This deluxe appreciation of John Sullivan's peerless sitcom continues, profiling its supporting cast. Boycie, Marlene, Denzel and Mickey all get their due, but there is a particularly heartfelt tribute to broom-pushing dimbulb Trigger. The reconvened cast and crew also get to react to some never-before-seen outtakes from the show's uproarious live tapings, including some cushty business with barman Mike and a beermat.
