Harry H. Corbett,
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).Written by

Originally a vehicle for Harry Enfield who left after the first series feeling that he was the weak link and that the job would be more suited to a 'proper' actor. The producers obviously took this on board and cast Neil Morrissey as his replacement. See more »

The reason I bought my DVD player was so that I could play the DVD's in the Men behaving Badly box set that I was fortunate enough to buy back in 2001.
It was a hefty investment at the time but it has been worth it in repeated laughs since then.
Having shared flats in my youth with friends, I found it easy to relate to the situations that Tony and Gary found themselves in. Work problems, girl problems, hygiene problems - oh how the memories come flooding back!
Who can forget Gary's antics at the all-night rave-party, or Tony's attempts to tattoo himself on the cheap. Even the first series with Dermott (Harry Enfield), though not as good as later series, had many good moments. Just how hard is it to assemble a book-case?
Simon Nye deserves a medal for this stuff!
