It's very funny.

But knackers so does NOT mean 'pants'.

Yeah, someone also mentioned that on the YouTube comments and thought maybe they got confused with knickers which means underpants.

They missed out on some other words that were new to me (not being from the UK). The first time someone said "I want a brief" I was like WTF? I worked out it means lawyer. And it still makes me laugh when they say "legged it".

This video is hilarious! Brings back great memories of living in London. Maybe they did not want to say what 'knackers' really meant so as not to get an R rating?

Maybe they did not want to say what 'knackers' really meant so as not to get an R rating?

That was my instinct, as well. I mean, what could they have possibly captioned there? "Male unmentionables"...? XD

Of course, that begs the question of why they didn't just end it on a different clip instead of set themselves up for ridicule. (Though I DO love that line...)

this is hilarious.... especially about the scarfs. I missed that... I mean, I know that Matt wears a lot of them but I didn't paid attention to the rest of them. In all those years with the franchise for me it was always about the cases not the detectives or lawyers....

about the words...idk, some were new for me, some not... but i do tend to use 'Mate' lately instead of other lets say synonyms.

I think my favorite part might actually be the "double rainbow" mention.

What was the double rainbow mention? I missed it.

During the scarf section - when they refer to the woman (can't remember her name) who is the cops' boss.

Such a laugh. Really enjoyed this. BTW, in the NPR interview, Jamie mentioned there's a Matt-centric episode on LOUK. Is this an upcoming ep in the second season? I don't recall seeing it if it's already aired in the U.S.

Nice icon. ;-)

The episode Jamie referred to is "Confession". It was the fourth episode of Series 3. If there are no preemptions upcoming on BBCA, it should air in three weeks. Terrific episode. One of Jamie's best performances.

i didn't got to listen the interview yet so i might be mistaken but my guess is that if he speaks about an aired episode, he's referring to 3x04 'Confession'.
