Neil Morrissey was so good in it that people forget he only joined in season 2 taking over from Harry Enfield.

Well worth a watch for those who've not seen it or never heard of it. Basically it was a 90s comedy where grown men behaved like they were still teenagers getting pissed and acting daft.

It would be nice as a one of special to see the four stars of the show brought back to see how they are nowadays.

Absolutely loved this show. It's one I really should go back and watch all over again.

We had some absolute cracking shows in the late 80's/Early 90's didn't we? Red Dwarf, Men Behaving Badly, Blackadder, The Young Ones and the like.

Tony removing his Tooth and The jealousy episodes are probably my favourites. Or the episode when they get pissed in the crown while the women are in the flat waiting for them. Amazing Show.

Great show although I felt the magic started to fade in the later series', they ended it at the right time before the quality really started to dip.

I would love to see a couple of one off specials to see how the characters are doing now they have entered their more mature years, although not sure if the actors would be up for it as both Morrisey abd Clunes have kept busy with other TV projects and I know in the past they stated about how the show would become ridiculous if two old men were still acting like kids.

I think The Young ones finished in the mid 80s after just two series Baz, but I certainly agree with you about Blackadder and Red Dwarf (which Im pleased to see is still going well today).
As for Men behaving badly, Im glad it finished when it did because it had got tedious by the end and I hate to see a popular show go beyond its sell by date.
Which Only Fools and horses could be accused of doing as well, they should never have come back again after Del & co became millionaires. But thats just me, I say that as a fan and its hard to look back now at those poorer final trilogy episodes.

Completely agree about Only Fools and Horses, the millionaires special was the perfect ending and the later specials that followed were not close to the quality of the previous stuff, the show had definitely seen its shelf life expire. They would have been better served to end things with the Trotters becoming millionaires then when considerable time had past like 10-15 years do another one off special for nostalgic value.

Im not against shows coming back though Fletch, and for example David Jason & co have been really good in the new 'Still' Open all hours.
