    Indeed, the only real downside of the program is that they've made only six episodes.
  2. The easily offended should steer clear, but viewers with an appreciation for outrageous humor are likely to have a good laugh watching Little Britain USA.
  3. The material's solid, but it won't convince the newbies.

    Little Britain USA isn't precisely the same television show that's been slaying audiences and collecting awards in England and Australia for the past several years, but it's close.
  5. If you are a fan of, say, "Little Britain" in Season 3, you will probably like "Little Britain USA." As for the uninitiated, well, I suppose it all comes down to a person's fondness for penis jokes.

    Though there are exceptions and a few bits work, the skits that weren’t funny in one episode don’t become funny when they are repeated, with minor alterations, in the next.

    If you think "SpongeBob Squarepants" would be funnier if it added a couple of hookers and a cross-dressing junkie, this is the show for you. Everybody else should take a pass.

Sadly there are fewer laughs than there are moments that make you cringe. I'm not offended by the show, just not amused. It tries too hard. Expand

It seems that all the political correctness and censorship needed in the US has done much harm for the brand, and it also seems that if Americans see a good foreign show, they take it and "American-ize" it.

The third series just seemed to ramp up the vulgarity and shock factor but forget about the humour, and that's exactly where we're at right now with Little Britain USA. Damn right offensive in parts and without the humour to back it up it simply feels embarrassing, there are one or two genius moments but they're spread so thin that its barely worth enduring the barrage of filth coming your way to get to them. Surely the whole reason for this series was to point out the cultural differences between the two nations and poke fun at the American attitude to the world. This I'm afraid only happens on rare occasions (hunters roping a mouse to the pick-up), the majority of the rest of the sketches could be set anywhere and they simply rehash old ideas. Lucas and Walliams are undeniably very funny, but they seemed to run out of characters and ideas a good few years ago. I'm British and have to endure the overhyping of this show daily, I'm glad that people have finally started to see through the thin veneer though. Believe me, this is not British humour at it's best. There are countless shows that are much more clever, inventive and most importantly funny than this debacle, please don't buy into the it because it's British and very rude. Expand

    Tedious, wincingly unfunny claptrap. They seem obsessed with the homosexual, fat, and racist variety of human kind. Dysfunctional humour? You got it.
