Better then I expected.
16 December 1999 | by See all my reviews

When I saw the commercial for this Tv show, for some reason I thought it would be a rubbish, boring, old documentary with no humor in it at all. But this has turned out to be very good. It has clips from the Python Tv show and films and interviews with the python team. If you ever get the chance to see this then do so, it's very good. Monty Python fans won't be disappointed.
