Customer Review

on 28 June 2008
SERIES 3 is when the 'MONTY' phenomenon stopped being a cult, and was embraced by schoolkids and students alike [the studio- audience laughter finally becomes obvious by this point; lacking in SERIES ONE, at least.]----though derided by many 'adults' of the early 70s.

----IDLE'S opener 'multiple-murderer court scene' is an unforgettable macabre classic, and there is much brilliant use of isolated film inserts ['LEMON CURRY', anyone?] to enhance the overall surrealism throughout....

---some nasty ['SAM PECKINPAH'S 'SALAD DAYS' spurts bad taste deliberately] and sexist ['DIRTY VICAR' sketch, relishly depicted by JONES] items are interspersed, to no great harm overall, ---and the icing on the cake is provided by no less than TERRY GILLIAM, who furnishes many sustained, decent-length animations: 'SUPER CHARWOMAN' , for me his finest piece of this series.

SERIES 3 is my own personal favourite amongst the PYTHON TV canon; outstanding in 1972-73, and a timeless artefact of superior BRITISH comedy from those far-off times.
