Men Behaving Badly coming to DVD; both fans rejoice

Men Behaving BadlyI'm talking about the American version of the show that ran for a short time on NBC several years ago. It starred Rob Schneider, Justine Bateman, and Ron Eldard. Remember it now? It actually ran for a season and a half before it was pulled.

Shout! Factory is releasing a 4 disc DVD set of the show, which will include all 22 episodes (including seven that never aired). No word yet on if there will be any extras or other features. As you can see from the cover of the box, where Rob Schneider is standing there naked but with a newspaper over his genitals (get it? naked people covered up!), the show was, um, hilarious.

It always amazes me when shows like this come out on DVD. Not a hit, but it came out recently enough and there must be some sort of cult buzz to justify a DVD release. It just makes me think of all the shows in the 60s, 70s, and 80s that lasted even longer but were too long ago and/or don't have that buzz that would make a company put the show out on DVD. Though I guess if shows like this keep getting released, the chances of those older shows coming out increases, so more power to 'em.

The set comes out on February 13.

Great to hear about this! I'm still waiting for "Working" to come out, though. Loved that show.

Well, the show is not in syndication, no cable repeats, the episodes are just sitting on a shelf somwhere..

If there's money to be made, that's usually reason enough to release on DVD.

Now where is HERMAN'S HEAD??

I think Ron Eldard is a great actor, and Justine Bateman was hilarious on this one. Naturally, both left the show when it got (somehow) picked up for a short-lived second season.

How does Eldard keep winding up with regular roles on shows like this? Between this and BLIND JUSTICE, he's tried his best with some really bad material.

Great show I still remember the scene where Rob used his underwear as a filter to make coffee. This show was great until 2/3 of the stars acted like idiots and left the show.
