The BBC's classic sketch show is brought to DVD for the first time. This funny, fast moving, non-satirical mainstream sketch show made Tracey Ullman a household name and emphasised the burgeoning talent of Lenny Henry.

Like most comedy shows, Three Of A Kind set out to be as funny as it could be; but - unlike most other shows - it filled every nanosecond of airtime with gags, wall to wall, top to bottom, in an effort to do so. Apart from its use of video trickery and teletext-style 'Gagfax', which printed jokes on screen in between the sketches, the humour was delivered straight - adopting an 'in-your-face' style without any 'side' or pretensions to grandeur, and, as befitting a pre-watershed BBC1 primetime slot, purposefully lacking the savagery associated with much of the concurrent 'alternative' scene.

It was very of it's time. Got to wonder how well it's aged. Still, good price for a DVD if you were looking for it.

HOTLoved this when I was young(er!!) - Unsure how this would have aged … HOTLoved this when I was young(er!!) - Unsure how this would have aged though.



Thanks

All 3 series for under £9, cheaper than a single series elsewhere.

Good price.
Shockingly bad series.

out of stock, but hot & ordered.

I barely remember it which isn't a good sign.

worth a punt at this price...
