There were actually four series - Lads Army, Bad Lads Army, Officer Class then Extreme.
Language that will date
dating currently problematic on this page, e.g. "Each series had a slightly different format ... The show is now in its fourth series..." & "recently been repeated" amongst other examples. It would be good if somebody could clean this up at some stage, i'm off to bed - cheers.
Avoid statements that will date quickly, except on pages that are regularly updated, such as those that cover current events. Avoid such items as recently and soon (unless their meaning is clear in a storyline), currently (except on rare occasions when it is not redundant), and is soon to be superseded. Instead, use either:
- more precise items (since the start of 2005; during the 1990s; is expected to be superseded by 2008); or
- an as of phrase (as of August 2007), which is a signal to readers of the time-dependence of the statement, and to later editors of the need to update the statement (see As of).
