Simply Hilarious Feb. 9 2009
By libertarian_hammer - Published on Amazon.com
Coogan has done it again, in this very original suburban comedy. The rock humor and how he flip-flops or changes his belief system whenever it suits him is outstanding. The episodes with Coogan as the mod/emo kid Keanu Reeves are especially funny. What an original show!!

Smash the System! March 3 2012
By M.C. Hewins - Published on Amazon.com

Hilarious! I watched this over three times while it was available streaming over the past year. When it was no longer available to stream it became a must have purchase.

Steve Coogan has a unique comedic genius. He is a master of character acting, so much so that he has two roles in this show, and after four viewings I had never realized it till watching the extras! Neil Maclennan and Steve Coogan display remarkably convivial insight into the human psyche with each unique, funny and touchingly human character they created for the series.

I enjoyed Knowing Me, Knowing You with Alan Partridge - The Complete Series well enough, but I absolutely adore Saxondale. This show has immense replay value. With only 13 half hour episodes you can kick back and watch the whole show on a rainy day whilst you laugh yourself silly.

The show has genuine momentum. Each episode builds upon the humor from the last, by the final episode your stomach will ache from laughing at Tommy's rollicking antics. The only regret I have about this purchase is that its not available on Blu-ray. The DVD quality is acceptable, but you'll be laughing so hard that you won't notice that its not in HD.

This show is hilarious and filled with so many jokes about music, you wont get them all, but that's because Tommy is smarter than you... but is he?

Great British Comedy wish there were more episodes. Nov. 28 2011
By thomasterrible - Published on Amazon.com
I am buying this because it is about to no longer be available on Netflix. I have seen all the episodes more than once and still want it.

This as far as I can recall was my first exposure to Coogan. He is very believable in his roll.
I have since seen him in other roles such as Lies and Alibis and seeing him closer to his real self shows his acting ability is great. I now want to see his other comedies.

It does not hurt that my first car at age 16 was a yellow Mustang Mach One like he drives on the show. Though he does in error call it his Boss 351 which was a different car.

I don't know why this show only lasted two seasons. I think it is great. Must be something different about great British TV comedies. There are even fewer of the great series Fawlty Towers starring John Cleese. Oh well I guess we are luck to have what we do.

The start of each episodes anger management sessions are always a great start. His consistent mentioning of great 70's rock bands and attitude towards new music is humorous, and not all that off base IMO. If you are middle aged you can likely relate to many of his attitudes in the shows even if they are tinged British a bit. This is on Netflix but they said it was going get cancelled though still in my queue. Even so if they do I will be buying this set as it is the sort that you can watch multiple times and still find both the repeats humorous or catch new bits you may have missed in a previous viewing. If you can preview it in such a way that may prompt you to want to own the entire series. If not a member then I would certainly still risk it if you either like Coogan's work or Brit TV comedy in general as it is one of the best.

I was very convinced of Coogan's character Tommy on this show when I had not seen him yet. He does an very convincing job of believing in his character (and perhaps in some way relating to parts of it).

There are other characters that help fill out the show but Coogan is the stand out for sure. Several regulars and even saw one show featuring an actor that appeared in Harry Potter films.

There are a total of 13 episodes covering the two seasons and I only wish there were more. But it is the sort of thing that you can enjoy watching more than once as I have already done so and am still purchasing this.

I like Black Adder and the UK version of The Office and Wilfred (along with the US versions also) and this fits in with my tastes for British TV comedies.

This is one of my all time favorites so I find it hard to imagine anyone reading these reviews to get an idea of what it is about and not liking it after purchase.
