Burnistoun, Series 2 Episode 5 of 6

Episode five in the second series of the comedy sketch show written and performed by Iain Connell and Robert Florence, and set in the fictional but strangely familiar Scottish town of Burnistoun.

This time the town's caped crusader, Doberman Man, comes face-to-face with his archenemy Big Sanny Tolan's boy, Peter and Scott go to great lengths to avoid seeing the faces of rival fans celebrating a televised football match, and James Bond finally arrives in Burnistoun for an unpromising encounter with his local female contact. A vending machine fights back after being kicked by a dissatisfied would-be customer, we find out what action to take when being kept awake by noisy seagulls, and Carlos Zumba demonstrates why his dance craze is such a hit with the ladies. A local undertaker offers a surprising funeral deal and Burnistoun's local MP gets caught out by online technology. Finally, we go back in time to the local dance hall at the time of the Second World War and see how the local girls reacted when the Yanks came to Burnistoun.
