There are two very different versions of z-list celebrity life on display, as Joe schmoozes at awards dinners and backstage after gigs (while offering everyone a picture), but Darren struggles through the glare of reflected fame to go and see a movie... or even get a haircut.
The lads dissect the art of small talk, Darren makes a Christmas decoration expedition, and they have (inevitably, some argue) given in to temptation and recorded a novelty single.
Barry Keoghan's recent success has Darren questioning if Joe's currently unrequited friendship with Barry is a case of life imitating art, and if Joe might just be a bit dull. Joe counters the suggestion with a story about the daring and haphazard moving of a giant outdoor photo, in what was ultimately an act of (yet more) unrequited friendship. And the lads explore the world of cryptozoology, from the Loch Ness Monster to Bigfoot, and even an Irish beast that may live among us.
