Trivia

Goofs

When Eddie falls through the ceiling playing the piano, it's very obvious from the back that it's a dummy because it wobbles around but is stuck to the seat. See more »

Better than the last episode, but not as good as the first two episodes in the debut season of "Bottom"

Plot In A Paragraph: After inheriting from his recently deceased Auntie Olga £600.00. Richie and Eddie heads off down the funfair, where Richie's wallet gets stolen, and Richie learns from a fortune-teller that he is going to die in 3 nights. Eddie and Richie set out to prevent Richie's fate and Richie is visited by the Grim Repear who sounds suspiciously like Eddie

Some parts of this episode made me smile and chuckle, but sadly there was no laugh out loud moments, like what was in the first two episodes.
