[Graham Chapman] ☆ Monty Python's Flying Circus: All the Words [surreal PDF] Read Online ð Some time around 1980 I was watching PBS late at night and came across a rerun of Monty Python s Flying Circus It was the Mr Neutron episode from season 4, which is kind of an atypical example of Python as it has one storyline running through the whole episode, but it was the most insane thing I had ever seen on television Soon after I saw Holy Grail and assumed that Graham Chapman was Monty Python because he played the main character in the movie and in the one episode of the TV show I had seen.
I have to be honest I found this quite a difficult book to read, probably because the way and speed I generally read isn t particularly suited to scripts Having said that though I did find that the only bits I tended to laugh out loud on were the ones that I remember watching and not so much any of the others This could well be because, for me, the most important part of any and all of the sketches are the actors themselves and without being able to picture them in the various roles, the humour loses a little bit of itself For hard core fans who know all the episodes or those readers than can envision the Python crew whilst they re reading, this book is perfect but if you don t know the series it certainly looses something when put down on paper Worth trying though.
The Complete Scripts From The Four Monty Python Series, First Shown On BBC Television Between And , Have Been Collected In Two Companion VolumesCharacters Names, Often Not Spoken, Are Given As In The original Scripts, Along With The Names Of The Actual Performer Added On Their First Appearance In Each SketchThis First Volume Contains Twenty Three Classic Episodes, Featuring Some Of The Most Entertaining Writing To Have Gone Into Television Anywhere The Minister Of Silly Walks, The Dead Parrot, Banter In A Cheese Shop Here Is Every Silly, Satirical Skit, Every Snide Insult, Every Saucy Aside and now something completely different spam I m not sure why I didn t enjoy this as much as I was expecting to I am a Python fan, and it s certainly lovely to have all the words to The Dead Parrot, but The Ministry of Silly Walks just isn t as funny without the visuals.
I got these two volumes back in high school, and being before things like YouTube, on demand viewing, and even DVD, it was the only way to see the entire series in order Sure, there were showings on PBS and even MTV if I remember correctly, but when you wanted it on demand you couldn t go wrong with a book containing every script from every episode.
By the time they were all released on DVD, I was already familiar with every sketch.
Brilliant and torturous at the same time Brilliant because it is Monty Python Torturous because I was crazy to see these sketches performed, but couldn t at the time But oh, the jocularity oh, the ribaldry oh, the Python and his flying circus
Spam, Spam, Spam, Spamlovely Spam, wonderful Spam Oh, I m a lumberjack and I m okay It s He s Pinin for the Fjords Now then, some cheese please, my good man And now, for something completely different If any of these snippets of dialog bring a smile to your face, you probably number yourself among the millions of Monty Python fans in the world If so, this two volume set, The Complete Monty Python s Flying Circus All the Words, is right up your alley This is a collection of the complete scripts to all of the episodes of the classic Monty Python s Flying Circus series, including stage directions and character names which often didn t make it onto the screen This is entertaining reading for both the casual viewer, and for the hard core Python fan who wants to test their memory for Python trivia Just remember Nobody expects the Spa Host With me now is Norman St John Polevaulter, who for the last few years has been contradicting people St John Polevaulter, why do you contradict people Polevaulter I don t Host But you you told me that you did.
