Watch Vicious

Stuart and Freddie are an elderly gay couple who are very near celebrating their fiftieth anniversary together. In the 2013 British sit-com Vicious, Stuart and Freddie luxuriate in their life together by hurling at each other some of the gravest insults ever heard, all the while displaying a deep and lasting commitment to their relationship.

Freddie is an actor, working now only occasionally and spending a great deal of time reminiscing about his career. Stuart, who used to work in the hospitality industry, does the cooking and hosting of guests, of which there are many in this show. Each episode presents Freddie and Stuart as they visit with friends and family. Violet (Frances de la Tour) is a woman of an uncertain age who likes men?.a lot. Ash (Iwan Rheon) is the young straight guy who lives upstairs. Stuart and Freddie have an old dog named Balthazar, although he has yet to make an appearance on screen. And then there is Mildred (Hazel Douglas), Stuart's mother, who doesn't learn of the couple's relationship until the sixth episode.

What the show lacks in action and change of scene is thoroughly made up for by the wit (usually venomous) of the dialogue.
