Trivia

One of the show's most unique features is the characters' voices talking over the end credits. It was discontinued after Season 2 because 'Steven Moffatt' felt it wasn't working as well as it did in Season 1. Also, the actors grew fed up of showing up for the recordings because it meant they had to come in on the weekend. See more »

Best young adult series ever.......
7 June 2000 | by (Somerset, England) – See all my reviews

I am watching 'The Last Word' episode of PG as I write this. My sister has quite a lot of PG's on video, and The Last Word is my fave.

Press Gang has got to be the best young adult TV series that was ever made. The drama is fantastic, and the comic moments are side splitting (Colin is the funniest character!) I wish they'd make them like this now, but lets face it, this kind of excellence only comes once every so often.......
