First saw Life of Brian with a friend because his mom told us not to, we went to see why. Never tell teenage boys not to do something.

I'm wondering how did you guys initially discover Monty Python's Flying Circus?

For me, it's serendipity on TV. Around '74 or '75, my Mom and I were invited to stay as long as we desired at my brother's apartment, as he went out of town for a week with his then-girlfriend to her home state of Tennessee. One Sunday evening, we were trying to find something interesting to watch on TV, so we thumbed through our local television guide to see what we could find.

Suddenly, one particular listing jumped out at me, and it looked like it would be fun to watch: Monty Python's Flying Circus! I had mental images of clowns, circus animals, and acrobats, and since the term "flying circus" was part of the title, I anticipated something very, very different from the ol' run-of-the-mill, ordinary circuses that I'd personally seen in the past.

Well, the time came, and my Mom changed the channel. Not more than five minutes into the program I could hear her jaw hit the floor behind me (as I used to have a childish habit of sitting too close to the TV). All I can say is that I had an immediate schooling in female human anatomy, with saucer-shaped eyes and mouth agape. The shock didn't wear off for another ten minutes before Mom changed the channel. Too late, as I was hooked!

So, who's next up?
