* EnforcedMethodActing: Happens most notably in the live episode. There is a scene in which Janet downs a pint of lager in one sip (in real life, a trick glass was used, so that Sheridan Smith didn't actually have to drink an entire pint) and as a result belches twice. The second belch was completely by accident, and the surprised/amused expression on Sheridan Smith's face is genuine. Natalie Casey (Donna), standing right next to Smith at the time, is also clearly struggling to contain her laughter.



* HeyItsThatGuy:
** Colin [=McFarlane=], who plays Brian, would later appear as Police Commissioner Gillian B. Loeb in ''Film/BatmanBegins'' and ''Film/TheDarkKnight''.
** [[Series/{{Hollyoaks}} Jambo and Carol]] are a couple -- and her mum's [[CoronationStreet Liz McDonald]]!



* MoneyDearBoy: Ralf Little, according to his appearance on ''Never Mind The Buzzcocks''.

While the first two seasons of the show consisted of a [[BritishBrevity mere six episodes]] each, the later seasons were much longer. There have also been four "special" episodes - a musical special, which was standalone, a horror special, which, while non-canon, was added on to the end of the sixth series, a live special, which was the seventh season opener, a Comic Relief special, and two specials that aired in 2009, consisting of another musical, and a ''SlidingDoors'' parody.

''Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps'' (commonly shortened to ''Two Pints'' or ''Two Pints of Lager'') is a BBC sitcom written by Susan Nickson. It is set in the town of [[FootballPopMusicAndFlatCaps Runcorn]] in [[OopNorth Cheshire, England,]] and revolves around the lives, loves and assorted issues of five friends, consisting of the [[TeamMom motherly]], caring, yet slobbish Janet Keogh (neé Smith), [[TheSlacker slacker]] but sensitive and all-round nice guy Jonny Keogh, who is Janet's long-term boyfriend and later husband, the laddish Gaz Wilkinson, whose [[TheDitz brain power definitely isn't his strong point]], the ambitious and hot-tempered Donna Wilkinson (neé Henshaw), who is Gaz's long-term girlfriend and later wife, and the narcissistic, insensitive and often [[CloudCuckoolander rather bizarre]] Louise Brooks. In later seasons, Timothy "Tim" Claypole, the Archer's [[CampGay bitchy and camp]] new barman, and Donna's new boyfriend, the overly Cockney, initially [[{{Jerkass}} unpleasant]] but later rather friendly Wesley Presley, were added to the cast roster. The show was first broadcast in 2001, and ran for nine series over a decade, making it one of BBC Three's most popular shows.

* HarsherInHindsight: In the episode ''Lard'', Janet and Donna agree that Jimmy Savile was an even greater tragedy of our time than male bonding. Of course, at the time, the writers probably had in mind Savile as the naff shellsuit-wearing, cigar-smoking TV presenter. However...
