Whilst that is structurally true, the truth goes much deeper than that. Their constant battles with each other in particular and life in general seemed to take the template established by the likes of Hancock's Half Hour and Steptoe & Son to a whole new level, but they were in essence merely continuing the tradition set by those two comedy creations. All three pairs of characters desperately need each other, but seem to spend their time with their constant in-fighting. Of course if you didn't like The Young Ones, then you won't like Bottom.
