The Good Life
In Series 1 Episode 4: Pig’s Lib, Tom & Barbara test Margot’s patience by adding to their ever growing mini farm in their garden. Is this one step too far? Is this the prequel to ‘Confessions of a Window Cleaner’? Are they making Poitín? Does naming your cows help produce more milk? As per, we’ll raise all these questions and more without coming to any real conclusion.
