The pageant of boorishness and slobbery known as Men Behaving Badly launched itself upon an unsuspecting audience in 1992,
Over the course of six episodes, Gary (Martin Clunes), the disgruntled manager of a security alarm company, struggles to break up with his long-suffering girlfriend Dorothy (Caroline Quentin) while competing with his aimless flatmate Dermot (Harry Enfield) for the attentions of their fetching new upstairs neighbour Deborah (Leslie Ash),
The plots are built on contrivances like a chess match over opera tickets or an attempt at seduction via a synthesized flamenco guitar, but the humor always springs from the petty, careless, and generally inane behavior of Dermot and Gary,
Gary persuades Dorothy to accept an open relationship, then becomes consumed with jealousy when she sees another man; Dermot tries to persuade Deborah to relieve their basic needs while her boyfriend is in Singapore,
It could be tiresome squalor–and according to reviews, the American remake of the show (featuring Rob Schneider and Ron Eldard) was just that–but Clunes and Enfield invest this pair of clods with enough humanity to make their mishaps both excruciating and funny,
Enfield left after this first sextet of episodes; Clunes and Enfield’s replacement Neil Morrissey took the show to five more series, but Enfield’s charming dimness makes this first series worth a look,
