About a 5 a side football team, who were all rejects from other teams and came together to form their own team. They don't win many matches. But people who don't like football can still enjoy this, as they don't really play that much. The personnel of the Rejects change gradually over the series'. But actors such as Paul Parris, Martin Delaney and Charlie Rolland remain throughout playing Barry ‘Bruno Di Gradi' Grade, the wannabe Italian, chip-loving-Hull-City-shirt-wearing Jason Summerbee, and gangly goalkeeping poet Ben Phillips, respectively. Other constant characters include Elvis-worshipping café owner Eddie McAvoy, and, for sheer comic value, Basil and Terry Stoker. Basil is the sports' teacher at Renford Comprehensive, and is the sort of teacher everyone can remember having for PE. Loves to shout and scream at people and order them around, lacks intelligence, and has very hard, old-fashioned ideas. His son, Terry, is supposed to be groomed like him, and plays the feared tough man and bully role, but often reveals a softer side. These two provide the comedy as dim characters, prone to being outwitted and saying daft things. Roger Davies also remains through the series as Vinnie Rodriguez, the Rejects' own reporter. The series was probably at its finest during the first series, with the excellent Holly Davidson playing the original girl in the team, and the star player of the Rejects, but it remains an enjoyable programme to watch.
