Whilst Jen flees Doug's advances and looks for a place where she is allowed to smoke Moss, feeling that he spends too much time with Roy, answers an advert for what he thinks is a German cookery course though in fact Johann, the German who placed the ad, is a cannibal who wants somebody to eat. Hearing that Johann has a state of the art television Roy pretends to offer himself as a victim, solely so that he can watch his new pirate DVD. Before anybody is eaten though there is a police raid but they are more concerned with the pirate DVD than cannibalism. Written by don @ minifie-1

Jen: [just got off the phone with Douglas's PA] Right, I'm off. Douglas is on his way down.
Roy: So?

Roy: I wanna go for a ride in the helicopter!
Jen: Then grow a pair of tits.
Roy: [more to himself] If I did have tits, I wouldn't mind letting someone have a go on them for a ride in a helicopter.

Surreal, Hilarious, brilliant episode.
21 November 2015 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Roy and Moss are having a movie evening, trying to illegally stream a movie. Moss is having lots of strops, he fears they're spending too much time together, like an old married couple. Katherine's struggling with quitting smoking, she's also being pursued by new boss Douglas. Jen suggests Moss attends an evening class, learning German cooking, but it's not quite as it seems. Roy ends up having a man date with Douglas to watch a film.

I loved the downloading films is stealing advert, that was hilarious.

Crazy funny episode, Moss's cookery course is completely surreal but really funny. I'm so glad Matt Berry joined the show I love his humour, he's awesome, the man date with Roy was funny as, we all know people like him!

The smoking sequences were absolutely wonderful, and how true! Jen in her scarf, so funny.

Loved it so much. 9/10
