Mountain Goats (2014– )
6 May 2014Pilot: Miller's Mountain
Hapless alcoholic mountaineer/ice cream van driver Jimmy Miller (Jimmy Chisholm) is entrusted with training eager novice Conor (Kevin Guthrie) in the art of mountain rescue but instead seems preoccupied with downing as much drink as possible, scoring "hellish" egg rolls and fending off scathing one-liners from The Busted Femur's landlady, Jules (Sharon Rooney). When a distress call is finally received, the incompetent Jimmy sets out on a calamitous rescue attempt that rapidly dissolves into a hilarious staccato of broken limbs, pineapple chunks and cannibalism.

Whilst walking volunteer Bill's dog Tom Jones Jimmy manages to lose him and annoys Bill further by insisting on leading the search party rather than bringing in rival group the Inverkelly Rescue Service. An irate Bill storms out but when Tom Joes reappears Jimmy is able to use him to track Bill down and effect a daring if revealing rescue. Jules' efforts to attract a bunch of middle class ladies to a gourmet evening are much aided by a sudden outbreak of male nudity.
