Talk:Perfect World (TV series)
|This article is of interest to the following WikiProjects:|
As adding a list of episodes, a full cast and helpful information to the article which seems to be mostly opinion has been judged by the idiotbot to be vandalism, I have placed some information here. Someone might like to incorporate it into the article sometime:
- 1. Parents (25.02.2000): Confirmed bachelor Bob is to meet girlfriend Lauren’s parents. He does his best to alienate them which pleases Lauren because to her disgust, every other boyfriend has sucked up to them because they are billionaires. Finding this out, Bob now tries to get back in their good graces while staying friends with Lauren.
- 2. Deadline (03.03.2000): Vaughan has done his share of an important project given to him and Bob a month ago. Bon has not started his share, deciding to leave it to the morning of the day it is due. However, the Marketing Director wants it that morning. Vaughan is mad with fear that he will be sacked with Bob.
- 3. Tarquin (03.10.2000): Bob badly insults a woman who unknown to him is from Head Office and is to judge the staff at Gatehouse on their performance. He invents a twin brother, Tarquin who he intends to blame it all on.
- 4. Charity (17.03.2000): Marketing and Accounts keep raising the stakes on who will raise the most money for Charity Week. After Bob volunteers Vaughan for a Channel swim, Spencer (Accounts) tops this with a raffle for a new car so Bob raffles a home in the country that he does not have.
- 5. Money (24.03.2000): Bob owes Vaughan £200. All his credit cards are maxed out, the bank won’t give him any more money and he has promised Lauren dinner at a very expensive place. Maggie is planning to leave.
- 6. Love (31.03.2000): Vaughan splits up with Briony and is very depressed. Bob tries to make him feel better by telling him that Maggie is in love with him, and Vaughan is on top of the world. Unfortunately Maggie has no interest in Vaughan at all, so Bob has to try and get him and Briony back together again. Lauren leaves Bob.
- 7. Revenge (14.05.2001): Maggie tells a chat room Romeo her secrets, but it turns out to be Bob. In revenge, she gets him drunk and makes it look like she has slept with him, then tells the whole office. Meanwhile the Marketing Director decides to try out homosexuality and pursues Vaughan after Bob tells him that he is gay.
- 8. Family Values (21.05.2001): An important client has come from Russia with his attractive daughter whom Bob fancies, but Maggie says she and Bob are married and that she is expecting. This backfires on her when her family from Bombay come to visit and Bob gets his own back.
- 9. Home (28.05.2001): Bob lives with girlfriends and is homeless after being kicked out by his latest. He boasts that he has a large apartment by the river (Thames). The Marketing Director has been kicked out too so Maggie suggests that he stay with Bob. Bob has to steal Vaughan’s keys to use a large apartment he is looking after for a relative.
- 10. Best Man (04.06.2001): Vaughan is getting married to girlfriend Briony and has chosen someone else to be best man, something Bob intends to remedy.
- 11. Fast Track (11.06.2001): Maggie is keeping a diary for a newspaper article. Meanwhile Bob has a lecherous eye on her new assistant and decides she should become his assistant.
- 12. Graduates (18.06.2001): Bob reveals that he has padded out his CV with a Double First (qualifications) from Oxford University. As the Marketing Director wants to encourage more graduates to join Gatehouse, Maggie suggests that Bob gives a talk to them at his old university, to which the DM agrees.
- 13. Mutiny (25.06.2001): Bob returns 3 weeks late from an Hawaiian holiday to find Vaughan has taken over his job and that he is now a junior. Vaughan who has taken an assertive course turns into a bit of a tyrant but Bob plans to bring him down to earth again and get sent to the upcoming Rio conference in his place.
- Paul Kaye as Bob Slay
- Derren Litten as Vaughan Rogers
- Nina Wadia as Margaret (Maggie) Stone
- Michael Cochrane as Terrence Bentley (Marketing Director)
- Tasha de Vasconcelos as Lauren
- Dariel Pertwee as Briony
- Hannah Storey as Julia
All the many fans and even some of the actors have complained and complained about the show not being released on DVD, despite endless empty promises. The trouble I think is that they may not consider the show suitable for TV. Bob Slay swears but that is not such a big deal on TV nowadays. But he also steals Vaughan's credit card to pay for a date, takes drugs and later drugs a whole room full of students, he is a sex maniac with a bad attitude to women and everybody else, etc. The Marketing Director is a pervert and sexual deviant. Maggie, wanting revenge on Bob gets him drunk, takes his clothes off and then takes a polaroid of "Bob's knob" which she shows all around the office. She also takes off her knickers and puts them in Bob's pocket, while he has passed out from booze. This may be why only 13 episodes were made and no more. I have put both series on youtube in case they do not see the light of day again. (220.127.116.11 (talk) 12:50, 30 November 2013 (UTC))
