Ok so I haven't watched this from here but I have seen the Plebs series on t.v. The life of 2 guys & a house slave, from work to partying & the mayhem that they cause. If you've never watched it just give an episode a go & before you know it your be laughing at the stupid things that they do.

Two star knockdown as season one that i originally purchased has disappeared since the last Google play movies app update I've paid for season one and i want it back please season one was incorporated into one show header and season one that i had bought was initially transferred over to this show header but now season one has disappeared since the last Google play movies app update I've paid for season one and i want it back as it's straightforward theft removing what i have already paid for once to own or is there an issue or error with season one.

Always makes me laugh and cheers me up on a bad day, loveable and hilarious characters (Especially Grumio). One of the best modern British TV comedies, up on the top alongside The Inbetweeners and Friday Night Dinner.
