It was a great show, though my wife at that time didn't get it, nor did most women. My friends would come over and watch it with me. TV has been crap for what seems like a very long time now. It's like a disco era that never died.
... Just 4 U Chris...A little Monty Python Humor....Hmmm...Like 90% of LPF knows who the Hell that is :thinking::thinking::thinking:...Whatever !
See the attached pic !!...( Still waiting on the driver, should be soon )
Oh, how can you say that, Chris? Did you ever see the "Lumberjack Song" performed? It was hilarious. "I'm a lumberjack and that's okay, I sleep all night and I work all day". The movie, "The Meaning of Life" was inspired and had some very cerebral humor in it.
British Humor...I Luv it...Bone dry...sarcastic...Vulgar at times, typically absurd....pointed, taken at the expense of others...whom deserve to be made fun of. Fits me to a T...crotchety !!! Just Perfect !!
Disco era...Now...that was funny !!! John Travolta was Not acting...that was his real personality... Disco was so ....so....CAMPY.....But ya know...it was real....People knew how F'ing goofy they looked...but...they were real...they just did Not give a SH$T...What a scream....and the lack of PC....OMG....As the Wicked Witch said...
"Oh...What a World...What a Cruel, Cruel World "it has turned in to !!
Where is my Friken Flux Capacitor !! I wanna go back...I wanna go back...To Bad...So Sad 4 U !!...but now...I am here...to brighten up your day !!!!
HAHAHAHAHHHHAHAHAHAHAHAHA ! " Sit on it "
Oh, I get that. I loved Monty Python. I was just speculating why some people didn't like it. I could be all wrong about that. I understood them perfectly.
You might have loved disco, CD, but the music stunk!!!!!! And the clothes were, as you said, soooo camp. People who persecuted me back in the 60s for having long hair suddenly grew theirs long. The CB radio became a must have accessory in ones car or truck. I hated every minute of it. That's a great big 10 4, good buddy.
My nostalgia goes back to the last half on the 60s and first two years of the 70s. The music was transformative, the people were politically savvy and the times were unique. Most of the people were truly authentic.
