Monty Python or Michael's journeys? by finnguy on 6 February 2004 2:15pm
 
The bad news: you're stranded alone on a desert island.

The good news: there's a TV.

The bad news: there are only two channels.

The good news: one channel shows continuously Monty Python stuff; the other shows all of Michael's travel series.

The bad news: you're only allowed to subscribe to one channel.

Which one do you choose?

(I'd go for the travel channel.)

How did this TV end up on a desert island?
Where's the electricity?
If you're stranded there how can you subscribe to any channels ?

Ahem. I'll stop being a pedantic bastard and opt for Python.

I'd get sky plus and put both sets of programs on my own channel.
clever ey? ; )

Thats an easy one, travels all the way. After all, we would need Michael's unique brand of humour combined with something interesting and diverting. Not Michael's unique brand of humour combined with a slap in the face with a wet fish.

As much as I really love the python comedy (owning many DVD and audiobooks) you would soon get bored of 'Blackmail', 'Dead Parrot' and 'Flower Arranging' etc

Even though I've watched 80days a lot recently, its still enjoyable to watch...

So Palin's Travels all the way!

twosheds, that's easy, just get a crab to run on a kind of tredmill device made of palm tree leaves to generate electricity... like on that carlsberg advert that was on ages ago. i loved that advert!

anyway, i would get neither because i would be building a raft to get off the bloody island in the first place. watching tv indeed!


well maybe a bit of 80 days

Monty Python would be my choice.

All the travel series,would just make you go insane,and remind you how cut off you were.

Palin's Travels.

Why? Well, I'll tell you. In every series, there is at least one Monty Python referrence - case in point: the Life Of Brian scenes while Michael is in Tunisia. Best of both worlds.

And in the travel programmes, it's only Michael. Need I say more? ;)

the travel series - michael on his own - with his smile and laugh!! and you never know his next series after himalayas, might be a grand tour of all the desert islands in the world and Mp would then be able to resuce me!! him being such a gallant person and me being a damsel in distress!!
