Trivia

In the "Psychiatry" sketch, the name of Mr. Notlob is a reference to the famous "Dead Parrot" sketch (from the episode Monty Python's Flying Circus: Full Frontal Nudity (1969)), where it is pointed out that "Bolton" backwards is "Notlob". Also, the music that the surgeon plays on the gramophone is the theme from Dr. Kildare (1961). See more »

Goofs

During the restaurant sketch, Eric Idle (playing the wife) almost breaks out in laughter when Terry Jones is wheeled in naked on a cart, garnished with lettuce and an apple in his mouth. See more »

Quotes

Douglas: Please excuse my wife, she may not be very beautiful, and she may have no money, and she may be a little talentless, boring and dull, but on the other hand...
Douglas: Sorry, I can't think of anything.

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.
