It s a combination of depraved sitcom about a pair of jovial hangmen and twisted sketch comedy ala Monty Python, filled with bad first dates, time travel, sex, whiskey, awkward moments, random beatings, snappy musical numbers, one very long white hall, rampant swearing and other pleasures. It s the show critics have called one the best kept secrets in the history of British comedy , now on DVD for the first time ever in America!

Berry and Fulcher; the most unsung comedy duo?

The first time I watched this I thought "This is pretty good stuff". Then I started showing it to friends... by the third time I watched the series I realized what I thought was bronze was most defiantly gold.

The comedy is dark and surreal, the content mature, and music is genius.

If your a fan of either Berry's work in 'Garth Merenghi's Darkplace' or Fulcher's Bob Fossil from the 'The Mighty Boosh'... then defiantly pick up this DVD.

*I have the R2 (British) version of this disc.

There are very few genuine no-brainers in life. Purchasing this item is one of them for people who like Snuff Box. If you are here reading this (unless you are mistakenly attempting to purchase an actual box to put snuff in) then you should just buy this item now. Actually, even if you ARE here looking to purchase an actual box to put snuff in, you should get this DVD anyway and perhaps it will change your life. Perhaps not, but it's $18 after all.

Yes. You've perhaps already worn a shiny groove in the Netflix server hard disk watching Snuff Box. Random access is the best solution for this as I find myself needing to watch odd episodes at random times. There is something strangely pleasant, reassuring and calming about Rich's slightly fey Tourette-inspired rants and Matt's exquisite smarminess. We return to the club again and again to share a quiet whiskey and smoke with them - and then Rich's redneck brother shows up, Matt archly dismisses another street corner conquest or his deaf brother buzzily corrects a misconception.

The DVD "set" (well.. it's 1) is a veritable treasure trove. There are audio commentaries from Rich and Matt on three episodes including 1 and 6. They are fun and funny. Lagers are opened and they don't take it quite seriously enough for me but there it is. There is an excellent walking tour of the shooting locations. I particularly enjoyed this as the last time I was in London (Fall '12) the wife and I went on the Street Art London walking tour which basically ends up in the exact same spot - a series of small streets and blind alleys around the old Truman Brewery complex just off Brick Lane. (I can't recommend that tour highly enough.

This series is genius, and gets better and better with subsequent viewings.

When I first saw it I had the same reaction many have - mild confusion punctuated by moments of humor. Thank goodness my love for Matt Berry and Rich Fulcher made me to persevere because as I kept watching I realized a brilliant, ridiculous world was building. The episodes became funnier and funnier as I was drawn into their delicious world of drunken sex, self-loathing, narcissism, absurdity, and violence. Phrases like "sketch comedy" don't adequately cover what this is. It might meet that definition technically but it's something much greater than that. It is a clever and tightly woven dark comedy universe with a first-rate soundtrack.

I've now watched the whole series from beginning to end many times. I love it.

If you enjoy dark humor, off-beat scenarios and extreme ludicrousness, Snuff Box is for you. As two whiskey drinking hangmen, Berry and Fulcher create a unique format of comedy that only an 11pm timeslot on BBC3 can produce. Many memorable lines litter the outrageous plotlines and hilarity ensues with each new "sketch". I personally love the musical touch that Berry brings to the show and it provides an entertaining and often hilarious bit of originality. For fans of any previous Fulcher or Berry production, Snuff Box is a must have for your collection. I cannot recommend Snuff Box any more highly. It is a treasure in the sea of mediocrity that is modern tv comedy.

Clark Douglas, DVD Verdict --I have to confess, I didn't laugh a whole lot during the first episode or two of Snuff Box (save for a hilarious little musical interlude about rapping with babies), as the show's rhythms took some getting used to and the humor certainly relies more on absurdity than on traditional punch lines. The actual jokes that are initially introduced aren't that remarkable in and of themselves, but Snuff Box somehow manages to make these mediocre jokes increasingly entertaining through the process of repetition. For instance, there's a little gag early on in which Matt spends a couple of minutes flirting with a pretty girl. However, at the second she mentions she has a boyfriend, he shouts an obscenity at her and engages in an act of minor destruction. It's chuckle-worthy at best, but somehow the joke gets funnier with each passing episode as Matt's behavior escalates (smashing a coffee mug is one thing; throwing a puppy across a parking lot is another).

Many of the gags are like that; long-form jokes that build steam over the course of the entire series. Also along these lines: Rich's trips back to the year 1888 (where Matt's ancestor offers him a variety of prostitutes to choose from on each occasion), Matt's visits to an ominous retail store (which always end in a beating of some sort), meetings of the British Board of Censors (in which the board laughs heartily at grotesque material until it goes just one notch too far) and Rich's insistence on ruining the punchlines of Matt's jokes.

What is included?
I know the initial release in the US included all of these things. I'm not sure if it was a 'first printing only' thing or if all copies include this stuff. I'd like to find out myself as I haven't bought it yet. Might have to search elsewhere, where more info about what I'm buying is given.
