Subject: The Jumping The Shark episode
Security: Public
So last night, it was the first episode of the new series on BBC3 of T*, that program firmly embedded in one of Britain's provincial cities.

Yay! (Even though it feels a guilty pleasure to watch it.)

It was, of course, rather rude in places, but also pretty funny, which is what it's supposed to be. And it's supposed to be a program for adults, after all.

Here's to the latest Two Pints.

I felt no guilt watching it.

My only quandary came when trying to work whose kiss I'd want to be on the receiving end of...

You too are a fan of the Runcorn snoggers?

I had to explain the title to OldBloke.

How can you tell it's new? Two Pints is to BBC3 what Police, Camera, Action is to ITV4, or Friends is to E4; appears to be on every time I flick through the channels. I wonder what kind of dirt Susan Nickson (sp?) must have on the Head of Comedy/LE in order to keep getting commissioned. Come to think of it, I'm pretty sure there's a studio at TVC that has been turned over full-time to production of Two Pints, according to my Beeboid sources.

By the way when did Runcorn become a city? :)

New barman in the pub; shot live (at least partly), with shots of audience and cameras&crew.
They've not done that before.

It's not? Ah, I see it isn't. For some reason I thought it had managed to achieve that status.

Damn. If I'd known that was on I might've over-ridden K's choice of RHPS - mind you, she's Two Pints fan anyway :)

I just watch ep1 of the new series via the website, but they don't appear to have the special available *poot*

If you're referring to Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps, I didn't realise it was still going. (Never rarely watching telly has its problems). I have a soft spot for the series since seeing their clever musical episode some years ago. It's a bit racy to be watching with the youngsters about (or was back then) but I could believe the characters.
