For the first time viewers can skip to straight to their favourite scenes or charcter, which is why the Fast Show is perfectly suited to the DVD format - nice! Fast Show fans wont be disappointed as the DVD features 5 minutes of footage that wasnt shown on the original broadcast, excellent animated menus and 7 minutes of out-takes - all though these arent as funny as you might imagine.
The sketches included show Johnny Depp visiting the Suits You tailors, Ron Manager defecting to ITV and a brilliant Lock, Stock send up - 'Its a right royal cockney barrel of monkeys!'
All the old favourites make an appearance and there are a couple of new characters, such as John Thomson's confused time travel, who doesnt know where (or when) he is!
The highlights include Dave Angel (eeeyyy!), Unkly Alf and Black Painter, who, as always loses the plot with hilarious results.
The disc is only let down by the 75 minute running time. If the BBC can fit a whole series of Blackadder or League of Gentlemen on to one disc, surely the could have got more on to this one?
Running time aside, this is one disc that you will no doubt watch repeatedly, until you have memorised every catchphrase, and recited them to you mates down the pub on a friday night. Fast Show on DVD? Suits you sir!
