Monty Python reunited for documentary series

March 31, 2009 by Clark 

The remaining members of the greatest British (and a bit American) comedy series of all time (Argue that point- I dare you. Okay, maybe Fawlty Towers too) are to reunite for a new six-part documentary series. The Monty Python team (minus the late Graham Chapman) are to get back together for Monty Python: Almost The Truth (The Lawyer’s Cut), which will tell the whole story of the Monty Python legend.

Monty Python was a wonderful thing, and remains so. While some of the sketches fall flat on their face (as the cast will also admit to), there were so many beautifully surreal and completely hilarious scenes in their arsenal that it is impossible to ignore the influence they had on a great many comedy series that followed.

These guys defined the formative years of alternative comedy, and it is wonderful to see that they are getting the respect and adulation their hard work deserves.

Each of the Pythons have gone on to have respected careers in writing, acting, and directing (depending on the Python in question, some have dabbled in all of them), but it is Monty Python itself that they are most widely known for.

With its irreverent humour, ingenious animations by Terry Gilliam and a cast of fantastic performers, it has become in industry in its own right, with merchandise, games, posters and more out there for the fans to collect. Welcome back, boys. We’re all looking forward to checking out this series.

After it is aired, the documentary series will also be released on DVD, and from the sound of things it will serve as a perfect bookend to the Monty Python legend.
