It's painful to rewatch it today, but damn if I wasn't on the floor the first time I saw this as a kid.

It gets repeated here on, get this, a Christian channel. That, Father Ted and Yes Minister. I'm still amazed that On The Buses are not playing.

If only they'd play Dave Allen, then I could watch that and Yes Minister again.


Do they play Vicar of Dibley?

I believe that they have.

There really isn't a contest on this one. Hill really became well known for those chase segments, but that's about it.

Python has some of the most quotable writing on any sketch comedy of all time. From the movies to flying circus to each individual performer.

Benny Hill was way funnier than Monty Python. Sometimes I couldn't even understand what they said on Python. It was often too specific to the British audience. It was amusing but didn't have the laugh-out-loud moments like Benny Hill.
