  • Absolutely Hysterical.

    In this episode, Andy is distraught over the very poor reviews his sitcom, "When the Whistle Blows," has received. He is ashamed that he gave in to producers at the BBC in regards to changing the show from what Andy originally had planned. Darren (Stephen Merchant) and Barry (Shaun Williamson) have an exchange of dialogue in a pub that could possibly be the funniest bit part of the entire series. It will have you on the floor laughing. The 'star' in this episode is David Bowie, who isn't all that involved. In the end, Andy realizes that where he belongs and fits in isn't quite the same as places that David Bowie frequent.
