Series / Lock, Stock...

Recycled: The Series to Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels. None of the actors or characters from the film returned, but it was a Spiritual Successor; Strictly Formula Guy Ritchie crime caper comedy with Cluster F Bombs and witty dialogue coming out the ears.


This series contains examples of;

  • A Bloody Mess: An odd variation, since it is blood, but animal blood from a bucket left lying around in Nefarious' meat locker.
  • British Brevity: A pilot move and seven 45-minute episodes.
  • Fun with Subtitles: while the guys laugh about the "bacradi" that nearly killed an entire hen night, the Dutch guys mutter to each other,
    They were lucky - how many died in Utrecht?
    Twenty four.
  • Man on Fire: Anyone who annoys Firebug gets set on fire.
  • My Local: A variation, as the protagonists own the pub.
  • National Stereotypes: the Greek is a small bald man who runs a kebab shop, the Dutch guys are stoners...
