Enjoying the show too, laughed out when Keith Allen shot a hole in the beer keg.
Didn't realise it was Keith. However the campsite scenario was lifted straight out of Carry On Camping lets face it.

One point I have noted, I love Ricky Tomlinson but every character he seems to play is the same. There's so much Jim Royale in him I think he's morphed into Jim over the years.

Apart from the camping aspect I can't see the parallels to Carry on Camping.

As Kristen Scott Thomas said the other week 'they employ you because of what they've seen you do'
I said earlier in the thread that Ricky wasn't exactly pushing his acting skills to the limit here, well within his comfort zone.

Loving this series. Its fun, doesn't take itself too seriously and its nice to see something a bit different on our screens.

Having said that I thought the last episode was a bit poor - I think it might just have been a bit too silly.

Hope they do another series.

Last episode... I think my fave episode was the first one, the references to Man United, as a United fan, where the funniest parts of the series to me.

Jez Quiggley was one of my favourite ever Corrie characters, like a satanic Robbie Williams.

"Steven James McDonald, come on down!'. One of my favourite lines from Corrie ever!

It's one of those attractions when you say "how did that happen?" when a dork pulls a beauty....

Was it ok then?
After the dead cat in the first episode I didn't have much hope

BTW, did anyone else spot that the United supporter's dad was played by the bloke who was Kenny Senior in Phoenix Nights?

That was truly great. So obvious, so blatant and yet performed with such brilliant timing. Great TV, no sex for the sake of it, no gratuitous swearing, just a fun show executed to perfection for a dull Friday night.

I really hope another series is planned.

Started watching this at the beginning of the series, didn't think i'd like it. Every week I've got more and more hooked.

I hope another series is on the cards.

I've enjoyed all episodes - it's good to have a funny programme that has actually made me laugh - they seem to be few and far between these days.

If you've watched any of those police car video shows on Sky, you would've heard Lee Boardmans voice, he was the voiceover for Road Wars/Street Wars.
