The Real Hustle
Libertarian 'Utopia' Styled After Ayn Rand Book Spectacularly Falls Apart Almost Immediately

It’s hard to feel sorry for them.

Libertarians and Randroids learning the harsh consequences of their own dogma will always be funny. It does make me wonder if there is a stratum of con artists targeting them, having factored in that people who are distrustful of the state and unlikely to go to the police make brilliant marks.

So I have learned the number one rule from Being Human.

You don’t mess with The Real Hustle.

(Unless you want Mitchell to do the washing-up.)

  • (btw not my GIF, don’t know who made it but thank you! and hope you don’t mind if I use it.)


Because I’ve been rewatching Being Human from the beginning, It means I’ve picked up on loads of references and stuff, and HERE the writers were crafty as ANYTHING. In the background is a theme tune, which Hal and Tom comment on - “What’s this? - I dunno, about Con-men or something?” Which is a direct reference to George and Mitchell’s favourite TV show from the old House, “The Real Hustle” the first time I watched it I screamed and Laughed out loud because I /got/ it, I got it! I hope this is a recurring thing because they also referenced Ivan and Daisy later, is BH becoming the new Doctor Who?! :D:D

Headcannon off of yours: Alex Hirsh accidentally met Bill at some point before making the show in the Mindscape. Alex was faced by other demons like Bill, who'd wanted to hurt, break or enslave him. But then Bill shows up and claims first right to get the 'meatbag puppet'. Alex, in all his cleverness, though, winds up tricking and beating Bill at a task or question and ends up having Bill under HIS service. Like for a certain TV show he's been having ideas on based off his childhood...

You mean this one? Yes, this probably what happened. Alex Hirsch is so glad he watched every episode of The Real Hustle
