This review is from: The Pythons' Autobiography By The Pythons (Monty Python) (Audio CD)
You want to know about personal histories of the Pythons? This is fine and worth listening to but don't do it in a car since the quality of some of the recordings is awful and requires a great deal of concentration. Particularly those with John Cleese who has been recorded in an echoey room AND he seems to be eating at the same time - seriously.
A good opportunity to talk about the controversy generated by 'Life of Brian' was missed though the history behind the three Python films is fun.
McAbe's irritating grunts of comprehension through the interviews add nothing. Also banal remarks like 'Terry overspent his animation budget by £1 million... which is quite a lot of money...' do not become Cleese.
This could have been monumental. It's not.
