In all its British television programming wisdom, keeping “Little Britain” to a handful of short seasons turns out to be the best outcome possible for the show. Here, we find the outstanding comedy duo of David Walliams and Matt Lucas reuniting with the obvious intent to end the show here, so the performers are free to blow up the relationships and situations that have kept the show hilarious. The energy is palpable and both performers are excellent as usual, and the series finale is easily one of the strongest, funniest, most satisfying finales I’ve seen. There are few shows that with such an incredible, entertaining and effective run, and it’s a surefire classic waiting to happen.
