Monty Python's Flying Circus

(49)8.919694 Seasons

Very possibly the most tragic waste of Oxbridge educations ever broadcast. The program that made all of America sit up and say: "what?" That put SPAM back in the national pantry, launched cross-dressing as a national craze, and made Rene Descartes a household name. Now it's back in its original order - all the episodes of the premiere season...as if that had any empirical value whatsoever.
