It's about time that a show like this was put on TV. Something that reminds us of the brilliance, and, yes genius, of the Classic Silent Comedians.
This terrific series hosted by Paul Merton profiles some the greatest of the silent clowns, Harold Lloyd, Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton and (my own favourites) Laurel and Hardy.
The Laurel and Hardy episode was my personal favourite. I loved the new music score for "Your Darn Tootin'" composed by Phil Glass I believe. I also throughly enjoyed the Chaplin episode as I finally got to see the legendary "Easy Street" in all its glory! I hope this series is released on DVD some day but then I doubt it ever will.
Overall a terrific series!
