Series 5 of Not Going Out aired back in April and May of 2012. There were 6 episodes and the show was averaging about 5 million viewers each week. That's averages about 19% of the watching public. Lee Mack stars as a guy called Lee. Sally Bretton is Lucy, she owns the flat that Lee sponges in. Tim Vine is Tim and Katy Wix is Daisy. It's pretty much a joke driven sitcom and there are plenty of jokes. I laughed at a bunch of them. The plots are pretty standard stuff with Lee getting in a pickle and trying to fix things up afterward.
In the first episode Tim joins a band and enters a Battle Of The Bands Contest. Lee's annoying shifty dad shows up to ruin the weekend in the second episode. His dad is a big ass and it's not surprising that Lee doesn't like to see him. The actor that plays Lee's Dad, Bobby Ball, is really great in the role. A camping trip turns into a nightmare when the car breaks down in the woods. Of course none of them are smart enough to have planed for that sort of thing.
Lee gets a sports massage from a prostitute that Tim sends around. That's her with Tim and Lee. How they got there is pretty dumb. This is the last series for Tim Vine, he left the show for some reason, and I miss his character. Lucy is encouraging men to check themselves for lumps in the 5th episode and finally heavy drinking leaves Lucy and Lee naked in her bed in the last episode. Neither can remember what happened.
All in all a good bunch of stories and lots of laughs. If you look you can find some of the episodes on YouTube.
