Bugbears

Post by Merle » Mon Apr 28, 2014 5:12 pm

Apologies if this topic has been posted elsewhere, I had a scan through but found nothing.

There are a few things in AP that don't quite add up for me, and they always me annoy me each time I see them.

For a kick off:

Dennis and Neville get the hump with Oz because his car broke down causing them to end up in the hut.
But as Wayne is in there too, surely they would have ended up in the hut anyway, even if they hadn't broken down.
More importantly, Bomber is in there, and he has been on site for ages (sharing with just one other bloke by the looks of it, but that is a different topic), so the breakdown had no impact at all. Surely Oz would have mentioned that?

When Bomber says he is leaving as he has a "nice job lined up" in Bristol.
Dennis tells Nev that he will steam in there on Monday.
Surely as Nev was totally down in the dumps and desperate, he would have asked Dennis could he not go and have a word right now rather than wait over the weekend. After all, Herr Pfister was right there.

Anymore?

One that's always got me is the lads reaction to the hut being painted Yellow...
If they were all so against it then why did 3 of them actually choose it as their
Second choice. Surely they'd all pick something other than Yellow as 2nd choice
if they Were that much against it... Plenty of colours to choose from like

A couple more that sprung to mind on my drive home.

After Fraser has slashed Vicky's clothes, stolen her passport and smashed a few things up/wrote on the mirror etc, Oz flips from absolutely fuming to being quite happy in a matter of seconds, just because he finds out that Dennis has some of his money. Would that really appease him that much?

Same episode, related subject: Fraser turns up on the boat but Vicky hardly looks bothered or upset to to see him and surely Oz would have been ready to rip is head off at the first sight of him. Especially with a belly full of wedding champagne.

Also with that, strange that seven first choice colours were all different and three seconds were yellow without a first choice being picked again.

On the paint thing, given the palaver they went to (I... as returning officer...) to choose a colour why did they then just grab the tins without checking the colour til they got back to the hut?!

Why didn't Brenda have a go at the lads about Nev's tattoo when they all met up in Newcastle? After all, she did blame them.

For me, I dont understand why Hazel takes the hump when Barry tells her he is not a payroll robber, I mean come on, she,s know him for how long and she thinks he might be a villain. He should have gave her a slap.

I think deep down she knew Barry was dull, but she got off on the excitement that he might be a mastermind payroll robber.

I'd say Vicki was concerned by Ally's surprise appearance, she says "Whats he doing here?" but I reckon she knew he wouldn't do anything in front of an audience.

Going back to Oz not going mental when seeing Ally.
The externals were shot in Spain first, which included Wayne, could their have been rewrites for the internals? It could be that the original scenes may not have made sense without Wayne being there, hence Oz's change from lunatic to calm.

was gonna say something similar - and i always thought the oz vicky thing was made up after garys death, and obviously the filming dates for the boat shots were prior.

I think its obvious and known that rewrites could be the reason for the mix up in moods.
I wonder if Alreetpal can pull some words from the novel?

This is a widely held belief but does anyone know for certain that it is the case? I've always had one problem with the idea that the Oz/Vicky relationship was meant to be Wayne/Vicky - that scene when they're building the pool and Vicky starts talking to Oz about what he's going to do when he finishes the job. I always thought that was the start of the Oz/Vicky plot being set up, and Gary would still have been alive when it was shot.
