Almost the best British Sitcom ever.
but I suspect if I went back to it now I'd find it was just two men making fart and penis jokes for half an hour. So I don't.
And I bet you like to tell people how hilarious you find QI.
not to the best of my knowledge. Neither of them have the same laugh at loud-ness that Bottom had. I rave to people about Day Today and Garth Marenghi mainly
aged a lot better than The Young Ones has
Its the best thing ever.
My new fave. The camping one is on now.
This DAVE channel is good.
Personal opinion - Red Dwarf
Voted by British Public - Only Fools and Horses
Bottom and The Young Ones are both great shows. The Young Ones is seminal and historic, Bottom is just good fun.
not as good as the young ones.
is incredibly dated and of its time, though, which kind of ruins it a bit.
who the fuck like Vic and Bob is what I wanna know?
when people think they're funny, it generally isnt funny. see also - repeating the same joke about 3,000 times. see also "being a shit version of morcambe and wise"
Bottom is less specifically early 90s as The Young Ones is early 80s.
shouldnt be funny, but i think it is hilarious.
I mostly love it when they just dish out damage to each other.
fave episode (sprouts of doom)(or whatever it was called)
not as good as the office or alan partridge, but still my favourite
and it was pretty political, people just can't look past the Violence thrown at them! Dave is brilliant and I watched Bottom all weekend! For the first time in ages.
Thank God for Dave brining
Red Dwarf & Bottom back onto terrestiral tv
once you get past the ridiculous slapstick violence. Some of Rik Mayall's pathetic loner introspection is quite Hancockian. Even my dad noticed this so it must be true.
it seriously is subtle in many ways, it's just very slapstick.
Its one of those easy targets for snobbery from the sorts of people who like telling others about how they prefer using Macs to PCs and Firefox to IE.
"PCs can't actually do anything?"
...said like a question.
shit subjects on Mastermind I think I'd choose Bottom, I must have seen every episode 50 times.
I think it's dated quite badly but I still love it, I still remember nearly dying of laughter the first time I watched them beat up the gasman.
I haven't seen anything on tele that's made me laugh in hysterics/start dying from laughter for years and years. I think Bottom provided a few of those moments.
