    Bottom

    I've enjoyed watching quite a few episodes of the intelligent and educating British TV-series called "Bottom".

    Any of you familiar with it? If yes, did you like it?

    The two guys behind the show, Rik Mayall and Adrian Edmondson, has also released a movie called Guest House Paradisio. I have this one on DVD and it's hysterical.

    For those who aren't familiar with Bottom, here's some info from Wikipedia:

    Bottom is an award-winning British sitcom of the early 1990s(and later a series of stage shows), written by and starring Rik Mayall and Adrian Edmondson, as the crude and mentally deranged Richie and Eddie; two desperate flatmates on the dole. The programme ran for three series on the BBC, spawned five live stage tours between 1993 and 2003, and a film adaptation in 1999 entitled Guest House Paradiso. All the material is now available on VHS and DVD.
    Controversial in nature, Bottom is noted for its intentionally crude and highly violent slapstick[2]. Bottom became number 45 in the 'Britain's Best Sitcom' poll[3].

    The series was absolutely hilarious, and so were the first three live shows (Number four and five took place after Rik Mayall recovered from nearly killing himself on a quad bike and had lost some of their spark, although there are still moments of genius). Number three is hilariously funny and most notable for the two of them being upstaged by a door.

    Guest House Paradiso is a good movie, with the same black humour as the show and stage acts.

    As they have now gone on to do separate projects, and are getting on a bit now, it seems that the boys from Bottom are no more.

    Check out the Dangerous Brothers too, Rik and Ade in fine form!
    This is not a signature

    Bottom was brilliant.

    And don't forget where it all started... The Young Ones. Just as great as Bottom.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!
