Love it!
24 April 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have only ever seen clips of Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps and it looked OK but not enough for me to watch it. Will Mellor is great in this. I first saw him in The Street series playing a builder who realises he is gay and he did a really good job and impressed me as an actor. He has a good supporting cast in White Van Man particularly the meant-to-be irritating Joel Fry as Darren. The situations are bizarre but believable and the script is well written too. it makes a pleasant change for a comedy to hit it's stride straight out of the box. I just hope there is another series as well done as this one.
