Title Guest star(s) Original broadcast date
1x1 "Beginnings" Bill Bailey as Bilbo Bagshot
James Lance as Richard
Peter Serafinowicz as Duane Benzie
Anna Wilson-Jones as Sarah
September 24 1999
Daisy Steiner and Tim Bisley meet in a small cafe and bond over their mutual search for accommodation (he's been kicked out by girlfriend Sarah, she's a squatter desperate to escape her down-and-out acquaintances), and gradually form a friendship. Just when all seems lost, they stumble upon what seems to be a perfect place - trouble is, it's listed as being for a 'professional couple' only. Thus begins a complicated plan involving faked photos and memorising every significant (and not-so-significant) fact about each other to pass themselves off as a long term couple in order to fool Marsha Klein, their prospective landlady. To their mutual surprise, it works. 
1x2 "Gatherings" James Lance as Richard
Anna Wilson-Jones as Sarah
October 1 1999
To avoid doing any actual work, freshly unpacked Daisy plans a housewarming party - something to make their home the "new hub of North London." Unfortunately, all of Tim's friends are busy attending skateboarding meets or sci-fi conventions (except for Mike Watt, present to provide door security), and Daisy's media contacts extend about as far as the paperboy (except for Twist Morgan, present to provide fashion commentary), so there's hardly any guests (except for Marsha, present to consume alcohol, and Brian Topp, present to provide artistic critique of Daisy's baco-foil decorations). Brian discovers Daisy and Tim are not really dating after they slip up by mentioning they have separate rooms. Meanwhile, Marsha's daughter Amber is throwing her own party in conflict to the housewarming party (such that it is one). The episode ends with an homage to Close Encounters of the Third Kind as Tim, Mike, Daisy, Twist, and Brian decide to crash Amber's more successful party. 
1x3 "Art" Paul Kaye as Hoover
Claire Rushbrook as Yolanda
David Walliams as Vulva
October 8 1999
After accepting some cheap speed from some violently friendly Scottish blokes, Tim has spent all night fighting zombies (or, more accurately, hallucinating while playing Resident Evil 2) and Mike has somehow managed to get to Sheffield on the Tube. Daisy has a job interview at a classy women's magazine and Brian has an invitation to a new art show by Vulva, his former partner and non-gender-specific-ex-chaste-heterosexual-lover. This causes much angst and feelings of inferiority all around. "Girl Power!" fails to impress the magazine editors, Brian's much-practiced air of indifference fails to impress Vulva, and Tim's Twiglets allergy and hallucinations of zombies leads to Vulva getting a much-deserved punch in the face. The episode concludes with Daisy's idea for performance art, a parody of Bruce Nauman's work "Clown Torture", which leads Tim to remark that it's obviously harder than it looks. 
1x4 "Battles" Richenda Carey as Dog pound clerk
Paul Putner as Paintballer
Peter Serafinowicz as Duane Benzie
Anna Wilson-Jones as Sarah
October 15 1999
After getting dumped by her boyfriend Richard, Daisy decides to cheer herself up by getting a dog. Having suffered a fear of dogs since childhood, Tim is not pleased by this. As Daisy bonds with an interesting little dog she calls Colin (named after the pet box she had as a child), Tim and Mike go paintballing, and encounter Tim's arch-nemesis, Duane Benzie, the man who stole Tim's girlfriend. By the end of the episode, Mike will have made the (sort-of) ultimate sacrifice, Tim will have had his revenge, and Brian will have imparted the tragic, yet artistically interesting, tale of his own dog's horrible death. 
1x5 "Chaos" Bill Bailey as Bilbo Bagshot
Charles Dale as Security Guard
October 22 1999
Daisy is strongly bonding with new dog Colin, much to Tim's displeasure. Forced to take Colin out on a walk in an effort to bond with him, Tim is rather alarmed when Colin disappears after Tim challenges aliens to abduct him. When Daisy won't speak to him, and when he receives an anonymous tip-off revealing Colin's location - in the hands of a ruthless, sinister cosmetics testing vivisectionist - he plans a daring rescue attempt in order to redeem himself. Will they succeed? Will a psychotic Marxist dog reveal itself? And more importantly - will Tim let Mike's callsign be Han Solo

Michael Smiley as Tyres O'Flaherty
October 29 1999
Tim's bicycle courier friend Tyres pops round for a cup of tea and decides to takes the gang clubbing, forcing Brian to relive a terrible event in his past (where a spilled drink during Dexys Midnight Runners' Come On Eileen had disastrous results). Mike, thrown out of the Rough Ramblers following a disastrous eskimo roll (which was more a case of 'rolling right Inuit'), rediscovers his manhood with the help of some ecstasy and a remix of the The A-Team theme. And Tim and Daisy have their eyes opened. 
1x7 "Ends" Simon Kunz as TA Officer
Anna Wilson-Jones as Sarah
November 5 1999
Tim is ecstatic when his ex-girlfriend Sarah decides she wants him back; Daisy is less so, causing much tension around the flat. Mike has an interview at the Territorial Army to determine whether he should be allowed back in following the 'Eurodisney Incident'. Following a heated argument, Daisy finally manages to bash out a few articles, and Tim finally realises the right path for him. And Brian summons the courage to ask Twist out on a date which, against all expectations, actually goes quite well.

After receiving an injection of money following the sale of her articles, Daisy returns from her holiday in Asia, but finds it hard to settle back into the mundaneness of her normal life after her adventure. Tim has been struggling with his issues with George Lucas and The Phantom Menace (which saw him ceremonially burn his Star Wars merchandise), and after being chucked out of home for shooting his cat up the rear end, Mike has been sleeping in Daisy's room, transforming its decor into a tribute to Apocalypse Now. Things are not normal, and sinister black-suited Agents following Daisy make things even more surreal.

Daisy's entire experience in the kitchen mirrors McMurphy's experiences in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Meanwhile, Brian struggles to prepare an artistic installation at a trendy gallery.

Both Tim and Mike must enlist Tyres in a daring attempt to recover the item before it is uncovered, but discover that they have an unexpected ally in Knox's beautiful assistant, Sophie.
