1 The show boned when John Cleese left after the third series because he felt it was become repetitive. The fourth series lost most of its zaniness and became more cohesive than the first 39 episodes. -- Submitted By: (howilu) on September 24, 2013, 9:38 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Hill was way more hilarious than Python ever was. TV stations like WLVI TV Channel 56 in Cambridge, Mass. advertised The Benny Hill Show as funnier than Monty Python's Flying Circus (and mind you the station was airing both shows!). This fact has been on youtube for years. I'd say Python boned from the beginning as it was indeed far less funny than what it was supposed to be all along (it was supposed to be like Hill's show as that Hillish-skit proved). -- Submitted By: (ComedyMan) on April 28, 2013, 11:27 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 So because there was ONE sketch that was slightly Benny Hillish, you condemn the entire series? Alrighty then... -- Submitted By: (John63btf) on February 6, 2013, 5:07 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Benny Hill was much funnier (Python boned from the start). MPFC was a mess from the get-go.In one ep the Pythons made up one of them to look like Hill and they played his theme music in the background. He was what the Pythons tried but failed to be -- Submitted By: (gb) on October 27, 2012, 7:59 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Many would say that season 4 boned because John Cleese wasn't there but for me, it never did. Sure, the skits clearly reflected the visual writings of Terry Jones/Michael Palin but they were just as funy in their own right. Yes, it wasn't the same without John but it held up just fine for me despite that. :) -- Submitted By: (gagedesoto) on September 28, 2012, 2:32 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I have mixed feelings about the Cleese-less season. On one hand, they were still funny. On the other hand, how could it be Monty Python without him? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on July 3, 2012, 2:58 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
7 How can anyone view one of those awful John Cleese-less episodes and say this never boned? From what I recall, the only one that was semi-funny was the one about Eric Idle buying the ant named Marcus, and apparently John Cleese did some of the writing in that one. "Hamlet", "Mr. Neutron" and "The Golden Age of Ballooning" were as unfunny and overdone as it gets. Big fan of seasons 1-3, but no John in season 4 = few laughs. They also took out Michael Palin's old man who always introduced the show with "it's..." Blasphemy! How could they do that to a show staple! It's like they wanted it to be thought of as a different show without Cleese.....and it was....an outright bummer. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 15, 2012, 10:52 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Never boned, although season 4 was spotty. Luckily they ended it before it turned into chum. -- Submitted By: (John63btf) on December 17, 2011, 1:37 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Monty Python's Flying Circus premiered to a bewildered British public on October 5th, 1969. It would, though, become one of the most influential shows in television history. From Saturday Night Live to Kids in the Hall to South Park, the offshoots of Python are numerous. While the show wasn't on for very long, it made made a tremendous impact in the world of television, film, and music. It took snappy British humor, surreal animation, and general goofiness and combined it into a an awe inspiring sketch comedy show that still has viewers young and old roaring with laughter 42 years after its premiere. -- Submitted By: (dcvianc) on May 9, 2011, 11:29 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
10 40 years ago, and this show is still as off-your-chair funny as ever. Hasn't aged one bit. The comedy focus went in a somewhat different direction after Cleese's departure (more emphasis on long, sometimes a little too esoterically self-indulgent skits rahter than the quick 'blackout' style ones), but even the Cleese-free eps knock out anything on TV today. Nobody will ever top them. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on September 14, 2010, 11:59 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
11 Never boned, not by a long shot. Granted, the fourth season wasn't as great without John Cleese, but they managed to make do all the same. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on June 23, 2010, 4:23 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
12 Creative, Funny and Irreverant, Never boned. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on February 8, 2010, 5:30 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
13 Hilariously random. A classic in its own right. The pythons are comedic geniuses. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 7, 2009, 1:42 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
14 Shouldn't even be anywhere NEAR this Web site. Inspired a host of shows and comedians (as well as two great movies, one okay film and a mediocre Braodway musical - I'd rather just watch "The Holy Grail"). Even the final season without John Cleese was better than 95 percent of the so-called comedy crap on television today. -- Submitted By: (GregEichelberger) on July 15, 2009, 2:38 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
