The League of Gentlemen - Series 1,2 and 3.

If you work at The Buff I've most likely hassled or coerced you in some way due to my love for this show.
"Imma let you finish, but this was one of the best shows of all time, OF ALL TIME"
Having targeted the staff enough, this review is aimed squarely at the customers looking for some really strong and unique comedy. I have never really understood why The League of Gentlemen isn't more well known than it is. Even in England it seems to have been displaced in the public's memory by the catchphrases of the highly derivative Little Britain. The League is a cut above. Well written, well acted and well produced. It is just about the darkest comedy I've ever seen and incorporates many conventions of the horror genre into a totally unique format. The fictional village of Royston Vasey is the home of our cast of characters all played convincingly by the 3 same actors. The 3 series' progress like albums from great bands, changing direction, getting darker and even getting conceptual by the third series. Essential viewing for anyone comfortable with the dark side, forever hold my peace!
