and Victor demand to know what the course is.
