Oh Wy, don't get me going on Python. THE
architects of all modern comedy. I watched every series, from the very first broadcast episode. I was 11 years old when the first series was aired. Somehow, even at that age, both the stupidity, and the more complexed humorous elements, appealed to my fledgling warped mind. Young guys looking at Python may wonder what all the fuss is about. To appreciate how groundbreaking the Python guys where, you need to place their work in the context of the comedy landscape of the day. The first series had very low viewing figures. I'm so thankful I was one of the few.
Spauned (intentional typo) the greatest Sitcom of all time too! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S9ESDDQNXis
I watched an interview with Cleese recently when he revealed that the writers of a proposed US version of Faulty Towers had written out the character of Bazil Faulty due to political correctness. Can you believe that!!!!!
