I am so glad to see these gems released, and on NTSC as well! So many people have never seen the British version which is far funnier IMO. The skits and such varied, I don't think Film and Theater Styles was on the US version. We see some very talented people on the Brit show, Josie Lawrence is funnier than any women on the US version, as is Sandy Toksvig. All the Brits are quick witted with songs and skits. Ryan and Colin are always funny, but I prefer the Brits' humor. Tony Slattery is my personal fave, and I am so glad more Americans like me will see him, and note how cheekily clever he is as well as being a good singer. The overly hammy John Sessions is here in all his in-your-face glory. How I missed Paul's 'What's going on?" looks, and they are here! ( I still like him teamed up with a Tub of Lard, but that's a different show, which hopefully will be released someday). Watch him sweat trying to make up a song. Clive as the host is good, with the constant bald, no-neck jokes the guys throw at him. Sometimes Clive has to cover his face when he's about to lose it when things get out of control. Clive, Sandy, Tony, Josie, Paul, Steven, etc, all about to be rediscovered by a new continent! If you have only seen the US version, please buy this! The humor can be more cerebral (and at times much more naughty) than the US shows, but it's funnier that way. You'll discover a bunch of new friends on this show.
Buy this if you have not seen the British version, you'll probably be join the majority who like it better. And I'm a Yank!
