Monty Python – Almost the truth

I’ve been watching a series on Sky Arts called Monty Python, almost the truth. Its really good and I recommend it for any other obsessives out there. I don’t think anything else has made me so jolly as Monty Python has. If I feel unwell or a bit down I’ll watch that or Not Only but Also (even though there’s hardly any of it bloody left).

Although there are newer comedy series I love such as Spaced, anything Chris Morris does, the Office, the Ricky Gervais show, The League of Gentlemen, the first six series of Red Dwarf, Blackadder, South Park and the first couple of series of The Mighty Boosh, none of them quite seem to reduce me to the wibbly state of joy Monty Python does.

Therefore I shall include below some sketches of theirs I love. I couldn’t really say favourite because that would be impossible:

Atlantic Channel, or HBO

I just want to add a quick post to profess my love for this channel. Often when I watch TV I think, ‘this show could have been good if…’ but the majority of stuff I watch on Atlantic (UK) you know you’re watching really good writing, acting, directing, comedy etc: Boardwalk Empire, In Treatment, Mad Men, The Ricky Gervais Show, The Wire, I love it…
