Sex and Violence - S1-E1

Corrected entry: In the Killer Joke sketch Eric Idle states that the English version of the joke was first told to the enemy on July 8th, 1944. Later on, as the German broadcast their 'V-Joke', the caption reads "1942 - Somewhere in Britain". Time travel, or a script mistake?

Correction: Neither. It's part of the joke. Already posted and corrected.

Sex and Violence - S1-E1

Corrected entry: In the opening scene, when Graham Chapman sits on a pig, the shadow of the microphone is visible on the wall behind him.


Correction: The scene is set in a television studio and he is speaking directly to camera. A boom shadow is not a film mistake under these circumstances.

Sex and Violence - S1-E1

Corrected entry: When commentating on the artists' bicycle race, John Cleese says some more cyclists are approaching and rattles off a very long list of names ... but then only 3 cyclists pass.


Correction: This is an example of pythonesque humour (pythonesque IS a word, look it up in the dictionary). Don't you think it a bit funny that he rattle off lots of names and have three riders go by? Maybe it's just me.
