Format: DVD
Seeing as the contents of this DVD set don't seem to be available anywhere on the internet, I thought I'd let you know what you might be considering ordering here.

This seven disc box features EVERY episode of the Fast Show, including series 1-3, and all three parts of The Last Fast Show Ever, which has not been released on DVD in its entirety until this set. It also contains the one-off clip show "You Ain't Seen These, Right?", which was a collection of sketches not seen in the main series and only previously on the VHS edition of series 3. Also, the version presented here is extended by about 15 minutes, some of the extra sketches being better than the ones left in for broadcast. So that's every episode of the main Fast Show series. The box does not feature any of the spin-off series (Swiss Toni, Ted & Ralph, Grass or Jumpers for Goalposts). It also doesn't feature either of the live shows, Live and Farewell Tour. The reason for their omission is simple, as they are either on different DVD labels or not representative of The Fast Show's style. They are, however, available elsewhere.

The extra features on this set are abundant as well. In contrast to the barebones BBC releases of the other DVDs, this set is crammed full of extra features, which comprise of:

Highlights from Fast Show Night (about 18 mins)
Comedy Connections (39 mins)
Suit You Sir!: The Inside Leg Of The Fast Show (39 mins)
Interviews with the cast (35 mins)
Behind the scenes footage (18 mins)

There's plenty of documentary footage in there covering how the show came about, it's influence, what the cast did afterward and much more. Lots of insight.

Forget Little Britain, the Fast Show was the best sketch show ever, yes agreed it had generally the same characters each week but they were in many different situations. Having watched all the way through again recently I had forgotten just how many comic gems there were. The documentary is worth watching just to see the real Rowley Birkin! A must for all sketch lovers.

I loved The Fast Show when it was first broadcast in the 90's. It was very different from the comedy staples of the time i.e. sitcoms set in domestic situations. It was mostly made up of short sketches with recurring comedy characters. A lot of the sketches had little or no storyline, which, strangely enough, is often what made them funny.

I watched this box set recently and if you liked it first time around it is worth buying it, as you will enjoy the jokes just as much.

The set contains are seven DVD's featuring:
- Series 1-3
- An hour long Christmas Special
- The Last Fast Show Ever - three slightly longer episodes that I hadn't seen before
- A BBC Comedy Connections episode about The Fast show
- Clips from The Fast Show night on BBC2, featuring fans and interviews
- A number of interviews with Charlie Higson, Paul Whitehouse and other members of the cast.

I think the second series was the best. Parts of the first series weren't great and the makers admit this themselves. Some of the sketches became longer (e.g. Channel 9/Ted and Ralph) but were just as funny. Perhaps at this stage it should have been renamed "The Catchphrase Show".

M favourite characters are Competitive Dad and Carl Hooper.
My favourite line is Carl Hooper's immortal query - "Bats, are they blind or just taking the mickey out of me?"

This was an extra pressie for the husband. I haven't heard him laugh so much or for so long, for ages. Has all the brilliant bits & characters from the show. A real gem to have in your DVD collection.

Isn't the Fast Show BRILLIANT?

It was like short sketches and funny characters and stuff, BRILLIANT!

Aren't 7 disc box sets Brilliant? they've got like 7 brilliant discs in them and everything

Not just all the BRILLIANT TV series but also the Christmas show and a BRILLIANT documentary too, BRILLIANT

There's some Brilliant out-takes and behind the scenes footage from behind those BRILLIANT scenes

There's also some sketches that the Brilliant editor didn't think were Brilliant enough for the telly

You even get a Brilliant booklet with some early scripts in it as well, there's only one word to describe this box set

BRILLIANT!

Whitehouse and Higson's observation of human behaviour is devastatingly funny in this show of many short sketches. 'Channel 9' is an excellent example; while on holiday in the 1990s I saw Italian TV at a hotel and could not believe how uncannily accurate was The Fast Show's depiction of its silliness. One never grows tired of the characters, peerlessly performed by the cast, and an increasing number of them pop up in every successive series. The catch phrases continue to resonate 20 years later (has it really been that long?). Grrrreat!
