    Dirty Barry

    I think he was better in the earlier seasons. They made him a little too dim in later seasons.

    Yeah they definitely changed his character over the seasons. Early on he was a bit of a shady petty thief, a little dim, but that wasn’t played upon as much in early seasons. Rodney was actually a bit afraid of him - “Why do they call him Trigger, does he carry a gun?”

    In later seasons the shady petty crime aspect of his character was forgotten about and he was just a simpleton road sweeper.

    A great character though :D

    Why? It was supposed to be inappropriate in the scene. The Miranda only pretended to tolerate it because she wanted to scam them out of the painting. Rodney tried it later and got a slap across his Bo Grace.

    A few years ago I bought a bar mat for £50 that was used on the Nags Head pub set. My mother ended up throwing it in the bin as she thought it was an old one.

    I binged on every episode quite a few years ago when I was sick, and no joke had me crying with laugher more than this beauty.

    Del: "Michael, Michael, please a bottle of champagne for my partner and me. And make it the best champagne. A bottle of that Dillingers 75. That's Prince Charles's favourite champagne that.

    Australian lad: "No, that's Bollingers."

    Del: "It's bloody true!"

    I love the bit where Rodney announces he’s with a 40 year old and Del reckoned she was even too old for himself and then grandad replies “ i’d have to think twice” lol

    It might sound weird given some of the subject matter but my memories of watching that show were wholesome ones. People might say it was offensive nowadays, however, the underlying sentiments conveyed in the program were anything but.

    Yeah, this keeps coming up throughout this thread. People who assume loads of other people will be offended by it, but nobody has actually said they think it's offensive.

    I maintain that calling the mucic the black lads we playing "monkey music" is probably objectively offensive, but apart from that I don't think anyone has said they're actually offended by it.
