Storyline

Deborah, Dorothy and Gary are trying to watch 'Star Trek' but are irritated by Tony's silly comments so they contrive to get him out of the room by getting him to dress as Braveheart and play Hide and Seek whilst they reminisce on old television shows and their theme tunes. Gary has ordered pizzas on the basis they are free if the delivery takes over forty five minutes so that when the delivery boy arrives he tries to hide to make up the time but is forced to pay. The quartet then eat their pizzas and carry on watching 'Star Trek'. Written by don @ minifie-1

Who Knew Start Trek could be this funny?
11 December 2009 | by (America) – See all my reviews

This is one of the few Men Behaving Badly episodes to truly deserve full marks. Possibly one of the funniest half hours of television ever made! The simplicity of the plot is it's genius. And who knew imitating Star Trek sound effects could be so funny?

I've often wondered if this particular episode was made on a whim...sort of a joke just to see if they could get away with with filming an entire episode with one camera on the sofa. Not that it matters, because it worked. Of particular note is the scene where Martin Clunes and Caroline Quentin are trying to remember the theme song to a long-forgotten television show...priceless.
