I have to admit that I do agree with people's criticism that Season 3 of "LB" was not as funny as the previous 2. I didn't find the new characters they added terribly amusing, and sketches with the old favorites do tend to get a little repetitive. I've seen the episodes on BBC America, but I'm looking forward to hearing the episode commentary and deleted scenes. Having said that, I still think that there's enough laughs, giggles, and smiles in each episode to warrant purchasing this DVD. I'd kind of only recommend it for fans and purists... but please know that Matt Lucas and David Walliams' lesser work is still a million times funnier than a lot of drivel that we get here in the US.
Also, as for extras, that's a real enticement to get this DVD. UK fans were disappointed because they were all previously seen television clips. But they're treats and rarities for us US fans. Matt and David never disappoint when they appear on talk shows and such, so that's guaranteed laughs for you too! All in all, if you're a fan and you're considering getting this for yourself or a friend... I'd say "Computer says yes." :)
4 stars for the program material, but no stars for the format.
The back cover has tons of writing on it, but nowhere on it does it state HOW MANY EPISODES it contains! Well, only after unwrapping it, did I find out.
6 episodes at about 28 minutes each!!
6 episodes? In a tv "series"?!!! RIPOFF!!!
The outsides of the disks don`t even tell you which episodes are on which disks. Actually, the dvd outsides have NOTHING written on them!!
There is no episode menu. The only dvd to actually HAVE episodes doesn`t even have a "list of episodes." After putting a dvd into the dvd player, previews come on instantly, and you CANNOT SKIP THEM. Therefore, from the moment you insert the dvd into the player to the time an episode actually starts, it takes about 4-5 minutes. VHS is faster than this garbage.
Tape the season from tv. It`s only 6 episodes. The picture quality is pretty good. I`ve seen much better much more often.
Unfortunately, this wonderfully-written and acted program does not deserve this piece of trash formatting at all. It seems a 6-year old put this trash together....no wait. A 6-year old can do better. More likely a preschooler.
Stay away. Save your money.
"Yea, I know!"
Like many of its predecessors, it can be delightfully rude and edgy at times...
unlike other predecessors, the show does not hold back...
typical scenes include a women with an increasingly extreme bladder problem and just goes everywhere...
at least 5 gay/transvestite theme recurrent sketches (a closet gay prime minister, a politician who continually has to continually appear with his family and apologize and explain varying situations including "falling and accidentally landing inside someone" - - in another routine, the lead actors (guys of course) dressing up in grotesquely obese fat lady body suits (one is in black face) - - There is one other "fat" sketch... a Thai mail order bride (who turns out to be a lady boy) - - oh, and even gypsies and handicap are fair game...
Despite the series unabashed use of shock humor, the fact is however, that the show is well written and acted... even so to the extent that even the most obnoxious stuff is forgivable...
All in all, any show with a line like:
"My own mother rejects me simply for the crime of wanting men's torches in my bum bum..."
is a winner to me!
All this said, I like the show... but feel a downside is that a lot of the jokes are so recurrent you can see them coming from a mile away.... nonetheless, its hard not to watch... watch... and keep watching...
Though considered a "classic" by many, reviews of the show were initially mixed... like LEAGUE OF GENTLEMEN and KIDS IN THE HALL (from Canada) consider this a love it or hate it thing...If you like it, you'll probably be quoting the catch phrases for ages to come...
They've added a few new characters and a couple of the old ones are gone, but the show is basically still the same. This might not go down that well with the people that think "Little Britain" too monotonous, but I think it works. The changes and additions, small and subtle as they might be, adds just enough new flavour for it to be new and wonderful, but it is still "Little Britain" all the way. The humour is still just on the edge of what is acceptable for the general audience and sometimes maybe even beyond that, but without really being offensive. It takes a lot of skill pulling that off. Very good indeed.

Very very funny! If you are depressed, feeling down.. you cannot resist a laugh on Little Brit.
It is so hilariously inappropriate that you must sit back and enjoy.
I love Little Britain. I love it so much that when I ordered this DVD and it didn't work, I sucked it up and bought a new copy. Sadly, we can't get this DVD to work either. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Enterthedrew
