Little Britain: Season 1

It’s brilliant.  A little coarse at times, but Season 1 is brilliant.  I thought Season 2 was a little disappointing (more crude and less clever.)  Rent Season 1 and watch the season during your lunch breaks.

The fact that only two actors, Matt Lucas and David Walliams (not Williams), play 90% of the characters is incredible.  It took me about  2 or 3 episodes to confrim that I kept seeing the same two guys over and over.  My favorite characters:

  • Andy Pipkin (Martha thinks is just so charming when I imitate his voice) and his buddy Lou Todd.  Their interaction is so innocent and even though Andy has huge detailed reasons for not liking something, he rarely says more that 2 words.
  • Emily Howard is great because he is not a modern transvestite, but a turn of the century "lady".
  • Dennis Watermann.  "So they want me to star in it, write the feem toon, sing the feem toon..." Period.
  • Kenny Craig is interesting because he follows the Lincoln axium ,"You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time."

Rent it, watch it, laugh.
