Can't go wrong with Mr Kay
on 14 October 2004
It's about time his first series was released! And I'm sure he's been waiting for it as well, joking about the wait on the featured commentary with Patrick McGuinness(Paddy) and Craig Cash (Early Doors & Royle Family fame).
Six episodes with 15 different characters played by Peter Kay, before his Phoenix Night's fame. Including Brian Potter at the Neptune Club, Marc Park the soon failed pop 'star', Leonard the oldest paper boy in Britain (Based purely around a old friend of Peter's), Matthew Kelly and his first night as a steward at the M E N Areana and the famous Keith Lard, the fire safety officer.
The series has it all. All of Peter Kay's best creations on one DVD, even Max and Paddy make an appearance a long the line.
The DVD also has commentary, superbly done by names already mentioned, out-takes and alternative endings which are best left as out-takes and the pilot episode 'The Services' where you can see how Peter Kay's fame started brewing.
If you're a Northerner, you'll love it!
