Tuesday's Overlooked Media: Hancock's Half Hour



I may well be cheating by having used Hancock's Half Hour before (although if I weren't too lazy to do a search myself, I suspect it may actually have been one of the films, either The Punch and Judy Man or The Rebel). However, as I'm without cable or internet at home, I have been entertaining myself when too tired to write anymore by working my way through the 8 DVD set of Tony's best half hours. Appropriately enough for Talk Like a Pirate Day, I was watching this episode last night where Anthony pulls out his fine Robert Newton impression to do Hamlet's soliloquy. Arr, Jim boy!

Enjoy :-)

As always, drop by Todd's place to get the full round up of AV gems.

Innit though? Sid and Tony together is just genius, though I have to say I adore it when John LeMesurier shows up, too. Wonderful!

You definitely did THE PUNCH AND JUDY MAN before...and I think you might've also cited a HANCOCK'S HALF HOUR...

I suspected as much. Maybe a passing reference, not a complete treatment. Hello from Kelly's pub!
