Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps

BBC Three and BBC Two sitcom about a group of 20-somethings. 79 episodes (9 series), 2001 - 2011. Stars Natalie Casey, Will Mellor, Sheridan Smith, Kathryn Drysdale and others.

Series 6, Episode 6 - Croppity Crops

Janet is reeling that Gaz tried to take Corinthian and decides to increase security in the home. Jonny gets a job as a farmer. Donna persuades Gaz to try tantric sex, but he gets hooked on it, much to her frustration. Louise wants a new family and she knows exactly where to find one.

Further details

A nasty situation with Gaz has been avoided and Corinthian stays with Janet and Jonny, but the experience has left Janet protective and paranoid. And for some reason it's left Jonny wanting to become a self-sufficient farmer.

Donna suggests to Gaz his urge to procreate could be appeased by making donations to the sperm bank. Realising it's his dream job, Gaz decides to take the situation in hand.

Louise is feeling unloved, and Janet welcomes her into the family. But Louise gets a little too involved and soon they can't get rid of her at all. But Janet doesn't mind too much; Louise is providing extra protection from Gaz.

Louise has discovered that Jonny's self-sufficiency is somewhat compromised by him buying all his supposed produce from a supermarket and attempts to blackmail him. But Janet comes to the rescue, realising that Louise is more of a threat to Corinthian than Gaz ever was.

But Gaz has an even bigger scare, as the sperm-bank write to tell him that he's actually 'firing blanks'.
