A semi-humouress collection of 70's to 90's BBC comedies with a Christmas theme. Stand outs were Vicar of Dibley and Blackadder.

A fun and festive collection of British comedy series' holiday episodes. Some don't have a direct connection to Christmas really. The Black Adder and Vicar of Dibley Christmas episodes are favourites. Worth a watch.

A reasonably entertaining collection of BBC comedies from the mid-'70s through the late '90s. I have fond memories of shows such as Keeping Up Appearances, Are You Being Served and Blackadder, while others I barely recall-- perhaps they weren't as popular during their PBS run. (Not every BBC offering has clicked with American audiences.)

The wittiest of these is Blackadder's Christmas Carol, a wickedly funny spoof of the perennial Dickens classic, with Rowan Atkinson at his curmudgeonly best as Blackadder Scrooge.

This collection contains 8 Christmas episodes of BBC comedies from the 80's & 90's. Some of these shows I did not recognize as having been shown on PBS, but most of them I had seen 1 or 2 episodes. Not sure why I checked out this collection, but I enjoyed 3 of the episodes & skipped one of the remaining 5. I didn't regularly watch any of these shows, so I imagine a lot of the humor went right by me since I didn't know the characters.
