Product Description

Steve [Russell Tovey] and Becky [Sarah Solemani] are young, unemployed and lazy. All they want to do is eat, drink and have sex - so they do.

They don’t want to get a job - so they don’t.

They’re happy to spend their days watching DVDs in Steve’s bedsit, but they’re constantly interrupted by Dan - the lonely bloke from upstairs, Laura and Paul - Becky’s sister and her fiancé or, most frighteningly for Steve, Becky’s parents.

Him & Her is an anti-romantic comedy, lifting the lid on love as it really is - warts and all - with farts, bickering and toast.

Product Description

United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 2.4 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital Stereo ), English ( Subtitles ), WIDESCREEN (1.78:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: 2-DVD Set, Commentary, Deleted Scenes, Featurette, Interactive Menu, Making Of, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: Russell Tovey plays Steve, a laddish man with no desire to seek employment in Stefan Golaszweski's often shocking comedy about what really goes on behind the bedroom doors of today's 20-somethings.Surviving on benefits, Steve has no dreams and no goals and he isn't bothered. He has no interest in any issues beyond eating, sleeping, drinking and having sex.Sarah Solemani plays Becky, a ladette with no desire to seek employment. Popular, true to her friends and always first to hit the dance floor when clubbing with the girls, Becky is sarcastic sometimes to the point of meanness. She sees straight through Steve but is sometimes completely unable to understand the weird self-obsession of men.This acutely-observed, forensically honest, warts-and-all comedy looks at this couple in their mid-twenties and the minutiae of their relationship. The hub of Him & Her focuses on the couple's unmade bed and their rather too lived-in bedsit.Producer Kenton Allen said of the non-broadcast pilot filmed in 2009: 'Stefan Stefan Golaszewski's searingly funny script subverts the TV couple like you've never seen before. He not only captures the essence of young Britain today but portrays - in a very funny and extremely frank way - a modern sexual relationship. Russell and Sarah Solemani have a brilliant chemistry that feels very fresh and very truthful.' ...Him & Her - Season One - 2-DVD Set ( Him and Her - Season 1 )

4.0 out of 5 stars AS IT IS? 3 Feb 2012
By Mr. D. L. Rees TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Young(ish) love - Steve and Becky's idea of bliss as much sex as possible alternating with junk food. The six part series is set in Steve's flat (which they may eventually tidy), each episode unfolding in real time.

Russell Tovey and Sarah Solemani head the cast, Stefan Golaszewski's scripts hailed as more authentic than most. This is a life where gentle teasing occasionally escalates into deliberate needling and furious rows - their origin smelly farts, scattered nail clippings, crumbs in the bed, use of the wrong toothbrush, failure to flush the lavatory. Forever intruding are somewhat unnerving relatives and acquaintances - they anxious to unburden woes ranging from stepping in dog muck to suspicions of infidelity.

It is all certainly different - a welcome break from those sitcoms full of polished one-liners, as a studio audience howls with mirth. Here squirmy aspects of life are acutely observed, viewers perhaps uncomfortably reminded of similar embarrassments.

Commentaries + almost an hour of bonuses - the cast amusingly merciless about their colleagues' shortcomings.

Easily shocked viewers may recoil a bit, others relish a rare glimpse of refreshing honesty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely, Easy Comedy 21 Jan 2012
By beccic
Format:DVD
This has been a bit of a treasure hidden away on BBC Three. Its beauty is its subtlety and the way ir reflects realy life. Squeezing spots, eating frozen food before it defrosts, a "fringe wash" when you're too lazy to wash the whole thing, and finding out a flexible ruler is shatterable after all! We love this series and the box set is perfect easy watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top BBC comedy 1 Jan 2012
Format:DVD
This is my favourite British TV comedy of the last few years by quite a distance. The strength lies in the relationship between Steve and Becky (a healthy mix of love, lust and good-humoured bickering), and how they cope with the lunacy of their assorted friends, relatives and associates. The irony is that, although they're the 'benefit scroungers', they are the sanest, most centred of all the characters.

Particularly impressive is the way that the episodes are engineered as real-time 25-minute snapshots. Often a conversation can be overheard going on in another room (although you do have to turn the volume up high!) while we watch what's going on elsewhere, only for everything to reconvene seamlessly moments later.

A good example of this appears on the second disk (which hasn't been mentioned much elsewhere), namely an unseen argument between Paul and Laura over the 'Sporty Spice lookalike' (see Episode 1). Other extras include informative (and often very funny) commentaries (by the lead actors, writer, director and producer), video diaries, deleted scenes as well as some other miscellanea. You certainly get the impression of the love and dedication given to the production.

Picture quality is as good as you're going to get on DVD. As I've been spoilt by HD-quality iPlayer episodes of series two, a Blu-Ray edition would be most welcome.

Also worth mentioning: because it's so superbly written, acted and produced, it is well worth watching and re-watching because there are loads of little details that you might otherwise miss. Check out Laura in particular for little glances, glares and face-pulls.

Him & Her is so good I've given it 5 stars - even though series 2 is even better. Can't wait for series 3 later in 2012.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous. What a shock for bbc3 12 Oct 2010
By Alex
Format:DVD
This really is a breath of fresh air for a channel that has hardly been at the forefront of comedies for people who want a bit more thought put in. Both the leads are absolutely fantastic in their roles - Steve is portrayed brilliantly by Russell Tovey as blundering but well intentioned and likeable, and Sarah Solemani's cool, clever and often very subtle performance has been that of the best female lead in a comedy for as long as I can remember. Looks like a lot of people identify with lazing around in bed for weeks.

I was a big fan of Stefan Golaszewski's work with the brilliant 'Cowards' and his plays, but he really has found his niche here I think. I just hope there's a series 2 commissioned!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Observational Comedy! 24 Oct 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Ever get the idea that watching the mundane existence of your sole-mate would be a beautiful piece of sitcom viewing? How's that for a opening line to this review about a show, that is fresh and lively and a joy to behold in a very intimate settings thanks to the writer Stefan Golaszewski and director Richard Laxton and stars Russell Tovey and Sarah Solemani. This BBC DVD presents all six episodes on one disc and the second disc has so much more to be tainted with by the talents mention above that you won't miss the currency that has escaped from your wallet!

I thought by watching the first episode that the one line puns and sarcasm would wear thin but Mr. Golaszewski turns the tables and creates a show that delivers brilliant observational comedy something that will endure over many viewings! I just hope that a second is commissioned but if not this will won't be the last you've heard from this talented cast and crew ... cheers to them all!

4.0 out of 5 stars All of life, farts and all ... 17 Oct 2010
By P. Millar VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
I haven't enjoyed many, if any, British comedy shows since 'The Smoking Room' had its two series run on BBC three - and now two come along at once. The first is this show 'Him & Her' and the second is 'Whites'. What these three shows have in common is minimalism where not much happens but a lot is going on. They are all essentially set in one location with a small cast of well thought out characters, a faintly British air of the surreal and nods towards Samuel Beckett.

'Him & Her' involves the lives of Steve and Becky (boyfriend / girlfriend) who sit around in his bedsit watching DVD's, playing video games, having sex and answering the door to their slightly insane friends and family - with Dan, the upstairs neighbour, providing the necessary touch of absurdity (the encounter with Dan and his new 'girlfriend' on the stairs is classic). Everything is in here from the minutiae of human bodily functions to the unsympathetically received breakdown of Becky's sister's fiancee.

Overall a brilliantly observed comedy which deserves another series before it disappears into the ether where other critically acclaimed shows which nobody watches seem to end up.

This series was rated highly by other buyers but I think the attempted humour is more appropriate for a teenage audience.
