Monty Python has began uploading high quality videos of clips from Flying Circus. While there aren't a ton of videos up yet, most of my favorites are there. I am guessing more are to come.

Here is one of my favorites, Argument Clinic

Monty Python is dead. Bereft of life, it has ceased to be, snuffed it, met the Great Master of Light Entertainment in the Sky, and is pining for the fjords.

This is a late Python.

@dlowan,
If I had to generalize, Id say most males from my generation are fans of the classics. I can't recall seeing an entire episode of the original Flying Circus. I think I've just seen "Best Of" types of shows. I haven't seen all their movies, just Holy Grail and Life of Brian.

From the flying circus, I can probably count the number of sketches I know on my fingers.. but I really enjoy the ones I do know. Many of their songs annoy me.

I would guess I am pretty representative of most males in my generation. If anything, most probably only know/like the Holy Grail, and might not have seen other movies or sketches. I've yet to meet a girl my age who enjoys them, but I'm sure they are out there.

@dlowan,
In addition to what Nick says, Monty Python is a bedrock of the international geek/nerd culture. One of the major computer programming languages -- my personal favorite as it happens -- is named after them.

Besides -- did you mean "oh wow" in a good way or a bad way?

Wow in a good way, of course.

I hesitate to use Python references here because a lot do not get them, I shall do so more in future.

I will never forget the impact of the first episode, and, even more so, the second, in my class at school. It was an all girls' school, too. Lots of us were bowled over and were eagerly re-telling the skits for hours. Didn't noticee the sexism (which Cleese has since commented on, as more a nerd thing than anything...) then.

My ex, who is a sound person fort television, was in England working for the Beebs during that era.

He had come back from a miserable, freezing, sodden three months filming out in the weather.

Apparently, the Beebs used to post new projects for people to express interest in working on, and he saw something about a circus. "No bloody way" he said, thinking about more miserable outdoors work.

It was, of course, the first season of Monty Python. I suspect he still kicks himself occasionally.

@dlowan,
What generation am I? (Somewhere between deb and Nick I guess...)

I love 'em and have since I was probably 12 or so.

I'm surprised. I mean, besides the dead parrot sketch, the bunny of horror, the The Holy Grail witch scene, and Brian's mother -- what have the Pythons ever done for you?

@Thomas,
Made me laugh and helped develop a sense of the ridiculous that has enriched my life beyond measure. I was raised in a family and milieu with practically no sense of humour.

Oh...but you were not serious, were you?



The Bunny of horror hasa been of some small utility to me in my later years, I must say.

@ebrown p,
The number of the noun"Thomas" is singular. So the verb must be ... well?
