About this deal

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Series 1 A gentle yet compelling story of life, love, loneliness and blocked urinals. Each evening, the regulars bring their particular foibles and characterstics up to the bar. Overhearing their conversations and reliving the events in each of their lives is both moving and amusing.Series 2 The welcome return of the gentle, critically acclaimed comedy set entirely in The Grapes, a small pub in the North of England. Into this warm, slightly hopeless environment come a group of lovable characters who like a pint, but more than that, like each other. Lads Joe and Duffy command centre table and most of the conversation, largely at the expenses of landlord Ken's less acute regulars, such as Eddie, for whom a change in the town's traffic flow can become a preoccupation Features As per original releases


Early Doors S2 The welcome return of the gentle, critically acclaimed comedy set entirely in The Grapes, a small pub in the North of England. Into this warm, slightly hopeless environment come a group of lovable characters who like a pint, but more than that, like each other. Lads Joe and Duffy command centre table and most of the conversation, largely at the expenses of landlord Ken's less acute regulars, such as Eddie, for whom a change in the town's traffic flow can become a preoccupation. Meanwhile, Ken's preoccupation is how his stepdaughter Melanie will respond to having met her real dad, while local policemen Nige and Phil show their concern over the level of crime in the neighbourhood by listening to police radio in the comfort of Ken's snug. Overhearing their conversations and reliving the events in each of their lives is both moving and amusing.

    Joan: "Did you hear about Giro Jim?"
    Eddie: "Oooooooh, can I tell the story Joan?"
    Joan: "No."
    Eddie: "Oh."
    Joan: "He was in here on Saturday night, and he was feeling peckish, so he called the Peking Palace and ordered his chicken and eggy fried rice to be delivered to his house. He then walked round and went in and said 'Have you get a delivery for Giro Jim? Yes they said - Well, I'm Giro Jim... will you give me a lift?"
    Eddie: "And ate his eggy fried rice on the way!!"

    I don't like Mrs brown boys as I think its overrated and too fouled mouth for my taste.

    Unmatched writing and performances - every line was a joke on the way to another joke.
