Welcome To Royston Vasey......you'll never leave!
This really is an absolute must have for all Leaugue of Gentlemen fans. EVERY EPISODE ON DVD, (6 dvd box set) what more could you ask for? I don't need to explain what the series is about, chances are, if you have found it on Ebay, you already know! Hilariously funny but extraordinarily sick. I love it!!!! Contains series 1, 2 and 3, plus the added bonus of a christmas special. Much better than the film in my opinion, as the film doesn't have everyones favourite characters (Tubbs, Edward, Pauline, Mickey 'love' etc.), and has a really silly plot. Plus, this runs for much, much longer!! Hours and hours of viewing pleasure! Great for pepole like me who missed a few episodes when it was shown on television, or even If you have seen all the episodes, buy it anyway, you know you will find some excuse to watch it!

The League Of Gentlemen - Box Set (DVD)
Jeremy Dyson, Mark Gatiss, Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith really let looses with this amazingly funny 'in a kinda i really shoudnt laugh but i am kinda way' comedy series! Fantastically written and directed! A must see for anyone who has even a little bit of black humour inside of them!

Complete League of Gents
Fantastic complete collection of all 3 series of the BBC comedy,plus Xmas Special.Take a trip to Royston Vasey,where nothing is quite as it seems,this sinister and delicious dark comedy series will leave you laughing and feeling just a bit disturbed,watch out for all the old favourites like Tubs and Edward,Pauline at the Jobseekers,Mr.Chinnery the unluckiest vet alive and Papa Lazarou the scariest comedy creation in decades.
The final series welcomes old favourites and new characters that'll soon win an uncomfortable place in your heart,and watch out for a few celeb suprise cameos!!
The bonus Xmas special is set out as a horror compendium of sorts and explains many of the character's quirks and has shocks aplenty,curl up with the lights down low for this one!!
As usual the League is packed full of homages to some of the great horror movies of our time,from Nosferatu to The Shining,the laughs keep coming and so do the chills,if you were scared of clowns as a child then prepare for all your long forgotten nightmares to return as Papa Lazerou and his Pandemonium Circus rolls into Royston Vasey,little does this ghastly troupe of feaks and geeks realise that the residents are a billion times worse than they could ever imagine,from the 'Local Shop' with it's questionable married keepers,Tubs and Edward to the stomach churning butcher Hilary Briss and hos 'special stuff',
I like The League Of Gentlemen so I bought the box set as it was cheap. Unique series and highly recommended to those with a dark sense of humour. *****
A clasic british comedy
Very like marmite you will either love The League Of Gentlemen or hate it, but either way it is a British comedy that will live on for generations to come.
A well written series that I for one will really miss, if you already know this series then I urge you to get this in your collection if you haven't already.
