Monty Python was one of Britain's best known and loved comedy series with the six members getting great recognition, but this documentary is explaining what paths each member took after it ended. John Cleese did Fawlty Towers with wife (then) Connie Booth, A Fish Called Wanda, Fierce Creatures and many small parts in films. Michael Palin did A Fish Called Wanda, Fierce Creatures and many travel and education documentaries. Graham Chapman after the leads in Holy Grail and Life of Brian had disastrous career moves before his death in 1989. Terry Gilliam did some animation (including all Monty Python's) became a great film director creating classics like Time Bandits, Brazil, The Fisher King, Twelve Monkeys and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Terry Jones has directed many films, and had small parts in films. But Eric Idle has stayed closer to Monty Python than the others, after a few film appearances, he wrote the new musical stage version of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot. With contributions by Phill Jupitus, Barry Cryer, The League of Gentlemen's Steve Pemberton, Spinal Tap's Harry Shearer, Fawlty Towers' Andrew Sachs and Prunella Scales, Barry Norman and narrated by Miriam Margolyes. Very good!
