Some good lines and quite a few tropes to kick off series two. My my though, hasn't Errol grown? :)

I was wondering if he'd be taller than his uncle now. Luckily he hasn't quite grown that much yet.

I liked her Good Will Hunting people.

Made more obvious by showing a clip from him from last year at the start . . .

Enjoyable. It will be interesting to see where it goes, now that essentially everyone's happy with Errol hanging out with his uncle.

Adored the line about scrambled egg having no discernible boundaries.

Good start to the series. Loved Andy's job at the Carpet shop - they will never sack him, will they?

For anyone who (like me) cares:

The fingerpicked electric guitar after 'You're fired!" is Jackson Browne accompanying Nico from her 1967 debut album.

I didn't watch it but I do care about such things. Music nerds of the world unite!

Yes, that was good.

Tonigth's Uncle was fun, I liked it more than last week's, seemed a better balance of plot and gag.

I thought that it was good too and the range of characters and plots are impressive. I think it works well because the central characters, however dysfunctional, are both believable and likeable.

I wasn't sure it would work as well now that the Uncle and the boy aren't against each other like they were for a lot of series 1 but they've made it work well. They now just inspire each other into disasters.
