This review is from: League of Gentlemen Series 2 (2 disc set) [DVD] [1999] (DVD)
Once in a while the BBC takes a risk and produce a classic series. This DVD is one of them At a first glance you would think it is a comedy series with northern British humour with a bit of horror thrown in. Scrape the surface a little more and you will find it is a comedy series that pokes fun at certain British taboos.
Pauline- working as a job restart officer, this involves new technology and our class system. After she has been sacked watch out for the phrase "Whatever you do in life put a little of yourself into the job you do" you will have to buy this DVD to get the joke!
Papa Lazarou- Spawned a new language and also made us aware as to how some men would like to treat women in their imagination I hope.
Alvin and Sunny Steel- The owners of a bed and breakfast house gives us a idea as to how we treat sex in the U.K.
Vinnie and Reenie- Made us look at the way some shopkeepers act towards the general public.
You are going to like, hate or not understand this comedy series which ran out of steam by the third series I think it was at its best in the second series and will be a future classic for people who understand this kind of eccentric comedy. Altogether they poke fun at Job Centres, Charity shops and in series 1 and 3 vets. The team won international awards for this series.
