    Amazing, I just found it.

    Lavender Hair & Beauty Ltd: Home

    I love that they wrote in that bit where Miche doesn't understand what a Lavender flower is and just thinks it's a colour. I might go get my hair cut there. Only £22 for a gents wash and cut :thumbs:

    There's so many subtle blink and you miss it stuff I love going on. Like the Kurupt Schedule on the white board, if you pause it you see that between 6 and 8pm they just play 'Adverts' :D and there's some other DJ's called 'Phobia', 'Therapy' and 'Fusion' and Decoy has a 'bashment' set too.

    I also love how how Decoy does that looking to the camera with a slight smile when Grindah's freaking out about going to jail.

    The "What's your stance on Garage" scene was pure PJDN gold :D

    Sometimes there's a lot of shit lets laugh at the boys being dicks (esp to the women) but Steves (and the above) have been on top form :cool:

    Yes, the series seems to get better and better - was so funny!
    I think it's very well written (by cast members I think?)

    The realistic way Grindah was sulking when he was jealous was brilliant:D

    When you boil down the main characters, Decoy and Roche are probably the only ones who aren't totally deluded in some way. They're both still flawed to some extent because they hang in there - Roche in some belief that Beats will be more of a man and a good father figure, and Decoy because he either can't be arsed to do anything better, or he still believes the Kurupt is going somewhere, or quite possibly he still wants to be a part of Angel's life so uses Grindah/Kurupt as an excuse.

    I love the minor characters too. DJ Fantasy who's always in the background and barely gets a line. Weapon X the other white guy who's occasionally in shot just getting stoned. And Chabuddy G's mate Abdi, who you hardly ever see but you know he's just a poor guy who gets used like Steves. And Steves's Nan :cool:

    I love Miche's jealously too when Decoy brings round his girlfriend 'Becky'. And Grinda's when he doesn't get to ride up front of the car. Classic.

    Thought the last episode was the weakest actually, but it's been mostly excellent. They need to shift the plots back to Kurupt FM and Chabuddy's crap business ventures without caricaturing everyone too much.

    It is an odd show in some ways, taking 'The Office' and using it as a template with some rather complex class and race issues.

    Think I mentioned it before but it reminds me of Only Fools & Horses.

    Other mockumentary series I like are Modern Family & Parks & Recreation. Both went off the boil, eventually.

    Agreed. I think the 'deluded loser' thing is funny on Chabs but less so with Beats and Grinder. Mich's story was funny though. Her boss and colleagues are fucking arseholes. They were setting her up to fail with the drinks.

    My favourite line from the whole show is when Beats is being asked by the director if he likes older women

    Beats: "I get whatever I can, to be honest with you, and it just so happened that Roche liked man, so I just went true on it."

    Craig: "What?"

    In the last episode when he's staying at Beat's house I thought it was quite a nice and subtle touch that he didn't have the usual gelled fringe.

    I'm in W13 too! And I get my hair cut at Orange Chat, which you can see opposite Lavenders in many shots. And my hairdresser is quite a lot like Miche :hmm:
