If you like British comedy, you'll love French and Saunders, but don't buy both collections unless you like duplicates!

The French and Saunders Collections I and II both contain the same four DVDs: "The Ingenue Years, "Living in a Material World, "Gentlemen Prefer French & Saunders," and "At the Movies."

With Collection II you get, in addition, "On the Rocks" and "Back with a Vengence."

Hope this saves you time and disappointment.

Ironically, this collection was available in North America before it was the in UK.

French and Saunders (F&S) are one of Britain's best comedy teams.

They've worked together since the 1980s and are each known for singular success in a BBC comedy (French - The Vicar of Dibley; Saunders - Absolutely Fabulous.)

The DVDs are "best of" selections from each series (what we in the US call a season) of shows. Each DVD contains special programming (holiday specials, etc.) The extra specials are well worth the price of the set.

F&S are best known for their movie parodies, "white room" sketches, imitations of well known celebrities, and music video parodies.

French & Saunders are a brilliant comic duo. This set is all the best of their wit, poking fun where it's needed most and total nuttiness. Gotta love those British gals and their side splitting antics. I don't enjoy viewing many things more than once, but this program is repeatedly funny (which is why I purchased it in the first place). I continue to catch things I hadn't the first time around and always end the DVD with a sore belly (from cracking up that is, not gorging myself with snacks). What was that sound?.....oh, it was just my busting gut.

"...age cannot wither their stale and infinite variety." Endlessly amusing! If only this collection were comprehensive and included EVERYTHING F&S. Alas, we can only content ourselves with these meagre compilations, hilarious as they are. A MUST HAVE for anybody that has ever enjoyed British Comedy, or enjoys laughter.

I really enjoyed the DVD set. Some comedy is for the English audience but most of it should be understandable by everyone who loves good comedy.

I loved this!! It is great to be able to see a collection of French and Saunders finest work in Australia, where we often miss out on a lot of overseas things. Particularly brilliant are the Titanic and Lord of the Rings spoofs, with appearances from my favourite characters, the prop designers!! Also includes a lot of old favourites like Jackie and Leanne and plenty from the 'extras' ladies!! Overall I loved it and would recommend it to any fan who wants a laugh.

As the title of my review states, hilarious! I love British humor (though most of the time, I have to go to the dictionary to figure out some of the words they use and other websites to understand the cultural references) and this Collection was just the ticket to a French and Saunder Marathon!

The DVD's show French and Saunders shows from 1988 to 2003. Amazingly, the years have not daunted the duo!

I had never realized that French and Saunders had been a team. I thoroughly enjoyed their antics and was reminded of many things about the times they mirror. I have been a fan of Dawn French since the first time I saw her on screen, and now watch once more for Saunders as well. Even though I had been ignorant of their work for a long time, I found their humor fresh and at times, biting (more funny to me), and also was surprised at times by the specific things they chose to limn for the audience. How delightful for me to see things through a different perspective. Also how nice to realize that women have been successful for longer than I realized in comedy.
