5.0 out of 5 stars Excellently produced DVDs loaded with extras December 1, 2007
Format:DVD
If you're looking at this product page, you've likely seen "Little Britain," so I'll skip reviewing this brilliant and hilarious show and instead address the DVDs themselves. This box set includes all three series of "Little Britain," plus the "Little Britain Live" and "Little Britain Abroad" specials. All of these DVDs are excellently produced and must-haves for fans of this program. The picture and sound are phenomenal, but best of all are the extensive extras.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Masters of the Running Gag October 7, 2005
Format:DVD
After two highly successful seasons and a DVD release in Britain, BBC is finally giving us Americans the home version of the `less refined' nature of the British population. Not all "tea and crumpets" this or "jolly good" that, this comedy sketch series brings us two actors who morph into a myriad of more than one hundred and twenty different characters -- all who would give the Queen heart palpitations and are guaranteed to bring laughter to your living room. Although still foreign to most Americans these characters and their infectious catch phrases are already imbedded in the British lexicon. The whole show relies heavily on these character catch phrases and scenes full of running jokes repeating and trumping themselves in different contexts -- much similar to how real British `characters' act in real life just personified and embellished here by the amazingly diverse Matt Lucas and David Willams. Just reading the lines, situations, descriptions, and catch phrases won't do much for you. It's Matt and David's ability to bring these characters to life that will leave you laughing and repeating the lines with your friends. Walk into a pub, or grammar school, or store in Britain and you'll certainly hear many of them repeated. Share this series with your friends and you'll have a whole new vocabulary to share. A selection of characters follows:

"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?

5.0 out of 5 stars And Now For Something Completely Different December 16, 2007
By Railgun
Format:DVD
It's true the humor in Little Britain is not for everyone. The skits range from "rude" bodily fluids spewing to some quite clever site gags. Skits are hit and miss - some being hilarious and some just lame. Everyone will have their favorite characters (mine being Lou and Andy, Daffyd, Vicky, and Bubbles).

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.

Too funny for words, I have watched them on BBC America and seen a few of the discs included in this collection, which I have on backorder. These clowns are the funniest thing I have ever seen. My husband and I don't understand half of what is being said due to the sometimes quite thick accents and references to humorous things we don't understand in America, nonetheless, this is hilarious and you will be hooked on it quickly! Excellent gift for someone with an offbeat sense of humor (there are some quite risqe scenes at times, not really for the younger kids to watch).
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.!!!!!

Everything's a bit too over the top.
It probably would have helped were I not American, but I found it hard to follow and its important references too obscure.

I just think this show is hilarious! It took a minute to get what they were doing. But it is definitely one of my favorite shows. It's basically light hearted social satire. Read more

A bit over the top for some but for me (a non-Brit.) a good dose of in your face and abstract satire.....
