  • This is what it's all about

    This is probably my favourite episode. It contains some of the best lines of the series ("this isn't grass, it's oregano"), the best gunfight I have ever seen on the small screen, and the best Jamie Oliver impression known to man. It's also nice to see the two leads interacting properly, after the fairly separate first few episodes.

    It always strikes me how apt the chosen music is - from the obvious (Barber's adagio) to the less so (bloodbubble), and the plain barmy (the Kia Ora song - okay, so maybe that one doesn't count).

    Plus - and this is the clincher - the most realistic stoned acting yet to grace mainstream television.

    This... is the good sh*t. Whoa mama.moreless
  • The who episode is kind of playful, but not very important story-wise.

    Coming off of a strong episode filled with lots of character and plot development, it's a little disappointing to come to a one-off kind of episode with little development.

    This is mostly about relationships in a vague sense. We can see that Tim has been seeing Sophie for a short time, because he is kind of surprised not to be seeing her that night (she has to work late), yet from their conversation we can see they haven't had sex, so the relationship cannot have been going on for too long. Daisy is not showing any clear signs of jealousy, and Tim is freaking out over his diminished trust in women in general, especially those who have to work late. Oddly enough, this episode is almost all about Daisy and Tim bonding in the absence of others, and culminates in them almost cuddling and speaking intimately face to face/cheek to cheek on the stoop as they await someone to come home.

    Brian is having some continued difficulties with Twist (who we have not seen for a long time except for a short phone call from a few episodes back), and starts to think of women as all powerful foot soldiers of Gaia, which Mike balances with a male's universal ability to play gun fight. A little cheesy when it becomes part of the main plot, but it was ok to be introduced for the first time.

    The overall vibe of the episode is one of playfulness and adventure that ends all right, but only after several obstacles and misfortune, including meeting Duane, the guy who 'stole' Tim's girlfriend.moreless

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Tim has a Wolverine keychain on his key ring

    • Music: The Bluetones - Bloodbubble

    • The extras in the background of the pub Tim and Daisy are in are all visitors of the fansite

    • The scene when Tim and Duane and Daisy are in the booth in the pub had to be re-shot at the end of series filming because the sound was very bad thanks to the very loud band practicing next door.
      There wasn't enough in the budget for it until Simon & Jess persuaded Channel 4 to part with some money for some specially made trailers. They made the very basic trailers and used the spare cash for the re-shoot. Cheeky!

  • NOTES (0)


    • Duane Benzie (played by Peter Serafinowicz) says the lines "At last I will have revenge." This is a reference to a line by Darth Maul (also voiced by Serafinowicz) in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace.

    • When Duane is surrounded by the townies towards the end of the episode he says "Clever Boys". This refers to the line "Clever Girl" in Jurassic Park when raptors surround the hunter.
