Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The lewd, crude, and often nude humor of the smashingly successful British comedy series Little Britain has, thanks to HBO, made the cross-Atlantic trek--and fans around the world can rejoice. The brainchild of Brit comics Matt Lucas and David Walliams, Little Britain takes on American culture and peculiarities whilst keeping the signature Little Britain characters and savage point of view. "There are more fat people in America than there are people," the narrator solemnly drones, introducing a crazily hilarious (and borderline offensive) sketch about an overweight support group, guest-starring the big-boned American Rosie O'Donnell. No one is safe from the barbs of the writers, who trash fat people (often), gays (often), women, immigrants, disabled people, and, well, pretty much everyone else. The potty and cross-dressing humor is happily transplanted onto American soil, as is the preoccupation with overweight women and overly muscled gym rats and their naughty bits. Other targets include American gun owners, Brownie troops, and the American obsession with fitness. Extras include a too-short blooper reel, a making-of featurette, and a great series of audio commentaries by Lucas and Walliams, who crack themselves--and the viewer--up in the process. And that's a right kerfuffle. --A.T. Hurley

5.0 out of 5 stars Still very funny. November 8, 2008
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Little Britain, Big Laughs!! March 12, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars A pale copy of the very funny original May 27, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Little Britain, is, well - British. As a British sketch show it was extremely funny. Copying half of the material over with a pseudo-American spin and generating some embarrassing new material based on a shallow misunderstanding of what's really funny America just doesn't work. If you enjoy British television, just enjoy the original and let this one go.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old and new characters make this another great season December 18, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not litte Britain - more like little brain December 10, 2009
Format:DVD
I am a Brit in America, so I think I see both cultures pretty well. I love Little Britain - It is shocking but very very clever, it brutally, but intelligently breaks down all the British stereotypes. Not so this series - they forgot to be clever - all that's left is the crudity.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mostly a hit with a few misses... May 12, 2010
Format:DVD
I'm a big fan of the original Little Britain, so I was thrilled to hear that there was going to be a USA version of the series. After all, there's tons of culture here in the USA to parody & mock.

If you've seen the original series, then you know that the original series is comprised of several shorts, all of which frequently had reoccurring characters. Many of these characters make appearances in this show, some of which work & some of which do not.

The good part of this set is that it is funny. Some of the skits are fantastic, with my personal favorite being the ones with the dog owner. Others just aren't or are really only funny the first few times. The Ellie Grace skit was funny the first few times, but it was so incredibly repetitive that after a while it just wasn't all that funny.

The part that sort of disappointed me the most is that so much of it wasn't really even original to the USA series. Don't get me wrong- I love Little Britain & they bring over some of my favorite characters (Lou & Andy, Carol Beer). It's just that these seemed to be the majority of the series. These weren't bad strips for the most part, just not anything I couldn't see in the regular series. The only set that really wasn't all that funny was the Sebastian Love skit set. He's the Prime Minister in this series & it just doesn't work as well as it did when he was the assistant to the PM.

Overall, this is a decent set & it would make for a nice addition to the collection of any Little Britain fan. If you haven't seen the original series though, I recommend that you start with the inspiration for it all. It is far better than this is.
