Saisons & épisodes Les résumés de tous les épisodes de The Grumpy Guide To

S02E01 Class 00/00/0000 A grumpy perspective on aspects of modern life. According to the contributors the class system is now more complicated than ever: the toffs have run out of money, the middle class runs the country, footballers are royalty, and everyone claims to be working class because it's the only class with street cred. One way or another it seems the class system is alive and well.
S02E02 Work 00/00/0000 A grumpy perspective on aspects of modern life. The world of work involves spending most of your life in places you can't bear, with people you can't stand, doing stuff that doesn't matter. A host of contributors examine the whole job process, from writing the dreaded CV to deciphering meaningless management speak. Plus tips on throwing a sickie when it all gets a bit too much.
S02E03 Teenagers 00/00/0000 A grumpy perspective on aspects of modern life. For many, teenagers can be a huge pain, lounging around, often in your house, without proper jobs, but apparently not able to do anything much at all except eat pizza and drink beer. They also seem unable to talk to anyone over the age of around 20. This romp through the world of 'yoof' gives tips on how to make contact with this alien life force and lets rips on those things about today's youngsters that really get the Grumpy goat.
S02E04 Money 00/00/0000 A grumpy perspective on aspects of modern life. For many, teenagers can be a huge pain, lounging around, often in your house, without proper jobs, but apparently not able to do anything much at all except eat pizza and drink beer. They also seem unable to talk to anyone over the age of around 20. This romp through the world of 'yoof' gives tips on how to make contact with this alien life force and lets rips on those things about today's youngsters that really get the Grumpy goat.
S02E05 Romance 00/00/0000 A grumpy look at romance. For those newly in love, the dating game may be a wonderful thing, but for the rest of us just the word romance alone sets us off. It could be that the process of finding someone nice to date is so hideous and difficult that once two people find each other they stick together like glue.
S02E06 Politics 00/00/0000 Britain's grumpiest talking heads share their woes about politics. Politicians sometimes feel like a waste of oxygen: high on promise, low on delivery. If they're not spinning or being economical with the truth, they're up to some hanky panky with their diary secretary. This romp through some of the juiciest scandals and silliest examples of spin will at least serve as a reminder that politicians are extremely human.
S00E01 Christmas 00/00/0000 Meet the new breed of grumpies: a bit younger but no less embittered. With tales of seasonal Tourette's, inappropriate present-buying and the eating of reindeer, here is the latest in a long line of celebrities with hilarious tales of festive humbug. Ozzy Osbourne considers himself lucky to have missed the whole thing one year following a horrific quad bike injury; Huey Morgan would rather throw burning conifers off the roof; John Thomson likes confusing his parents by sending them anonymous cards; Neil Morrissey may elect to spend the time locked away in the loo with a portable TV, a few bottles of wine and a turkey sandwich; and Ronni Ancona thinks sprouts are the grapes of the devil. Why? Because it's Christmas again. Have a very grumpy Christmas everyone.
S00E02 The Eighties 00/00/0000 A cross-section of Grumps (old and young...ish) wax irritable about the decade that style, taste and decency forgot. These ten years that saw the rise of rampant consumerism, the Wicked Witch of Westminster, shoulder pads and rubbish hair were a difficult time for those of a disgruntled disposition, so expect their Filofaxes of fury to be positively bulging with caustic memos.
S00E03 School Days 00/00/0000 School days are billed as the best days of your life but were more like a prison sentence for our grumpies. We all remember the sadistic games teacher, or the unique boredom of double maths on a Monday morning. But if you are of the grumpy persuasion then School Day horrors seem to have particular resonance. Mark Radcliffe thought his school days a mix of sadism and insanity, Ronni Ancona thought her school worse than a Russian gulag, Huey Morgan was almost choked by one teacher and Mark Steel remembers experiencing the worst fart in history. Neil Morrissey pretended to be the class psycho, Shappi Khorsandi once stole Neil Kinnock's daughter's school report, whilst Al Murray remembers the horrors of being at the back with the fat kid in PE.
S00E04 New Year 00/00/0000 Ronni Ancona will moan that your Jamie Oliver-inspired turkey and cranberry sauce is “basically chicken with jam”, Al Murray will tell you to “go away” when you talk to him about the joy of giving (he actually uses stronger language but I’m starting my New Year’s resolution a few days early) and Penny Smith will moan that it’s all “sentimental claptrap”. Donna McPhail will terrify your dog by declaring Christmas is “worse than a puppy because you can’t put it in a sack and drown it.” And Ozzy Osbourne will consider getting back on his quad bike to avoid the whole thing for a second time. It’s “just b******s,” he says. Oh damn, there goes my resolution already.
