From Amazon.co.uk

Bringing together the undisputed talents of Ben Miller and Alexander Armstrong for a brand new BBC sketch show, The Armstrong & Miller Show’s first series now arrives in its entirety on DVD. It’s been many years since the pair joined forces for the earlier Armstrong & Miller, and in that time, they’ve come up with a whole host of new characters to keep us amused.

Thus, we get to meet the husband who can’t work out that his wife his having an affair with his best friend, and instead chooses to believe some of the wild explanations he’s offered. There’s the dentist and his inappropriate comments, usually uttered while his patient’s mouth is wide open. Or what about the brilliantly inspired SatNav system that comes up with an abundance of reasons for not taking certain routes? These, and many more, jam-pack all of the episodes of the new Armstrong & Miller Show.

The series packs in many laughs, and it’s a mixture of the quality of writing and skill of the two lead performers that really make it soar. The Armstrong & Miller Show may not go to the lengths of Little Britain to mine its laughs, but in many ways, it’s the better show. It’s tighter, more imaginative, and when all said and done, much funnier too. Recommended. --Jon Foster

Product Description

Alexander Armstrong and Ben Miller join together to scratch beneath the surface of po-faced British respectability in their own sketch show, Armstrong And Miller. From the divorced dad who 'bonds' with his son by giving brutally honest answers to innocent questions, to an inappropriate dentist who treats his captive audience to tales of the state of his dog's prostate and swinger parties, to a suburban husband who returns home from work to find his wife and his best friend Pete in full bondage gear, Armstrong And Miller offer up a wealth of hilarious sketches.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well written and very funny. 29 April 2009
By Jo
Format:DVD
I felt obliged to write a review because the 1 star rating given by the previous review is, in my opinion, inexplicable. This show is laugh-out-loud funny, the sketches are just the right length and the returning characters are sufficiently different each episode to be surprising and never boring, whilst retaining their 'catch phrases'. Most episodes are a mixture of the regular characters and a couple of slightly longer stand alone sketches. I have watched this dvd several times with very different audiences and so far everyone has loved it. The series is very like the early series of The Fast Show - if you liked that I'm sure you won't be disappointed with Armstrong and Miller.

4.0 out of 5 stars Underrated and Great Fun 8 May 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I disagree with the one star review. Okay, not every sketch works - even the greatest sketch shows were very much hit and miss - look at Monthy Python, Two Ronnies, Smith and Jones, Fast Show or Little Britain - but some sketches are brilliant. The street-talking pilots are clever and the cavemen sketches are genius.

I would suggest making up your own mind as to the star rating. It may not always be laugh out loud but it is very entertaining and both Miller and Armstrong are such great comic performers. Timing, voices and mannerisms all add to the strong comic characters they create.

I'm also glad to read that Ben Miller is such a good bloke - he always comes across that way.

I think this is pretty good bearing in mind this is their fifth series (four for channel four - see other review) and I look forward to number six. I think in the current climate where there are so many sub-par comedy shows on TV, this old-school style show works for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Armstrong & Miller 2 July 2009
Format:DVD
If you're wavering between buying this or not, just buy it! Armstrong & Miller is smarter than the average sketch show - there are so many memorable characters; the street-talking spitfire pilots, "Daily Mail reader" sat-nav, inappropriate dentist, the list is endless!
This lacks the dodgy moments that you find in so many other similar shows. The whole series is witty and subtle, and out of the same stable as Mitchell and Webb. Guaranteed laugh out loud comedy for the more discerning!

5.0 out of 5 stars How can anyone not find these guys funny? 3 Dec 2009
Format:DVD
I have never, ever written one of these things before but felt that I had to try and put people straight about the 'One star' reviews! The oh so clever writing and brilliant acting from these chaps is the first side splitting humour I've seen on TV for decades - just do yourself a favour and buy it. Whenever I think of certain sketches I just burst into giggles and that is soooo not like me!!! Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Harsh! 21 Jan 2010
By Crookedmouth HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
I didn't cotton on to A&M until their most recent series on BBC1 - this is (like the box says) their first BBC1 series. I've seen their earlier Channel 4 series and wasn't that impressed, but this is fantastic stuff - top notch viewing. Some may think that sketch based comedy is old fashioned or that catch phrase comedy is lazy and unfunny, but I can't agree, and neither is this the sort of stuff that you either get or you don't. It had me laughing out loud and I'm sure it'll have the same effect on you. I tend to be quite choosy about my comedy and I'm damn glad I chose this.

There are about seven episodes of the chav pilots, Brabbins and Fyffe, Frank Dad, the cuckolded husband, the inappropriate dentist and so on. Some of the sketches miss the mark a little (the sat nav and the vegetarian restauranteurs didn't do much for me), but you can't please everyone all the time. Some of the sketches are horribly predictable ("Kill them!") but that's part of the fun.

This is great value.

"It's kicking off Pru!"
