Quotes

Dayna Devon: So, is there one thing you'd like to be remembered by?
John Cleese: Well yes, there is one, you know. Um, when I'm gone, I'd like my friends to say, "You know, Old Cleesey had his faults, buy he did have the most enormous dick."

A great reminder of the genius of Monty Python
3 November 2018 | by grantssSee all my reviews

The five surviving members of Monty Python - John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones, Michael Palin and Eric Idle - showcase their favourite Monty Python sketches. Also covered is the work of Graham Chapman in an episode-long homage to him and his contribution to the group.

Captures well the genius of the greatest comedy act the world has ever seen. Good selection of skits.

However, by making this a 'Greatest Hits', you remove the continuity of the original Flying Circus episodes. There the skits may have seemed independent in their setting and plot but there was often a running joke through the whole episode and certain things linking the skits. Here we have none of that.

In addition, the Pythons themselves don't add that much. Their discussions and interviews are never dull but don't really contribute much to my knowledge of Monty Python.

The exception would be the Graham Chapman episode, which is illuminating, as the Pythons discuss him and his contribution to the group. Is reasonably emotional too.

Overall, very funny (a given) but why not watch Monty Python's Flying Circus instead?
