Storyline

Bill is concerned that David's interest in death is not helped by Ben,who,on his way to the school parents' evening,imagines himself to be the Terminator and cuts up a Ford Escort. Discovering that the driver is disabled he feels ashamed but later accepts a challenge to race him - and loses. Bill fears that she may be pregnant again and buys a home testing kit but when one of the testers goes missing and Jenny acts oddly it looks as if Jenny is the one who is expecting. Rona has a talk with her and discovers she is bulimic whilst Ben,who actually took the test for a laugh,finds that he tested as being pregnant. Written by don @ minifie-1

Funny, moving and poignant.
30 March 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Hormones is a virtually perfect episode of 2.4 Children, the writing is incredibly good, it's funny, and features one of the most poignant moments in the show's history.

Every character is now hugely established, and massively in character here, Ben is the overgrown schoolboy ready to take on the world. David is just weird, Jenny is suffering the torment of teenage life, and Bill is of course keeping them all in line.

There's the hilarious scene where Bill and Rona are attempting to cook the lobsters, contrasted with the tragic scene where Jenny admits to having bulimia. It's that mix of funny and sad, as well as the ability to tackle a situation so relevant. No single sitcom these days can blend comedy and humour.

Virtually perfect. 10/10
