The synopsis below may give away important plot points.


  • The boys have been picked to appear on University Challenge, will they make it there in time after Neil forgets to tell them, then Rick get's them thrown off the train? They do finally (two weeks late mind, lucky Mike knows the host really isn't it?), but the posh gits they're up against, whilst no more intelligent, have a reputation to upkeep! After being told that the BBC always lets the posh kids win, they decide to do the only thing that can save them- cheat!

    In the shows interludes you can see: a British Rail train being held up by Mexican revolutionaries, while the driver waxes lyrical about the KGB's hiring policies; sentient washing mahcines; Vyv's violent hamster (SPG) nutting the opponents mascot; that the whole episode is taking place on a microscope slide in a Scottish 19th Century doctor's surgery and Motorhead (who turn up for the musical interlude). This tells you more about the style of the show than a plot summary ever could
