Sorry, I've just watched Daily #1 and just gone through most of the comments. I'll just add a couple responses:
(1) Golden Age? There is no such thing. There are things to discuss and talk about why some things are funny to some people. And BTW to call something a golden age you have to compare it to all the other "ages" and have to have some standard you are comparing them by.
(2) Importance of being silent. As some point out they had to be silent. And silent comedy persists independently (mime for example, and Mr. Bean)and as a component of other forms. But I think sound was always a component of most comedy. (1) in live performances where there is the actual sound of what was being done physically (2) the sound of fellow audience members laughing and reacting, (3) the music played during films. Even though some theaters shows films without music, there is a reason that there was music played during showings of silent films, it enhanced the experience and the humor. I think Charlie Chaplin wrote much of the music to accompany his films. And BTW, notice that the Golden Age TV show insisted in adding music to clips that it selected.
(3) Documentaries. Documentaries that really explore something or someone are interesting. But I hate the compilations of gags that take them out of context. And the narration drives me up the wall.
