The annoying thing is that the scripts for series 4 of Bottom were completed with both Rik and Ade set to go however the BBC refused to fund it.

They were probably trying to keep the money to fund some more reality karaoke singing garbage or has been celebrities dancing to get a carer boost.

When you think of the classic dramas and comedies that the BBC used to invest in, some of the shows these days are an insult to decent programming.

Eddie: This is a sex shop isn't it?
Shop Assistant: Yes.
Eddie: [slaps money down] I'll have five quid's worth then!
Shop Assistant: Very droll sir, I've never heard that one before.
Eddie: Haven't you? Shall I tell it again?
Shop Assistant: No thank you sir, I'd rather have a pineapple inserted violently into my rectum.
Eddie: You've been working here too long mate.

I saw the heading 'Bottom' and 'Paul' and naturally assumed this was about Paul's Bottom. I'm wrong though, aren't I?

I'm afraid it's not about my lower region.

I love Richie in that scene

Assistant: Can I help you, sir?

Richie: No.

Assistant: Do you wish to purchase anything to assist you with your sex life?

Richie: What are you implying? That I'm some sort of sexual inadequate? I have a very full and rich and varied sex life, thank you very much. I don't need anything from a shop like this!

Assistant: Would you get out then sir?

Richie:No.

Assistant:Why not?

Richie: It's a secret.

Guest House Paradiso is criminally under-rated and unfairly hated, I reckon.

No scene in all cinema has made me laugh as much as the "Candle in the eye!" misunderstanding.

Oddly, I am not a fan of slapstick comedy usually, but Rik and Ade have made me laugh consistently throughout the years. "Bottom" is a pinnacle of television.

I think all of the tv series are brilliant and rarely among tv series, there's not a bad episode (I can think of only The Young Ones and Fawlty Towers which also managed this)

As for the live shows I really like the first 3 but last ones to be a step to far as it had become stale by this point.

Guest House Paradiso I also liked, the kitchen punch up nearly caused a riot in the cinema people were laughing so much.

This would be a great set to re-release either on DVD or even blu-ray if they spent some money and got Ade and Rik to provide episode commentaries.

this so needs a rerelease, the dvds are cut. the line 'thieving bastard gypos' has been replaced with 'thieving bastard yobbos' then the word 'gypsies' is censored again with a ghost train siren.
plus it uses the extended version of the xmas episode which has some different and inferior line reads, like the way eddie says 'half past eight and all's crap' is funnier in the original edit. the extended episodes need optional scene branching.
little niggles like these really wind me up, i havent been able to get rid of my vhs yest because of this censoring and alternate take using. grr.

From the episdoe 'Burglary'

They hear burglars downstairs:

Richie: Now what are we going to do?


Eddie: Shit our pants?
Richie: No, I've already done that.
Eddie: [flapping his hand] Thought so.
Richie: I'm onto stage two.
Eddie: What about surrender?
Richie: Good idea.

[They put their hands up in the air and start to walk to the stairs.]

Richie: No, no, they might beat us up.
Eddie: What, and cut our bodies into a thousand different pieces?
Richie: And skin us alive.
Eddie: Yes, and then put on our skins.
Richie: Yeah, and do foul depraved lovemaking to our still twitching corpses.
Eddie: Yeah, that's it... And eat our livers.
Richie: Yeah, and drink our blood... ooh, ooh, and play cricket with our hearts!
Eddie: Yes, using our love truncheons as wickets!
Richie: Haaargh! And then do, do weird sort of pagan dancing flapping our skins about the room, and smearing naked girlies' breasts with our throbbing disintegrating brains!
Eddie: It's not much of an option really, is it?
Richie: Not really, no. Given the choice I'd skip it.
