Trivia

When discussing about disconnecting their illegal gas connection. Eddie tells Richie that the time is 6:15PM and that have until 9AM the following morning to disconnect the illegal gas connection, which Eddie miscalculates as 4 hours/27 minutes. It is actually 14 hours/45 minutes. That means Richie and Eddie have under 15 hours to disconnect the illegal gas connection. See more »

Richie: Yeah!
[pause, disgusted look]

Another Enjoyable Episode
25 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

After a great first episode, "Bottom" delivers another funny episode

Plot In A Paragraph: Richie and Eddie are visited by the Gasman to read their meter, which is illegally connected to their next door neighbour Mr. Rottwhiler's gas supply. When Richie and Eddie pretend that they don't use gas and do not even know what Gas is (really) and when he says he is visiting Mr. Rottwhiler next, they accidentally kill the Gasman. So Richie and Eddie set out to disconnect their illegal connection from Mr. Rottwhiler's flat, before they get into trouble with the Gas Board and worse the police.

You could see some of the jokes coming in this episode, but that does not make it any less enjoyable.

I'm glad my nine year old son is enjoying a comedy that I loved back when it was first released
