In Series 5, Mark faces the horror of having to face his estranged wife at work and trying to crank up a renewed search for ‘The One’ who will fill the hole in his soul.
Meanwhile, Jeremy has a rude awakening when the money he’s been subsisting on finally runs out and he’s forced to try to find a new source of income. This series sees Mark and Jeremy still sharing the same flat, but both entering their 30s with failed marriages behind them, few prospects, and a sense of impending crisis.
Time is running out for them to sort out their lives. During the series we meet Jeremy’s mother – and see why he’s ended up as he is. Mark goes speed dating, and discovers that money can buy you love. Jeremy and Superhans play a Christian Rock Festival. The flat suffers multiple burglaries and the boys endure their worst ever night out - at the theatre.
