EP. 305.0 — Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Paul & Amy lead a quest through 1975’s Arthurian sendup Monty Python And The Holy Grail! They discuss how the non-hierarchical structure of Python informed their spoof of monarchy and authority of all kinds, praise the troupe for creating an epic on a small budget, and explore the history of Camelot in America. Plus: how is Monty Python connected to Owen and Luke Wilson?
Next week Unspooled takes on a whole different brand of comic fantasy with Shrek!
