(REAL NAME)   
 
The League of Gentlemen - Complete Collection [DVD] [1999]
1.  The League of Gentlemen - Complete Collection [DVD] [1999] DVD ~ Mark Gatiss
The list author says:
  "Top marks. The League consistantly deliver top notch twisted satire on the human (and not so human) condition."
£11.20   Used & New from: £5.62
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (160 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Human Remains [DVD] [2000]
2.  Human Remains [DVD] [2000] DVD ~ Rob Brydon
The list author says:
  "Rob Brydon and Julia Davis define dysfunctional relationships in this truly exceptional series of character studies."
£4.30   Used & New from: £2.99
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (49 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

15 Storeys High - Series 1 (6 episodes) [DVD] [2002]
3.  15 Storeys High - Series 1 (6 episodes) [DVD] [2002] DVD ~ Sean Lock
The list author says:
  "Everyone says it, but it's true: this show is highly underrated. A must see. Praise the BBC for giving Lock a second series, but the first is the better of the two."
£1.73   Used & New from: £0.98
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (23 customer reviews)

Jam: The Complete Series [DVD] [2000]
4.  Jam: The Complete Series [DVD] [2000] DVD ~ Christopher Morris
The list author says:
  "Anything by Chris Morris is great, but in Jam he is at his darkest and, some would argue, best."
£19.99   Used & New from: £1.91
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (73 customer reviews)

Garth Marenghi's Darkplace [DVD] [2004]
5.  Garth Marenghi's Darkplace [DVD] [2004] DVD ~ Matt Holness
The list author says:
  "I don't know anyone who's seen this who hasn't liked it. Eighties TV horror spoof at it's finest."
£6.10   Used & New from: £4.11
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (178 customer reviews)

Marion & Geoff - Series 1 [DVD] [2000]
6.  Marion & Geoff - Series 1 [DVD] [2000] DVD ~ Rob Brydon
The list author says:
  "Who'd have thought a show with one character and a fixed camera could be so damn good? Ten minute slices of fried gold."
£5.50   Used & New from: £0.33
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (27 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Catterick [DVD] [2004]
7.  Catterick [DVD] [2004] DVD ~ Morwenna Banks
The list author says:
  "Reeves and Mortimer redefined sketch comedy in the ninties, and now they've done the same thing to the sitcom. At least I think you can call Catterick a sitcom. Whatever it is, it's a little gem."
£6.15   Used & New from: £2.27
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (41 customer reviews)

Nighty Night - Series 1 [DVD]
8.  Nighty Night - Series 1 [DVD] DVD ~ Julia Davis
The list author says:
  "You've got to hand it to Julia Davis for creating the least likable character in comedy history. Occasionally stretches believability, but still a very good series."
£6.00   Used & New from: £1.48
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (77 customer reviews)

Monkey Dust - Series 1 [DVD] [2003]
9.  Monkey Dust - Series 1 [DVD] [2003] DVD ~ Morwenna Banks
The list author says:
  "Animated sketch comedy. Like any sketch show it's a little hit and miss, but fortunately the hits are like little shots of nitrous oxide."
£4.35   Used & New from: £1.05
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (50 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

The Mighty Boosh : Complete BBC Series 1 & 2 [DVD] [2004]
10.  The Mighty Boosh : Complete BBC Series 1 & 2 [DVD] [2004] DVD ~ Noel Fielding
The list author says:
  "Yes, it's the Boosh! It's strange, it's funny, and it's becoming damn popular. For good reason too. Check it out."
Used & New from: £0.38
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (82 customer reviews)
