Trivia

The characters from Phoenix Nights first appeared in the pilot episode of That Peter Kay Thing (2000), however the club in that episode was called the Neptune Club, which burnt down at the end of the episode. When Peter Kay was approached to come up with an idea for a sitcom, he brought the characters back feeling that he could expand them and give them more depth and he also gave them a new club.

Dodgy Eric: But Brian...
Brian Potter: It's a family fun day man, there's kiddies running around. They can't go jumping up and down on a love length.

Club Land Will Never Die
27 October 2002 | by (Wigan, England) – See all my reviews

After watching the "Peter Kay: Live at the top of the tower" video and "That Peter Kay Thing" on TV i knew Phoenix Nights was going to be great!! And it was!! Peter's comedy being based on experiences in his live is what makes his shows so funny! Anyone who saw the Parkinson interview will know what i mean. His two characters of Brian and Max are played perfectly (alot of people don't realise he plays two people.. lol) and with other wonderful cast such as Dave Spikey, Patrick McGuinness etc. this show could get at least 4 seasons worth of episodes!!

The scrips are well written and the "Easter Eggs" that are placed in the show are excellent! The opening credit's tune is very catchy! The jokes are some of the best i heard... i can't walk down the street without hearing one, especially max's car alarm!!

The last episode of the second season has to be the best so far, when most of the main characters sing on star's in their eyes.. that proves that this is a show that can go on for a long time!!!
