No good comedy will survive the progressive purge

Comedy is cancelled. Or rather, comedy that doesn't "reflect the times" is cancelled, which in practice is the same thing. According to the BBC, Little Britain will no longer be available on iPlayer because "times have changed". Netflix has followed suit, adding Matt Lucas and David Walliams' other recent hit, Come Fly with Me, as well as The League Of Gentlemen to the banned list for good measure.

Two Pints: Meet new character Billy

I was eager to talk to Freddie, not only to find out what it's like to join a show in its ninth series, but because (and I'll be honest with you here) I have a thing for the scouse accent...

Collette Collins, BBC, 28th April 2011

Devotees of this show, which used to be awful and is now rather addictive, will know that Gaz (played by Will Mellor) is now in a wheelchair.

Just as in Byker Grove many years ago, when PJ and Duncan, later and less enjoyably known as Ant and Dec, went from being joyful youngsters to morbid goons after the paintball accident that blinded PJ, so sitcoms are harder to pull off when the main character is paralysed. Laughter feels wrong. Send for a secret millionaire, I kept thinking to myself, and undo this injustice.

It's incredible Two Pints is stll going

Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps is back on our screens, in a less welcome return than last night's curry.

Christopher Hooton, Metro, 27th April 2011

This, perplexingly, is the ninth series of the sitcom, the purpose of which only seems to be to keep BBC3 from evaporating. This series, only six episodes long, may be the last, however. It introduces two new characters - Cassie (Georgia Henshaw), just released from a juvenile detention centre to stir things up down the pub, and Billy (Freddie Hogan), a would-be footballer who grates with Gaz on account of his mystifying cheeriness. In this respect, he'd make an ideal audience member for Two Pints.
