My Thoughts:
This is a movie I just recently got for $5. From what I was able to find out is that it is a Sci-Fi Original Movie. So that right there tells me this Zom-edy (as the back of the case calls it) could be pretty cheesy. So I went into this one with pretty low expectations. And maybe that helped because I actually enjoyed this one. I enjoyed it more then I probably should have. The majority of it's comedy was making cracks at other movies and TV shows. Some of it being pretty stupid... but I found myself laughing anyway. Being a zombie movie there was of course plenty of blood and gore. Some of which looked pretty cool... but there was also some that looked pretty cheesy.  Bottom line is I had a lot of fun watching this movie... even though as a movie lover I knew I shouldn't. So I guess I will have to chalk this one up as a guilty pleasure.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

     At Last the 1948 Show (1967/United Kingdom)

Plot:
This historic, wildly silly series triggered a revolution that changed the face of TV comedy forever.

Bursting onto Britain's small screens in an explosion of outrageous and ofter surreal sketches. 'At Last The 1948 Show' featured John Cleese, Graham Chapman, Marty Feldman and Tim Brooke-Taylor. Produced in 1967, this recently discovered collection launched the Monty Python phenomenon and much like the effects of the Beatles on music, the world of comedy has never been the same.

This 2 DVD set features the recently discovered 5 episodes of the classic 'At Last The 1948 Show' series and a Comedy Family Tree poster booklet.

At Last the 1948 Show

Writer: Tim Brooke-Taylor (Writer), John Cleese (Writer), Graham Chapman (Writer), Marty Feldman (Writer)
Director: Ian Fordyce
Cast: Tim Brooke-Taylor), John Cleese), Graham Chapman), Marty Feldman), Aimi Macdonald), Jo Kendall), Dick Vosburgh), Barry Cryer), Dick Holmes)

An early show with John Cleese and Graham Chapman. I think it's only worth to check it out for curiosity sake. Though I only can base my opinion on this first episode. It's the first time that I ever saw any of them. This set has been in my unwatched pile for five years now.
