From Amazon.co.uk

The ultimate small-screen representation of Loaded-era lad culture--albeit a culture constantly being undermined by its usually sharper female counterpart--there seems little argument that Men Behaving Badly was one of 1990s' definitive sitcoms. Certainly the booze-oriented, birds-obsessed antics of Martin Clunes' Gary and Neil Morrissey' Tony have become every bit as connected to Britain's collective funny bone as Basil Fawlty's inept hostelry or Ernie Wise's short, hairy legs.

Yet, the series could easily have been cancelled when ITV viewers failed to respond to the original version, which featured Clunes sharing his flat with someone named Dermot, played by Harry Enfield. Indeed, it was only when the third series moved to the BBC and was then broadcast in a post-watershed slot--allowing writer Simon Nye greater freedom to explore his characters' saucier ruminations--that the show began to gain a significant audience.

By then, of course, Morrissey had become firmly ensconced on the collective pizza-stained sofa, while more screen time was allocated to the boys' respective foils, Caroline Quentin and Leslie Ash. Often glibly dismissed as a lame-brained succession of gags about sex and flatulence, the later series not only featured great performances and sharp-as-nails writing but also sported a contemporary attitude that dared to go where angels, and certainly most other sitcoms, feared to tread. Or, as Gary was once moved to comment about soft-porn lesbian epic Love in a Women's Prison: "It's a serious study of repressed sexuality in a pressure-cooker environment."

Series 2 includes: "Gary and Tony", in which Tony moves into the Gary's flat and makes his first disastrous attempt to woo upstairs-neighbour Deborah; "Rent Boy" in which Gary thinks Tony is gay; "How to Bump Your Girlfriend" in which no sooner has Tony got back together with his old girlfriend and filled her in about Gary ("nice bloke, ears like the FA Cup") than he decides to give her the shove; "Troublesome Twelve Inch" in which Gary tries to sell a rare record belonging to Dorothy without her knowing; "Going Nowhere" in which Tony buys a van to impress Deborah who in turn gets stuck in a lift with Gary; and "People Behaving Irritatingly" in which Tony's brother and missus visit the flat much to Gary's annoyance ("It's not enough that they were at it all last night, now they're trying to set up a national sperm bank in my bath.) --Clark Collis

Product Description

Entire second series of Simon Nye's popular sitcom. In 'Gary and Tony', Gary (Martin Clunes) needs a new flatmate, and all seems lost until Tony (Neil Morrissey) turns up. 'Rent Boy' sees Gary beginning to have doubts about Tony's sexuality, while in 'How to Dump Your Girlfriend', Tony decides that he needs to finish with his girlfriend before he can embark on a relationship with neighbour Deborah. 'Troublesome 12 inch' sees Gary in trouble after selling one of Dorothy's records without her knowledge, and in 'Going Nowhere', Tony purchases a van and electric blanket in the hope of seducing Deborah. Unfortunately for everyone, however, she is stuck in a lift with Gary. 'People Behaving Irritatingly' sees Tony's nightmare brother and his girlfriend coming to stay - much to Gary's annoyance.

The entire DVD is interactive which maximises it's usability. Quizzes allow you to test your knowledge on each episode, and with each quiz answered correctly you get to see clips of them all making a mess of their scripts. The episodes start from when Gary and Tony meet, to when Gary gets locked in a lift with Debra. Funny from start to finish and is an absolute classic. An essential buy for any Men Behaving Badly fan!

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have video 11 May 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
After the ordinary performances by all concerned in the first series, this is the video which really kicks off the MBB phenomenon. Even the suspense as you await Tony's (Neil Morrissey's) entrance is brilliant.... you know he is the new tenant in Gary's flat, but you don't know when he is going to appear, and when he does, it completes the team. Although I liked Harry Enfield's first ever episode in Series One, he seemed to go downhill quickly in the following episodes, and it is only when Series Two gets going that you can see the appeal of the whole team. I also believe that you are watching the careers of four people (and supporting cast) blossoming in front of you as they get to grips with the plots and weave some magic into Simon Nye's best writing ever (he hasn't done this level of work before or since, in my opinion). There is always an element of farce as Gary (Martin Clunes) lies his way into tricky situations, only to be outdone by Tony (Neil Morrissey)who can tell even bigger lies and get into more trouble. By the end of this series, you can understand the complexities of all the characters and go on to enjoy all the other videos in the set. (Can't wait for the home made sauna episode again.. series 5, I think) Hope this helps you enjoy the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars People Behaving Irritatingly 11 Nov 2013
Format:DVD
This comedy series is all about two mates, Gary and Tony who share a two bedroom home. They are grown men who act like a couple of drunk two year olds, who spend their time either drinking beer at the local Pub, or at home having all MALE conversations on the couch (while drinking beer).
