This review is from: The Comic Strip Presents: The Complete Collection (DVD)
If you got mTV between 1980-1984, you caught these as BBC reruns in the States. They were awesome because SNL was in such a suck hole of humorless, lazy, coked out oblivion for a few seasons before Myers or Murphy bailed their asses out.
Plus, it was a Brit offering that picked up the ball from the 1970s Monty Python legacy. This ensemble had a completely different structure, context, and vision than Monty Python -- and a much better "batting average" with the ratio of sketch comedy hit-or-miss.
French and Saunders kick ass, and all the guys involved knock it out of the park consistently too -- especially in the Beatnik episode.
For an extremely rare collection available NO WHERE else really, not even the torrent world, or the deep net, or the dark net, the 20-40 bucks is well worth it.
