Netflix viewers missed Brad Pitt traveller moment in The Gentlemen series

Netflix viewers missed Brad Pitt traveller moment in The Gentlemen series

We’re only three months in to the year and yet we’ve already had all kinds of bangers to watch.

From Fool Me Once kicking things off to ‘terrifying’ true crime docs and from a new Adam Sandler film to the recent release of The Gentlemen, Netflix has been knocking them out.

A spin-off of Guy Ritchie’s 2019 film of the same name, the new series was released on 7 March and fans have been loving it.

Starring Theo James as the lead Eddie Horniman, it follows him getting a taster for the underground crime world when he’s forced to take over the secret family business.

The actor explained to LADbible that it’s a ‘completely different story’ to the popular film and while it’s ‘in the world’ it’s ‘more in a fun, bombastic Guy Ritchie way’.

And while it is a self-contained story without any of the original film’s characters, fans have noticed the odd reference to the wider world of TV and film that others might miss.

Included in that mix is a Brad Pitt reference.

During the fifth episode of the series, Eddie and Susie (played by Kaya Scodelario) try and negotiate with a group of travellers in a caravan.

Hang on...that looks familiar.


The pair are hoping the bunch will help them ship some of the weed from their Halstead Estate.

And considering their deal, the travellers discuss it amongst themselves in whispers. Eagle-eyed film fans out there might notice this is a nod to one of Ritchie’s iconic films.

In 2000’s Snatch, Pitt’s character Mickey tried to haggle a deal with Turkish (Jason Statham) and Tommy (Stephen Graham) for a caravan in ‘periwinkle blue’.

Other little Easter eggs in the series see nods to Giancarlo Esposito’s role in Breaking Bad.

He plays Stanley Johnson in The Gentlemen, a businessman who sells meth – much like in the popular series.

All in all, fans have been loving this new Netflix drop and particularly are urging others to watch the penultimate scene in the pilot where Eddie’s older brother Freddy (Daniel Ings) dances around in a chicken suit against his will.

Fans say it’s ‘so intense’ and you’ve really just got to watch it to truly get it as another said: “The Gentlemen chicken scene is so sad omfg.”

“The chicken scene in ‘The Gentlemen‘ Season 1, Episode 1 is one of the finest movie scenes l’ve ever seen in my life,” one wrote.

“So well-written and perfectly acted out. F**king hell!”
