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.
