4.0 out of 5 stars Duplicate material August 17, 2005
By PhreD
Format:DVD
If you like British comedy, you'll love French and Saunders, but don't buy both collections unless you like duplicates!

The French and Saunders Collections I and II both contain the same four DVDs: "The Ingenue Years, "Living in a Material World, "Gentlemen Prefer French & Saunders," and "At the Movies."

With Collection II you get, in addition, "On the Rocks" and "Back with a Vengence."

Hope this saves you time and disappointment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! The entire collection July 14, 2005
Format:DVD
Ironically, this collection was available in North America before it was the in UK.

French and Saunders (F&S) are one of Britain's best comedy teams.

They've worked together since the 1980s and are each known for singular success in a BBC comedy (French - The Vicar of Dibley; Saunders - Absolutely Fabulous.)

The DVDs are "best of" selections from each series (what we in the US call a season) of shows. Each DVD contains special programming (holiday specials, etc.) The extra specials are well worth the price of the set.

F&S are best known for their movie parodies, "white room" sketches, imitations of well known celebrities, and music video parodies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolute Halarity! July 16, 2006
Format:DVD
French & Saunders are a brilliant comic duo. This set is all the best of their wit, poking fun where it's needed most and total nuttiness. Gotta love those British gals and their side splitting antics. I don't enjoy viewing many things more than once, but this program is repeatedly funny (which is why I purchased it in the first place). I continue to catch things I hadn't the first time around and always end the DVD with a sore belly (from cracking up that is, not gorging myself with snacks). What was that sound?.....oh, it was just my busting gut.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious! January 10, 2007
Format:DVD
"...age cannot wither their stale and infinite variety." Endlessly amusing! If only this collection were comprehensive and included EVERYTHING F&S. Alas, we can only content ourselves with these meagre compilations, hilarious as they are. A MUST HAVE for anybody that has ever enjoyed British Comedy, or enjoys laughter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!! October 21, 2005
By Elise
Format:DVD
I loved this!! It is great to be able to see a collection of French and Saunders finest work in Australia, where we often miss out on a lot of overseas things. Particularly brilliant are the Titanic and Lord of the Rings spoofs, with appearances from my favourite characters, the prop designers!! Also includes a lot of old favourites like Jackie and Leanne and plenty from the 'extras' ladies!! Overall I loved it and would recommend it to any fan who wants a laugh.

5.0 out of 5 stars French & Saunders is a hit with me. January 11, 2007
Format:DVD
I really enjoyed the DVD set. Some comedy is for the English audience but most of it should be understandable by everyone who loves good comedy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two thumbs way way up. January 15, 2006
Format:DVD
For those who love French and Saunders or just one half the duo, this collection is a must buy. Even if you don't know who these funny british ladies are and love comedy that will have you gasping for air between laughs, you need this collection. So, are you going to try the accent?

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious October 7, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As the title of my review states, hilarious! I love British humor (though most of the time, I have to go to the dictionary to figure out some of the words they use and other websites to understand the cultural references) and this Collection was just the ticket to a French and Saunder Marathon!

The DVD's show French and Saunders shows from 1988 to 2003. Amazingly, the years have not daunted the duo!

What's not to love about the queens of British comedy. The old chemistry is still at work here, better than ever.

Not the best but Ok to watch for a good laugh.
It is worth watching for a British Comedy ("dry" and "snobish - silly")
