Inspired by a brief chinwag with Godzilla in a Noel Edmonds thread, I ran a quick search and noticed that Bottom doesn't have a topic here.

Now I know that many people look on it as a poor relation of The Young Ones, and others say that Filthy, Rich & Catflap was better but quite frankly, Bottom was on telly in my early teenage years so I love it to bits. What say you, Empire Forum types?

As you can see by my Signature I am a big fan of it. It was a big part of my childhood( I'm surprised my parents even let me watch it, then I found out in my teenage years that a lot of my mates watched it when they were kids too). Up until christmas last year I hadn't seen it for ages, but my parents bought me the boxset on dvd and there were so many jokes I 'get' now that I am 17 and can understand them. Than when I was 7, yet I still found it funny. Along with Spaced and The Office it is in my top 3 sitcoms, (don't ask me to order them by preference, I just can't).
I also went to see 2001: an arse oddity with my older brother, I never laughed as much in my life, I also saw a lot of children there with their parents, which made me remember when I was younger and I watched it with my family.
My favourite episodes have to be, culture (the chess one), Holy (christmas episode), s'out (camping ) and Hole (ferris wheel)

I also went to see An Arse Oddity, but I saw Weapons Grade Y-Fronts on DVD and it was dreadful.

Anyhoo, best line ever: "Curry's window's just blown...they've thrown Aswad through it!"

I went to see Weapons Grade in Glasgow and almost peed myself laughing! I was a pretty late starter when it came to Bottom, but love it now, mostly because Rik Mayall cracks me up. Went to see him in the Blair B'stard project last month and although it's not quite the same without Ade and a few frying pans in the bollocks, it still had me laughing almost to the point of a hernia.

Bottom, along with Monty Python's Flying Circus, and Blackadder, is one of my all time favourite Tv shows. I absolutely love it, especially at just how pervy Rik Mayall comes across. The fights are total genius, and all of the episodes have me laughing to the point of tears. The boxset is definately one of my better purchases.

I loved the show. I also saw Weapons Grade live and it was just so funny.

They have written another series of Bottom but the BBC turned the script away saying they no longer do that sort of comedy on the BBC

Rik said it was the best series of bottom they had written it a shame that we will never get to see it.

It's a fantastic show. I remember watching the 'womanising deodrant' episode when I was younger, and my mum making me turn it off because of the language.

But does it make anyone else feel dirty? It sounds silly but there's something about the low production values and the shitty lives they lead that make me feel grimey when I watch it. I have to be in a certain mood to be able to enjoy it.

Yeah I kinda get what you mean...they live pitiful lives and I always felt very sorry for them...bloody hilarious though and one of my favourite shows

Eddie: This is a sex shop isn't it?
Shop Assistant: Yes.
Eddie: 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 used to absolutley love this show when I was in school, I hadn't seen an episode in years until yesterday when UK Gold aired one. I couldn't stop laughing, it brought me back to being 9 or 10 years old. I'll be buying the boxset.

Personally, I prefer Filthy . . . (you only have to look at my user name & avatar for that one), but there's no denying it's comedy genius.  I can't quote the whole thing verbatim, but one of my favourites was when they were trying to invent a party game:

Richie: Pin the tail on the donkey.
Eddie: But we haven't got a donkey.
R: Pin the tail on the fridge.
E: But we haven't got a pin.
R: Sellotape the tail to the fridge.
E: We haven't got a tail.
R: PUT A PIECE OF SELLOTAPE ON THE FRIDGE!!!!

At which Eddie puts some tape on the fridge and waves his arms in the air.

I've also used this classic from Eddie before:
Eddie: I've just had a brilliant idea!
(Eddie then downs his pint)
Richie: Well?
Eddie: What?
Richie: What's your brilliant idea?
Eddie: Oh. To drink that!

I was lucky enough to be in the audience for the first live video at Southapton Guildhall.  If you look closely you can see my hands clapping

While watching a video they steal from a BBC van, which is obviously the Prime Minister in a kinky sex session, Richie has this etremely puzzled look on his face and says "Is it just me or is there a sexual undertone going on?"

One of my favourites (can't remember the exact quote, but it's near enough)

Richie: What in the name of Greek buggery is the use of a plastic duck?
Eddie: It floats in the bath.
Richie: Yes, but why the duck?
Eddie: It came free with the tele.
Richie: (shouting) Eddie we were looting, everything came free with the tele. Why didn't you get a free tele with the tele?
Eddie: (shouting) Because it would sink in the bath.

You can't argue with logic like that!

'Gas' may be the funniest episode of any show that I have ever seen.  Really.

I used to love this as a kid, my favourite episode when I was younger was Holy, the christmas episode.

Eddie: I hate Brussel Sprouts
Ritchie: Nobody likes Brussel Sprouts!
Eddie: Then why are we having them then?!
Ritchie: BECAUSE IT'S CHRISTMAS!

Apocolypse is also another of my favourites.

Also another funny line which I can't remember all of it, was when Eddie gives richie a piece of paper for a horse (Madam Swish 3:30), but richie thinks it's for a prostitute. And at the end when Richie realises it is a horse, comes this great line:

Eddie: I have given you a red hot tip!
Richie: Well there's nothing I can do about it now, is there!

The episode where they go camping in Winbledon is well funny.

One of the best (if not the best) is the canival episode. it goes something like this.

Richie " Awww look Eddie its the kids from the local school in the postman pat van"

Eddie " What are they doing"

Richie " There ram raiding the off licence"

Eddie "  awww There too young to know"

Richie " Know what"

Eddie " You have got to get up pretty early to beat your old uncle Eddie"

Bottom live 3 is my favorite live show and my favorite episode is the Ferris Wheel one. Though the Christmas and camping episodes are both astonishingly funny.

Richie: Let's just be economical with the truth, errrm, something, buck, yeah hot young buck.
Eddie: What about badger?
Richie: No, no I'm more a sort of...
Eddie: HEDGHOG!
Richie: No fox! That's good, no that is good.
Eddie: Stoat!
Richie: Foxy Stoat? Yeah! It's gotta a ring to it... foxy stoat seeks...
Eddie: Pig!
Richie: Foxy Stoat Seeks Pig! Oh Shut up Eddie!

Absolutely love Bottom. First started watching it when I was 3 years old and I'm now 17, and it never gets dull. My parents even hid the tape when I was 3, but I found it.
I have many tapes of Bottom but my favourite is the Bottom Live: The Stage Show (1993)

Richard: [after an incident involving a blow-up doll named Monica and some superglue, Richard has, apparently, lost his penis] Ah, Monica. You were the first, and you'll be the last. You took my cherry... right off!

That bit at the beginning where they can't find any breakfast so they get a box of Special K out of the bin but it's rock solid. And Eddie does the quiz on the back of the box...
I want to go to Benidorm because.... birds with big knockers flapping around

'Gas' is probably my favourite episode. The scene where they beat the shit out of the unfortunate gas man never fails to crack me up! It's just the excellent noise that the frying pan makes when Eddie hits him with it and the fact that he does it many times that does it for me! And then there's the hideous squelching noise when Richie sticks a fork into his genitals...

Richie: Oh right, we bloody won that bet, didn't we?
Eddie: No we didn't, that's why we had to eat his dog.

My favourite episode is probably when they have absolutely nothing to do and eventually end up playing chess with a bnuch of crappy items from around the house

Also the one where they get robbed, capture the burglar and proceed to "interrogate" him
