Trivia

In the 3rd Episode, Peter Kay decided not to use a stunt-voice for the scene where his character was required to sing Elton John's "That's why they call it the Blues". Kay sang the song himself and also did it in his character's voice. However later in the song they did dub in the actual harmonica solo, as Patrick McGuinness could not play the harmonica.

Looks promising
13 November 2004 | by See all my reviews

We last saw Max and Paddy, the dimwitted bouncers from the Phoenix Club at the end of series 2 of Phoenix Nights. The two had been hired as hit men, but didn't do the job and instead paid off the person they were supposed to be killing. Max spent the money on a camper van and when the lady who hired them finds out they go on the run fearing for their lives.

Max, played by Peter Kay, is the quieter of the two, but probably the more intelligent. Paddy, played by Patrick McGuinness thinks of himself as God's gift to women - quite an opposite to Max.

The first episode, as written by Kay and McGuinness showed itself to be funny and refreshing. New jokes, new stories, and a new direction for Kay - this could be his first sitcom based outside of Bolton! Thats not to say basing a sitcom IN Bolton is a bad thing mind.

Max and Paddy's Road to Nowhere looks like it could be a good solid comedy and I look forward to seeing more.
