TV: I is for...

Innes Book of Records, The

PYTHON IMPOSTER and ex-Rutle presents ragbag of self-penned songs accompanied by cheapo prototype video clips, which promises much but delivers only sporadically. Much like The Rutles. And all other Innes/Idle tomfoolery (RUTLAND WEEKEND TELEVISION for starters). Highlights: UFO Shanty, with Innes in blackface and full Tom Baker regalia performing with a scout jamboree, complete with multi-lingual bouncing ball subtitles; and the Gallagher-nicked How Sweet To Be An Idiot accompanied by some condom-headed performance art.

    I watched the first episode again recently and thought “Great! Why is this never repeated?” Subsequent episodes reminded me why it’s never repeated – it’s all a bit dull and not a little pretentious. And I say this with love, because Rutland Weekend Television was fantastic.
