I'm a big fan of Men Behaving Badly, and watched them first time round, as well as on other TV channels, so I figured why not get this?
For those of you who don't know, Gary (Martin Clunes) had his own flat - which he shared with Dermot (Harry Enfield). He was going out with Dorothy (Caroline Quentin), but it was an on-off thing. Gary works at a security company where he teases his colleagues, especially Athea - though he's quite rough with George.
This series introduces us to Debs (Leslie Ash) who is depressive girl who seems to always find the wrong men, not achieve what she wants, and has to deal with Dermot - who's persistent.
Don't get me wrong, this is a good series, but this first set of episodes really didn't light my fire. I didn't like Dermot as the flatmate, not because I'm a fan of Neil Morrisey (though Tony really did make the show); I just felt he didn't gel well with Debs, and he was portrayed as too dumb. Dorothy got better with time too, and I think Gary was far too arrogant this series too. There are some funny moments though, like the chess episode.
As someone else has pointed out, this isn't the best mastering either, the sound sounds a bit tinny at times and echoed, also the picture isn't the finest remaster either. Still, it beats having ads in the middle of it.
At the price Amazon are advertising this, it is worth picking up if you're an Enfiend fan, otherwise fans should really consider the Men Behaving Badly: The Complete Collection [DVD
] as it includes all the Comic Relief specials too, and is a nice tribute to the show which celebrated 20 years.
