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.
1. Deleted scenes (about 20 minutes)
2. Making of documentary also featuring the guest stars (about 12 minutes)
3. Bloopers (short)
4. Commentary track on all six episodes and the deleted scenes
5. Character playlist on each DVD
Episodes 1 to 3 are on disc #1, and episodes #4 to #6 and the Extras are on disc #2.
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.Read more ›
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.
