Welcome to Royston Vasey. You'll never leave!
4 January 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

'The League of Gentlemen' is a work of genius. Not only is it completely original, but it manages to combine horror with laughs, resulting to perhaps, a new breed of black comedy. Deterring from the reality-based storylines of the common modern comedy shows, the LoG goes on another direction, twisting the boundaries of the trite 'real' world, so as that it becomes a whole new freakishly morbid and surrealistic dimension. Don't get me wrong, it really isn't THAT twisted... or maybe it is... Anyway, its up for you to decide...

'The League of Gentlemen' is also strongly addictive. Yes, the tagline is correct... Welcome to Royston Vasey. You'll never leave!
