    "Very Much of Its Time"

    It is very much a work of its time. Some of the humor is no longer funny and painful to listen to, other bits of humor are topical, and since we are not aware of the history of the time, the topical does not work. But much of it is, in fact, brilliant in a manic pre-python type of humor. This is one of the seminal programs which led to much of the other great (British) humor which has since arrived in America. I would suggest, however, that it is humor that demands that the audience use its brains. Its not simply "cheap" laughs and jokes.
