Roy moves into his new flat and is then mistaken for a window-cleaner; and celebrity status for Moss comes easy when he reaches new heights on the renowned quiz show Countdown (1982), leading to exclusive membership of the 8+ Club. Jen is envious to know just what is going on in the Heads of Department meetings where soft, white dressings gowns are involved. She's feeling very left out and eager to find out.

Great Episode
6 July 2010 | by matejdujicSee all my reviews

I was really happy as 4th season had started but first episode wasn't so funny to me. But anyway i know that one average episode doesn't make show bad so couldn't wait for second epy and I was excited after seeing it. I've seen it three times now and I just can't stop laughing on the scene where moss and Roy enter the club 8+ with hip-hop music and low camera slow-motion walking. Of course legendary moments of unlicensed battles and matrix parody, invaluable moments anyway. Is it just me or Asian looking guy in dark dress smiled a little bit when he was "walking" away from Moss, when he was sitting in waiting room? Sorry for confusing English.
