It was that i don't know anymore. It's hard to tell This week we're talking about episode four for the children which is a wonderful refrain through the episode. It's it's kind of used. As an epithet almost at one point which is delayed and we will kind of step through the plot a little bit. But we're probably just gonna talk because if you're listening to episode for of a ted lhasa podcast you've seen it. Please tell me you've seen it So this episode is is set around a charity gala that the football team hosts every year the football club getting pants territory And the the framework is sort of the typical day like post to the episodes. Start with But then it it very quickly shifts tonight and one thing that that is a problem right up front is that they're guest. Robbie williams their special musical guests has cancelled at the last second. And rebecca is showing some curves because she's never hosted this before. It was always rupert before. And so she's trying to play comb. she's trying to say. Oh it's no big deal. It's fine and of course it's not really fine but we'll find that out later So so before we really launch into it.

Apparently the characters go back even further than that because they had been fans for so long and when they brought in bill lawrence to help craft it into a sitcom into a show. And you know. He created scrubs. He co created cougar. Town and amid that alone said to me okay. They're they're not just doing a fish out of water the not just doing silly. Oh it's an britain. They're going to go for something a little deeper they're gonna go for humans having grown up relationships and friendships and it's as much as i enjoyed those shows. This might be even better. Well i mean when you talk about it came at the right time i actually did not watch it when it first landed because i thought it's a sports thing not i know it was more than a sports thing but i thought it's for sure dude thing like dudes talking about sports and life like together and one guy i had a little bit of a A worry when.
