    Is anyone liking this? Costwold village based mokumentary based around two underachieving cousins. It's been mildly funny so far, done in the same style as People Just Do Nothing. I don't think it's as good as PJDN, but still not a bad effort. I can definitely see one or two characters from my rural youth in the main protagonists.

    I think I like that Kurtan is a bit like Gareth from The Office, but even more socially inept. Kerry is also great, and could be based on many people I've encountered in the past.

    Thought it was OK but a bit try-hard in places. Not seen this latest one. Various West Country types on the supporter's coach last Saturday had liked it too. No plumming from us!

    I enjoyed Episode 4. Fewer stand out moments though.

    Think this just got better and better and really liked it in the end, mention of Stroud in the last episode helped.

    I absolutely loved the conflict of the shouting match at the end. I don't want to give too much away, but it was hilarious :D
