I remember "Monty Python's Flying Circus" very well. Used to watch it religiously.

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.

how to upload photo

Six beams mo better! I won't be able to get that cyan cannon from you before I go to Qatar, probably leaving in a few days, maybe will have it mailed to me there, not sure I want to risk the loss.

Monty Python humour never clicked well with me either Paul, I think it takes a more proper Brit mindset to appreciate that kind of sillyness.

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.

Yes, they were all about satire. Everyone was fair game. I think some people didn't like it because their accents made them hard for some to understand.

Well...there were no accents in the way...when the Roman soldiers...were trying not to laugh...just pure outrageous humor !!!!

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.
