OldSarge -> RIP Terry Jones (1/22/2020 11:21:23 PM)

I used to watch Monty Python all of the time. A few months ago BBC America had a Python-thon, and it was so great to recalling all of those skits.

Terry was also a historian and I remember seeing his show on medieval lives. He brought his knowledge and humor along and made the topic rather interesting!

Terry Jones, who earned a spot in comedic lore as a member of the British troupe Monty Python and also had success as a director, screenwriter and author, died on Tuesday night at his home in the Highgate neighborhood of North London. He was 77.

RIP [:(]




Chickenboy -> RE: RIP Terry Jones (1/23/2020 12:48:46 AM)

One of the best. Python (Monty) warped my brain from an early age. I'll miss him dearly, as I do Graham Chapham.

Yes a real loss to the world of comedy.

Unfortunately, he wasn't as well known for his interest in history. His book "Medieval Lives" is a very readable account of life in the Middle Ages and well worth a look.

A sad day. Maybe I should watch the Holy Grail again . . .

Maître d': "Ah, good afternoon, sir; and how are we today?"
Mr. Creosote: "Better."
Maître d': "Better?"
Mr. Creosote: "Better get a bucket, I'm gonna throw up."

Greetings to All,
My high school years were spent faithfully watching Monty Python on PBS and Rowan & Martin's Laugh In.
Absolutely loved Monty Python and the Holy Grail when I saw it at the drive in (remember those anyone?) twice.
Never laughed so hard when the knight went to slay the rabbit and the ruckus that followed. [:D]
And of course the "answer these questions three" at the bridge over the gorge. [:D]
So sad he is gone.

Weigh her against a duck, or very small rocks :)




Joe D. -> RE: RIP Terry Jones (1/23/2020 8:46:33 PM)

First watched Python on PBS, which imported the troupe's episodes as a fund raiser for the network.




Cataphract88 -> RE: RIP Terry Jones (1/23/2020 10:38:15 PM)

I grew up watching Monty Python's Flying Circus on the BBC.

Terry Jones was a great talent and will be sadly missed. [:(]




chris_merchant -> RE: RIP Terry Jones (1/24/2020 12:05:28 AM)

about bloody time.

Death: "2 down, 4 to go". If you saw the Mostly Live show you know what that means.

He could be referencing A Scotsman on a horse, or he maybe he's just a ****

Can't eat salmon mousse without eliciting the bony finger of death "It was the salmon MOUUSSEEE!!!" [:D]
