Thanks for the reminder!!!
So if you don't have anything else to watch tonight, this should be fun. I know Veronica Mars is a rerun, and I believe there's not a new episode of Lost tonight (though you may want to verify that).“Monty Python’s Personal Best,” a series of six outrageous one-hour specials showcasing the groundbreaking comedians with new footage and original clips, will premiere on PBS February 22, 2006.
Each episode will include members of the original Monty Python troupe performing in favorite clips from their unorthodox television series, “Monty Python’s Flying Circus,” repurposed with exclusive new material. Each of the five living Pythons — John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin — produced and wrote his own episode, and collaborated to create the sixth special in honor of deceased member Graham Chapman. The episodes will air over a three week period in two-hour blocks on PBS on February 22, March 1 and March 8.
"Monty Python's Flying Circus" Returns to PBS in April 2006
The "Pythons" burst onto the scene in October 1969 when "Monty Python's Flying Circus" debuted in Britain on the BBC to a startled UK audience. The series' 45 episodes ran until December 1974. American audiences were first introduced to such phrases as "nudge, nudge, wink, wink," "naughty bits" and "nobody expects the Spanish inquisition!" when local PBS stations obtained broadcast rights to the series in 1974. The series returns to PBS in April 2006.
I'm still trying to get through the complete collection dvd series. Its gonna take me years.
The only thing is, my PBS station stinks. They're not airing them right. The first two hours will air tonight and next Wednesday at 10pm, and then the other episodes will all air in late night hours, e.g. 1am, 2am, etc. I guess Python's a tad too racy for my local PBS station.
I've been meaning to pick up that megaset. It's an awful lot of money to plop down at one time, though.
Charlotte NC sucks. According to yahoo, it was running on PBS tonight. That must be for cable cos on the independant PBS channel 42 (WTVI) and the statewide university public TV system channel 58 (WUNG) they're running Masterpiece theater and some special on a train to the Adirondack mountains.
Not exactly surprising as the most racy thing they might air at any given time from the BBC is 'Are You Being Served?'. Or Britcoms where the protagonists are at LEAST 60 years old. Usually preceeded by Lawrence Fucking Welk. One gets the idea the target demographic for public TV in Charlotte is the 70 to DEAD crowd. Sweet evil FUCK Charlotte sucks!
I feel remarkably unburdened with the need to explain, justify or defend anything I say, feel or do online to any self-entitled anonymous snarkwit who feels I owe their point of view a form of cogent argument or debate. Life is too short to stress myself arguing with strangers over minutiae. Ya don't like it, ignore me and go read something else. -WinterRose
aaaaaaaaaaaaand I forgot to tape it.
