Here's a shout-out of thanks to Scotty at TV Tanline.
TV Tan Line posts screencaps from the shows that he's been watching - 'Lost', classic 'Star Trek', 'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia', 'The Tudors', 'Wonder Showzen', 'Doctor Who', 'Hotel Babylon', 'Penn & Teller's Bullshit!', etc.
And I'm learning more about a lot of shows I might never have seen otherwise, like 'That Mitchell & Webb Look', 'Human Giant', 'Skins', and the twofer for which I'm grateful: 'Gavin & Stacey' and 'Two Pints Of Lager (And A Packet Of Crisps)'.
While displaying the frame grabs from the second episode of the second season of 'Gavin & Stacey', TV Tan Line added the factoid that Sheridan Smith, the actress who plays Janet on 'Two Pints', was making a cameo appearance in the episode as a take-out window clerk for a fast-food restaurant.
According to TV.com, her character's name was Rudi. So there goes the chance that she could have been Janet Keogh. Besides, Janet and the rest of the cast from 'Two Pints' were living in Runcorn in Cheshire. Stacey was originally from Barry in the Vale of Glamorgan in South Wales, while Gavin lived in Billericay, Essex, but she eventually moved in with Gavin. There's not much chance they'd ever get up to Cheshire just for fast food.
But in that second episode, Gavin's buddy Smithy went AWOL when he found out he got Nessa pregnant. So maybe that road trip of the guys took them up to Runcorn where they could have met up with Janet.....
Of course, there's still the matter of that name of Rudi.....
Janet was working in a bakery and then moved up to becoming the manager of the Archer bar. After it was closed down by the health inspectors, maybe she needed whatever job she could find to make ends meet for her and her child, Corinthian. (Her husband Jonny got killed off at the beginning of the seventh season.)
But after being the manager of Archer's, maybe Janet felt the fast food job was an embarrassment, so she used an alias there.....
However, that only works if Gavin's road trip to find Smithy took them to Runcorn......
It would make for a nice little link between the two shows, not that they really needed one. All shows are one in the TV Universe.
And that's Inner Toob Blog Post #2600!
