800 Words Recap
Although I am not fond of George being in a relationship, this episode was really good. Monty turned out to be the real hero. The character is generally humorous overall and it was fun to watch him stand up to his brother. It still appears that Jan’s big surprise might ruin George’s new relationship before too long. Who knows? Only time will tell. The episode scores a 7 out of 10. Catch up with previous recaps of 800 Words now!
