The Sketch Show was what made comediens such as Lee Mack and Tim Vine famous. This dvd is so funny and is well worth the money. If you haven't seen it, see it now. So much better that Little Britain.

My curiosity led me to this show from BBC's sitcom 'Not Going Out', featuring Lee Mack and Tim Vine, who both appear in this show. Also in the cast are Ronnie Ancona from 'Big Impressions', Karen Taylor from 'Touch Me, I'm Karen Taylor' and Jim Tavare who I'd never heard of before but apparently appears in a Harry Potter film.

Though the DVD is billed as a 'best of' it is 3 hours long and if you do the maths, 6 half an hour episodes = 3 hours, so there is satisfyingly little, if anything, missed out from the original series.

Sketch shows are by nature inconsistent but this does better than most. Ironically it's faster than the Fast Show, with some of the funniest sketches lasting under 5 seconds, and it doesn't have Big Train's propensity to overlong and slow sections where it's impossible to tell if the writers are indulging in their weirdness or are simply trying to kill time. If you're aware of these comedians already it can be fun to try and match the sketch to the writer (as a fan I can tell there are some sketches that have the odour of Lee Mack or Tim Vine all over them) and the different, though coherent, styles keep the show fresh for longer than other sketch shows.

The humour is refreshingly lighthearted, though it keeps you on your toes and is rarely predictable. It's right up my street, but for those obsessed with 'intelligent comedy' it might seem too whimsical for them, though the intelligence that has gone into writing this show is undeniable and it's charm has won over a few skeptical friends.

This show is absolutely comedy gold, high class sketches and well thought out scenarios. The sketches are so simple yet so funny. I'd get your hands on this DVD as its quite rare and the series 2 was not released on DVD which is a shame.

Despite it's "age", an outstanding show.

Doesn't get the full rating as the DVD internal structure to skip from episode to episode is missing. Quite some scrolling necessary, especially if you search a specific sketch.
