The Late, Great Rik Mayall Thread

Recommended Posts

so this was the transition from the young ones to bottom :)

I always love when Rik walks around with his pants pulled up high , he does dork so well ..... lol

Yeah, when it got cancelled and the next thing he did was The New Statesman, I assumed that would be the end of the mindless violence between him and Ade, so when Bottom came out I was well happy. I read that a forth series of Bottom was written, but the BBC turned it down!

R.I.P. Rik Mayall.

Poor old Ade. so sad .....

His coffin looks like a basket - must have been something he wanted ?

Great stuff StZ, thanks!

Strider, have you checked out Filthy, Richard & Catflap?

Only one series was made, the BBC decided not to make anymore for some reason and never repeated it either.

Everyone I knew liked it though. I bought it on video when it finally got released in the 90s.

The whole series seems to be on youtube.

Thanks for this bit of info Ady! Had not seen it before.
