Or a bowl of broth. Hence the name "brothel".

Oh Lou you have missed out in life....

It's all plush, ya knaa, red fittings and formica on the table tops. And there's a fella in the corner playing the piano with his sleeves rolled up. And all the birds have them whispy corsets on and stockings with the lines up the back. Phwaorr...

Not so much 'Dark Side' but bad side... the fact the lads thought it was perfectly ok to cheat by going to the brothel and looking for someone.. Bomber was meant to be a family man wasnt he... all of his pay just about going back home every week.. With Oz it isnt as surprising because he obviously isnt mad on Marjorie anymore..

In those days( God , get me, I sound ancient!) anyway, kids didn't quite know as much as they do now and I remember thinking to myself " I don't think I'd like to do that for a job' I asked my mom what they were doing and she said " oh they just sit with the men and have a drink and a meal"
Although it was probably toned down even then. I can't compare as I have never been to a brothel!!!!!!

I'm starting to get those awkward questions from my kids, Lou. My eldest seems to want to watch what his friends have been talking about at school. Last week he wanted to borrow my 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' dvds - and me thinking yeah it's suitable. The following day he asks me strange questions that leads me to say: "Don't know, ask your Mam!" I reckon he knew, he just wanted to embarrass me.

You think that's embarrassing. Wait until you have to ask kids about sex stuff because they know more about it than you do.

I agree. Mobile phones will be to blame there. God knows what they might be watching in the playgrounds. It's disgusting, especially when they don't send us the link.

Watched a programme I recorded off channel 4 today called The Mega Brothel, about the legalised chain of Paradise mega brothels in Germany.
Don't know if any of you lot watched it but let's just say Bomber and Oz would have a field day.

I always thought that Moxey came across a bit sinister and dark in 'Love & Other Four Letter Words'.

It's the bit where Wayne's getting cleaned up and he describes to him how Christa cleaned him up with her hanky after Oz chucked him out of the hut. Moxey replies something like, "She used her tongue".

Almost as if he had a hidden past.

Yes, that was creepy ! Moxey's f****d up childhood may have had a lot to do with this, "Been on me own since I was about three." It certainly showed us a side of our Mox that thankfully, we never saw again. Hidden depths ? Hidden something ! :twisted:

Not really a darker side but one that really rankles for me is the class division and snobbery outlined in S2. Many of us can fully understand Nev when he said he felt more at home in Germany. And we all cheered when Oz shagged Lady Chatterley oops I mean Mrs Chatterley. Well I declare as they say in the trade!
