Have you ever thought about visiting Britain? Watch Little Britain and you might think again! Series Three of the ultimate catchphrase comedy sees the welcome return of some favorite characters including Lou and Andy, Marjorie and the Fat Fighters club, Sebastian Love and the Prime Minister, and trash-talk teenager Vicky Pollard. Some very interesting new faces are also introduced as well, such as Dudley, who buys a mail order bride from Thailand.
British comedy is often known for its menagerie of absurdities. Little Britain - The Complete Third Series upholds this tradition with the comedy genius of Matt Lucas and David Walliams, as they take it to up another notch in the third seasom. Little Britain has cultivated a devotion to the characters, listen carefully and you may hear the person next to you quoting "Yeah, but no, but yeah but
". Lucas and Walliams reveal them to us bit by bit, so we remain perplexed enough to imagine where they came from and what will eventually happen to them. We are dropped into the middle of their lives, and are lucky enough to observe them sorting things out. The episodes on this two-disc set are filled with returning favorites we get to know even better (whether we want to or not), as well as introducing new "Britons". We witness the insensitive and abusive Marjorie Daws, leader of Fatfighters weight loss support group, encouraging the group members to snack on "dust" because it has no calories. A returning favorite is Daffyd, the rotund, spandex-wearing, self proclaimed "only gay in the village", though life, his family, and the "homophobic" village repeatedly show him otherwise. New characters not to be missed include a lovely woman unable to control her bodily functions, a questionable mail order bride, and a rival for the spa resident Bubbles. Of course the sassiest narrator on television returns, spouting articulately, "Who They? What do? And why?" His banter is just another reason why visiting with the people of Little Britain is hilariously unforgettable. --Rachel Moss
