Trivia

The fictional newspaper Richie and Eddie reads is called The Hammersmith Bugle. In the Marvel comic book "Spider-Man" Peter Parker works for a tabloid newspaper called "The Daily Bugle" and funny enough, In Bottom: Culture (1992) Eddie uses a Spider-Man doll as a chess piece. See more »

Goofs

In the episode 'Apocalypse', Eddie (disguised as the grim reaper) states that he doesn't know how to play chess, and Richie says that he will teach him. However, in the later episode 'Culture', it is the other way around - Eddie knows how to play chess, and Richie does not. See more »

Brrrrilliant!
9 September 2004 | by DonSalsaSee all my reviews

Richard Richard and Edward Hitler...ahhh...I love everything these guys do. Rik Mayall and Adrian Edmondson is the most violent,fun comedy act around.I'd go as far as saying that this duo is as equal revolutionary as Monty Python. It's really not easy comparing this...all I can think of is The Young Ones(another show by Edmondson and Mayall).Expect your typical in-your face British humor with a dose of Python meeting Ren and Stimpy. Watch these sad old roommate gits,Richie - always trying to score with some bird and using horrible pick-up lines and Ed Hitler,drunken looser.They seem to always beat up each other silly...and and...now just go and watch it..you bastard!
