Not sure where to post this since it covers a couple areas, but since I saw it in a movie theater, I'll post it here.

Monty Python Live (Mostly)

And it was: broadcast from the O2 live to theaters around the world and Gold Television in the UK, the final night of Monty Python's (probably) final show.  Amazingly, for 1.30pm on a Sunday, the theater was PACKED with people.  I swear, I thought the place was full, and I still saw swarms of people flow in.

Being live meant there were some issues, the sound kept cutting in and out for the first ten minutes (in every theater around the world!), the image had this watery wavery quality every now and then (like a heat mirage), but at least it was uncensored.  They cursed a LOT, the poor TV viewers had to hear the beeps over and over.  Of ocurse, the TV viewers had programming during the intermission, we poor suckers in theaters around the world had to spend a whole half hour playing with our phones and watching a big countdown clock.

Eric Idle was all over this one because there were so many musical numbers (and there was a whole dance troupe as well), and the sketches... well, we've seen them all before, but they were all fun.  The only one they really changed was Blackmail, and that was pretty fun (a mystery guest!).  And there were quite a few enjoyable technical fouls: forgotten lines, uncontrollable laughing, ad-libbing that stopped the flow dead in its' track (particularly in the dead parrot sketch), and Eric Idle trying to keep his fake moustache on without touching it.  Priceless.

It'll be on DVD and blu-ray, I'm sure, so I won't spoil [more of] it, but definitely worth checking out.  Though not as original and fresh as "Not The Messiah."
