People Are Saying Last Night's 'This Country' Was The Best Episode Of The Entire Series
*There are spoilers for This Country series 3 episode 5 in this article*
This Country's penultimate episode dropped last night and people are saying it's the best episode of the series yet.
Apparently a lot can happen while you wait for the Parish Reverend to arrive on his train - which is exactly what Kerry and Kurtan Mucklowe were doing for most of the episode.
Aptly titled The Station, the episode was packed with classic gags, such as when the cousins spot Reverend Francis Seaton's 'Jesus is my airbag' bumper sticker, and discuss the priest's lack of street smarts after he was tricked into paying a pimp £500 after chatting to a prostitute about the weather.
Another hilarious moment comes when Kurtan lobs one of Kerry's shoes onto a train. Of course, the doors close and Kerry can't retrieve it in time.
(It's the easy gags that do it.)
Hilarity ensues again when Kurtan decides to wind his mum up on the phone - which really finished us off.
The Mucklowe's mum had been having a barney with Steve from the Dairy Farm about money she supposedly owed, so Kurtan decided to calls her and pretends he's Steve for banter. It's worth catching up on just for that.
When Reverend does finally arrive, Kurtan comes up behind him to jokingly nick his briefcase and he gets pinned to the floor.
People on social media were digging the episode, too.
One took to Twitter to say: "Definitely the best episode of this country".
Another said: "tonight's episode of This Country might just be the best one ever".
A third added: "Newest episode of this country is one of the best yet".

Another penned: "Last nights #ThisCountry might be the best episode yet, Gutted next weeks is the last one."
One Twitter goer said after watching it: "When you just can't help but rewind repeatedly in order to watch the vicar's "hand of god" pinning Kurtan on the bridge! Reverend Francis Seaton, you legend."
It was pretty funny so we're unsurprised by the great reaction.
The series once again paid tribute to Michael Sleggs, as it discusses his character Slug's penchant for Tudor reenactment.
Cast regular Michael tragically passed away from heart failure last year and Daisy May Weston (nee Cooper) and her brother Charlie Cooper, who play lead roles of Kerry and Kurtan, always said they'd honour him in series 3 since he didn't have chance to feature in it.
It is something not only they did in episode one in the most hilarious way, but by mentioning him throughout, including in last night's episode.
Next week's show marks the last in the BBC Cotswold-based mockumentary for good.
Although picking up critical acclaim since its release in 2017, the writers as well as lead actors in the series, Daisy and Charlie, explained the show had come to "a natural end".
This Country's final episode will air Monday 23rd March at 10.45pm on BBC One.
