Sometimes, things can’t help but strike you as odd, or out of place. An orange in a bowlful of apples, for example. A gecko in a punnet of raspberries. Or Rob Lowe in a British drama series set in the wilds of Lincolnshire.
There’s something about a daring heist that makes for great entertainment. Ocean’s 11, The Italian Job – the first one, not the rubbish Marky Mark effort – Robin Hood, they all play into our glee at seeing the plucky underdog rob the undeserving rich and stick it to the man.
