Trivia

The entire story arc would actually still work as a straight drama series, although some scenes and dialogue may have to be re-worked to modern standards of expectations. See more »

Goofs

There are three different versions of how Jonny and Janet got together. In the first series, Gaz states that Jonny left his previous girlfriend for Janet. In series 2, it's Janet who left her boyfriend, Andy, for Jonny. In the musical special, they are both single and meet in a nightclub. See more »

Quotes

Gaz: [the song Gaz sings every night before he sleeps so not to dream about sheep] Bringing in the sheep, bringing in the sheep. What do we do before we sleep? We bring in all the sheep.

Crude, sour, but I can't help but love it
14 May 2004 | by leo_leouencourSee all my reviews

The script is often shoddy, the acting sometimes atrocious, but if you are willing to look beyond these things, you might just find an intense, comedic rollercoaster charting the ups and downs of five twenty-somethings.

Starring Ralf Little (Perhaps the most famous of the five, due to the success of The Royle Family), Sheridan Smith (Reprising her role as Little's love interest), Will Mellor and Natalie Casey (Hollyoaks) and Kathryn Drysdale, a previously unknown face somewhat, we have a promising cast, who while may not have hit the mark quite yet, are certainly in line for a promising future.

Two Pints has a great variety of characters, some tedious, while others eerily humourous, the image of Donna's mother will forever haunt me.

"Have you ever experienced an older woman?"

Ugh, so in summary, while obviously not a frontrunner for many academic awards, Two pints has many golden moments, and perhaps in a few years, when the cast having been famed or forgotten, this show might get the recognition it deserves.
