After three previous episodes, one of them soundtracking the video for Thyla's Motherlode earlier this year, Riccardo Salvi's hapless, sexually frustrated Nerd Guy character returns to the accompaniment of garage rock outfit Baby Jesus.

In this episode, Nerd Guy employs a 'life coach' to train him to be the sort of person that has hold down a proper relationship with a girl. Under his stern guidance, Nerd Guy begins a Rocky-style transformation into eligible maleness. What could possibly go wrong now? Well, obviously everything. 

It's another bout of cartoonish visual comedy on a ludicrously small budget that almost harks back to another era of comedy - but highly enjoyable for all that. Salvi's Nerd Guy is becoming a cherishable character, always flirting with disaster. That's all he's comfortable flirting with.
