 Totally, and will be even more amazing and special knowing the difficulties the cast and production faced, and are facing, during filming for this series. It is so good to see teaser clips when filming hasn't even completed yet. Appreciate Sky keeping our spirits up!

yayJust renewed my Sky subscription (I was offered a really good deal) so can record it! Wish series 2 was out on video.

This show has a life of its own. My daughter watched the series one DVD ages and ages ago. Loved it, when series 2 started she used NOW TV for everyone to watch. My grandson became a huge fan. When he went back to uni (eventually) he got a NOW tv pass to watch series 2 with his flatmates and they ended up having Brassic watch parties with others in their class.

October's not that far away, something to look forward to highfive

Excellent news Ellie! I love how you've got your family into it as well!

Indeed, October is not toooo far away, but it still feels too early to put up a forum countdown... or is it? Can't wait for the new series! I am very intrigued where the Vinnie Erin Dylan storyline will go next...

P.s As we've been discussing in the forum chatbox, Brassic series 4 has also been commissioned - so that's more good news! I recall an interview with either Danny B or Joe G where they said Sky were happy to keep on making it series 4, 5 and more as long as the same quality and storylines are there!

My grandson came round the other day, offered to do some work in the garden then very casually asked when Brassic 3 was due to start!

We're having nights with popcorn and Irish coffee  - we were talking family and I mentioned my mam's Irish coffee at Christmas, more Irish than coffee, and to my horror he didn't know what it was. We watched Ruth Negga making a version on YouTube (hilarious but roughly the same coffee/whiskey ratio as my mam).

Less than a month to go now Ellie!

Is it time for a new forum countdown? cool

Irish coffee and popcorn sound like a great accompaniment to Brassic. And of course Ruth Negga appeared with Joe Gilgun in Preacher so there is a link to Brassic there tangentially 

Cor... you made me work hard to get back on topic!

100% agree with every word of this insightful Brassic 3 review, it IS the best series yet!

TV Recommendation: Brassic

Teddy Webb: The third season of the wild comedy-drama Brassic has recently aired, and despite its fairly prominent marketing by its creators at Sky, I’d still argue the show is incredibly underrated. Brassic is a whirlwind of a comedy series, carefully balancing an absurdist style of humour with a social realist undercurrent that makes for a properly unpredictable show. On top of this, Brassic is also a brilliant example of how to represent diversity in television without veering into the patronising territory of the Very Special Episode.

 

Brassic follows a ragtag group of small-time criminals trying to pull of heists and capers in which anything that can go wrong will go wrong. From antique furniture heists in Season 2 to the series of misfortunes that led the gang to try and offer a boa constrictor as a ransom payment this season, the scheme-of-the-week format of the show has audiences laughing along with the thieves they’re rooting for, almost in line with legends of Robin Hood. The core cast of the show are a genuinely sweet portrayal of male friendship, in which they can rip into each other as often as any band of brothers on telly without resorting to the “locker room banter” or casual bigotry you might see in a 2000s bro comedy. Even during their arguments, like leading man Vinnie’s fight with wise-cracking Tommo over the latter trying to smuggle drugs to sell on an outing that Vinnie’s young son unexpectedly tagged along for, there’s so much compassion between the characters.

 

Brassic definitely falls into the satire category, with the way it ridicules classic heist plots by filling them with absurd side characters acting as obstacles, or having the cast steal beehives instead of diamonds, but it never uses that satirical angle as an excuse to punch down. As a viewer, it’s hard not to extend them the same love. It’s a very human portrayal, in which almost every episode features characters behaving in selfish ways while simultaneously putting their necks on the line for each other.

 

The protagonist of the show, Vinnie, is perhaps the best example of subtle representation weaving perfectly in with the tone of the show. Inspired by the real-life experiences of actor and show co-creator Joe Gilgun, Vinnie has struggled with his bipolar disorder since Brassic’s first season. The discussions of his mental health are often intercut with brash sex jokes from his hapless therapist, in accordance with the show’s comedic style, but the subplot adds a dark underpinning to the character’s impulsive schemes and behaviours, which can now be read as a symptom of mania in a man who’s not being truly supported.

 

Once again, Vinnie’s bipolar doesn’t turn the show into something it’s not with heavy handed dialogue or simple linear arcs of healing. Instead, its undercurrents blend into the character’s personality and mannerisms, in a way that I think only someone with close personal experience with the condition could effectively write. There’s a personal level of honesty in the storyline, and this third season is the strongest yet at developing it amongst amongst all the farce we expect.
