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

On the original broadcast, there were no on-screen episode titles (which are rare in British sitcoms), but they have been added to the Video & DVD releases. See more »
So horrible, in fact, that the UK version probably changed it's name to "British Men Behaving Badly" so no one would confuse the hilarious version with the wretched American one starring (of all people) SNL's Rob Schneider and Ron Eldard (who was much better in "Sleepers").
The UK version stars Martin Clunes ("Shakespeare in Love", "Saving Grace", and the voice of Kipper) and Leslie Ash (who's had some atrocious plastic surgery since- she doesn't even look like herself anymore). Watching Clunes and Morrisey fumble around through bachelorhood is hysterical, since you wouldn't believe some of the things they do to cover their tracks from their girlfriends (who, of course, already know what they're up to). Great show. Too bad NBC insists on doing their own versions of Brit comedies- remember the debacle that was the American "Coupling"? Ugh. Leave it to the pros, guys.
