Nigel is Hilarious
19 March 2006 | by (Shawnee, OK, USA) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. Nigel Planer's 'Den Dennis' complains to a waitress that the menu says "bangers," yet he only receives one sausage on his plate, all during the taping of the diner scene. Chaos ensues.

{Without further ado, a few spoilers}

And when the end comes, well only with a down-on-their-luck band could have so much trouble. The guys get fed up with the film crew, after having ran out of petrol, and so beat them up and steal all of their recording equipment and the van they had (just because the film crew could not 'interfere' with reality). Next thing we know, the boys in the band try to continue the filming in regular chaotic style. As the film runs out, sound recording continues. The boys argue as the credits roll, and cannot come together on any good resolution to continue with the film themselves. The audio ends for us, so we think that the only conclusion these trouble musicians could agree on, was to leave the whole lot. Or perhaps trade it in for money.
