Great Night Out
Radio Times
Review by:
David Butcher

The gang’s misadventures this week revolve around an FA Cup game between Stockport County and Manchester United. That’s unfortunate because the football dialogue in this series tends to sound just a bit... wrong (sample: “We’ll shut their gobby fans up good and proper”). But like everything else with this knockabout show – the Looney Tunes plotting, the fondness for cheap gags, the relentless banjo music – it can’t stop us enjoying the sheer fun of the thing and the comic energy of the cast.

Daz has decided to propose to Colleen, but falls foul of her fantasist housemate Bev (a very believable Isy Suttie), while Glyn has Mad Tony’s mansion all to himself. But not for long.

About this programme

6/6. Glyn scuppers the lads' plans to go to what promises to be the biggest football match in history, meaning he will have to go to great lengths to make it up to them. Hodge and Kath begin a trial course in parenting, and come away feeling disappointed, while Daz enlists the help of Colleen's housemate Bev to spring a surprise on his girlfriend. Last in the series.
