That was great, right up to the really weird bit with the guy from the house that went on fire. Was that whole thing just for the punchline of Stath saying something inappropriate at the end?

The house viewing where he kept falling asleep had me in pain laughing.

Liked the first half a lot, but just didn’t find it as funny after the ad break. At least the people calling for more mentions of real world issues with the housing market should be happy!

Not to mention that Stath and Sophie still share a room despite both being in their 20s.

I heard an interview with yer man from This Country, he described sharing a room (and a bed?) with the sister after uni.

Maybe the brother/sister relationship in Stath is a bit cloying but I think it works for the programme it is. Stath has a charmingly surreal idiolect. Describing a pigeon eviction as 'quick and ridiculous' had me laughing anyway.

Yeah the way he talks makes me laugh every time. It's not the height of comedy genius but fuck me it's silly.

Shame they made him Brent it at the end of this episode.

It seemed forced and out of character (not that I know the charac that well). Offends someone then either he leaves, or they leave. And there's a lingering sense of shame. Total Brentage.

Latest episode was absolute chaos but I think my favourite so far.

Hello, another one here who's discovered this show through this thread! Thanking you

Pounded through all available episodes, and I really love it. Daft, warm-hearted, occasionally a bit bleak, enjoyable characters, and stuffed with funny memorable lines. So good

I love the whole Greek English/cockney as a comedy troupe. It’s always made me laugh from back when I first saw Stavros. There’s just something about the turns of phrase and the muddled English, almost a bit Chris Morris. Whitehouses’ character in Help was another one. “Hounslow”.

Me too. Loving it, thanks all. My first binge in ages. Don't really agree on the Brentage. All cringe doesn't equal Brent. He wasn't an accidental bigot in that scene. Most of the people Brent was accidentally winding up in The Office (aside from, most obviously, Gareth) were essentially decent people, but the people Stath was annoying were awful. Sath's comedy universe also feels a step or two less realistic than Brent's. Brent was a grotesque surrounded by people who played as ordinary, whereas Stath is a grotesque surrounded by other grotesques. For me, all this means the laughs in the scene were more belly, less cringe.

I find it incredibly funny when Stath's showing people around properties but mostly mildly funny at most other times. Not really enjoying Sophie - 'she's bad at singing and dancing' - but I love Carole. I've worked with many Caroles. She's brilliantly written and performed. Enjoyed her memory of her once kicking her little brother in the head 'and now he's always tired'

I think he's a fine physical comedian. When Sofia was pranking him and he keeps spilling his energy drink.

Just watching an episode now - Al: "What does that say? 'Urban Christ'. Powerful thought"

I spent far too long imagining the sequence of events that must have taken place between Al hanging up the phone, already part-way home on the Megabus, and arriving back in London to be the fifth person on a double-date.

They were all maybe a bit too stupid in the pizza parlour scenes in the new one. Still loved it though.

I've watched episodes of 3 to 5 of this series yesterday and was laughing til I coughed at some of it.

Yeah, that last episode was great. Loads of lovely little moments, and Al raving was a great ending shot

I love how it was such a special occasion that they were going out for a pizza, and their giddy excitement at going. Just daft sitcom silliness. Love this show
