Each DVD set includes episode commentaries from stars Matt Lucas and David Walliams, deleted scenes, interviews, talk show appearances, behind-the-scenes documentaries, and more. The included documentaries aren't the short featurettes found on many DVDs, but instead feature-length specials (often 60 min. long) that show what goes into creating the show for TV or stage. Particularly entertaining are the documentaries about the making of the live show (on the "Little Britain Live" DVD) and the live show's tour of Australia (on the "Little Britain Abroad" DVD). Walliams and Lucas are endlessly entertaining when not on stage, and there's a consistent stream of guest stars in the documentaries. In short, this set is highly recommended for fans of Emily, Vicky, Ann, Des, Lou, Sebastian and the rest.
"I want that one."
Not-so-wheelchair-bound Andy, and his long-suffering, volunteer caregiver Lou are the favorite characters of many. Although the formula for their running gag is always predictable, that's the point. Will Andy ever learn Lou knows what he wants better than he does himself? Will Lou ever stop enabling Andy' s strange whims? Will Lou ever discover Andy doesn't need the wheelchair Lou's been pushing all these years?Read more ›
For USians, the fact you can't understand half of what is being said makes it even funnier. Of course, there are references and cameos we won't get either but it doesn't detract too much - get a friend from the UK to fill you in. But cameos from celebrities like Elton John and George Michael are great. Having visited the UK at least once will help give you a frame of reference for a lot of the characters.
Little Britain definitely comes from the school of Benny Hill and Monty Python. Anyone raised on those shows should feel right at home. And refreshing to those of us in the US who loathe political correctness - this is stuff that would never pass US censors, even if it did, no major network would touch it with a 100' pole for fear of threats of boycotts (OK, maybe FOX would air it). I can't imagine a US show having a character like Desiree DeVere and the backlash it would cause.
Being able to get Little Britain on DVD is one of the good things about globalization. Hopefully the days of being able to choose what we want to see instead of having some corporate suit or politician choose it for us are not far off.
Anyone, if you are a fan of British comedy - this is a must to see.
UPDATE: All discs watched (with english subtitles, that helps a lot!), and we are now watching for the 2nd time around! This is the best money you will ever spend on dvds... family and friends have borrowed the dvds and everyone who borrowed a dvd has ended up ordering the set for themselves. Amazingly funny - nothing like it here in the U.S.!!!!!

Very funny for those with a bit of a sick mind...Especially good if you're in a very silly mood. 😁
I recommend "most" of the sketches....
The humor of Little Britain ranges from super hilarious to painfully awkward. I tried to give it less stars but computer said no.Published 9 days ago by Chalcopyrite
