TV Series of the Month – Bottom

This month’s TV series: Bottom (1991-1995)

The British comedy series is about best friends Edward and Richard (Eddie and Richie) who share a flat together, living off the government and doing nothing with their time. These episodes showcase their hijinks.

The series is created by its stars Adrian Edmondson and Rik Mayall (who star in and write all eighteen episodes), Ed Bye produces the show.

Bottom is the third series with Edmondson and Mayall. The first is the brilliant The Young Ones (Christopher Ryan from that show also shows up in a few episodes of Bottom) and the second Filthy Rich & Catflap (which I have only seen the pilot of, as it is included on The Young Ones’ DVD set). Bottom lasted three seasons before Edmondson and Mayall took the characters to the stage performing live shows. While The Young Ones is probably the best of the three series, Bottom is also incredibly funny and is a must-see for fans of that show.

Trailer: Here (well, really, the first episode)
Available on: DVD and Video On-Demand
