User ReviewsReview this title
Episode one, among other things, treated viewers to Lydon dressed in ridiculously colorful garb, burning rock and roll memorabilia to the tune of the Overture of 1812 or some such classical fare.
Episode two was filmed primarily at the Sundance film festival, where Lydon met up with film industry celebrities, like Danny DeVito, Heather Graham and Kevin Spacey (if I remember correctly), among others. Great shots of him walking around town with his wife Nora, who looks amazing considering she was already in her 30's when she met Lydon during the Pistols' heyday.
Never saw episode 3.
All in all, an amusing show worth seeing, but it was bound to run out of steam quickly, just as the Pistols did.
There is also a sequence where he interviews some buxom singer and has a laugh because her PR people have not only submitted to him the questions that he should ask - they also printed them out, one at a time on individual pieces of paper, and at about a size 20 font.
He is an original, one of a kind, and the years have not changed his quick wit. Can you name anyone else who not only gains respect by not asking for it, but manages to offend as well????? With all of the other ridiculous TV out there, they should bring back the original three episodes and continue with the other four. Does anyone care that there is a seven year gap??? Naaaa -
I'd like to see this series on DVD - perhaps they could do what they did with the TV series 'Profit' and release all the aired and unaired episodes.
