In the first episode, Craiglang's residents can't resist the temptation of the Futuroo catalogue and its innovations to ‘make life that wee bit easier'. However, it quickly becomes apparent these gadgets do anything but.
Meanwhile, Winston receives a registered letter which sees him prepare for the arrival of his brother, Walter. As Jack and Victor spar over whose gadget is best, there's a spot of sibling rivalry between Winston and Walter.
Later, Winston confronts Walter on the real reason for his surprise visit and Jack needs help after taking himself off for an unfeasibly long bath.
