Here are 20 recent comedies that wouldn't have been green-lit today.Ed Power, The Telegraph, 17th October 2017
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.Amol Rajan, The Independent, 27th April 2011
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.David Stubbs, The Guardian, 26th April 2011
You asked. They answered. Natalie (who plays Donna) and Luke (who plays Tim) took time out from filming the new series of Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps to reply to the questions you sent in via Facebook, Twitter and the blog.Dana Stevens, BBC, 10th March 2011
