When I started loving Eric Idle & Monty Python
16 February 2005 | by (Seymour Tennessee) – See all my reviews

This was when I started loving Monty Python & Eric Idle. On the second episode when Granpa became a regular, Idle was also in Around the World in 80 Days playing Passepartout to Pierce "Pre-James Bond" Brosnan on NBC. That role ironically lead NBC to give him his own show but sadly this was canned after four shows in the USA while the remaining six shows aired in Great Britian. Too bad this show wasn't given a chance to grow at all and would had been great in the long-run. But all shows aren't given the chance to grow at all in Hollywood or even in New York these days.

Eric portrayed snobbish and arrogant ghost, English Professor Grant Pritchard when his TV wife, the "only" normal one in the show and he are killed in a car wreck. The wife, Clare likes the new family moving in. But Grant disdains for them and wants their new victorian house back. But much to their surprise, the grandpa moved in and they noticed that he could see and talk with them. Eric & the grandpa were funny together. As the trio formed a reluctant but well liked alliance. Eric would had been a star had dumb NBC wouldn't cancel the show.
