"I'm Only A Poor Little Sparrow", by The Ramblers

While this near-novelty single precedes the infamous No. 1 "There's No-One Quite Like Grandma" (by St. Winifred's Children's Choir") by one year...is it not far more annoying, and thus deservedly not...

Was not award the long thread, until after you pointed it out.

Also, by being a new thread, the above query might attract more responses.

Why are there no responses? Monty Python may be vintage, but it still has plenty of admirers!

what do Monty Python fans REALLY think of Series 4?

Personally, I think it is under-appreciated - despite half the episodes focusing on a single story, instead of being in the more popular multi-sketch format, each of them raise more laughs than the...

One more personal favourite

Toward the beginning of "I Don't Wanna Know Why The Caged Bird Sings" (2007), the police team are sitting in a car near a bank, and they get the (correct) impression that a hold-up is taking place....

in "The Simpsons", which 'lazy Chief Wiggum' moment is your favourite?

My contender for the above would be the moment in "Itchy & Scratchy: The Movie" (1992) when Maggie drives a car past the police officers (despite being a baby), and Wiggum says: 'Why isn't that cute?...

On the plus side, Davison's era would seem less short, and so he would not have come and gone too quickly.

On the minus side, as well as not exiting on a high (which he did in the end), he would...

what if, in 1984, Davison had been replaced by McCoy, not Colin Baker?

PLUS: one of the Dalek stories with Pertwee should have been subsituted by a Cybermen story - that Pertwee never fought this silver villain (apart from "The Five Doctors", of course) is a real shame.
