  2. I anxiously awaited viewing this show on DVD, for the idea of an overweight guy in tight-fitting latex thinking he is the only gay in his village struck my funny bone. I am a fan of Britcoms: Patricia Routledge’s Hyacinth Bucket antics from “Keeping Up Appearances, Edina and Patsy boozing it up on “AbFab”, Mrs. Slocomb’s colored hair and “cat” comments from “Are You Being Served” and the guys from Red Dwarf have all brought me many laughs over the years. However, after watching twenty minutes of the first DVD of Little Britain, I had to turn it off, for I had not once chuckled, and the skit that I thought would be funny (latex gay guy) was not in the least bit amusing. Canada’s Kids in the Hall did drag…and they did it much better and did it funny. The two guys of this show deserve credit for trying to create something fun, but for this viewer, the experience was a disappointment. I am a big fan of America’s Strangers With Candy, and I am sure there is a Brit who has seen this show(let alone another American) who thought that it was not funny. I don’t think my not enjoying Little Britain has to do with having an American sense of humor…I just don’t think the show is funny or original.

  3. As a Brit living in America I occasionally buy British comedy on DVD….loved “the office” and the “league of gentlemen” but little Britain has to be the unfunniest show I have ever seen,I did not laugh once through this drivel,even whilst downing some “old speckeld hen” pale ale as an aid! 0 stars would be my rating,I am going to give my copy to the local library rather than throw it away,save your money!

  4. When I watched the first episode of ‘Little Britain’ I laughed out loud. The characters were hilarious and the sketch ideas were original and off-the-wall.

    Then came the second episode – same sketches, slight variation. Then the third – same thing. By the fourth, I knew exactly what to expect.

    Too bad, because other U.K. shows to which ‘Little Britain’ owes a debt of inspiration – ‘The Fast Show’ (aka ‘Brilliant!’) and ‘The League of Gentlemen’ – successfully managed to mine fresh comedy from recurring characters.

    Still, familiarity isn’t such a bad thing. The show is consistently humorous — just repetitively so.

  5. I like a lot of British humor, but this is not very good. It reminds me (a lot) of Mad TV, in that the jokes are obvious and lame–it lacks the subtlety, intelligence and wit of shows like Ali G or The Office. The humor is based on recurring characters who are not inherently funny, and the same jokes are repeated from episode to episode. I’m not sure what the other reviewers saw in this, but then again I don’t know why people like Mad TV. This is really not worth buying.
