The Scottish Monty Python...
5 September 2004 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

"Absolutely" was, without doubt, one of the funniest and most refreshing comedies at the time of it's original transmission in the late 80's on British television. Most of the cast were Scottish with the exception of John Sparkes who is Welsh and also starred in another mainly Scottish comedy show around the same time called "Naked Video" (which seemed to be a bit more popular but nowhere near as funny as "Absolutely" in my opinion). "Absolutely" appeared on Channel 4 about a year before Vic Reeves & Bob Mortimer arrived with their similar surreal brand of humour. The show featured regularly recurring characters such as "Mr. Don & Mr. George" (who were very Vic & Bob like and got a series of their own after "Absolutely" ended it's run), the residents of Stoneybridge (my favourite characters on the show - very Pythonish and very funny), the Nice Family (my other favourites and possibly the most Python of all), and others (but I've basically listed the funniest characters on the show). Like that other brilliant, surreal Python-like show "Alexei Sayle's Stuff", the sad thing about "Absolutely" is that it was only ever released on video in the form of two "best of" compilations which can't really do a show like this justice - especially when you look at the rubbish getting full series releases. In these modern times of DVD, a box set of "Absolutely" would be a brilliant addition to the world of comedy DVD. Just in case you've never heard of this show in your area, I recommend "Absolutely" to any fans of hilarious, intelligent, offbeat & surreal comedy sketch shows such as "Monty Python's Flying Circus", "The Smell of Reeves & Mortimer", "Alexei Sayle's Stuff", "A Bit of Fry & Laurie", "Kids In The Hall" and "Mr. Show".
