Possibly one of the best episodes out there
9 June 2014 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

It has all the ingredients that all the other Bottom episodes have. Lots of (very much fake) violence, foul language, dirt, 'a hint of' sex, and of course Ade and Rik - may he rest in peace. Nothing more, nothing less, although this episode stands out as one of the best. It's also one of the very few episodes that doesn't take place at the flat, but in a sad excuse for a park around where the guys live.

I've had it lying around on VHS ever since it was first broadcast way back in the mid 90s, and it still makes tears come to my eyes from laughing.

The type of humour Rik and Ade bring in Bottom is hit or miss, but if it's hit, it's pretty much like that dart in the back of Rik's head... spot on!
