This series is presented by self-confessed Python nut Hugh Bonneville, each show with a group of five famous comedians remembering their favourite Python moments. Each guest chooses a sketch (or two) and it's played with their comments..
The English subtitles for the "Lumberjack Song" show the same lyrics as the English version ("I wish I'd been a girlie, just like my dear papa/mama" [both were used]). However, it doesn't take a German to notice that Michael is clearly singing "Uncle Walter" at the end of the line (so as to rhyme with the German word for "bra", namely "Bustenhalter"). See more »
What is it with all these older men chasing fit young women? Are they eating too much fresh fruit?

not quite as good as the British versions but well worth seeing
I am a total GEEK and must admit that have seen just about everything done by the Pythons--including these German episodes (done either in German language or subtitled). And, because I am such a geek, I loved them. BUT, to someone unfamiliar with the team, I don't recommend this until you've seen their other work first. For example, the one episode that consisted mostly of a long fairy tale was very dry and not filled with the outrageous laughs of many of their other episodes--though it was great seeing John Cleese as Red Riding Hood. I also LIKED watching the travelers in Germany being abused (slapping them with fish, etc.) but I realize that this might not be everyone's cup of tea. You won't find as big a laughs as the Parrot Sketch in this batch but a few of their classic bits are reprised (The Lumberjack skit) along with new material.
