Bad Boyes was basically a British teen comedy, about a boy called Brian Arthur Derek (BAD) Boyes, a mischievous schoolboy who had a tendency to get himself into trouble and consequently had a series of misadventures. He was especially prone to clashing with his ultra-strict form teacher Mr Wiggis (Gregory Cox). As for his parents - his kindly but weak-willed father (Dean Harris) was always completely fooled by his son's innocent facade, but his mother rather less so - it rarely took her long to get to the bottom of her son's devilish plots, and her war-cry of "Bri-an!" was always a sure sign that he'd been rumbled. The series also starred Warren Brian as Edward 'Slug' Slogg, who was the school bully who often clashed with Brian, Susan Jameson as Brian's mother, Nicola Greenhill as Bernetta Vincent, Brian's close friend and confidante, Christopher Owen as their well-meaning but ineffectual headmaster, Helen Cotterill as Brian's mother's neurotic and decidedly oddball friend Rose Moncrieff and Lila Kaye as Brian's grumpy and mean-spirited Gran.
I used to watch this when I was a teenager and it was very funny and exciting to watch. They only made 2 series and both were fantastic. Probably one of the very few teen comedies I enjoyed when I was young. At the moment, there are some episodes uploaded on YouTube !!!
