That is one of the Knights Who Say... 'Ni'!
Get all the original BBC MP episodes. They are all on DVD or VHS and are a great resource to have. Many may be indecipherable to the younger crowd (it took me a couple years to finally get some of the jokes), but they never become stale.Rem said:Of course.

I actually hired the Holy Grail video earlier this year to see if my kids would like it (ages 9, 11 and 13). I thought they would not get the weak "special effects" and lack of gloss but they really loved it. Must get some more MP videos out for them. Thanks for reminding me.
There was no offense to Jordanb intended in my adopting his avatar for Halloween. His is one of the more recognizable avatars at Cyburbia, so it was an easy choice. I contemplated the old Chet avatar, but it has been used so many times before. Mike D's silky-smooth legs would have been a back-up choice.Rem said:I've never understood the let's get JordanB game - reminds me of the way birds might attack one of their flock that has been injured, is sick, old or simply fallen out its tree (sorry Cyburbanites that are injured, sick, old or have fallen from a tree).
I love MP, of course a Brit friend of mine said 'you americans don't understand half of the jokes in MP.' Probably right. But The Holy Grail is still on of the best movies.mendelman said:Get all the original BBC MP episodes. They are all on DVD or VHS and are a great resource to have.

Plus there are about 45, 30 minute, episodes, so it would make a great marathon.
Oh, the Wickerman was a thoroughly icky movie. Edward Woodward was a cop sent to a British island to investigate something or other, and in the end he was burned to death inside a giant wicker figure as part of a festival. Low-budget, etc. I only saw it once, that was more than enough. That's where your "woody" figure threw me for a second, until I recognized it was a Ni.JNA said:ZG -
What is this movie " The Wickerman" that you speak of?
