Lewis Archer: Super Cad

please note this post makes reference to the January 16 episode on CBC

I say! Lewis Archer! What the devil do you think you're playing at, you bounder! I confess fellow fans, that I almost choked on my chocolate digestive when I witnessed the horrific scene of Lewis doing a lip lock with the love-starved Gail Platt.

I honestly don't know where to start. I know Gail doesn't exactly have discriminating taste in men (a pulse is optional - ed) but really! Doing the dirty with your mom's ex? That really takes the cake.

And Lewis. Yes I know he's a male gigolo with a penchant for Pinot and Cinema noir, but has he no scruples? Is he planning to sleep with every member of the Platt family? (David's next - ed) How long will this legover-oriented revenge scenario play out?

And the worst part is it really didn't take much to seduce Gail. Oh sure, Lewis pulled a few fake sincere chestnuts out of his arsenal of sensitive one-liners. But it seems to me, he could have had it off with Mrs. Platt using even cheesier material like:

"Gail, if I told you you had a beautiful body, would you hold it against me?"


"I wish my name was 'T' or 'V' because then I would be next to 'U' "


"Do you believe in love at first sight, or should I walk by the bistro again?"

or even,

"Are those space pants? Because your ass is out of this world!"

(Well, maybe not the last one, but you get the idea)

  1. I'd like to play around with some demos and learn out to use CAD programs a little bit. What is the Industry standard? AutoCAD?.
