Everybody’s talking about…. #This Is England


As the eagerly anticipated series returns this evening, The Guardian has speculated what future episodes of the show could hold in store.

This is England 2000, for example:

Woody, terminally disappointed by the special episode of Blackadder shown at the Millenium Dome, weeps alone in a bath. Elsewhere: Shaun, terrified of the impact that the Millenium bug might have on his fledging cybergoth e-shop, ceremoniously throws his Dell desktop two-handed into the sea.
