Went to a local theater to see the simulcast of the last Monty Python performance. I watched Pythons like crazy when I was younger - back before we had DVRs and VCRs and had to wait for PBS to show the episodes when THEY wanted to, not when we wanted to see them. Lookshuree.
They hit all the high points for me - I could only come up with one bit that they didn't touch on that I thought they might, and there was at least one that I love but never would have expected to see. Of course, all the biggies - Spanish Inquisition, dead parrot, cheese shop, lumberjack song, argument clinic. Lots of song and dance numbers, with a generous helping of Graham Chapman. Several personal shots, several crack-ups in bits.
I did have tears in my eyes singing "Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life". The Pythons were a huge part of my life growing up, and a huge influence on my sense of humor. Thankfully, I have a stack of DVDs - the whole TV series, the movies, some specials - that never get old.
They are replaying this in theaters July 23 and 24, if you're so inclined. It's well worth it - I'm thinking about going again.
