We do love a Bad Boy
Artie O’Daly has kept us entertained with Bad Boy – the bonkers comedy series about boys with a daddy-complex.
Bad Boy explores the encounters between Scott (played by Artie O’Daly) and the bad boys in his life. There’s a loose narrative that connects each of the episodes, but what’s important is that O’Daly has created a group of characters that are funny, engaging, and watchable – whatever they’re doing.
One of the ongoing tensions in the series is the boys assuming that Scott can be categorised as a Daddy in a Daddy/Son sexual sexual dynamic – because of the age difference. It’s an assumption that Scott tries to resist, but not very effectively.
The final instalment in the series is Bad Boy Murder Mystery – a two-part conclusion to the epic narrative arc that we’ve been following since the series began.
Is it possible that this is the end to the Bad Boy saga? Or is there more Daddy/Son fun to be had?
This is quality queer absurdist comedy. Worth watching.
