Not a review yet, but an observation......

I'm listening right now (1:30 mst) and it's the fans show with Mark Says Hi, the same guy you always hear on blue collar and raw dog. I have never had a problem with on the other channels, but in this role, he stinks. I don't know if he is trying too hard and being extra cheesy, but it's just annoying. You can tell that they told him he had to do it, and he is out of his element. /endrant

And now for something completely different....

My Review! :rolleyes:

I am a big Python Fan, from the Circus, movies, and even Spamalot. I listened off and on all week. It was great to hear some the routines again, some didn't translate very well from tv to radio (et al. ministry of silly walks). It was good in small doses like an hour or two, and I quit listening today when I started hearing repeats. Overall, I enjoyed most of it (see my post above), and for a limited run, it was just the right amount of time. Five stars.

I listened on the first day and I really enjoyed it. It would be nice to have it around a little longer. I hope that sometime in the future and can bring it back and keep it around for a while :)

I give it 5 out of 5 Stars :cool:

I did listen to it here and there over the last few days. I liked it a lot; it was funny.

5 stars.

It wasn't so bad. I listened for a few hours.
I do like the visuals from TV though.
The Ministry of Silly Walks doesn't translate as well on radio if you know what I mean.

Same for the Dead Parrot sketch - funny to listen to, but even funnier when you add in some of the visuals.

4/5 for me...

Ditto. 4/5
It would have been much lower if I didn't know all of that material by heart.
