Monty Python's Flying Circus Heading to America

Monty Python's Flying Circus Heading to America


BBC America, that is. The American BBC has acquired the rights to all four seasons of Monty Python's Flying Circus — along with "a pair of specials the troupe did for West German television" — and will air them in a 10-hour marathon on Memorial Day, Monday May 26. According to Zap2It:

The Flying Circus episodes have been digitally remastered, allowing fans of the Cheese Shop, "How Not to Be Seen" and Spam a fresh look at the classic sketch series.

It also includes the lesser-seen pair of "Fliegender Zirkus" West German TV specials, including one in which Graham Chapman, Eric Idle, John Cleese, Terry Jones and Michael Palin performed new sketches in phonetic German.

Flying Circus has aired on TV in past years, though never on BBC America. Who else is making a mental note to set the TiVo on May 26?
