Product Description

Little Britain USA (DVD)

One of the most successful British comedies of all time is coming to America! Meet Matt Lucas and David Walliams, who are bringing their smash hit Little Britain stateside with the all-new HBO series Little Britain USA. The series will feature familiar Lucas/Walliams personas from their original show, as well as new characters created expressly for this series. In addition, Little Britain USA will feature guest appearances including Paul Rudd, Rosie O'Donnell, Hayden Pantierre, and Sting.

The lewd, crude, and often nude humor of the smashingly successful British comedy series Little Britain has, thanks to HBO, made the cross-Atlantic trek--and fans around the world can rejoice. The brainchild of Brit comics Matt Lucas and David Walliams, Little Britain takes on American culture and peculiarities whilst keeping the signature Little Britain characters and savage point of view. "There are more fat people in America than there are people," the narrator solemnly drones, introducing a crazily hilarious (and borderline offensive) sketch about an overweight support group, guest-starring the big-boned American Rosie O'Donnell. No one is safe from the barbs of the writers, who trash fat people (often), gays (often), women, immigrants, disabled people, and, well, pretty much everyone else. The potty and cross-dressing humor is happily transplanted onto American soil, as is the preoccupation with overweight women and overly muscled gym rats and their naughty bits. Other targets include American gun owners, Brownie troops, and the American obsession with fitness. Extras include a too-short blooper reel, a making-of featurette, and a great series of audio commentaries by Lucas and Walliams, who crack themselves--and the viewer--up in the process. And that's a right kerfuffle. --A.T. Hurley

I remember little about the original series except for the bits of the guy who insists on being, "the only gay in the village, " but I thought I would give this one a shot. At first I thought it was just alright but I did note that, while I didn't laugh any at the first episode, I found, at the end, I had been smiling the whole time. Cleverly, the first episode was just a set up of the different characters, for what was to come in subsequent shows. There is a great arc in humor, with each episode building on the last and becoming more and more hysterical as I got what was going on. I will give a bit away in telling that some of these people are: the British Prime minister who has a crush on President Obama, the obnoxious hospital receptionist who drives everyone to frustration by refusing to do her job, the psychotic dog walker who gets herself into trouble with the police by imagining her dog is telling her to do illegal things, the man who visits his southern grandmother who turns out to be quite the perv, and the politician trying to explain away, to the press, various sex scandals, while his wife stands mum by his side. The opening introduction to each episode is different so be sure to listen and each has a surprise guest person. The live audience sequences are directed by David Schwimmer and the voice overs, done by Tom Baker, sound for all the world like Patrick Stewart. Great fun, actually, in spite of my first impression. Do at least two whows before you make up your mind. Well, I must be off, as I have a lot of lady things to do (you will get that later).

I am British myself so I am likely to be a little biased. However, these two guys are a riot in some things they do, but in this Little Britain series things are a little repetitive each time. But if you can get to see it on Amazon or Netflix it won't cost you anything. The series is good, but a little coarse in places. Best to watch them one a week.

I love this series better than cupcakes.....better than butterflies... better than....ah' you have to watch to get this joke.
The show is so ridiculous it's hilarious and well worth watching for some very silly fun when you do not want to watch something but do not want to get into a complex drama or story.

This is a another great funny+edgy comedy season, getting a rejuvenating boost from the addition of new characters to the mix. As usual, six episodes are never enough - but then again, we don't want them to water it down just to have more episodes. I just hope there will be more Little Britain one way or another!

Almost all of the UK characters had a great "translation" to the HBO version, except for perhaps Sebastian who, in my opinion, did not quite click as Prime Minister. Most of the new US characters were funny, including the living-in-the-past astronaut, the hunters, and the Southern grand-ma. The Starbucks-within-a-Starbucks was very poignant.

Being on HBO was great for Little Britain USA as it allowed Matt and David to push the comedy envelope without fear of interference from jumpy executives on cable and network TV.

For new viewers, I recommend starting from the first UK season and watching them in sequence, so you can get a better feel of the characters.

Little Britain USA is a different kind of program from the usual Little Britain. When I was first introduced to the show, I was a little confused--"it seems like it is just the same two guys doing the same bunch of characters and...oh, I see now! Different skits and stories!" Once I was into the second episode of Little Britain's Season (series) One and began to 'get it' finally, I went back, watched episode one and then was hooked thereafter. The characters are always hilarious, and David Walliams and Matt Lucas never cease to amaze me with their creations, writing, and comedic talents. All that to say: Be sure to introduce yourself to the actual British version as well.

Now, in Little Britain USA there was one thing in the commentary that was said that I acknowledged watching the series: They wrote the series and re-wrote some of the characters to make it more "fitting" for a USA audience. That was not necessary at all. I loved the new "American" characters they've created, but was ever so happy to see Lou and Andy, Sebastian, Vickie Pollard, and Daffyd Thomas. My suggestion in the future is to write the show their way and NOT try to Americanize it. Lucas and Walliams are geniuses and need to just stick with doing it their way.

There are a few running storylines throughout the 6 episodes (I assume the series was cut short to 6 episodes as in Season Two the costumes took up a lot of budget). We're reintroduced to "Bitty" as a family with an overprotected infantile son visit their American Cousins, two HILL-arious bank robbers, and even funnier body builders. I love grandma and the grandson on the front porch having discussions. There are one-off jokes like the cop and his gun collection and hunters who go after "big" game.
