If you have digital TV you’re in for a treat tonight: the new series of Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps kicks off with a live special on BBC3 at 9pm! It’s an unfairly-maligned show, and once you get into the humour and the characters it’s brilliant. That said, it will be a bit different this year, as tonight’s episode is going to write out Ralf Little’s character, Jonny.
In fact, last night I attempted to go and watch the recording session for one of the other episodes of this run, and joined the obligatory enormous and badly-stewarded queue… only for them to shut the doors when we were about twenty people away from the front. As this may well be the last series of the programme, this is of course stupendously annoying. Still, I’m determined to get into TV Centre for a look at it before it is knocked down – I’ve got a few more years yet to do it.
