Toni's flat is actually the same flat as the one used for Mark and Jeremy's, the production team just redecorated it. See more »


In one scene Mark hides behind the front entrance doors of Apollo House, watching the kids through the letterbox, then Toni opens the door, accidentally knocking him over. In this scene the doors are covered with gray panels, however at the beginning of the episode when Mark first encounters the kids, we see that the doors are clear glass, with no letterbox.

Mark Corrigan: [trying to seduce Toni by talking about Stalingrad] See, by the winter of '42, the whole city was surrounded by the massed Sixth Army. It was pressing...
[he holds Toni's hand]
Mark Corrigan: And pressing. The Russians couldn't on much longer. Many wanted to submit.
Toni: Mark, you know I don't just bang anyone, yeah? I'm not some kind of next-door fuck jar.

of to a good start, format may take a bit getting used to
25 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We're introduced to the lives of flatmates office worker, Mark Corrigan and aspiring musician Jeremy Osborne (David Mitchell and Robert Webb, respectively)as they both via for the attention of neighbor Toni. Coming into this show knowing nothing except the rave reviews of it, I hadn't a clue what to really expect. I did enjoy this episode very British humour, very dry and cringe worthy (in a good way). The whole inner thoughts set-up will take a bit of getting used to, but I'll definitely give this show another shot and if it keeps the feel of the pilot episode, I'll not be hesitant to recommend it to others in the least bit.

My grade: B+
