Channel 4 sitcom about two guys. 54 episodes (9 series), 2003 - 2015. Stars Robert Webb, David Mitchell, Olivia Colman, Matt King and others.

Series 3, Episode 2 - Sectioning

Merry, an eccentric old friend from university, is back on the scene, and things are looking up for Jeremy when she offers him the chance to manage a pub she owns.

Further details

Jeremy asks Super Hans to become his business partner but they argue the whole time because Super Hans refuses to serve beer in the pub.

Meanwhile Mark and Sophie are finally beginning to go steady, but Sophie is moved away from London for work. Mark is devastated, so Sophie offers phone sex as a solution, which Mark nervously accepts.

Merry's behaviour becomes odder and odder, and Mark and Jeremy are forced to consider getting their friend sectioned. And Jeremy realises that sectioning could be a good way of ridding his life of other problem people too!
