    I was pleasantly surprised at how actually funny the US translation of the show was. New characters, mostly amusing ones too, and the audiences seemed to find the show enjoyable, instead of there being an awkward transatlantic tension where they don't understand the jokes.

    "Little Britain USA" is funny, but not as good as the original UK version. 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.

    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.
  2. The material's solid, but it won't convince the newbies.
  3. It's not that Americans can't master the outlandish sketch comedy exemplified by Little Britain USA. It's just that, from Monty Python to Borat to Eddie Izzard, the British invariably do it so much better.
