Fact no.1- I AM VERY TIRED.
I haven't really slept that much, but I've only got myself to blame- I've got a LOT of work to do. But, ah, who cares, I just think it's time to add another irrelevant poll to this board.
Fact no.2- MONTY PYTHON FILMS ROCK.
They are really smart, funny, surreal and influential, and I bloomin love 'em.

So...which one is your fave?
I'd have to say it's Life Of Brian for me...it's great satire, as well as being, for me, just that itsy-bitsy teeny-weeny bit funnier than the Holy Grail.
And Now For Something Completely Different is still very amusing but I've seen the sketches so many times on TV already, so it isn't quite as good.
Anyway, let the pointless debate begin! Wink

holy grail - but only just

and now for something completely different is a bit poor, the original TV versions of the sketches are better i think.

Life of Brian is just a wicked film, defo the best Monty Python.

And now for something.... was just confusing, I really hated it. The Meaning of Life was pretty good, I can't remember the holy grail.

The reason why people tend to vote for Life of Brian is not because it's funnier, but because it's more satirical, and some would argue socially relevant...would you agree with that?

No I meant the Holy Grail game. That game sounds like fun too anyway, is it still available? Probably not. Like I said, everything they do rocks Cool

If you've got an emulator of some sort you could probably downoad it. I remember I had a C64 emulator a few years back on my pc, and I had it

It's a small program that simulates you having a SNES, Amiga, Megadrive, N64 etc on your computer, you can download ROMs which are game files to play on your specific emulator. Very illegal as far as I'm aware... Razz

Never really got into Holy Grail that much.
Meaning of Life kicks ass though.

If I'm correct (and I usualy am) it's legal to download and play ROMs but you have to delete them from your harddrive within one week of downloading them. Major loophole.

But then these companies aren't prouducing these games anymore, thus aren't making any money out of them, thus really don't care.
