Product Description

All six episodes from Season 2, plus the Millennium Special, of the BBC sitcom that follows the ongoing chaotic adventures of over-the-top tart Lynda La Hughes (Kathy Burke) and perenially lonely gay guy Tom Farrell (James Dreyfus) - who happen to share both a London flat and a yearning lust for whatever luckless man happens to cross their paths. Episodes are: 'Millennium Special', 'Teacher's Pet', 'Stiff', 'Prison Visitor', 'Dirty Thirty', 'Glad to Be Gay?' and 'Sofa Man'.

From Amazon.co.uk

Gimme, Gimme, Gimme took situation comedy to new peaks of vulgarity when it returned for a third and final series in 2001, thanks to the full-on performances of James Dreyfus (Tom) and Kathy Burke (Linda) who suck up Jonathan Harvey's innuendo-laden scripts and spit them out like a couple of thespian tornados. "I don't think anything could relax my lips, baby," leers Burke, milking the endless supply of double entendres. "Mind you, after a couple of vodkas they're usually flapping around like flip-flops."

Tom's descent into self-parody--when he looks in the mirror, he sees the new Noel Coward--can have only one logical conclusion: the offer of a bit-part in Crossroads which eventually splits up this dysfunctional friendship. Sex-crazed Linda is deluded beyond all reason--when she looks in the mirror, she sees Catherine Zeta Jones--and here we finally get some insight into the reasons behind her grotesque traits: visits from her old Borstal wing governor (the excellent Ann Mitchell, sending up her Widows character), and the long-lost son she gave up for adoption.

Like all successful comedy, Gimme, Gimme, Gimme has its dark side. It also becomes increasingly surreal as the episodes pass: Tom fails miserably in a walk-on role in a conceptual Japanese drama presented in a fire station; and Linda turns the back garden into a campsite. Sophisticated it isn't, but it's often wickedly hilarious and occasionally brilliant.

On the DVD: Gimme, Gimme, Gimme is presented in standard 14:9 format with a stereo soundtrack, replicating the sitcom viewing experience. Apart from the episode index, there are no extras. At the very least biographies of Harvey, Burke and Dreyfus would have been useful. --Piers Ford --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The second and best series of Gimme Gimme Gimme should rank among TV's hall of great comedy moments. Burke and Dreyfuss are never better than they are here, delivering all of the jokes with perfect chemistry and timing.
I'm delighted to hear that this DVD also includes the special episode, 'Millennium'. This is one of the series' funniest, and it basically consists of Linda and Tom spending a New Years Eve alone in the flat. But Burke and Dreyfuss are so fantastic and their characters so well defined that it works brilliantly. The series proper gets going with 'Teacher's Pet', an hysterical episode featuring Elaine Lordan's return as Linda's sister, Sugar. Watch out for some side-splitting scenes with Linda and a doll. 'Stiff' is a great episode involving Linda and Tom trying to make sense of a strange occurrence. 'Prison Visitor' features Phil Daniels in a brilliant guest role as an ex-con. 'Dirty Thirty' is simply fantastic, and Tom's parents are an absolute riot. 'Glad To Be Gay?' is, in my humble opinion, the best ever episode of the series. Moya Brady guests stars in this masterpiece episode of British comedy. 'Sofa Man' is not quite up to the standards of the other episodes but is still hysterical, featuring possibly James Dreyfuss' best performance as Tom.
It's hard to fault this series. Buy it, keep it, treasure it forever. You'll laugh so much it'll hurt!

If you liked the first and third series of Gimmie Gimmie Gimmie, then this Dvd is a must buy! Credit as always goes out to the fantastically funny James Dreyfus and Kathy Burke who star as camp flatmates Tom and Linda,but full credit goes to the brilliant creator and writer Jonathan Harvey.
Episodes include DIRTY THIRTY where Tom finds out his mum and dad are swingers.STIFF the dead body in the coffin and who can forget the episode PRISON VISITOR where Linda sits on the rubber ring lol.I laughed so much I could hardly get my words out.
The beauty of the Gimmie series is that you will still be laughing days or even weeks later. BUY IT!!!!!!

Format: DVD
Gimme, Gimme, Gimme; starring the wonderful duo of Kathy Burke and James Dreyfus is one of the most original comedies to start off the millennium. Originally debuting in January 1999, the show caused much controversy from the very beginning for its crude language, constant innuendos and the stereotypical depiction of homosexuality with Dreyfus' character of Tom Farrell. Because of the controversy surrounding it, you would be forgiven for thinking that this wouldn't last longer than the first series, but this show became a massive success winning numerous comedy awards.

The premise of the show focuses around two unlikely flatmates, Tom and Linda. Tom is an untalented aspiring actor condemned to being an extra in soaps and adverts, whilst Linda is an aggressive, man hungry idiot with no ambition whatsoever. Throughout the series we become associated with their neighbours, Jez & Suze and their landlord Beryl. It features a number of spontaneous laugh out loud moments during episodes such as Tom getting married and Linda constantly trying to steal Jez from Suze.

There are some spectacular situations which make the show wholly enjoyable, but if you're easily offended then this isn't really for you. There are times when even I think they take it too far especially involving the anecdotal segments when Linda is talking about her childhood which imply that she had a life of child abuse and even hints at more dark humour in relation to said abuse, but I wont go into that. As much as I think everything is fair game for comedy, there is still a limit and trying to make a joke of child abuse just isn't right.

Discovered this show on BBCAmerica but they only were showing the last few episodesof the last season. Am so glad I found this DVD. All the characters are hilarious from Beryl, the over aged ex-hooker landlady to Jez and Suze, the horny neighbors, and of course the main characters Tom and Linda. This is outrageous and so much fun. Have watched it several times and keep catching things I missed on the first few go rounds. Excellent series.

This is without a doubt the funniest of the 3 series.
Brilliantly funny, completely UN-politically correct and filthy.
One of the best and underated comedies of the last 5 years.
7 episodes including the Millenium special (which starts with a very funny dream party sequence with a cameo by Melinda Messenger!).
The only criticism - no extras! I would love to have seen out-takes from this series (there are no extras on any of the DVD's).

I have to say that it is about time that the second, and certainly the best, series is released on DVD. I first caught Gimme Gimme Gimme on re-runs while on a working holiday in the UK. It was the second episode of series one, and I remember it being a hoot, had me hooked from then. When the second series came around I was very excited. The writing is better, the lines delivered with more gusto and the supporting cast more involved. The Prison Visitor episode would have to be one of the funniest sitcom episodes ever written. So well acted. All I can say is, buy this series it is well worth it. Well it will be once it has been released.
