4.0 out of 5 stars Satirical mastery., 7 April 2004
This review is from: 2d TV: The Complete Series 3 [DVD] [2001] (DVD)
It seems strange that a programme so reliant on public feelings and current affairs would make the transistion to DVD well, but 2DTV manages superbly. Although the sketches are outdated, the humour still comes across as strongly as it did when it was first broadcast. The resemblences of the characters to their subjects are quite uncanny and the voice artists make them hilariously convincing.
Series 3's sketches are fantastic, more confident and with better characterisation than the previous two. The Osbournes sketches quite rightly earn their place on the front cover of the DVD, while establised figures of fun such as Tony Blair and George Bush prove Jon Culshaw's ability as an impressionist without the problem of his appearance spoiling the effect.
The special features on the disk are good, including some excellent unbroadcast sketches and the infamous banned advert, which seems ridiculously inoffensive considering the fuss it evidently caused. The commentary which goes with it is enlightening, thought perhaps only because I missed the initial press attention; possibly I was living in a cave. The only real quarrel I have with this DVD is that the animated menus and layouts are more or less exactly the same as the previous one, with fewer features. But this is irrelevant considering the quality of the sketches; you won't regret buying it.
