From the team that did the sublime "Broken News" (sadly unavailable on DVD) and the more recent "Twenty Twelve" (a satirical look on our preparation for the Olympics) this is one of those shows that, though dated, still has much to say about modern TV's tendency to stretch to breaking for the sake of filling our airwaves.

You MUST listen as well as watch. You are rewarded for your effort.

Still Hilarious 18 July 2009
By Donald J. Lloyd - Published on
This 1999 scripted series consists of 12 full frame (wasn't filmed widescreen) episodes, about 30 minutes each. In USA was originally on BBC America. Chris Langham's character (unseen, but heard) interviews people in 12 occupations, featuring famous British actors such as Sarah Alexander, Bill Nighy and David (Dr. Who) Tennant. Unbelievably funny material which can be watched repeatedly. You don't have to be a fan of British humor to enjoy these episodes. Highly recommended for humor and originality.

At last available in the US! 1 Sep 2009

Those who love great British humor should rejoice at the release of this
fantastic series in the US! Unique fake documentaries with the world's
worst correspondent, who unfailingly upsets and misinterprets and gets in the
way of his subject! Repeated viewings only add to the joy of this wonderful series!
Stop reading and get it!

YES! YES! YES! 20 July 2009

Do you not know about the greatness that is People Like Us, one of the best comedy shows to come from the UK, though grossly under-seen and semi-forgotten thanks to more popular and similar shows like The Office? You're in for a wonderful surprise. Get this DVD, at $25 for the complete series is a steal. I got mine from the UK, and I paid twice as much which still is a reasonable price for twelve episodes of this great show. Buy it now. NOW. NOW!!!

For fans of: The Office, The Day Today, British shows with subtle, self-deprecating humor (or humour?).

Very Funny 8 Dec 2010
By Adrienne - Published on

Very droll, very funny. It is not slapstick, it is the use of language that makes it funny. Also, the narrator's voice is a beautiful baritone. Although what he says is silly, he is nice to listen to.
