Worth a mention as a show which ''never'' relied on cliché to any extent; any tropes that popped up were usually subverted and [[DoubleSubversion double-subverted]] within minutes, if not seconds. The entire premise of the series, such as it was, was a particularly odd subversion of the DysfunctionalFamily trope. Its [[SpiritualSuccessor spiritual descendant]], ''{{Bottom}}'' -- basically Mayall and Edmondson playing even more unpleasant [[{{Expy}} Expies]] of their ''Young Ones'' characters -- premiered in 1991.

* StarvingStudent: Taken to ridiculous extremes. The lads can't actually afford the rent on their shithole of a house, serve one corn flake to each guest at their party and their staple diet appears to be cornfalkes and lentils (which almost always end up spilled on the ground). "[[BrokeEpisode Cash]]" shows them burning everything in the house so as not to freeze to death.

Added DiffLines:

* DeusExMachina: Played for laughs in 'Cash' - the lads are broke and have burned just about all of their possessions to stay warm...and then a lorry carrying vast amounts of money and luxury goods crashes through the wall.
