The boys are back in town, and true to form they've not got any student digs. Unlike in fresher's year, however, any work that Jack (Dylan Llewellyn) and Danny (Jon Pointing) put in now actually counts towards their degrees. That means biweekly all-nighters at the library and fewer evenings on the lash. Eventually, at least... maybe. Big Boys season 2 started on Channel 4 on Sunday, January 14 in the U.K. – and Brits abroad can watch it from anywhere with a VPN.
While Danny focuses on the numbers game, Corinne (Izuka Hoyle) and Yemi (Olisa Odele) successfully refine their pulling techniques and Jack has a revelatory experience of his own, a gay encounter that leads to a new object of obsession. Move over, Alison Hammond, Jack's heart belongs to a sexy Brent University lecturer now.
Danny's estranged father, Dennis (Marc Warren), re-enters the picture claiming to have grown up, but not everyone's convinced. Under pressure to accept his olive branch, however, and having witnessed Jack's grief at his own father's passing at close quarters, Danny doesn't feel like he's got much choice but to accept Dennis' words at face value.
Jack, Danny and Corinne, meanwhile, get a rude awakening when they dip their toes into the world of work, a living nightmare conducted by a roll call of excruciatingly eager office drones.
