DVD Review - Men Behaving Badly 20th Anniversary Complete Collection

Men Behaving Badly 20th Anniversary Complete Collection

Created by Simon Nye.

Starring Martin Clunes, Neil Morrissey, Leslie Ash and Caroline Quentin.


Flatmates Gary and Tony are your typical “lads”, a pair of irresponsible, politically incorrect and seriously juvenile men who refuse to grown up and whose idea of heaven is sitting on the sofa, drinking lager, talking about women and putting the world to rights while watching Kylie Minogue videos on the TV.

The classic British sitcom Men Behaving Badly receives a new DVD reissue this week in celebration of its 20th (well, 21st) anniversary, as FreemantleMedia Enterprises brings together every booze-soaked, politically incorrect moment from all six series, the 1997 Christmas Special 'Jingle Balls', the final 'Last Orders' trilogy and the rarely-seen Comic Relief sketches 'Kylie' and 'The Lost Pilot' for the very first time in one 8-disc collection.

Wolfmother Parting Ways With Dave Atkins

Australian rockers Wolfmother are facing another line-up change - they have lost a second drummer in as many years following the departure of Dave Atkins. The band was rocked in 2008 when two of the three original members, Chris Ross and Myles Heskett, left the band citing "irreconcilable personal and musical differences".

Frontman Andrew Stockdale decided to continue the group and recruited new members, including Atkins, to take their place. But the band has hit trouble again with the announcement that Atkins has quit to "spend much-needed time at home with his family".

A statement from Wolfmother reads, "After two years of good service to Wolfmother, Dave Atkins has decided to leave the band to spend much-needed time at home with his family. Dave has had a great experience touring and recording with the band, though in time, it's proven to be too exhausting and taxing on his home life."

In August 2008, after nearly two years of touring in support of their breakthrough debut, Wolfmother returned to their native Australia for a triumphant homecoming show at the Splendour in the Grass festival. It would be the last time they'd ever share the stage together.

Three days later — amid constant media speculation that the band had broken up — Wolfmother's record label released a statement announcing that drummer Myles Heskett and bassist/keyboardist Chris Ross had left the group due to "irreconcilable differences" but that wild-haired guitarist/frontman Andrew Stockdale had decided to soldier on under the Wolfmother mantle, with plans to write and record a new album ... all by himself, if necessary.

For almost a year, Stockdale toiled away, writing and recording, playing guitar,
