Men Behaving Badly

From Academic Kids

Men Behaving Badly is a British sitcom, broadcast originally on ITV but moved to BBC ONE (and a later timeslot) from the third series onwards. Six series were made, and a final short run of three 45 minute episodes was made in 1998 to finally wrap the series up. There has also been a Christmas special. There do not seem to be any plans to make more.

Written by Simon Nye, it centres around two "blokes", Gary (Martin Clunes) and Tony (Neil Morrissey) (Tony replaced Dermot (Harry Enfield) from the second series on) sharing the ground floor flat owned by Gary in a converted house.

Their lives centre around lager and girls. The former is easy to come by, both in canned form and at their local pub, The Crown. As for the latter, Gary has a long-term girlfriend, Dorothy (Caroline Quentin), and Tony pines for Deborah (Leslie Ash), the girl upstairs. Neither of these necessarily stops them looking elsewhere for their "totty", though Gary usually feels guilty if he goes much beyond ogling some Kylie Minogue publicity shots.

The series was briefly remade for US television with a different cast. As a side-effect, the original series was eventually screened in the US on BBC America as British Men Behaving Badly.

The series was not without controversy as it was claimed young males were copying their "bad behaviour", and in the public imagination it has become synomous with the mid '90s lad culture phenomenon. In one notorious scene, the boys pretend to be Welsh in order to stop their neighbour selling their house.

Not to be confused with the NBC Sitcom that aired in 1996 and 1997 that starred Rob Scheider, which took place in Indianapolis, Indiana.
