Harry H. Corbett,
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

The first two series, (the first starring Harry Enfield, Martin Clunes, Caroline Quentin and Leslie Ash and the second starring Clunes and Neil Morrissey along with Quentin and Ash), were actually produced for ITV who then cancelled the show. The BBC then took over two years later in 1994 for the remainder of the show's run, retaining the series two cast. See more »

Twelve across, five letters, god. That's got to be Jesus, right?
They're not the same thing, though, are they?
Yeah, Jesus is the same as God, isn't he? A bit younger.

This is the only comedy series I have ever watched that whether you are male or female you can absolutely relate to.
Either you have done or experienced first hand everything that happens in each episode.
Series 1 with Harry Enfield was fantastic, but when Neil Morrisey replaced him in Series 2 things only got better!
If you have the DVD set (a great investment) then don't forget to check out the outtakes (via the Pub Quiz) - Very funny!
Having read comments from others and external reviews, decided to add a bit more to my comments...
Men Behaving Badly was interesting because it was a show that jumped channels. It started on ITV (only Series 1 I think) and then moved to the BBC. However it was still Pearson TV that were behind it so I'm not sure if the change of channel contributed to the fact that Series 2-6 and Last Orders were better (not only my opinion) than Series 1 or if it was purely better chemistry between the leads plus the public becoming more and more comfortable with them that gave this impression.
In any case, I am only happy that I have never been subjected to the US version of this and I can remember it in its original mode!
