New Monty Python Project

Point in favor of my parents: when I was a child, they brought me to see The Life of Brian. The woman at the box office of this small (and small-minded) town tried to convince them that it might not be suitable for a nine-year-old.
“It’s part of his education,” they replied.
Point out of favor with my parents: I remember coming downstairs after bedtime once and finding them watching Monty Python’s Flying Circus. It was the episode with the larch. I was outraged that they had never told me about the TV series.
Now my father brought to my attention how Terry Jones is bringing together the remaining — that is, the living — members of Monty Python to do the voices for his sci-fi farce titled Absolutely Anything. Obviously, it’s not really a Monty Python project, but remember that they used to do some original work for the records they issued, so some of their delightful comic interaction might seep through.
