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

This is the best show the BBC has to offer and the best English comedy series besides Fawlty Towers, so I feel and lucky a Dutch TV station finally picked this one up last year (I hope they'll also broadcast them following season).
The show is about Tony (Neil Morrissey) and Gary (Martin Clunes, whom some of you might remember as Richard Burbage in Shakespeare in Love) who live together and as the title of this show suggests they behave badly, actually they are pigs. They are dumb, filthy, insensitive, asocial and they drink a lot. But most of all they are believable, never have I seen a show that is so believable with such extraordinary' people in it. Then of course these two are not alone, they are joint by Gary's and Tony's upstairs neighbour Deborah (Leslie Ash) and Gary's girlfriend Dorothy (Caroline Quentin), who can actually be just as filthy as Gary but only if she feels like it.
This really is a very good show, because the actors are great and it is funny (if you have got the right sense of humour, cause if you don't you might be offended). This a 30 minute gross-out session I just MUST attend every week.
