  • Python's White Album

    A show that manages to hold together despite the fact that there really isn't that much great in the individual segments; you might call this one kind of like Python's White Album. Okay sure, there's the Bruces, Camp Boot Camp, the exploding penguin and the burnley...but nothing much ever is given time to coalesce before it's moving on, and they recycle some of their stuff too to add to the goofiness. And yet the ongoing conceit, the "How To Recognize" business, somehow keeps things moving and in the end makes the proceedings seem to add up to a lot more than the sum of the parts. A bit of inspired MP legerdemain, I'd say, and just exactly the sort of hocus pocus you'd expect these lunatics to be able to pull off. :)
