The reason I bought my DVD player...
4 August 2004 | by (Adelaide, Australia) – See all my reviews

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!
