Contains all four series of Paul Whitehouse and Harry Enfield's double BAFTA award-winning sketch show. There may be tighter-trouser wearing, expletive-spouting, freshed-faced sketch show purveyors out there, but they're no match for the real thing. Comedy heroes of The Fast Show and Harry Enfield's Television Programme, Paul Whitehouse and Harry Enfield, have produced four series of Bafta-winning, cracking comedy including the fabulous I Saw You Coming, Posh Scaffolders, Cafe Polski, Jose Arrogantio, the Surgeons, a pitch-perfect Dragons Den, black-and white 'originals' of great movies and hundreds more hilarious characters, sketches and spoofs.
Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse return in their double BAFTA award-winning sketch show. The kings of the bang-on-the-nail sketch are back with a blast as the inspired characters and spot-on spoofs just keep on coming – but don’t fret, the old favourites are all here too... This series welcomes the incomprehensible Horse Trainers, the hard-bitten American Cops, the overlooked but jolly Minor Royals (featuring Victoria Wood), the gossipy 50s Typists (featuring Kevin Eldon), the bizarrely threatening Portuguese Curse Lady and the Everything's Better in Scotland bloke. Of course, their affectionate but wicked satire reappears in gems such as When Life Was Simpler, remembering a time before such inconveniences as holding a driving licence or having to remember the name of your wife, and in fabulous spoofs of the likes of Question Time, The King's Speech and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. And, there's still a place for some brilliant old faces as The Surgeons, I Saw You Coming, Is He a Quare? and the Dragons’ Den.
Fast-paced and full of angst-ridden fun Skins may be based on teenage characters and aimed at a teenage audience but its content is strictly adult. Watch as eleven teens struggle with highly-charged issues of race religion sexuality drugs and food disorders. With a solid set of good actors expect the drama to consist of a lot of well-played emotional ups and downs.
The critically acclaimed drama Skins is back with series 2! Follow the chaotic lives and lusts of a group of spliff-toting hard partying British teenagers. It's been six months since Tony's collision with a bus - remarkably he isn't dead but he sure isn't the same person he used to be. Sid can't get his head around the fact that his best mate is a shadow of the man he's always looked up to. And to top it off he finally got the girl Cassie only to have her whisked off to Scotland. Sod's law. But to Cassie it's totally OK one day she'll come back and they'll live happily ever after... Yeah right. Michelle is lost without Tony too and her Mum has gone and married yet another man - but this time there's a step-sister involved who's intent on trying to make a move on her mates. Maxxie's got hell at home too because his Dad doesn't want him to follow his dream of being a dancer. Even Anwar has changed since he bagged himself a secret girlfriend called Sketch. Jal is throwing off the good girl image and letting her hair down. And Chris - well getting expelled wasn't his finest hour - but now the party animal is stepping out on his own. And while everything is falling apart it's Tony's little sister Effy who's taking control. The complete Series 2 is a three disc set packed with a load of extras including some brand new unseen Skins material.
A mock-reverent look at the life and career of a venerable old actor... a marvellous jape. People Magazine First time on DVD Harry Enfield's mockumentary, first shown on Channel 4 in 1989, is a hilarious send-up of biopics and British cinema. Melvyn Bragg (as himself) arrives at the country residence of Sir Norbert Smith (Enfield) in the week of his 80th birthday, to reminisce about a distinguished acting career that ranged from a whimsical Hamlet to a coveted role as the face of Sudso washing powder. Sir Norbert's patchy recollections, addled by drink, are accompanied by jovial clips from the thespian knight's greatest hits from comedy capers Oh, Mr Bankrobber!, Passport to Puddlewitch and Whimsy Galore! to the shocking tale of 1930s juvenile delinquency Rebel Without a Tie. He bravely serves the war effort by scuttling off to Hollywood to make atrocious musicals about London and the Blitz, and leads the cast of British Western They Called Him Stranger and Rover Returns Home, a very English take on the Lassie series. It's Grim Up North reprises the unremitting misery of 1960s social realism; while the WWII epic Dogs of Death finds Norbert joining an all-star cast determinedly drinking their way through the film's considerable budget. In his final role he gamely plays Nelson Mandela (as Alec Guinness was unavailable). Conversations with Sir Norbert's equally frazzled contemporaries complete the portrait of the great man as a dizzying array of famous actors and productions are gently lampooned. The cast includes Josie Lawrence (Whose Line Is It Anyway?), self-parodying Carry On regulars Jack Douglas, Barbara Windsor and Kenneth Connor, and RenÃ©e Asherson as Lady Norbert.
