    It's certainly fitting that "Monty Python's Flying Circus" hit the American consciousness at the same time as the computer age.

    Random-access memory powers them both.

    FRAZIER MOORE (AP Television Writer)

    NEW YORK (AP) — Those who don't know Monty Python, and don't care, have been blessed with six hours they can spend on something other than watching IFC's new documentary series.

    Of course, all Python disciples can look forward to comedy catnip in "Monty Python: Almost the Truth (the Lawyer's Cut)," shown from Sunday through next Friday (Oct. 23) at 9 p.m. EDT.

    History. Hysterics. Silly walks. All bundled into an everything-you-wanted-to-know-or-rediscover chronicle of this legendary British comedy troupe, now marking 40 years.
    Any man who afflicts the human race with ideas must be prepared to see them misunderstood. - H.L. Mencken

    Come from the land of the ice and snow...

    I hated Holy Grail, but I've seen a few of the sketches from his bbc show and they were great.

    Wow another one of those obscure and heretofore useless channels that I just discovered that I have (thank you DirecTV).
    Now I have my DVR set as well.
