It's true. Starting tonight (2/22/06) on PBS, MPFC will re-unite!

http://www.pbs.org/montypython/

From the link:

“Monty Python’s Personal Best,” a series of six outrageous one-hour specials showcasing the groundbreaking comedians with new footage and original clips, will premiere on PBS February 22, 2006.

Each episode will include members of the original Monty Python troupe performing in favorite clips from their unorthodox television series, “Monty Python’s Flying Circus,” repurposed with exclusive new material. Each of the five living Pythons — John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin — produced and wrote his own episode, and collaborated to create the sixth special in honor of deceased member Graham Chapman. The episodes will air over a three week period in two-hour blocks on PBS on February 22, March 1 and March 8.


So, don't be a stream of bat's piss. Be sure to tune in.

LOL, sounds like a hoot. Even MPFC being "repurposed" seems like it's part of one of their skits.

Sgt.: Pointed stick? Oh, oh, oh. We want to learn how to defend ourselves against pointed sticks, do we? Getting all high and mighty, eh? Fresh fruit not good enough for you eh? Well I'll tell you something my lad. When you're walking home tonight and some great homicidal maniac comes after you with a bunch of loganberries, don't come crying to me! Now, the passion fruit. When your assailant lunges at you with a passion fruit...

Yes, some wonderful memories! In the dim and depressing days of the '70s with three hour weeks, power cuts, strikes etc, it must have been wonderful just to come home and relax and watch MP (provided of course there wasn't a power cut on at the time!!!)

I actually had a Monty Python moment today; my company's social club is having its annual quiz on Friday and it's a big social occasion, great fun etc. We all think of weird names for teams - the more embarrassing for the MC to read out, the better!

I suggested "The Knights who say "Ni"" (from Holy Grail) ... but the young lady on my team hadn't heard of it! Oh, such lack of culture. They've all heard of Vicky Pollard, yeah, but not classic comedy !  Wink

Well, of course, this is just the sort of blinkered philistine ignorance I've come to expect from you non-creative garbage. You sit there on your loathsome spotty behinds squeezing blackheads, not caring a tinker's cuss for the struggling artist. You excrement, you whining hypocritical toadies with your colour TV sets and your Tony Jacklin golf clubs and your bleeding masonic secret handshakes.  Wink

OK - here's a true story.
A friend of mine was a bit of a teenage star in the 80's.
After his years of fame he's in Copenhagen early 90's having a beer in Nyhavn when John Cleese walks by. My friend who is a true MPFC fan realises who it was only after a while and then out of pure reflex jumps up and runs after him.

As he is running - he (the old "pop-star") comes to think about what he is doing - chasing a celebrity. Embarrasing beyond belief.
And as he comes up to Cleese and sees his face in the "oh dear - here comes anothe "don't mention" the war person" he just wants to sink through the ground. But somehow he manages to keep his head screwed on and says:
"Oh Mr Cleese. I've been a fan of yours since I was a kid. I especially loved the train compartment thing you did with Marty Feldman in the 60's."

John Cleese just stares at him in disbelief. And says
"Have you seen that!?! Where? How"
And my friend explains that he's got it all on Video.

Cleese gets all excited since it turns out most of that stuff was lost in a fire at BBC 20 years before. And that he hadn't seen it himself. My friend explains that Swedish National TV must have it. Cleese gets friends adress and writes to him a few days later. Friend find people in TV archives who find the stuff and it gets sent to Cleese. All ends with my friend visiting Cleese in the UK.

Stuff like that never happen me.

(A few years later the same guy gets a call from a dying WW2 uniform collector who has heard of his interest in WW2 stuff. And being afraid that his collection might get sold and spread for the wind when he dies, he GIVES it all to my friend. Friend now runs a company that rent uniforms out to movies)
