Which particular interests do the band members have? I assume some of them have several topics they're rather obsessed about. Any examples? Either subjects they have been very into, or are right now.

'the band' as in the pythons themselves??

uh... well as far as i know Eric Idle is still into music.

Terry Jones is a passionate medievalist, specialising in Chaucer. He's got a new documentary coming out on the BBC (?) this spring called 'the barbarians' together with a new book on the same subject
hope he doesn't present this series in speedos :|
he's also doing a talk for the new medieval exhibition opening at the museum of london on tuesday
(sorry to go on about it and rub it in folks, but i'm still in disbelief meself)

Michael Palin has a new trek in the works i think.. don't quote me on that.. think i read it somewhere but i'm not 100% sure... probably fundrasing for his school for stammering children too bless him. i love michael! hes just so...... nice! :D

don't know what Terry Gilliam is up to and I don't particularly care either - i don't like him - especially as he called the rest of the pythons ' a bunch of washed out has-beens' to Terry Jones and Michael Palin's faces and said that he probably wouldn't work with them again if he had the choice. :x
b*st*rd! can't believe he's being so snotty - he wouldn't be where he is today without them!... i'm surprised he got anywhere full stop with an attitude like that! he should be grateful! :evil:

dunno about cleesey - he seems to have fallen of the face of the earth and british TV so i have no idea what he's doing

Graham Chapman is busy being a full time dead person

apart from that i'm all out of info

OK, good answer. That helped.

For someone who's watched the entire series - is there a few subjects that appear more than others?

ooh ok. i'm good at this. hehe. i agree that graham chapman is currently busy being a full time dead person. doesn't stop us loving him tho

the pythons appear to be obsessed with afew choice things. Cheese is one. Fish is another. Bolton or Notlob as it sometimes referred to. Llamas. I think Finland would count. Not sure. Can't think of any other ideas at the mo. anyone else think of any?

Yeah, I really enjoy it when comedy groups or comedians are having fun with
authorities. Nothing is like seeing a tight dressed up, serious man with a rigid attitude almost "talking people down". Then, after a while you realize that the
man himself got his problems in one or another - usually very strange - way.

terry gilliam has (somewhat recently) been directing movies.




as far as subjects, they also seem to have a religion fixation, especially Anglicanism/Catholicism.

yeah that appears A LOT. and if you look from another point of view. three of the films have some form of religious background. The Holy Grail.
The Life of Brian and The meaning of life. Think about it.........................












But not for too long as it starts to hurt your brain.
