What was it those Monty Python boys used to say? No seriously, what was it? I’m sure plenty of you Monty Python fanatics have some great quote you can throw at those of us who are far less familiar with the comedy troupe. I’ve yet to meet a fan of Monty Python who didn’t take great delight in randomly quoting their films.

Monty Python fans will be interested to know that later this month the Independent Film Channel is set to air a six-part documentary called Monty Python: Almost the Truth (The Lawyers Cut). The series is scheduled to premiere on October 18th at 9:00 p.m. ET and will continue to air each night through October 23rd. Here’s an excerpt from IFC’s website:

“The Monty Python troupe includes John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin and Graham Chapman. This six-part series features interviews with all the surviving Python members, along with archive representation for the late Graham Chapman. The Pythons tell their life story and reveal deeper truths alongside the more tried and tested Python history lessons. The documentary also features comedians and contemporaries including: Jimmy Fallon, Lorne Michaels, Hugh Hefner, Eddie Izzard, Olivia Harrison, Steven Merchant, Dan Aykroyd, Tim Roth and Seth Green, among many others.”
