We do love a Bad Boy
Artie O’Daly is back with another instalment in Bad Boys – the bonkers comedy series about boys with a daddy-complex.
Bad Boys 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 latest instalment is Bad Boy’s Bad Mom.
Scott is trying to navigate a house-warming, an undercover FBI agent, a case of mistaken identity, and a group scrub-down in the shower. Compelling.
Along with O’Daly, this episode stars Alina Bock, Drew Canan, Braden Davis, and Theresa Ryan.
This is quality queer absurdist comedy. Worth watching.
