Goofs

In the episode 'Apocalypse', Eddie (disguised as the grim reaper) states that he doesn't know how to play chess, and Richie says that he will teach him. However, in the later episode 'Culture', it is the other way around - Eddie knows how to play chess, and Richie does not. See more »

Quotes

Eddie: [to Richie] How's your sausage?
Richie: [looking surprised] 's A bit personal, isn't it? Oh, I see, you mean my *sausage*!
[points at frying pan]
Eddie: Yes?
Richie: You're asking me about my sausage?
Eddie: Sausage, yes?
Richie: Not my penis?
Eddie: [astonished] No!
Richie: Oh, thank heavens for that! Well, what can I tell you, Eddie, it's an absolute disaster! I just can't get the hang of this cooking lark! I mean, you put the sausage in the pan, you set it on fire, and what happens? It gets incinerated!
Eddie: Well, maybe we should eat our flakes?

Brrrrilliant!
9 September 2004 | by (north pole) – See all my reviews

Richard Richard and Edward Hitler...ahhh...I love everything these guys do. Rik Mayall and Adrian Edmondson is the most violent,fun comedy act around.I'd go as far as saying that this duo is as equal revolutionary as Monty Python. It's really not easy comparing this...all I can think of is The Young Ones(another show by Edmondson and Mayall).Expect your typical in-your face British humor with a dose of Python meeting Ren and Stimpy. Watch these sad old roommate gits,Richie - always trying to score with some bird and using horrible pick-up lines and Ed Hitler,drunken looser.They seem to always beat up each other silly...and and...now just go and watch it..you bastard!
