but the whole backstory with the uploader is a fascinating little detail to this particular video
oh, bottom was so great at its peak (and so bad at it's ebb)
There were only 3 short series - not enough time to run out of ideas.
the 3rd series is one of the worst things ever made. As is the film, and most of the live shows
and that's just the pilot which is loosely based on Waiting for Godot <3
The 3rd series had the ferris wheel one, and the one where Eddie dresses up as Richie's wife. Plenty of (UK) gold in there. You can have the film, I guess, but I reckon they didn't put the Bottom name on it because they knew it doesn't live up to it.
Don't know why fans of almost every sitcom/series seems to need to have a 'weak' series to wail on. Like Red Dwarf, it was all low-rent and scrappy from the start - it's just good to see those people playing those characters.
the series première, is the only remotely decent thing in that train-wreck, because you can tell it's the only one they really bothered to actually write properly (and even then, it's a story they did before in the camping or shopkeeper episodes).
I don't NEED to wail on it, I don't WANT to either, but that series is so, so poor because it's everything that it's critics accused it of being all along; i.e mindless, crass, self-indulgent television when for the first two series it was a really clever show disguised as a stupid one.
the third series is brilliant and there wasn;t even a film anyway
- a whole episode in the 3rd season
