Cowboys is the culmination of all the western references in series 2. Earlier on, the lads have compared themselves to the Magnificent Seven and the Wild Bunch; Oz has said that he went to Nashville, Memphis and Texas (and met someone claiming to be Merle Haggard) and Dennis has complained to Howard Radcliff that the lads do not want to do a cowboy job. In Cowboys, the lads attend a country and western night, Oz sings a country song, they meet a real cowboy plumber, and have a western-style stand down at the end. Andalucia, where some of series 2's action takes place was also the location where a number of the so called spaghetti westerns were filmed. See more
