Martin falls for the gorgeous Julia, who's playing Judith, both Julia and Judith fall for the hunky Nick, who's playing Richard, and the film's eccentric director, Sir Roland, enjoys hating them all. Special cameo by Sylvester Stallone, who's interviewed about the movie on TV.

The first scene after the opening credits of this episode, the first of Season 2, sets the tone for the self-parody that permeates the entire story. Eddie Charles is in a hospital bed, eyes bandaged after cosmetic surgery. The character was played in Season 1 by Jeff Joseph
, and has now been replaced by Dorien Wilson
for the rest of the series. Eddie (the character) delivers lines that could be interpreted as the actor commenting off-camera about his own replacement. The doctor removes the bandages from his eyes, and he takes a look in the mirror. "Martin", he says to his friend Martin Tupper, "do I look different to you? . . . I don't look changed, somehow?" Martin thinks it over: "A little younger, maybe." See more
