Rowan Atkinson plays Trevor who is house-sitting in a luxurious mansion when he starts being tormented by a bee in this quirky and goofy short comedy series, Man Vs Bee.

Rowan Atkinson is one of the world's funniest tv guys. From the iconic Mr. Bean to Johnny English and Blackadder, Atkinson has entertained audiences for decades. And now he's at Netflix with Man Vs Bee.

In his usual style, Man Vs Bee is a quirky and goofy short episode series created to give all the family a good laugh.

With episodes running at just 10 minutes each, this is perfect comedy for adults as well as kids.

The story goes like this. Rowan Atkinson plays Trevor, a lovable but bumbling dad who accidentally lands a new job as a housesitter.

But this is no ordinary house, instead, it is a luxurious mansion filled with priceless artwork, classic cars and a very cute pooch called Cupcake.

Trevor is delighted and knows that the money from the job means he can take his little girl on holiday. There's just one very small problem. A bee.

Following him absolutely everywhere, Trevor starts to think that the bee is out to get him and, over ten episodes, does his very best to kill the bee.

Of course, because this is a physical comedy series, Trevor ends up almost destroying the house, doing irreparable damage in the process.

So can Trevor keep everything under control or will Man vs Bee lead to disastrous consequences?

Rowan Atkinson is a comedic genius and he doesn't disappoint in this series either.

Because the episodes are short they are very easy to watch especially with the kids who will absolutely love the slapstick comedy on offer.

It's funny in a way that only Atkinson can pull off so if you fancy a few laughs then give Man Vs Bee a try.

  1. I understand that this series is aimed towards a younger audience. However some of the humor I think is just not appropriate and at times unnecessary and disgusting.

    Take for instance the first episode when Trevor (Atkinson) enters the house for first time. Immediately, Cupcake (the family dog) runs to his crotch and digs his snout into Trevor’s frontal *sensitive* area. This adds nothing to the story, is uncomfortable to watch and just gross.

    Also, in Episode 3 around the 3:50 mark, after failing trap his foe (the bee) in his pants, Trevor removes his pants and to his dismay sees that the bee has escaped. To find where the bee escaped from, he then sticks his index finger through the fly of His pants. As you can image, an index finger sticking out of ones fly does not look like a middle finger any more… It looks like a certain said body part with the camera focusing in on this. Why the actor could not put his hand through the opening or two fingers through it to avoid the similarity, I do not know. But a single finger looks suspicious and is highly suggestive. Even if kids don’t get it – most adults would.

    If this isn’t shocking enough you go back in the episode 3 to the beginning, as he wrestles with the bee in his pants. Trevor makes incredibly sexualized maneuvers – humping the door and moving his hand in his pants in an identical way to masturbating. I am not kidding go to the 1:30 minute mark.

    I don’t know why there is or needs to be a focus on an adult males genital’s for humor..? Especially for a series aimed at young children and families.
    I would not recommend.

    There are many other ‘family friendly’ shows out there, this is not one.

  2. Saw the “jokes” coming from miles away.
