From the slacker who casually informs his ex-girlfriend that he's now the King of Spain (he's got a business card that says so -- see?) to the lady whose wardrobe choices leave her husband gasping, to that MINOR incident of cannibalism, these sketches will often leave you gasping for breath, limp with laughter, and more than once with your jaw on the floor.
God knows the cast helps -- to most Americans, Nick Frost will be the most familiar name, but by the time you finish the second disc, you will have become a firm fan of his colleagues here; Nick Burns, Meredith McNeill, Amanda Abbington, and the wonderful double act of Daisy Haggard and Ben Crompton, whose timing and inflections are truly exquisite.
Another great extra here are the episode commentaries -- sometimes to the point, more than once wandering off onto tangents. At some point or another, the entire cast, as well as director Ric Cantor and the series producer Ash Atalla, participate, and their sometimes-prickly, often riotous interaction demonstrates that the hilarity of this show was no fluke -- this is the work of seriously funny people . . .
Not much more to say. If you like funny shows, buy this. It's worth it. And in retrospect, only doing two seasons (or series) can be good, because a show can stay good, and not end up jumping the shark, like so many of our beloved American sitcoms.
Many of the other cast members, those who might not be too recognizable by name, are, however, recognizable by their many other appearances in other British comedies.
I highly recommend this show.
Each episode is a compilation of random (and quite short) comedic situations where the actors always play different characters. You can watch these in any order you want - there's no storyline to worry about.
It's definitely worth having in your comedy collection.

I feel as though it is an acquired taste, but if you like "stupid funny", then it's hilarious. It's different, but great, not for everyone though.Published 21 months ago by Tiffany
