Movie Reviews

Classic British Comedy!

"I finally purchased these as a Christmas gift for myself. If you are a fan of the "underground"-type shows or even the greats like Monty Python, you are likely to love these. The discs have spent more time in my DVD player than their cases. Very satisfying to watch again and again. If you've seen Dylan Moran's comedy act, hang on because this is where he goes well over the top. The humor is outlandish and sometimes a bit cruel, but absolutely brilliant! One of my favorite casts!"
Hilarious!

"I had never seen this show on TV, and came across rather accidentally by a youtube video of part of the first show. That little clip was so funny, I ordered the whole DVD set, sure that the whole thing was as funny as those few minutes.

I was right.

The actors are perfect, playing their characters with great energy and honesty. The characters are beautifully flawed, creating many opportunities for wonderful humor, sarcasm, and events going wrong. Though all the characters are flawed, and Black is in many ways a rather unlikable cad, I found myself caring for all them and wanting much more after watching the last episode.

For those who like British Comedy, especially some of the darker stuff, I recommend this series wholeheartedly.

I'm still laughing!"
Brilliant.

"I caught this show for it's short stint on comedy central and absolutely loved it. I had them all recorded on VHS but it was lost in the mix sometime ago. Last summer I took a trip to London and to my surprise it was available on the flight. After refreshing myself with how absolutely hysterical the show was, I found Series 1 and 2 on NTSC DVD. Unfortunately I was forced to download series 3 from a torrent since it currently isn't available on NTSC, only PAL. Coming from someone who usually downloads absolutely everything, this is a must own DVD for any one who is a fan of dark and dry comedy."
Infectious

"HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! This series is only for those that enjoy a good laugh. What's not to love about Dylan Moran and cast? That beautiful Irish accent alone is enough for me...Loses steam towards the end of series #2, but it still remains highly original and truly hilarious."
