    I love the show, it was dark and unrelentingly downbeat, and very funny. I enjoyed the first stage show, I was less keen on the next 2 stage shows, and I didn't see 4 & 5. I think the shows are just too long, it was good for a novelty for the first one, but it doesn't really work that well in that format IMO.

    I will watch a new TV show though, definitely. 30 minutes is the right sort of length to watch two guys beating the crap out of each other.

    Oh, darn, I was hoping this was about a spinoff/sequel for A Midsummer Night's Dream.

    Was this the stage show with the 'le danger, le nuclear bomb' sign? I watched it on VHS many years ago.

    I was just coming here to post this. I don't know whether to be excited by the prospect or go off on a whinge about creativity being dead and scrapping the bottom of the barrel.

    Richie and Eddie back on the screen can only been a good thing. Reading up more on this I see there was a 4th series planned and written but never got made. Wouldn't mind seeing that.

    Maybe all the free beer he must be getting fuelled the idea... :D

    Bottom was great fun; it will be interesting to see how the characters lives have (presumably failed to) move on. And of course, to see what torment might be inflicted with a frying pan, a 12V battery and a pair of wire hangers...

    I'd rather they shelve it than try to go ahead with it and end up having a massive falling out. It would be reflected in the quality of the show, and the last thing Bottom needs is its own Back To Earth.
