This is a must buy ! Although I've not seen all 12 episodes, I have
seen some, including the jewel: The Testing of Eric Othwaite. Inspired.
Educational TV in S.C. serialized the show on Saturday evenings in the
mid 70s, alongside the "Goodies" and their highly successful run of
Python reruns. Palin and Jones were my favorites in Python. I felt the
Oxford style was more accessible to the American audience, but still
not to the Benny Hill extreme. As an example, The sight of Tomkinson
and the other "faceless rabble" nailed to the walls of the school, by
the school bullys (from Tomkinson's School Days) is one of my all-time
favorite sight gags. I highly recommend this series to any Python fan.
And almost any man over 40 whose ever read or seen a copy of Boys Life
from the early 60s will howl in delight at Ripping Yarns.
