WONDERFUL! The casting was perfect, the tone was just right, the artwork is true to Josh's...<P>I only have one gripe. In that second panel, WHY wasn't there a peasant crying "'Elp! 'Elp! I'm being repressed!"?<P>Four and a half stars! (Half a star docked for missing the Python opportunity.)

This was _awesome_!!! The casting was brilliant; I LOVED Joe as Graham Chapman as King Arthur! and I about died reading the apologies! NOW we know who the missing Bradley member is!

Actually... was the artist quoting Seinfeld, or the Meryl Streep movie, "A Cry in The Dark", from which Seinfeld took the quote? I know, it's probably Seinfeld, I just love being argumentative. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/smile.gif">
<P>In point of fact, I didn't specifically quote it from Seinfeld. The line from "A Cry in the Dark" has perforated into my collected sense of Australian stereotype. <P>But hell, I ref'ed Python, why not Seinfeld?<P><P>------------------

I was frankly surprised that no one thought of this before.<P>But on rant mode, the TNT series did suck eggs. It was remarkable how they took such a fresh and interesting take on Arthurian legend and turned it into something knee-jerk, political, quasi-soft porn, and utterly boring. Oi vey.<P>Rant mode off. Thanks for the comments, guys!<P>------------------

Well, there is the NBC TV Movie. It was rerun about a month ago. That was good IMHO. But... I forget who the actors were. (I think James Earl Jones did the voice of the Mountain King)<P>------------------

Certainly a better adaptation than the ridiculously feminist TV miniseries from a couple of months ago.
