I was enjoying the painfully funny Meaning of Life tonight and realized that I simply love these guys. Together they were the funniest troupe ever; separately they've all done some great stuff as well. But my main question is this: who's your favorite Python and why? Obviously it's a very tough call, but mine would definitely be Michael Palin. To me he seems the most versatile and affable. Ask me five years ago and I'd have said Eric Idle or John Cleese. Palin's the understated one that everyone seems to overlook. But keep an eye on Mike as you watch The Meaning of Life, Holy Grail, Life of Brian and Flying Circus and you'll see where my admiration comes from. The guy's a quiet genius. All six of the guys are clearly brilliant in various ways. But who's your fave?
