The best whole episode they ever made!
3 October 2017 | by sarojinididiSee all my reviews

Although much more coherent than their usual shows which are composed of very tenuously linked, often surreal sketches, the Pythons lose none of their hilarious, silly juxtaposition of disparate ideas. The result is an absolute comedic masterpiece in which the hallmark Python humour is augmented by some clever characterization (Mr Pither is both delightfully eccentric and extremely irritating) and a story-line that somehow manages to travel well beyond the Devon countryside in just half an hour.
