Series 1, Episode 3 - Josh's Mum And Dad

Josh gets distracted when his parents return early from the three-month cultural world trip he gifted them.

Further details

The boys pitch Casey their idea for a new game. Unimpressed, she decides to conduct a full and brutal "personnel audit" to review what exactly each of them does for the company. In the case of Leon, the results are less than clear.

Watto's addictions begin to manifest themselves in peculiar ways. And Josh gets distracted when his parents return early from the three-month cultural world trip he gifted them. His mum has had her eyes opened. Maybe just a little too wide. With a tattoo and a new set of teeth, she's looking at a bright new future; one that may or may not involve Josh's dad.

Josh sets out on a guilt ridden-quest to save his parents relationship, enlisting 'surrogate son' Leon's help with less than helpful consequences.
