The first two series of "The League of Gentlemen" were fantastic, but it's the third that elevates the show into cult history. The bloody, demented sitcom is now a series of six short films, all linked together by the fatal car accident that ends each episode.
The third series sees the return of fan favorites like Pauline, the monstrous restart officer with a passion for pens; Geoff Tipps, the squat, gun-toting businessman with the world's shortest fuse; Charlie and Stella, a bitter, bickering couple with an invisible daughter, Julie; and even Papa Lazarou, one of television's scariest villians, who kidnaps local women and forces them to travel with him as part of his sideshow. We're also introduced to new characters like aspiring magician Dean Tavalouris, Dr. Carlton, a physician who loves child's party games, and Keith Drop, the Charity Shop's new clerk with a sinister secret. Car bombs and kidnappings, a prosthetic arm with a mind of its own, beauty pagaents, an invincible car called Maxie Power- the third series of "The League of Gentlemen" is darker, sicker, more twisted than the two that came before. Highly recommended for fans of black humor.
