Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps Back On VIVA

Monday, 7th October, 2013


Lots of digital channels like VIVA buy the rights to old shows which is sometimes good, but usually they end up buying things which have already been re-run before, so they just seem boring. Shows like The Fresh Prince Of Bell Air which I loved, but it’s been on so much on a variety of channels that it’s just not the same.

But VIVA are now showing Two Pints Of Lager, from the first series! 😀 I used to love this show, it takes me back to around 2000-01 when I was back in college, I would watch this all the time. If you missed it the first time round then basically it’s a British comedy set in Runcorn with some 20-something year olds. Janet and Jonny (Sheridan Smith and Ralf Little) are a couple, and their friends Gaz and Donna (Will Mellor and Natalie Casey) are also a couple, with Louise (Kathryn Drysdale) being the girls single posh friend, who gets the odd boyfriend every now and then.

The first several series of the show are the best, so I am looking forward to watching them. It’s on weekdays at 22:00 on VIVA and they show two episodes a night. It was first on BBC Two, then moved to BBC Choice (remember that!) which turned into BBC Three.

If you missed it first time round you should watch it now because it’s great, or maybe it’s just me reminiscing about my youth :mrgreen:

    I used to watch it when it was repeated on bbc3 at like 12 or something (now 19)
    But why isn’t viva showing anything past season3… After that its just season 1 again!

    I love this show

    i have noticed that viva is showing two pints but they seem to be running round in circles of the same series out of all the series i think they should change them and show some different series i like watching two pints but the same series is getting boring each week
