Virtually perfect, laugh out loud comedy...
The impersonations of big Hollywood stars (and a few UK ones) will slay you. They're living out of each other's pockets; being petty, down to earth, gossipy in middle class suburb "Surbiton".
It will brutally crack you up. The small cast impressively bring us "Al"(Pacino), "Joe"(Pesci), "David"(Bowie), "Roger"(Moore), "Jack"(Nicolson), "Anthony" (Hopkins), "Michael"(Caine), & "Sir Alec"(Guinness) while (Rolling Stones) "Mick & Keith" run the local shop.(The scatty, incomprehensible "Bowie" takes over the shop temporarily while "Mick & Keith" are away on tour).
This DVD has everything: the complete 3rd series, it's not just a "best of"!
Pure genius: it's all the sketches related to the plot line of ailing neighborhood cleaner Mrs Huggett going on (probably her last) holiday with most of the cast; and there finding her long lost AWOL Husband. (This features a classic impersonation of "Sting" jamming with "Van Morrison" in the pub/hotel that the Stella Street crowd stay in.)
For extras there's "The Man who Drove Sheep to Bruges" (condensed version of this, the 3rd series).
Like Series 1 & 2, Series 3 is far superior and funnier than the disappointing "Stella Street"(The Movie)...which had it moments, but seems to have been made for a less demanding audience.
