A Bit of Fry and Laurie

I'm currently working my way through another free trial of Netflix.   Mostly I've been fooling around with the selection of stuff available to watch instantly.  The selection is still limited, but I've found a useful website for tracking the best stuff thats available.

Besides random episodes of Anthony Bourdain I've mostly been watching A Bit of Fry a Laurie, Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie's sketch show from the late eighties/early nineties.  I've seen sketches here and there before, but watching the shows as they were originally broadcast really reinforces the (slightly) higher brow Monty Python tone.

I'm really enjoying it so far, though I feel like I'd probably like it more if I understood any of the cultural references being thrown around.  Still, its well worth checking out.
