  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
Oxford fan by jbanks on 30 December 2003 11:10pm
I am a student in Oxford, and I may sound odd (like most people in Oxford) but I have been reading all of Mr. Palin's books and have not seen the various television series. I do not own a television and in my home country of Canada we neither have the BBC nor PBS. As my husband is the Monty Python fan and I grew up without watching much TV (we had farmer-vision, a few channels with local programs) I have neither seen any of the movies! (is that even possible some of you may ask) So I am discovering the humour of Mr. Palin through these fantastic books and was saddened when I missed his book signing at a recent London bookstore. I can't wait to read the newest book based on the Himalayan adventures.

Yes. I reckon that series will be an absolute cracker :)

I like to count how many times he writes about Oxford which seems quite often!

I discoverd Palin's series' quite by accident on PBS a couple of years ago. Also, being a first generation Python fan I appreciate his humor and perspective more than many. Right now his series' seem to be on hiatus from TV right now so buy all means buy the videos! They don't go bad or anything.
