This is either total rubbish or a work of genius.This reviewer reckons it's the latter.On first viewing I thought "What? Can I have some of what he's been smoking please?" but as the series progressed I started to warm to it.I watched it again on Catch Up (Virgin cable...) and it started to click into place. It actually frightens me that I'm starting to "get it",as a shrink would probably have Noel sectioned after a rummage inside THAT brain. Some of the sketches are hit'n'miss,but most of Python was utter mince and it's supposedly a classic of comedy. The characters are seriously strange as you'd expect (it IS Noel after all) but some,such as Dondylion,are deeper than you'd think. There's no middle ground,you'll either love it or loath it,but at least give it a chance. Now,when's the DVD coming out?
