Always made me laugh... at least twice per episode
2 June 2004 | by (Oxford, England) – See all my reviews

Nobody's written any comments on this so I'll chip in. I really can't remember much about "Bad Boys" apart from that it made me and my brother laugh a lot. Mainly we were laughing at the over-the-top Scottish accent of Fraser and Malky's bungling sidekicks. The theme tune was a cheap as it could have been and the only reason we watched it was because we were about thirteen and 10 and they repeated the advert so many times we felt compelled to do so. But the story lines were so off the wall that you couldn't help but fall for its charms. My favourite episode was the one where Fraser faked his own death (for the insurance pay out, I think) and then rose up from the coffin singing "My Way" at his funeral. Genius!

It's actually one of my biggest regrets that I never saw the series finale to this show: the ratings were obviously awful because it lost its normal slot after three or four shows and kept getting moved around. I'll never be able to forget "Bad Boys" for this reason, since I suddenly saw that the final episode was on and tried to record it because my Mum was watching something else (probably the news or something else pointless like that). No doubt influenced by the slapstick violence of the programme, I reacted badly when my Mum stopped the video (since I was "disturbing" the news). I punched a window clean through and still have the scars to prove it. Don't do it!! Even if you did just miss the end to your favourite show.
