I missed The league of gentlemen when it first came out. A comedy sketch show - it just wasn't for me. So I didn't even bother giving it a shot.
Then, a few years later, I was at the home of a couple of friends and they put on the DVD of the first series. I loved it. It was...
Very very funny television, the characters are so monstrous and bizarre, great scripts, dark humour at it's very best. Particularly the truly bizarre creations which are Edward and Tubbs "this is a local shop for local people" and jobstarter supremo Pauline (she and her pens).
it felt wrong to laugh along with some of the humour
nobody does comedy and television like the British !!
I've watched Psychoville cannot wait for anything by the same twisted people
the league of gentlemen is such a persistant stain ;)
