Great Laddish sitcom , lots of laughs await in this boxset !,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Men Behaving Badly Six Pack - Series 1-6 BBC  [DVD] (DVD)
MBB is a great laddish sitcom with plenty of laughs !
I think this comedy has abit of everything in it .. there's lots of crude laughs .... but also some subtle comic genious in it too .... i personally thing this is comedy everyone can enjoy ... becuz we all have a little rowdy lad in all of us !
It really stands out from the dozens of generic looking comedies that revolve around couples ...... it sacrifices glamour and youth ..... for more average looking actors who more down to earth , have greater characterisation than just streotypes and who give genuinely more funny performances ....
You really grow attached to the characters as the series go by .... the chemistry between the 4 central characters is so great ! they gel together really well and play off eachother so well resulting in great comedic timing.
This box set contains 6 series , which totals at 38 episodes ... so it's great value for money ... amazon is selling it currently at £30 .... so that's less than a pound an episode !!!
it will take you ages to get through them all !!!
I think in this world there are two kinds of shows ..... shows that start off great , but later lose steam and drag on for the sake of dragging on ...... and don't develope much further / cover the same ground over and over again in repetition ....
on the other hand there are shows that don't start of so great .... but develope with time into something really great .....
MBB is the latter ..... it doesn't start off so great ..... infact the first series can even be considered below average .... the second series is picking up and things are starting to gel ......series 3 and onward are gold !
In the first series tony is not present and in his place is dermot who is played by harry enfield ...
I love Harry eEnfields and Chums .... but here he doesn't seem to really shine that much .... series 1 isn't that great to be honest .... it could actually turn off first timers if they were to watch the boxset from start to finish ...
That's the problem with series that don't start off so well and end up great .... you gotta get people past the bumpy start .... series 1 would make it hard to introduce this title to someone ....
When Tony arrives ... the chemistry starts to develope .... and later on they're all great playing off eachother !
Neil Morrisey is the missing link/ingredient to make the show great !
The only let down is , this isn't quite a complete collection ...... the last 4 episodes of series cannot be found in this boxset !
Dvd extras include outtakes ... but only can be accessed through a short quiz for each of them .... which can be tedious if you want to see them again ( and annoying ... since it seems to take like 3 seconds for each question to load up .. )
But the last 4 episodes can easily be found on amazon on 2 seperate dvds for very cheap !
the chrismas special is on the jingle balls dvd and the last 3 episodes can be found on the " last orders " dvd ....
Anyway buy this if you are a fan of british comedy , this is one of the greats .... over 3 dozen episodes for a great price !
