Great "Marty!": 5 stars for the series, 1 star for this short compilation...,
This review is from: The Best Of Marty Feldman [DVD] (DVD)There is such great stuff in this series, a lot of the sketches written by the Monty Python-teams Cleese/Chapman and Jones/Palin,
even some Gilliam animation is featured at some place. Some comedy DVD releases are filled with 3 1/2 hours of stuff.
This lame compilation is 64 minutes long..!! There were 12 episodes of "Marty!" altogether. Maybe some of them were deleted,
as with "Do Not Adjust..." or "At Last the 1948 Show". But there are at least 8 full episodes existing (if not more),
7 of them were transmitted on German TV station "arte". And considering the great Pythonesque material available, this selection
of sketches is very hit & miss. And short. This is sad, some of the best comedy went out on the BBC, but what treatment do they get?
It's 2006 and they haven't even released the complete Monty Python's Flying Circus yet...
