Product Description

All six episodes from the final series of Simon Nye's hugely successful sitcom. The episodes featured are 'Stag Night', 'Wedding', 'Jealousy', 'Watching TV', 'Ten' and 'Sofa'.

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's 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 6 includes: "Stag Night" in which Gary agrees with Dorothy's suggestion they get married ("We've tried everything else.") provoking potentially disastrous stag-night shenanigans; "Wedding" in which Gary and Dorothy's wedding day fails to run smoothly. ("I don't want to get married--I haven't slept with enough women," he complains. "Do you want to squeeze one in?"); "Jealousy" in which the quartet make the grave error of going away for a weekend in the country; "Watching TV" concerns a quiet night in with Captain Kirk & Co ("On the Starship Enterprise, when no one's looking, do you think they all swivel round in their chairs really fast?"); "Ten" in which the communal boat is rocked by the simultaneous arrival of Dorothy's nephew and Deborah's mother; and "Sofa" in which Tony buys a snake. --Clark Collis

The DVD version also features a quiz.

This excellent "six pack" collection lets you join Garry's stag night (episodes 1& 2) as well as Garry and Dorothy's wedding day. Tony says he's always wondered what colour Deborah's "bush is" and this is answered when Tony and Deborah finally get togther under hilarious circumstances. Tony meets Deborah's mum and the first thing he says is "so Deborah came out of your body?" Garry says a sad farewell to his beloved sofa in episode 6 shortly after Tony brings home a long, skinny pet that ends up in the same place as the sofa. If you're looking for the best collection this is it.

It's easy to see why the series had to come to an end. The actors were no longer thirty-somethings. We all knew that Leslie Ash had been married for years to Lee Chapman, that Caroline Quentin was about to divorce Paul Merton, that even Martin Clunes had settled down and was starting a family. The only one who seemed to live his alter-ego lifestyle in reality was Neil Morrisey. He was having it away with Les Dennis's wife, getting pissed with his mates, buying a local pub so he wouldn't get thrown out after last orders etc etc.

So, this series draws a close on MBB. There was a one-off Christmas special the same year (Jingle B***s), and a three episode Christmas finale two years later (that ends with Gary and Dorothy's daughter being born), but this was the end of the half-hour episodes.

Series 5 ended showing Gary being unfaithful to Dorothy with one of the girls from next door. Dorothy has found out, so to keep her sweet Gary offers to marry her. And she accepts.
The first episode is Gary's stag night and Dorothy's hen night. The second episode is the wedding itself, but because the registrar faints things don't go according to plan. The third episode has all four of them going off in a caravan for the weekend. The fourth episode is an oddity - it is entirely filmed with the gang sitting in front of the TV watching Star Trek. The fifth episode has Dorothy's ten-year old nephew staying with them, and Tony meeting Deb's mum for the first time. The final episode sees Gary getting rid of his sofa, and Tony getting rid of a snake he bought from a bloke down the pub.

You know what to expect from this lot, it's like VIZ on TV. Thoroughly rude, crass, PC free and brilliant.
