4.0 out of 5 stars Good...ish 7 Aug 2005
Format:DVD
Firstly let me say, this is very funny, but there is a massive drawback to the DVD that may make u not want to buy this. Lucas and Walliams couldnt get clearance on the music videos that used to run on the tv. Now for newcomers to the show, I am sure ur response will be "SO?!"
To those that were there from the beginning this means none of Walliams dressed up as Lou Reed (Which spun off to Lou and Andy in Little Britain) wishing everyone "a perfect day, Thir (sic) or Lucas dressed as Jo Whiley, ranting about Abba gettin a rock profile before bands who just released their first album, another band just done their first tour, another just done there first gig last night, then a band she just made up.
Not forgettin the silly captions running down the bottom of the screen, these i thought were hilarious.
I found this abit of a let down to be honest.

3.0 out of 5 stars Read this before you buy! 30 Sep 2005
Format:DVD
I recently bought Rock Profile which I think is brilliant and had enjoyed watching way back when it was on UK Play. However, I have to say I am so disappointed as there is no music clips in any of the interviews! For me, that definitely made it, the hilarious contrast between their take off and the real thing, sometimes not that different! Of course the interviews are still there but its just not the same without the music....

2.0 out of 5 stars Where's Ronan?!? 6 Aug 2005
Format:DVD
Far funnier than the repetitive Little Britain, however this DVD collection is annoyingly incomplete. The artist videos from the original series have not been included and so the short sketches that played over them are also absent. This means that the hilarious Ronan Keating part is missing. I feel slightly duped.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dont expect too much... 13 Aug 2005
By DJ Bez
Format:DVD
I was a fan of Rock Profile right from Day 1, when it first aired on the then ONdigital UK Play channel, R.I.P. To anyone who 'knows' music, it was hilarious, and even bands I utterly detest such as Wham! and Bucks Fizz were made watchable by the hilarious pop-up voice overs and silly facts over the sometimes awful promo vids.
Now, on the front of this DVD, it states 'ALL 26 EPISODES'. On the back, in 6pt text, it states 'Some cuts have been made for contractual reasons'. I dont understand exactly how the PRS system works, but it would seem you can basically do what you want on TV and Radio under a block fee royalty agreement, but not with publically sold recordings. This has previously completely prevented the release of utter comedy classics such as Victor Lewis-Smith's 'TV Offal' and 2 series of Peter Baynhams radio serial 'The Harpoon'
To cut a long story short, 'some cuts' means EVERY SINGLE PROMO VIDEO has been deleted, as the pair almost embarrassingly state in the newly recorded intro - thanks for telling us once weve bought it!. This makes some bits just as funny, but renders many woefully meaningless, the most obvious being 'The Prodigy', since the joke was the whole ep. is filmed outside Keith Flints house because he wont let them in. All we hear is about 10 seconds of 'Keiths' voice over the entryphone at the start, the rest is occupied with 2 unfunny stalker type fans who turn up. And as there are no Prodigy videos, it might as well be the Rock Profile for the White Stripes!
From a technical point of view, on DVD 1 (Series 1) the loud 'stings' presumably inserted to hide the lack of multitrack sound masters (i.e hide the bits of edited out vids fading out over the start of talking scenes) make it harsh to watch too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great series, disappointing DVD 20 Aug 2005
By Dr K
Format:DVD
Having seen most of the profiles on UK play and finding them hilarious, was thrilled when this was released. Soon to be hugely disappointed though. Much of the funniest bits missing, particularly all the videos with the ridiculously funny faux soundbite captions. 'Shaun Ryder invented the toaster'etc. has its moments but can't help feeling this is a badly thought through cash in that will only annoy fans as these cuts weren't clearly pointed out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Full version or not, still extremely funny 11 Nov 2005
Format:DVD
The comedy star of Matt Lucas and David Walliams seems to be rising spectacularly at present, with live shows of Little Britain selling out all over the UK, and script books, DVD box sets and more out for Christmas. Even such oddities as Vicky Pollard talking mugs are available for real superfans.
Whilst Little Britain seems unfortunately to be getting cruder as it bids for the mainstream (and who can blame its creators for wanting that; very few people make a fortune out of comedy so we shouldn't really begrudge those who can) - the vomiting WI ladies are repulsive, although they come from a sound comedy idea - Lucas' and Walliams' style is deceptively simple. Rock Profile, a precursor to Little Britain and shown initially on short-lived digital station UKPlay, is testament to this.
The basic format is that each episode features Lucas and Walliams dressed as rock stars and their cohorts, and they are interviewed by Jamie Theakston. The caricatures of the rock stars are created by taking an aspect of the real star's behaviour and tweaking it 200% in a bizarre direction.
The result is, nine times out of ten, extremely funny. Highlights include...
* Lucas as Michael Jackson's personal minder Elizabeth Taylor, complete with heavy Eastenders accent and permanent accusatory pointing finger
* George Michaels (sic) and Geri Halliwell ("I don't eat anyfing yellow!

5.0 out of 5 stars Well performed satire.
It is a series of spoof comedy profiles of leading rock and pop musicians.

Quite zany, and a good laugh.
