* CrossOver: The UsefulNotes/ComicRelief special 'When Janet Met Michelle' features characters from ''{{Grownups}}'' and ''Coming Of Age''. The fact that Sheridan Smith plays both Janet and ''Grownups''' Michelle is a source of major awe and confusion for some of the other characters.

* 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.
