This dvd contains the first two live bottom shows and although the subsequent three shows all have a fair number of laughs, the first two are comfortably the best. Both carry on from the tv shows in being set within Eddie and Richard's grotty flat and have stories that are an extension of the kind of antics they used to get up to on tv, except with the freedom of not having the BBC dictating what they can say and do, there's the added benefit of some good quality adult laughs.
The laughs come at a fast rate and even more so when they forget lines and ad-lib. Although it's often been pointed out that a lot of the ad-libbing is as scripted as the rest, that doesn't matter when it's this funny. Even better, this is one of those rare shows that can be watched again and again and still be found funny. I wore out the video of these two shows and had to buy the dvd, and that's been watched several times.
If you've seen the tv series and liked it, you can't go wrong with this dvd.
