This is a another great funny+edgy comedy season, getting a rejuvenating boost from the addition of new characters to the mix. As usual, six episodes are never enough - but then again, we don't want them to water it down just to have more episodes. I just hope there will be more Little Britain one way or another!

Almost all of the UK characters had a great "translation" to the HBO version, except for perhaps Sebastian who, in my opinion, did not quite click as Prime Minister. Most of the new US characters were funny, including the living-in-the-past astronaut, the hunters, and the Southern grand-ma. The Starbucks-within-a-Starbucks was very poignant.

Being on HBO was great for Little Britain USA as it allowed Matt and David to push the comedy envelope without fear of interference from jumpy executives on cable and network TV.

For new viewers, I recommend starting from the first UK season and watching them in sequence, so you can get a better feel of the characters.

Little Britain USA is a different kind of program from the usual Little Britain. When I was first introduced to the show, I was a little confused--"it seems like it is just the same two guys doing the same bunch of characters and...oh, I see now! Different skits and stories!" Once I was into the second episode of Little Britain's Season (series) One and began to 'get it' finally, I went back, watched episode one and then was hooked thereafter. The characters are always hilarious, and David Walliams and Matt Lucas never cease to amaze me with their creations, writing, and comedic talents. All that to say: Be sure to introduce yourself to the actual British version as well.

Now, in Little Britain USA there was one thing in the commentary that was said that I acknowledged watching the series: They wrote the series and re-wrote some of the characters to make it more "fitting" for a USA audience. That was not necessary at all. I loved the new "American" characters they've created, but was ever so happy to see Lou and Andy, Sebastian, Vickie Pollard, and Daffyd Thomas. My suggestion in the future is to write the show their way and NOT try to Americanize it. Lucas and Walliams are geniuses and need to just stick with doing it their way.

There are a few running storylines throughout the 6 episodes (I assume the series was cut short to 6 episodes as in Season Two the costumes took up a lot of budget). We're reintroduced to "Bitty" as a family with an overprotected infantile son visit their American Cousins, two HILL-arious bank robbers, and even funnier body builders. I love grandma and the grandson on the front porch having discussions. There are one-off jokes like the cop and his gun collection and hunters who go after "big" game.

After three UK series of this character comedy sketch show, plus a two part "overseas" special, this is the first series of the show set in the USA.

It is a mix of established characters, Americanised versions of UK characters, and entirely new characters. It continues to be very funny and very rude!

New hits are an ex astronaut living on his faded reputation, a foul mouthed schoolgirl and two over macho bodybuilders.

I have seen good reviews for this show, but I couldn't get past 5 minutes of it. Coming from an admirer of broad range of comedy from Monty Python to the Farrelly Brothers (well, some of the Farrelly Brothers' work), this is hard for me to write, but simply put, it's gross-out humor featuring uninteresting unsympathetic people engaging in horrible antics. No redeeming features whatsoever.

Insert this DVD into the player and sit back for a good evening of entertainment. Always funny, occasionally rude, crude and uncouth these characters are belly laughs and hysterical giggles. Don't miss this one but put the kids to bed first.

I am a huge fan of British comedies. I had watched the original series of Little Britain several years ago and enjoyed it very much. So when I saw that the first episode of Little Britain USA was free on Prime, I decided to take a look. Unfortunately, I did not feel the same about this version as I did about the original series. Maybe they thought they needed to be more rude, tacky and inappropriate since this was taking place in the USA. I watched the first episode in its entirety and felt that it was just too crass for my liking. You know, there are actual Americans who enjoy clever, witty humor. You do not need to be offensive in order to make people laugh. The writers need to go back to their roots and resurrect the comedic talent they were blessed with, as in the original series.
