Storyline

Disillusioned school teacher Dan wakes to find he cannot find his trousers and his girl-friend Naomi, tired of his unrealistic attitude to life, in the process of leaving him. After his equally strange father, dressed in a bear suit, has assaulted him, Dan drives to school wearing old track suit bottoms but, when pupil Jason starts his work experience at a tailor's shop, Dan sees the chance to blag himself new trousers and accompanies the boy. However the tailor is not pleased to see that Dan is wearing his mother's panties and chases him out of the shop and down the street. Written by don @ minifie-1

Episode 1
10 April 2017 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Greg Davies is the infantile schoolteacher Dan who in the first episode has lost his trousers and his girlfriend.

He needs to rush to school and also see his friend, a financial adviser about getting a mortgage, not before getting involve in a scuffle with his father (Rik Mayall) who is dressed as a bear. It seems like a father and son bonding session.

We also get to see Dan's grown up daughter who has managed to get a job with the financial adviser. She actually makes her dad look responsible and wise.

The episode ends with Dan getting beaten up in a gentleman's tailor shop for being a nonce as he is caught wearing woman's underwear. I am glad it was mentioned this item of clothing was ladies underwear because it just looked like underwear to me in a rather fetching red colour.

The first episode tried to hard to be frenetic and wacky. Davies channels a young Rik Mayall with his facial expressions but we have the real thing here already.
