** But not in the final season, when it is revealed that [[spoiler:Super Hans' real name is Simon]] - the same as Dobby's ex-boyfriend, a fairly major character in the previous season.

Added DiffLines:

* ShipTease: In the third series episode Mark and Big Suze hang out together while Jez is dating Mark's sister. They hit it off very well and Mark quickly develops a crush on her that Suze seems completely oblivious too... at least until the end of the episode when Mark 'dumps' her for the sake of Jez and it is hinted she might have had a soft spot for Mark too.

* CelebrityParadox: If you've seen DavidMitchell's appearances on ''QI'' and other panel shows, it's a bit odd to hear Mark make an offhand remark about Creator/JimmyCarr, and even more so to hear him compare his proposed escape from [[spoiler:his wedding]] to Creator/StephenFry's suicide attempt and temporary disappearance. Still funny, though.

* PutOnABus: Sophie does not appear in Series 8. This is explained in episode 1 when Jeff turns up in Sophie's place at the flat to collect her and Mark's baby, then informs Mark that him and Sophie have got back together and moved into 'Nana's cottage' near Sophie's parents house in the countryside. It doesn't look like we'll be seeing much more of Jeff now either.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Just what was up with the title music in the first season? Weirdly enough, a snippet of said music is still used whenever there is a transition between scenes in subsequent season.

** In episode two, Jeremy thinks about "Mum 'n' Dad", implying his parents are still married. We find out in series five that Jeremy's father left his mother when Jez was ten.

* AmbiguouslyBi: Both of the flatmates have crushes on men at one point: Mark with Alan Johnson, and Jeremy with Stu the monk. In episode 4, Mark actually buys a gay porn video to see if he's bisexual, but decides it's not for him.
-->'''Mark''' ''(thinking about Johnson)'': I do quite enjoy it when he's rude to me. Hopefully that's just a psychological defect rather than a weird sexual thing.
-->'''Jeremy''' ''(thinking about Stu)'': Look at those muscles. That is what a man should look like. And those arms! Like bows of sturdy English oak. I wonder how it'd feel to have those wrapped around you. You'd just feel so ''safe''!
-->'''Jeremy''' ''(about to have an unwanted [but consensual] sexual encounter)'': Just imagine it's Stu. Lovely Stu.
** In the final series, this is more or less confirmed for [[spoiler:Jeremy]] after he starts a regular sexual relationship with a guy.



* BerserkButton: Super Hans has a thing about "locked doors - ever since Dad locked me in the airing cupboard to monitor the homebrew..."
** ''"This is [[CrowningMomentOfFunny bullshit!]]"''
** Toni also counts. She gets...shall we say...defensive over PeterGabriel
** CAULIFLOWER ''IS'' TRADITIONAL!
* BewareTheNiceOnes: When Mark apprehends a burglar, Big Suze suggests tying him up in the bath, then burning him with cigarettes to extract information.



* BiTheWay: Super Hans is never actually stated as bi or gay, but is involved in a few overtly homosexual acts throughout the series.
** Jeremy as well:
-->'''Jeremy''': Tell me, how many men have you slept with.
-->'''Sophie''': Four.
-->'''Jeremy''': (Four? I've slept with more men than that, and I sleep almost exclusively with women.)



* ButNotTooBi: Jeremy has a generally relaxed attitude towards his sexuality, and has been involved in a few sexual encounters with men (even if some were while high) indicating that he may be bisexual, but he exclusively forms relationships with and shows attraction to women throughout the series and is never explicitly stated as bi.[[spoiler: His bisexuality becomes a lot less ambiguous by series 9, however]].



* {{Buttmonkey}}: Mark is a prime example. Jeremy, though he has better luck in life, has his moments as well.



* CanonDiscontinuity: Jez used to be a nurse, but doesn't seem to know even the most basic medical terms. In the pilot he idly wonders if someone can "catch" cancer, and in episode 6 he doesn't know what a hospice is or what it means to be terminally ill. This can be attributed to Jeremy simply being an idiot, but it still leaves one with the question of how he got the job in the first place.

* ClosetGeek: Mark has shades of this. In series 1, Jeremy finds a fantasy model painting magazine hidden in his cupboard (which, of course, he mistakes for porn). When he meets Dobby, he's revealed to play a WoW-like game called [[BlandNameProduct Fantasy Warquest]]. Finally, when entering a geek shop with Gerard, he monologues about not feeling as awkward "since he bought his first twenty sided die".



* GoldDigger: [[spoiler:Mark]] decides NOT to call off [[spoiler:his engagement to Sophie]] so he can get to live in her grandmother's cottage.



* PapaWolf: If you come after [[spoiler:Mark's]] baby Ian, [[spoiler:Mark]] will stab you! "Stab you right in the eye!"



* TheTeetotaler: [[spoiler:Johnson]] is a teetotal former alcoholic before he snaps at the end of series 7 during Big Suze's New Year's Eve party.



* TooDumbToFool: Jez could be said to be Too Lazy To Fool, since his time spent as a brainwashed cult member lasted ''days''.

* PacManFever: Averted. In early series, Mark is shown to be playing ''Blitzkrieg'' and ''VideoGame/TetrisWorlds'', then relatively recent games. PS2 games can also clearly be seen in the flat.

* TwelveAngryMen: Jez just can't resist any opportunity to "stick it to TheMan" in this scenario, no matter how belated.
