    A sly, cleverly understated concept -- for about three minutes. Stretched to a half-hour, it's a tedious exercise.
  2. I can't remember the last time I laughed so quickly and loudly at a new TV series.
  3. Some of it is funny, some is boring, and some is bound to offend the easily offended.

    I hung on and laughed at nearly every word.

    It may not sound funny on paper, and some of these snippets may not be quite as side-splitting as scenes from the deadpan British original, but this edition of “Creature Comforts” is good fun.
  6. Maybe it was funnier with "ordinary" Britons?
  7. The domestic version... is every bit as good as the original.

    Creature Comforts is genuinely good.
  9. 75
    A breezy summertime comic joy.
  10. The juxtaposition of the sometimes off-the-wall comments and the cuddly creatures is what makes "Comforts" so amusing.
  11. Though it displays far less aggression, “Creature Comforts” exists as a sort of affectionate “Borat,” making fun of unsophisticated Americans, as it leaves you feeling not quite as complicit in the exploitation.
  12. Brilliantly original but wise and low-key.
  13. Naturally funny interviews are easy TV; it's with drier material that the animators shine. [8 Jun 2007, p.74]

    This was an excellent show. If I wasn't laughing out loud (I did), I had a permanent grin on my face.

    Sigh. Only the good die young. *Loved* this show. I was worried that it wouldn't hold a candle to the original, but, amazingly, I found Sigh. Only the good die young. *Loved* this show. I was worried that it wouldn't hold a candle to the original, but, amazingly, I found it just as side-tickling! It woudl sure be nice to see the rest of the episodes. Full Review »
