Goofs

During the "Mr. Attila the Hun" sketch, Terry Jones is wearing a fake mustache that he has to occasionally touch to keep from falling off. At one point in the sketch, rather than break character, he decides to incorporate it as a joke. After excusing himself to Michael Palin's character, he rips off the mustache, throws it in his policeman's hat, and puts the hat back on his head. See more »

Beyond description

Not the best season 1 episode of "Flying Circus", but definitely the weirdest and most experimental. It's 28 minutes of absolute craziness. The sketches do not finish (and sometimes they do not start); they are interrupted (perhaps the title - "Intermission" - is a clue). Personally I'm glad that all the episodes are not like this, but as an experiment it is not without interest. It makes the series finale of "Twin Peaks", for example, look almost straightforward! *** out of 4.
