Trivia

David Jason described his time on the show as "we were out, being paid to make films and behave like idiots, and wherever we went, the tab was picked up. I couldn't have been more blissfully happy, really. There was a wonderful freedom to it all. I was doing something I loved but under no pressure. I was an unknown actor, so there were no expectations. No one was expecting me to deliver. That came later. I was free to bury myself in work and enjoy it. I learned from this why so many people find solace in painting and drawing." See more »

Proto-Python, Part 2
5 August 2005 | by craigjclarkSee all my reviews

Finally seeing the light of day again thanks to the release of nine episodes of the series on DVD, "Do Not Adjust Your Set" is -- along with "At Last the 1948 Show" -- the clearest forerunner of "Monty Python's Flying Circus." Written by and starring Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin, with David Jason, Denise Coffey and the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band (as well as some animations by Terry Gilliam in the second series), "Do Not Adjust Your Set" aspires to be the same kind of anarchic free-form comedy series, albeit one suitable for children. (It was, after all, originally meant to be a children's show, but it quickly developed a cult audience among the grown-up set.)

The DVD only covers the first series, though, so none of Terry Gilliam's animations are present (don't let the packaging fool you). Even so, it's definitely worth checking out.
