This review is from: The Ricky Gervais Show: Season 1 (DVD)
I absolutely love this DVD. I don't have HBO so I did not know anything about this show until I purchased it. I loved it so much that I can't wait to forget it enough to watch it again. I just did not want it to end, so goggled for the original podcast. There are some on YouTube and they are funny too but the animation really makes it better. I feel bad when I laugh at the round headed buffoon in real life but when he is animated I don't feel bad about laughing. I love adult cartoons but not the X-rated kind and good stuff is not easy to come by. Some of the characters are drawn like the Flintstones and it is so funny. Ricky Gervais head is shaped like Barney Rubble's and his mouth moves the same way. The use of colors is wonderful and crisp. The use of the British language is so great; it is hard to believe they're speaking English. I wonder if they have a hard time understanding Americans. You will not be sorry for this purchase it is the best! I am going to buy each and every one of these they release. HBO has another funny animation called Tim..., sorry I forget. I bought that one too and it is another good one. Way to go HBO! Two great animation shows, please keep them coming!
