    IMHO you've really missed out if you didn't even see the first series. Then again, it helped that one of the characters was very like a techie I knew, so that made it funnier.

    I know, and it's a programme I probably would have watched if I'd known about it at the time, but I probably ended up watching some other crap, or maybe it clashed with something good like NCIS :D

    Have been looking around. Fairly cheap in some places. Looks like could be cheaper buying them individually in some cases as well

    £18 for series 1-4 boxset

    You can get Series 1-2 for under £5 though

    By the time you throw in the postage though, there's not much difference. I prefer to pay for it to go through the real post, not Amazon Prime etc.

    Play.com is free postage

    Second-hand on Amazon Marketplace for under £5 (Series 1 and 2) including postage

    Amazon is free postage anyway

    I passed a posse of well turned out chaps and chapesses swilling champers from a bottle along Coldharbour Lane in Brikkers earlier, as they headed to the Doggers. "Gosh! That's awfully decadent!", I thought.

    Coming back from the pub, I passed two proper "Broken Brixton" young ladies, hopelessly drunk, wearing next to nothing and holding each other up as they staggered across Coldharbour Lane.

    A bit like this. But only two of them.

    Was really sad to read in the SLP today that Websters is closing - after 140 years apparently as Mr Webster is retiring and none of his kids want to take over. It's a really useful shop for me and we always enjoy going in there - we've always had really good service. Such a shame.

    Real Taste (28 Brixton Water Lane) which has been closed a while now seems to have work going on in there. Been painting and fitting going on for a week or so now.

    Any rumours? If it is a muffin or coffee shop I will not be held responsible for my actions :D

    Passed Paolo'z Way tonight and it is going to be called Where Am I cafe and shop as I think I already said. The shop part looks like it is going to be vintage knick knacks and clothes. cafe upstairs and shop down.

    How convenient for you - I look forward to seeing your new vintage knick-knacks outfit next time I see you. Not anywhere near my place though - I don't want the neighbours thinking I associate with SW2 types.

    That's a real shame. That was a proper shop.
