Joyful.
11 July 2018 | by kitellis-98121See all my reviews

A delightfully warm and joyful reunion of the Pythons, filled with laughter and fond reminiscence. The comfortable and relaxed nature of the conversation is the product of a four-decade creative collaboration, and it shows. Each member of the team brings intellect, wit, and charm, as well as their own unique perspective, and the banter flies effortlessly in all directions. It's a simple pleasure, sitting back and listening to these fascinating old codgers reminisce, and enlightening as well. I would have happily listened for twice as long. Lovely.
