Episode Summary

EDIT
The Talking Pictures
AIRED:
Back from the road, the elation Anna, Dee and Q were feeling quickly fizzles. Their music is getting better but no one wants to take them seriously as a group. Adding to the problems are: Anna’s over-bearing mother as well as her live-in lover; Q’s boy toy flat mate; and, Dee’s being torn between Spike and his commune and David – the groupie who followed her to London.. In order to get ahead, they need money. Anna is a bit more secure as her father left her a house and some capital; Dee is still living at the commune and, although they are quite over-protective of her, she still has room and board free. It’s Q who is really in financial straits – having not only to pay for herself but her Las Vegas surfer boy friend. So, Q goes begging for her old job and is surprised that her boss in the porn business has decided to not only let her star in something “soft” (as opposed to SEX ZOO – her last x-rated feature) but feels that this one will have rock music and a Little Ladies soundtrack album. Q assures him that Anna and Dee are also “lookers” so the Little Ladies decided that the underlying theme of the film (“Eventually everybody works for the pornographers”) is symbolic of their situation as well as their last chance so they begin filming Hot Neon. Half-way through, the director decides he miscalculated and wants to go from “soft” to “just-a-little-bit -hard” core porn prompting Dee to shout, “That’s like saying a girl is just a little bit pregnant.” With the commune fully supporting Dee, the Little Ladies stop production of the movie and walk out on their contract and back into a rock club in London where they wow the audience with the semi-autobiographical song “The Talking Pictures” in which they tell of their plight into the porn business.moreless
