* KatanasAreJustBetter: When Nidge's home is invaded in series 4, he carries one as a defensive weapon. Downplayed in that he's hiding the whole time, as it'd be pretty useless against Lizzie's MP5.

* PantsPositiveSafetyPantsPositiveSafety: Pretty much everyone carries their guns this way. Darren, at least, has the good sense not to stuff his down the front of his pants.


* FanDisservice: The final scene with Fran has him lying naked in a pool of his own blood, gagged and with a [[AssShove pool cue sticking out of his ass]].

** Siobhan and Pauley's sex scene while high on Ecstasy occurs in a filthy pub toilet and is in no way erotic.


A sixth series has been confirmed for 2016.


* KilledOffScreen: [[spoiler: Janet]]. The last time [[spoiler: she's]] seen alive is when four {{Mook}}s knock on the door. Judging by the fact that one of them is seen carrying a battery powered grinder and that [[spoiler: Janet]]'s body is shown with multiple bruises and slashed knees, it was likely a death that wouldn't have been out of place in a ''Film/{{Saw}}'' movie.

Added DiffLines:

* HypocriticalHumour: Hughie says that he hates JP acting like he owns the car dealership(which he does) and claims that he hasn't earned it and is just working off his dad's money. He's also a massive sponge off of John Boy who everyone wants to off(but wont because of John Boy's influence)

Added DiffLines:

*NeverLiveItDown: people act as if "Coola boola!" is Fran's catchphrase he only ever says it once (season 3, episode 1). Similarly, Tommy only asked for a "fizzy orange" once (season 4, episode 1).

Added DiffLines:

* ScrewedByTheNetwork: Taken off of Netflix within a few months of debuting.
