Product Description

All six revolting episodes from the third series of 'Bottom', which presented Adrian Edmondson and Rik Mayall in similarly unpleasant roles to those that they played in 'The Young Ones' and 'Filthy, Rich and Catflap'. The stories are 'Hole', 'Terror', 'Break', 'Dough', 'Finger' and 'Carnival'.

From Amazon.co.uk

Rik Mayall and Adrian Edmondson give the flat-share sitcom a much needed kick up the Bottom in the show which, alongside Men Behaving Badly (1992-8) injected new life into a legendarily dire genre. With glorious comic gusto they play Richie Rich and Eddie Hitler, a pair of misfits barely surviving unemployment in a Hammersmith hovel. They spend their life in frustration, minus female company or money, in facile schemes to entertain or better themselves, their best intentions always proving the catalyst for hilariously OTT cartoon-style violence. The humour benefits from being rude, crude and surreal, and though happily bereft of subtlety or sense the situations and set-pieces are always superbly constructed, delivered and directed. But that's only to be expected from a show that essentially presents two of The Young Ones a decade down the line. --Gary S Dalkin

Format: DVD
I cannot watch these two without dissolving into laughter, it's not just the toilet humour but everything about this show, the slapstick, the ridiculous names, the looks, the set and the sheer silliness of it all, it's true escapism, and I have to say, totally harmless(!) - they weren't trying to make a statement when they made Bottom (about from perhaps trying to prove that fart jokes are still funny - they would be correct in that assumption as well), it just seems that they made Bottom because they enjoyed it and wanted others to enjoy it as well. Unlike some of the more aggressive and dark comedies that are being written nowadays that actually make you feel quite uncomfortable at times, this is just sheer slapstick and daftness that will never fail to make you giggle. I agree with the previous reviews that said about Bottom not being mentioned when people talk about Fawlty Towers and Monty Python etc, these two should be up there with the greats. For me personally, series 3 is my favourite, just because I think it's actually the funniest of all three series, and unlike other comedies, they didn't commit the faux pas of dragging the series on up until season 15,000,000, they followed the '3 series' rule and left the audience wanting more. Those who wanted more could go and see the stage shows like I did. And of course, who could forget the cattle prod halloween incident(s), or the sight of Ade Edmondson in a purple sequinned dress and wig with his 'jugs on the wrong way round' and garish red lipstick all over his face, whilst struggling to walk in high heels.... I don't think I'll be forgetting that image in a hurry...........genius!

I can't help thinking that Bottom gets overlooked too often when so-called 'classic' sitcoms are mentioned. Normally you just hear of 'Only Fools and Horses', 'Porridge', 'Blackadder', 'Fawlty Towers' and a few others, but I can't be alone in thinking that Bottom ranks up amongst the best.
Rik Mayall and Ade Edmondson are sensational in all three series, and the fact that the whole show is basically a two-hander makes it that much more impressive. I think they too are criminally underrated, and a huge part of the phenomenom that is 'The Young Ones'.
Series 3 contains the infamous 'the one where they're stuck on a Ferris Wheel' episode, which I still think is one of the funniest as I enjoy watching enclosed space episodes of sitcoms (One Foot In The Grave did that one where they're stuck in the traffic jam). It takes guts - and strong material, and great actors - for a sitcom to do this kind of episode, and Bottom pulls it off well.

Again another excellent performance from the probably the best 2 comedians of the 90's, and excellent series to rival the first 2. I still laugh at them all and probably will do for a long while. 5*****

What can I say that hasn't been said a thousand times already. Bottom is a much missed classic that will forever live on in the hearts of it's many fans. Series three for me was the pinacle of the show. My personal favourtie is...., well actually I love them all and one doesn't stand out above the rest. Comparing Bottom to todays pathetic attempts at comedy is not worth doing. There has not been a brittish comedy since it that has been better and that's sad considering it's been a long time. Although it does help when you have two of comedy's best giving us their best work. If you havn't seen Bottom treat yourself, if you have I don't need to tell to buy this dvd as chances are you already have. Thank god shows like Bottom and Red Dwarf were made!!!.

This the 3rd and final series of Bottom has to be my favourite of the three series they did. It features Richie and Eddie doing what they do best, namely drinking, swearing, and beating each other up a lot, but when it all comes together it works perfectly! The 6 episodes are all great in their own right, but my favourites have to be Finger or Carnival. Of the 90's sitcoms, this has to be ones of the best, and is highly recommended for fans of ruder comedy.

Format: VHS Tape
The best of the 3 series of the wonderful "Bottom" with Rik Mayall and Ade Edmonson, in my opinion the 2 greatest comedians of our time. Although the episode with the Ferris Wheel is a small let down the Halloween episode alone more than makes up for it, along with other episodes. My favourite of which being the one with the Hammersmith Street Riots, with looting, stealing and hundreds of crates of malibu. This video is also educational and shows the best way to win a pub quiz is by keeping encyclopedias in the toilet and rigging opponents buzzers so they shock anyone who presses them. This video is one of the best I've seen and in my opinion is even better than "The Young Ones" or "I'm Alan Partridge" Gratuitous violence ahoy!

This is the best BOTTOM series out of the three that were made. The hilarity is second to none. When viewing this, ha ha ha, video my stomach was stabbing with the copious amount of laughter that had taken place. Adrian edmonson and Rik mayall are the ultimate comedy duo and have the upmost in comedy capabilities. Truely worth the cost and the time spent watching. This was a real insight into comedy acting
