Two Pints Of Lager is
I think My Family transcends awfulness
At least My Family has unintentionally hilarious moments when a joke is so badly written, it's funny (and the dad is a total Chris).
Two Pints stretches out a joke about being witless scum for a whole episode and expects us to laugh. "I'm off for a fag, and then i'm going to drink more ALCOHOL! *laughter track*"
to the painfully intense upper middle class lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllAMEness of My Family.
Two Pints is clearly written by a group of writers who don't really understand the working class comedy rhythm, and just shove in jokes that are meant to be scummy, but are actually so out of character, it's ridiculous. Like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQjSeb9ywl4
Note how the one that's meant to be stupid like a child talks about the guys "pelvis". It's ridiculous and I hate it. I guarantee, whoever wrote this show has never spent more than five minutes in a "real" pub.
My Family is awful because it seems like the writers weren't aiming for anything at all, and it descends into screaming and family domestics as "humour". Also, the mum is one of THE worst characters ever, and the children are despicable caractures of childhood/teenage stereotypes and easy,easy,easy shit jokes about sex drive/masturbation/rebellion.
I probably like it a bit more because I want to see the dad character lose his shit and just break everyones necks, then piss on their dead bodies before offing himself. One day.. one day..
it's so incongruent it's cringe inducing.

I had no choice really, looking like that.
