While some items are stronger than others, there's nothing here that could possibly be described as 'dire'. The dancing group 'Love Machine', clad in space age costumes, are clearly the prototype for 'Hill's Angels'. There's a song called 'Dancing In The Nude' but, sadly, they are fully attired throughout.
Best of all is 'Murder On The Oregon Express' in which Hill takes off T.V. detectives of the day, such as 'Cannon' and 'Kojak'. Jenny Lee-Wright makes a fetching 'Pepper Anderson' - the Angie Dickinson character from 'Police Woman'. Leggy Moira Foot - remember her from 'Hark At Barker'? - also makes an impression.
It may surprise some to see Paul Eddington as Benny's straight man in one of these shows. Yes, the same Eddington from 'Yes, Minister'. Presumably Henry McGee was temporarily unavailable.
I paid full price for this when it came out, and felt it to be worth every penny. The '70's was definitely Benny's best decade.
Not only a genius of comedy, but a superb mimic
