5.0 out of 5 stars Full of Puns, Palindromes, Litotes & Spam, 5 Jun. 2010
This review is from: Monty Python's Flying Circus - The Complete Boxset [DVD] [1969] [2008] (DVD)
I've always thought this was THE funniest show ever written It's good to see other people feel the same.
Yes it's a shame that some of the sketches have been cut, but I'm just glad it's out on DVD.
The Summarize Proust sketch was censored by the BBC way back in the 70's, they (the BBC) didn't mind the strangling animals comment, it was the self abuse reference they censored.(A strange set of priorities!)
The Python member that will catch the eye initially, is obviously, John Cleese and even though he is a funny man don't let his physical presence over shadow the others.
Michael Palin in particular with his funny little asides and expressions, is in my humble opinion, the funniest Python.

The show ran from BBC 2 :~1969-1974.
45 episodes (30 minutes.)
John Cleese left after season 3 to start writing, "Fawlty Towers"
with his wife at the time Connie Booth.
And don't overlook Palin's and Jones'es, "Ripping Yarns".
But where on Earth is Eric Idle's, "Rutland Weekend Television" ?
Happy viewing; "But for heavens sake keep an eye out for Spiny Norman."
(Writing this review was all in a days work for Bicycle repair man.)
