Review

The first episode was recorded on 7 September and broadcast on 5 October 1969 on BBC One, with 45 episodes airing over four series, plus two episodes for German TV.

The show often targeted the idiosyncrasies of British life and was at times politically charged. The members of Monty Python were highly educated with their comedy often pointedly intellectual by way of numerous references to philosophers and literary figures. It followed and elaborated upon the style used by Spike Milligan in his groundbreaking series Q5, rather than the traditional sketch show format. The team intended their humour to be impossible to categorise, and succeeded so completely that the adjective "Pythonesque" was invented to define it, and later, similar material.

The Pythons played the majority of the series characters themselves, including the majority of the female characters, but occasionally they required an extra actor.
