Dunno - some old shite. :D

I liked it a lot - it felt like the logical 4th series. I know it is stupid, childish and at times misses the mark - but I feel a strong affection for the show, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

For some reason I really like the woman who is rude "computer says no" - that's a laugh out loud one for me. This time it was particularly funny seeing her not pandering to the child: "Age?" "Almost 6" "So you're 5? You're 5 - just say so". :rofl:

I also liked Marjory Dawes of course: Rosie O'Donnell: "You are rude, homophobic and racist, it's disgusting" Marjory: "What..and licking vagina isn't?" :rofl: :rofl:

I'm led to believe it's a very popular TV show, but I didn't think much of it when it was on the radio, and the bits and pieces I've seen on TV haven't been very funny either. But I thought I'd give Little Britain USA a go on the i-player. I got 8 minutes in and didn't laugh or even smile once. Seems I just don't get it. :oops:

Little Britain on the radio?

Yes, Little britain started as a radio show on the BBC!
Radio Show

Little Britain initially appeared as a radio show on BBC Radio 4.

Radio 4 began a rerun of all nine episodes in February 2004. Unusually, this overlapped with a rerun on digital radio channel BBC 7 of the first five, which began in mid-March. In June–July 2004, BBC 7 broadcast the remaining four.

[edit] Television Series

Like several other BBC comedy shows (such as Dead Ringers and The Mighty Boosh), Little Britain made the transition from radio to television. All the episodes for the series were filmed at Pinewood Studios. Much of the TV material was adapted from the radio version, but with more emphasis on recurring characters and catchphrases.

Series One, 2003

As a result of its success, the first television series was repeated on the more mainstream channel BBC Two. Although reactions were mixed, many critics were enthusiastic, and the show was commissioned for another run.

Series Two, 2004

The second TV series, featuring several new characters, began on BBC Three 19 October 2004. Because of its popularity, the scheduled repeats were "promoted" to BBC One, starting 3 December 2004, which guaranteed higher ratings. However, the episodes were edited for their BBC One run, as the material was deemed too offensive for the BBC One audience.

Series Three, 2005

A third series began on 17 November 2005 on BBC One, and ended six weeks later. After its transmission, it was unclear whether there would be another, as so many sketches were given dramatic twists and "wrapped up" — (see individual character articles). Lucas and Walliams were reportedly in talks for a fourth series with the BBC. Furthermore, they admitted in an interview they preferred to "kill off" certain characters in order to make way for new ones.

Little, Little Britain, 2005

In 2005, to raise money for Comic Relief, Walliams and Lucas made a special edition of the show, dubbed Little, Little Britain. The episode included a variety of sketches with celebrities including George Michael, Robbie Williams and Sir Elton John. This was released on a limited edition DVD and was released in the United States as Little, Little Britain on the region 1 version of the Little Britain: Season 2 DVD.

Little Britain Abroad, 2006

In 2006, two Christmas specials were released. In each, characters from the show were depicted as visiting other countries.

Wow. I never realised it was first a radio show. I do remember mat Lucas as the drummer with reeves and Mortimer and the Rock Profiles show.
