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.

BONUS DISC: CD of the music from Snuff Box!
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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›

I had to laugh just reading the reviews. Confusion punctuated with humor, as another reviewer mentioned, may sum it up quite well. Absurd, surreal...those fit, too. Read morePublished 20 days ago by P. Martin

Got it in a timely manner and in perfect condition.
As far as the show goes: If you haven't seen it, give it a go! You might love it as much as we do.

Love Matt Berry and was tickled to see this cult favorite TV show offered. I had searched for it when it went to DVD
and gave up until I found it on your site.
This is just fantastic. Grossly, darkly hilarious. The only complaint is that it was a one-off project and I'm only left with these six episodes for the rest of my life. Read morePublished 11 months ago by McChelisa

|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.
