Mates trying to drag you away from some important work to have a few beers: we’ve all been there.
Created by fabled comedy writers Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, according to Gervais, it is a “coming of age” story that is a cross between The Office and Mad Men.
In 1970s England, three blue-collar friends spend their days joking, drinking, fighting and chasing girls. Freddie wants to leave their working-class world but cool, charismatic Bruce and lovable loser Snork are happy with life the way it is. When Freddie gets a new job as a door-to-door salesman and bumps into his old school sweetheart Julie, the gang are forced to make choices that will change their lives for ever.
