Open iTunes to preview or buy TV programmes.
Third series of the Scottish BAFTA nominated comedy sketch show created by writer performers Iain Connell and Robert Florence. Regular characters such as Jolly Boy John and ‘quality polis’ McGregor & Toshan are joined by even more weird and wonderful characters as the net is cast ever wider to expose the comic goings on in this, thankfully fictitious, Scottish town.
|1||VideoEpisode 1||In episode one we pop into a trendy coffee shop which has an original way of serving a cappuccino; the proprietor of a business specialising in wooden pallets gives us his idea of a sophisticated sales pitch in a specially made TV ad.; and a high street boutique delivers questionable sartorial advice to a confused punter. One of Burnistoun's youngest inhabitants escapes punishment for being late for school thanks to an inventive note from his dad, while a lecturer from Burnistoun University instructs us in the proper snide looks for different occasions. And while one Burnistoun punter walks round the world another doesn't even make it across town because of his argumentative satnav. Returning characters include 'quality polis' McGregor and Toshan who misuse a breathalyser, Jolly Boy John with another You Tube style clip from his bedroom and pals Peter and Scott fighting over Twitter. 'Burnistoun' stars Iain Connell and Robert Florence with Louise Stewart, Richard Rankin, Gerry McLaughlin and Kirsty Strain.||28:16||£1.89||View in iTunes|
|2||VideoEpisode 2||The second episode of the Scottish BAFTA-nominated comedy sketch show, written and performed by comedy duo Iain Connell and Robert Florence, lifts the lid off more weird goings on in the fictitious town of 'Burnistoun'. This week the local cake shop suffers a decline in sales when a rogue cake decorator is let loose; two punters are unimpressed with the clientele in their local café; and the Job Centre has a new line in compulsory niceness. All is not well in Burnistoun's leafy suburbs when a resident struggles to put out the correct colour of wheelie bin, while for another hapless householder the task of signing for a parcel has unexpected complications. TV historian Robert Clach tells us about Burnistoun's famous and very violent clan chief and the unveiling of a statue to Burnistoun's Greatest Man unexpectedly looks to the future not the past. Also this week two characters from the previous series make welcome returns - Burnistoun's failed entrepreneur, Alex Ciderson, presents a new action game for kids while local furniture retailer, James Jumpstyle, demonstrates a disastrous line in home deliveries. 'Burnistoun' stars Iain Connell and Robert Florence with Louise Stewart, Richard Rankin, Gerry McLaughlin and Kirsty Strain.||28:02||£1.89||View in iTunes|
|3||VideoEpisode 3||Episode three in this third series of Iain Connell and Robert Florence's hit comedy sketch show opens with an address by the Prime Minister which carries genuine shock value. There follow plenty of appearances by regular 'Burnistoun' characters, however, to prove we haven't strayed too far from the eponymous darkly comic town. Misguided entrepreneur, Alex Ciderson, invents a new way of packaging beer; 'quality polis' McGregor and Toshan gatecrash a party; while pals Peter and Scott find they have a different approach to shaving a certain part of their anatomy. The Kilty Club's Herry McLoudery massacres another Scots song, and in another of his home videos Jolly Boy John displays some unusual ways with pakora. An incompetent taxidermist manages to make rather more than just a pigs ear out of a stuffed dog, thus enraging one pet-loving Burnistoun resident, while another is driven to distraction by his new talking alarm clock which won't shut up. Conversely regulars in a Burnistoun pub are rendered speechless by the appearance of a drinking pal's new girlfriend. 'Burnistoun' is written by and stars Iain Connell and Robert Florence. Also appearing are Louise Stewart, Richard Rankin, Gerry McLaughlin and Kirsty Strain.||27:59||£1.89||View in iTunes|
|4||VideoEpisode 4||Series three of the Scottish BAFTA nominated comedy series by writer performers Iain Connell and Robert Florence continues to take the lid off life in the fictitious town of 'Burnistoun'. This week a local priest is revealed to have a direct line to God but simply uses it to have daft banter with the Almighty. A novel interactive mobile phone app gets tested on the streets of Burnistoun with unintended consequences for its proprietor, while eating a pizza proves problematic for a Burnistoun man out on a date. We get a world premier of the instructional DVD 'How to Punch A Guy', while two pals watching a horror film have an argument about which of them can do the best gasp of shock. Meanwhile two brothers clearing out the family loft following the death of their father make a discovery that gives them a real headache, literally! Making a welcome return to the series this week is Burnistoun's self-styled 'favourite son' the ageing ex-athlete Biscuity Boyle who causes havoc among the puppets on the miniature set of a Wallace-and-Gromit-type clay animation TV show. Burnistoun stars Iain Connell and Robert Florence with Louise Stewart, Richard Rankin, Gerry McLaughlin and Kirsty Strain.||27:56||£1.89||View in iTunes|
|5||VideoEpisode 5||Episode five in the third series of the comedy sketch show written and performed by Iain Connell and Robert Florence and set in the entirely fictional - yet eerily familiar - town of 'Burnistoun'. This week the 'quality polis' team of McGregor and Toshan attend a football match and cause the very riot they were there to prevent. Pals Peter and Scott have a disagreement over what is, and is not, acceptable footwear for the pub. And Jolly Boy John has fun with some pet turtles in his latest home video. Two aggressive car salesmen foist a top of the range motor on a reluctant passer-by while a paranoid punter sees secret government plots in fish suppers. The Burnistoun Film Awards are disrupted by some locals who have their eyes on the red carpet while another aspiring gangster is given his first chance at demanding money with menaces but can't quite get the menacing bit right. A sadistic stage performer forces an embarrassed member of the audience to dance for him and the Burnistoun Time Capsule receives some unusual contributions. 'Burnistoun' stars its writers Iain Connell and Robert Florence and features Louise Stewart, Richard Rankin, Gerry McLaughlin and Kirsty Strain.||28:11||£1.89||View in iTunes|
|6||VideoEpisode 6||Last episode in the current run of the Scottish BAFTA nominated comedy series by writer performers Iain Connell and Robert Florence. This week in the fictional town of 'Burnistoun' the Legend of King Arthur springs to life when a Burnistoun man pulls the magic sword, Excalibur, out of the pavement. Meanwhile two punters enjoying a lock-in at the pub find their enjoyment eerily curtailed by the arrival of the pub's ghost, the Wee Baldy Man. Identical twins Dom and Tom Thoms allow us a peek into their lives where their tendency to finish each other's sentences isn't helped by the fact they are often talking at cross purposes. Regular characters McGregor and Toshan, the self-styled 'quality polis' team, finally get their come-uppance at a disciplinary interview with their boss while Burnistoun's failed entrepreneur, Alex Ciderson, reveals how a family tragedy led to his latest misguided invention. Finally, one of Burnistoun's local football teams, realising it has uglier fans than its rival, decides to sign some good looking foreign fans to improve the look of the terraces. 'Burnistoun' is written by and stars Iain Connell and Robert Florence and features Louise Stewart, Richard Rankin, Gerry McLaughlin and Kirsty Strain.||27:51||£1.89||View in iTunes|
