Possibly one of the last few BBC comedies created that has managed to raise a smile. Go back in time to the nineties and relive Gary and Tony's laddish antics in a period in history known as the age of the 'new man' and watch them destroy this concept entirely.
A great piece of writing that acknowledges how men behave when there isn't any mature female supervision around and sometimes when there is. It is chiefly aimed at the male audience with chauvinist performances handled perfectly by Tony (Neil Morrissey from Series 2 after Harry Enfield's not so funny performance) and his trusty mate Gary (Martin Clunes). There is however the two girls, lusted after Deborah (Leslie Ash) and the sharp and witty Dorothy (Caroline Quentin) who attempt to keep the boys under control. The chemistry between them all is perfect and they become characters that you grow to love.
The comedy is well written with a combination of gags. Some smutty although not overly so (in comparison to Two Pints) while some are absolute quality showing the clever wit of the writer. Classic episodes include 'Bed' where Dorothy can't get to sleep, 'Babies' where Tony is left with Deborah's flat key to let the gas man in, resulting in one of the most cringe worthy moments in TV history and 'In bed with Dorothy' where Gary finds out how boring ill girlfriends are.
The combination of intelligent but enjoyable scripts and the excellent comedic acting skills of the cast combine to make this a cosy comedy that isn't too smart for its own good. It therefore lends itself easily to the average television viewer.
Thirty eight episodes of pure unadulterated fun - Men Behaving Badly is a very enjoyable and re watchable comedy that doesn't seem to have aged one bit.
So get the lager in, sit down with the bird and watch the telly!!

The entire collection from the 'Men Behaving Badly' team. The first series of Simon Nye's popular sitcom starred Martin Clunes as Gary, Leslie Ash as Deborah, Caroline Quentin as Dorothy and a soon-to-be-replaced Harry Enfield in 'Intruders', 'The Bet', 'Alarms and Setbacks', 'Animals', 'Sex and Violence' and 'My Brilliant Career'. The second series introduced Neil Morrissey as Tony in the episode 'Gary and Tony'; and was followed by 'Rent Boy', 'How to Dump Your Girlfriend', 'Troublesome 12 inch', 'Going Nowhere' and 'People Behaving Irritatingly'. Series three sees the usual suspects up to their usual capers in 'Lovers', 'Bed', 'Casualties', 'Weekend', 'Cleaning Lady' and finally 'Marriage' in which Gary proposes to Dorothy after consuming a litre and a half of Chianti. In the fourth series things get slightly more serious (?) in 'Babies', when Gary and Dorothy decide to have children, but it isn't long before they are reconsidering. This was followed by 'Infidelity', 'Pornography', 'Three Girlfriends', 'Drunk', 'In Bed with Dorothy' and in 'Playing Away', Dorothy and Tony discover an irresistible (and alcohol-fuelled) mutual attraction while Gary and Deborah are away on a writing weekend. The fifth series sees all change in 'Hair', when Tony returns from travelling the globe sporting some hirsute 'face furniture' - only to discover that Dorothy has moved in with Gary in his absence! This was followed by 'The Good Pub Guide', 'Cowardice', 'Your Mate v Your Bird', 'Cardigan', 'Rich and Fat' and in 'Home Made Sauna', Debs and Dorothy go away for the weekend - so Gary and Tony invite the girls next door over for the evening. Finally, the sixth series sees the lads settling down in 'Stag Night', 'Wedding', 'Jealousy', 'Watching TV', 'Ten' and 'Sofa'.
