Things that make you go hmmm

Noticed any 'Cock Up's' filming mistakes, continuity errors or something else?

Two things that got me thinking whilst watching 'Marjorie Doesn't Live Here Anymore' were;

1. Why did Oz have Barry and Moxey down to stay with him when they went back to Newcastle? A couple of times Oz makes it clear he finds them boring, in Series 1 when he's trying to get Bomber and Neville to go to the curry house he says to Dennis, "I don't wanna be stuck with Barry and Moxey all neet.", then in the last episode of Series 1 whilst he tries to get people to stay in Germany with him he asks Barry and Moxey last by saying, "D'you not see how desperate I am asking you.", then in Series 2 he makes them get in the same car to Gibraltar so all the boring bastards are in the same car. So it makes me think why would he invite them to stay with him? Surely someone like Oz would have invited Bomber or even Wayne and sent the other two to Dennis and Neville?

2. As much as it makes me laugh I doubt Oz would go around wearing pants with the bottom of the arse cut out, I know he's not the most image conscious of people but would he really go around in pants that have the bottom of his arse hanging out?

I think the simple explanation is he didnt invite them - he was ordered to take them by Den. I imagine the gaffer divvied out who should stay with who in Newcastle (save arguing).

But yeah Oz does jump allegiance a bit. Always seemed to me he despised Wayne but enjoyed Moxey's company, so why shove him in with Barry in the Spain car trip indeed? And in the 4th series he becomes Barry's roommate and best friend!

Stands to reason as well - Moxey is a bit scurvy and Barry is dull as ditchwater - neither of them would be overly welcome at Nev's (look what happened when Barry did end up there!) or Den's sister's. I think Den figured Marjorie would be the one who would put up with them best - they're saints compared to Oz!

Just watching The Alien from last night and there is a glaring omssion re: Weather. Earlier on in the episode Moxey and Wayne are complaining about the cold and the wet, yet later on after they discover Herr Grunwald's choice of 'Sunday Leisure Activity' they are sat outside enjoying a nice cold beer!

In Last Rites Moxey asks Oz where are they going to store the porn videos, to which Oz says they'll just keep them in the hut. Barry also says it would be very risky, but a minute later Oz is seen having trouble with them falling out of his locker. Did he not tell the others he already had them?

Its also obvious that the scenes at Normas were filmed last, if not some of the final scenes, so maybe these were some of the final scenes filmed....

I'm sure Oz lived in a flat of some sort which would have had 2 bedrooms at best. One would be for him and Marjorie the other for Rod. Moxey and Barry would have to kip in the living room which had nee space what so ever. However Dennis was staying with his sister in a 3 bedroom semi where Norma had a room, Den would have had a room and there was another room where his 2 kids would have slept and would have had separate beds. So the simple fact is Den should have took 2 back to stop at Normas and Oz took one back to kip on the couch.

Yes but, I now know that Vera was planning to be in Series 2, and would have starred in these scenes, and it wouldn't have been Normas house, although it could have been the same set. Anyway, I think I'm just talking a load of bollocks here like.

Aye, but Bomber's a big lad. Needs a big bed.

Besides, remember that it was Barry that made up the rota, so everybody was bound to have got what nobody wanted

Ah! Very good shout! This deepens it even further - why the hell would Barry choose to stay with Oz and not Nev or Dennis?! :shock:
