HOLY FUCKING FLYING CIRCUS, YOU GUISE!
If you didn’t watch it, go to iPlayer, or a torrent site, and find Holy Flying Circus — a comedy drama about the Pythons and the censorship battle over Life of Brian — and watch the fuck out of it.
I was always a huge Michael Palin fan (for those unfamiliar, the Nicest Man In The
World Second Picture), ever since I saw him running around in a loin cloth playing an ex-leper, but I am now officially a huge Terry Tewwy Jones (third picture) fan. I especially like the idea of him as Michael Palin’s wife. It’s a fannish wet dream, I promise you. There’s a kiss and everything.
And I also now really fancy Rufus Jones, who played Terry. I want him to be my manwife with fake tits.
---And from a later post...
I have to admit... my little shipper heart is already building a little backstory about fictional!Mike and fictional!TerryJ getting together in University and how in the context of this film, Terry totally knows that John is in love with Mike, but he's pretty laid back about it because Mike is The Nicest Man In The World and there's no way he'd reciprocate, because "John is the Annoying One" anyway...
…and the whole thing with Terry as his wife is a running joke amongst the Pythons because as soon as they get in the front door they’re such an old married couple, even though they’re completely private about it outside the house.
The whole thing could be so utterly, gloriously ridiculous.
Is there literally nothing my little slasher brain will not fuck with?
If you haven't seen this already, I will provide it for you. You NEED TO SEE THIS.
