Mostly pasta!

I just wonder who thinks of all this. Umbilical Sushi was the best so far!

Technically cannibalism, although I would expect no less from the wacky Sue. Initially I thought it was supposed to be intestines. Discovering it was supposed to be umbilical cord was much worse... so, for the "ew" factor - bravo! 10 points!

haha fantastic moment just cause you know Guy's eating something really horrible. I thought it was going to be sheep's intestine or something...I'm not sure which is worse.

It's even more worrying that people actually do eat umbilical cords in real life. I read it in a magazine ages ago. Though the woman in that story actually fried it before she ate it so that's not so bad I guess...

And hey, there's nout wrong with Sheeps intestines! Thats whats in haggis yum yum =D

I was pretty appalled by this, but the scene was hilarious.

Oh my god, series 2 finished like an hour ago. Jonathon, can you say anything more on the, uh, secret series 2 episode?!

Andrea said...

I could not believe THAT ending... How cruel. Hope the rumour of x-mas special is true.

Apparently eating one's own placenta after birth reduces the risk of post-natal depression...

Anyway... yes.. THAT ending. Yikes. Poetic and far, far from the usual GW remit. Please don't go and do an 'ER' angst on us poor, unsuspecting fans...

Gizmo - have you seen a placenta...*yikes* Umbilical cord looks nicer :-))

Well there will definitely be a Christmas Special 9th Episode.
Pippa Haywood and The British Sitcom Guide have confirmed this, BUT:

MAC CANT DIE!!! He's the nicest character in the whole show! A proper hero too!
He mustn't die!

But what he must do is come back at Christmas to claim his 'Lady Caroline' for the final time - it’s the only proper way to end the show!

Andrea said...

My theory... Sue fiddled with the test results.
Mac did not fade away in the last shot on the motorbike. He will be back.
Car wont stay with Guy when she hears about Mac being ill - obviously he isn't but we don't know that-yet.
All the guys in the campervan-thingy over the cliff are going to be fine and Joanna will bond with Martin and get it together with Stratham. But what about Karen? Is she dead? Was the police there for her? Is Sue sacked?
Questions questions questions....

I'm afraid I can't possibly say!

Andrea said...

Jonathan - that wasn't really meant as questions to you - I know you can't say - just thoughts I had - :-)

JPG said...

No probs.

pleaseeeeeee do a series 3!! and please dont kill off mac! If you do a series 3 you cant kill off mac! It won't be the same without Jrt!

* Gizmo - have you seen a placenta...*yikes* Umbilical cord looks nicer :-)) *

Fried up, placenta looks like a steak... or a blood pudding. Well, it is, after all!

* MAC CANT DIE!!! He's the nicest character in the whole show! A proper hero too! He mustn't die! *

Actually, heroes often do- that's what makes them heroes! The cathartic suffering through which they are purified for passing up into a higher state of being... Mind you, 'Serenity' had a new twist on the idea: "Heroes get other people killed". Hmmm... I wrote an ever such long theory on IMDB about all this. I could put the Mac bit on here if it would amuse anyone!

Mind you, about a third series... 'Scrubs' is in season 8- 9 (?) now, and starting to look tired, really tired. Short and sweet sometimes works much, much better. Heh, coming from someone short and suitably saccherine. :)
