Trivia

Unlike Series 1, 2 and 3 of Little Britain (2003) and the 3 part Christmas special Little Britain Abroad (2006). Little Britain USA (2008) was not given the M rating in New Zealand and was given the R16 rating due to it's adult humour, graphic nudity, profanity and drug references. With Little Britain USA (2008), Matt Lucas and David Walliams wanted to push Little Britain USA to the extreme and make it more rude and more offensive than the first 3 seasons of Little Britain (2003).

The start of the fall for Lucas and Walliams' careers
30 March 2013 | by (Co, Derry, Northern Ireland) – See all my reviews

Little Britain is one of my favourite shows of all time and it also saved Matt and David's careers because before that, they had flop after flop after flop. LB was a massive success and I even saw the live show in Belfast. David Walliams was the first, but hopefully not the last, celebrity that I saw naked in real life.

But what comes up, most come down. And for Lucas and Walliams it was this. The biggest question for Little Britain is "How do you top a show that's so great?" and the answer is you can't. And that's the problem with this show. Lucas and Walliams ran out of ideas and should've quit LB after the third season. But when HBO is paying you a lot a money to write a show that you have no idea where to begin, you'd probably think "Meh, what could go wrong?"

At the end of first episode, I thought "That was okay, I guess. Maybe it'll take a couple of episodes to grow on me." It didn't. It got worse.

The first problem with this show is that the new characters aren't funny. The twist at the end of the "I love you more than" game is just unfunny sex jokes. Oh ha ha, a little girl saying "Penis" and "Blow jobs".

The boring couple who do boring things is not funny. It is indeed boring.

The old lady who does things her dog wants her to do is not funny.

What about the old characters? Well, putting Vicky Pollard in Boot Camp is a great idea, but it's not executed very well. Lou and Andy, we've seen it before.

Sebastian falling in love with the President instead of the Prime Minister, we've seen it before. Besides we've seen the Prime Minister humiliate himself, the President does not.

The "Bitty" sketches, ugh. Seen it.

Is there anything I like? Well, I have to admit, the man getting an erection every time he holds guns made me chuckle, the naked men in the locker room was funny the first time, but not in the second and third times we saw them.

Instead of laughing, I found myself yawning through the whole series. Thank God there was only one season.

Speaking of laughing, the studio audience laughter was replaced by canned laughter.

Overall, an absolute bore. Stick with the first three seasons and ignore this one.
