Really sad news of the passing of comedy genius Terry Jones
Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind. Withering my intuition, missing opportunities and I must feed my will to feel my moment drawing way outside the lines.

Sad news indeed, especially the manner in which he died. Another legend and minor hero gone,😞
No good deed goes unpunished!

No amount of anxiety can change the future. No amount of regret can change the past.

I have to admit that I've never tried to get into any of the Monty Python stuff. Sad news all the same though.

I was never in to the show but Life of Brian is a classic.

How does it compare to The young ones and Little Britain then? Used to love both of those.

Leaps and bounds better than both of them. Life of Brian is one of the greatest comedy films ever made.

They are of course of their time, some sketches have dated and some are are timeless. Watch the ones I have posted, MP is more clever than both Little Britain and the Young Ones which I also like. Bottom the sort of young ones spin off is a masterclass of comedy.

check out MP live at dury lane and spot the brain cell on you tube very funny in a very unpc way.

From the few snippets I've seen, I have to say I doubt I could agree with this.

It was the TV programmes that appealed to me mainly, not the films. Sometimes self-indulgent and not always that funny but at its best, absolutely brilliant.

I think my absolute Peak Python is the cheese shop sketch. But here's one from the underrated final series, after John Cleese had left (though he did appear in the subsequent films).
