It's been years since I've seen an episode of Benny Hill

Yeah I was started on this real young too and was shocked when I found out back in the early 90s that Benny Hill had passed away. I was at Border's one day and found a CD with his theme on there and I immediately broke out laughing because it conjured up images of people running around very fast. That's what I and many people remember. Then I found some clips on YouTube one day.
This video entitled Benny Hill had nothing to do with Benny Hill. It just had three guys running around to the Benny Hill theme. It might be funny to you because of the theme, but there were other things going on too. Case in point...
This is from the Man Show. Yeah there is some running around but this is actually funny because that's not all there was to it. Running around, strange tricks, even a little sexual innuendo. Well it is called the Man Show. Still it made me laugh hopefully it will make you laugh. Finally...
This is Benny Hill himself running from people but he couldn't run away from this little girl. He even jumps off a cliff to get away from a mob and apparently not killed. Classic.

The Unearthly Child

The very first episode of Doctor Who. Great to hear the original theme in its entirely without interruption. The first episode will wisk two school teachers from London into their first adventures in time and space. Has to be a shock yes? Watch!

Chappelle's Show:The Lost Episodes Uncensored

I got this DVD just after the holidays. I finally had a chance to check it out. A very enjoyable DVD. Look at the deleted scenes and the sketches that didn't make it onto the actual episodes.

It's almost unfortunate that Dave Chappelle decided not to return to his show. Charlie Murphy, who hosted the show with Donnell Rawlings in the absence of Chappelle said how it was great to be a part of a great moment in comedy. He even said that if it was for Chappelle, people would still come up to him and say he's Eddie Murphy's brother.

Still it would have been nice if Chappelle had of been able to return. I'm sure there were a few great shows ahead, but looking at the story of why Dave Chappelle hadn't returned to do the show I still have my questions. Oh well though, we at least have the DVDs of the various episodes.

Indeed, it could be possible that if the DVD sets are profitable enough Chappelle might come back and do more shows. Perhaps instead of Comedy Central they'll put him on HBO. We shall see.
