Series 1, Episode 2 - Hairy

Barry accuses sleep-deprived Carrie of being a body-hair fascist when she resorts to waxing his back in the middle of the night. He's had enough too of best mate Kirk and his lack of sophistication.

Barry can do better and befriends French intellectual neighbour Jean-Francois who he introduces to the delights of the British pub. Michelle meanwhile suggests Carrie tries sex as an aid to sleep.
