Did You Know?


After the mainly off-camera game of 'name the TV theme tune', Paddy states that Billy only correctly identified two TV theme tunes, one of which was 'Porridge'. In fact, 'Porridge' didn't have a "theme tune", it began with a spoken word monologue, and had no closing music, and for a time was considered quite unique for being bereft of a 'theme tune'.

absolutely brilliant
23 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

absolutely brilliant!! it may not be as good as phoenix nights but M & P are top guys in comedy. Peter Kay as Max and Paddy Mcguinness as Paddy (coincedence in the names?) is the best comedy double act i have seen in years!! ( i may only be 14 but i know comedy well) i have to admit when i saw the first episode for the first time i thought it wasn't that funny - but i gave it a chance and as the series progressed it got funnier and funnier. the bit about Tina is absolutely top class "eh up i see cabarets arrived" as paddy said about her. there are some brilliant lines in here from Dink Dank do to How Dare you (hey that rhymes!!). my personal favourite is Too Far Tony!! maybe because I'm a Northerner myself (Manchester Massive) i find this funnier than others do.

this is a comic gem 10/10 the best sitcom i have ever seen
