If you are new to Python they were revolutionary satirical 45 years ago. Their mad, innovative style was ground breaking. Now, seen after so much comedy revolution, they are dated, the acting is poor and the direction worse but the material good fun and very silly. If however you are not new to Python you are probably hoping to watch this for the 3rd time and you don't need a review. The awesome silliness is rarely surpassed especially now the BBC have destroyed Spike Milligan's output. Some sketches have survived into contemporary humour like the parrot sketch and the lumbar-jack song, some gems have been forgotten and some is too silly for me.
