Men Behaving Badly (1992) TV series

Creator: Simon Nye

Writer: Simon Nye

Composer: ALan Lisk

Starring: Martin Clunes, Harry Enfield, Caroline Quentin, Leslie Ash, Neil Morrissey, Ian Lindsay, Valerie Minifie

More info: IMDb

Plot: Two early thirties best friends live together while having completely different personalities. While their girlfriends try to help them take on more responsibilities the boys seldom respond well and usually end up drinking together.

My rating: 7/10

Will I watch it again?  No.

What the hell?  I watched the first season and I liked it but then the first episode of season 2 has Gary (Clunes) looking for a new roommate and finding one in Tony (Morrissey).  After three or four episodes with the new guy I gave up.  Dermot (Enfield) in the first season was great.  I dug the chemistry between he and Gary much more than Gary and Tony.  Tony is OK but boy did I miss Enfield's presence after that first season.  It's not a great show but it is better than average.  I guess I should say it just went to average starting with season 2.  The actors were fine but the material wasn't up to snuff.  It's just a bummer that I enjoyed season 1 so much that I was willing to commit to the rest of the 7 seasons until it became just another a little above average show.
