In Turn Up Charlie Episode 5 Charlie (Idris Elba) seems to be enjoying a new lease of life, enjoying his time in the studio developing this tune that Sara (Piper Perabo) has taken an interest in. Meanwhile, David (JJ Feild) is having a career-crisis, with his stage play encouraging critics to criticize him, and distract him from what’s important – family.

But Sara insists that David should not allow the distractions to get to him, and he should proceed with spending time with Gabby (Frankie Hervey). In the studio, Charlie is testing out the new tune with Sara’s trusted sound editor, but you can tell he’s not impressed with the work so far. To think of new ideas, he goes on a walk with Sara, where they discuss the past and the present.

David and Gabby’s day out turns into a disaster. At the start, Gabby persuades her dad to allow her to get a belly piercing, but when he takes her on the Big Wheel, she begins to get menstruation cramps – a father’s worst nightmare, David’s daughter is experiencing her first period. Turn Up Charlie Episode 5 gets hilarious with David trying to shout out instructions in how to deal with tampons and pads through the bathroom door. Her mother soon arrives and takes over.

Turn Up Charlie Episode 5 gets a little strange as Charlie seems to have become all philosophical about life, giving David advice about his career and family. David is initially annoyed at Charlie’s involvement, but then thanks him for the words, and suggests he is tempted to take the Hollywood deal in America. It seems that the series is constructing the idea that Charlie will be the savior for this family.
