Yes, it's referring to the Monty Python TV series. Here's a link to the book where you can read up on it.

He is referring to the TV series, The Sopranos

http://www.powells.com/review/2008_10_28.html

"Oh -- and he does include four entries on TV series (The Singing Detective; Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy; The Sopranos; and Twenty Thousand Streets Under the Sky),"

For those counting at home that's 9 films in addition to the 993 currently on here, for a total of 1002. Since the list includes the Lord of the Rings as a single entry that accounts for the two extra films.

David Thomson deliberately put in London After Midnight so no-one can complete this! Though in the book, he's really talking about the 2002 reconstruction, so perhaps that should be there instead of the lost original to make it possible..

Regarding Fantômas (1913), shouldn't the other parts be included on the list as well? It's a serial, and I suppose the author of the list is referring to the entire serial and not just the first part.

These are the titles of all 5 episodes:

Fantômas - À l'ombre de la guillotine (1913)
Juve contre Fantômas (1913)
Le mort qui tue (1913)
Fantômas contre Fantômas (1914)
Le faux magistrat (1914)

It doesn't seem to have any graphics, including awards and signatures.

I, too, am curious about the inclusion of The Sopranos on this list.

The fastest way to get something corrected or added on a list is to go to the contact link at the bottom of the page and send a message directly to the iCM team.

It also helps them tremendously when you include the relevant Imdb URLs for any movies that need to be added/corrected.

There's one film which seems to be missing (and would make it up to the 1000). Die Bergkatze (Lubitsch, 1921) aka The Wild Cat/The Mountain Cat:
