Another Enjoyable Episode
25 December 2014 | by slightlymad22See all my reviews

After a great first episode, "Bottom" delivers another funny episode

Plot In A Paragraph: Richie and Eddie are visited by the Gasman to read their meter, which is illegally connected to their next door neighbour Mr. Rottwhiler's gas supply. When Richie and Eddie pretend that they don't use gas and do not even know what Gas is (really) and when he says he is visiting Mr. Rottwhiler next, they accidentally kill the Gasman. So Richie and Eddie set out to disconnect their illegal connection from Mr. Rottwhiler's flat, before they get into trouble with the Gas Board and worse the police.

You could see some of the jokes coming in this episode, but that does not make it any less enjoyable.

I'm glad my nine year old son is enjoying a comedy that I loved back when it was first released
