Unusually dangerous, I trust you'll agree...
on 14 January 2009
I remember these from the 80's, although I must have missed some (and the Kinky Sex episode was definitely new to me as it was apparently banned at the time!), and the good news is that they are as funny as they ever were. When this arrived from Amazon a couple of days ago I couldn't wait to put it on, and soon after my wife came in to ask what I was cackling so loudly about! Brilliant - if you like mindless comedy violence and low-life perves, which if you're a fan of Rik and Ade you must!
While there are hints of The Young Ones, and it's certainly not a million miles away from Bottom, the closest similarity is their Comic Strip Presents masterpiece "Mr Jolly Lives Next Door", which involves much the same drunken violence - the Dangerous Brothers episode Babysitting reminded me a lot of Mr Jolly, especially the gin consumption.
If you remember these from the first time around, the DVD is highly recommended as the sketches still stand up very well (ooh er missus). Amd if you don't, but you know and like Rik and Ade's other work then this is not to be missed. If, on the other hand, you are a person who values taste and decency, and has no wish to see anyone sticking dynamite down their trousers, avoid like the plague. Unusually dangerous, I trust you'll agree.
