American + British Humor = My Heaven
23 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Let me just preface this post by stating that I fell in love with Little Britain after spending some time in the UK and catching the show. There were a few cultural references that went over my head being that I'm an American, but I still loved the odd and obscene humor that it boasted.

After returning to the US, I wondered and secretly hoped that we would get our own taste of Little Britain with vibrant and familiar references to boot. Sure, watching the original on DVD was entertaining, but I kept thinking of characters they could build with influence from our culture.

Then low and behold, I'm going through the HBO on Demand this morning when I see "Little Britain USA" in the series list. My jaw dropped, and I immediately did my sitting happy dance. So I pressed play on episode 01, sat back with my coffee, and anticipated seeing Carol Beer rudely tell an American "Computer Says No"... as well as what Yankee characters they would bring to the table.

Let me tell you... it HONESTLY did not disappoint. I laughed so hard at one point, I'm sure I woke my roommate up. The things Marjorie says to Rosie O'Donnell are priceless. And Jesus Christ, the gym/bikini guys might even top the obscenity of Bubbles.

I'm sure there will be a lot of elitists and Brits that will despise the idea of their beloved show going American mainstream, but these people just need to get off their high horses and give it a chance. This is a show with two brilliant comedians/actors that needs to be shared and enjoyed by as many people as possible.

And yeah, maybe I'm just a tad bit biased because perhaps now I won't get as many "Who Are you?" responses to my Carol Beer costume I have planned for this Halloween.

Anyway, I really like it. So far, so good. And I really look forward to seeing how far they go with it. You should really see it for yourself before you dismiss it as a bad idea. But I will be honest with you... you need to have a strange and open sense of humor to truly enjoy this show.
