Note: Monty Python is now on only occasionally: "Meet a composer with the longest name imaginable, and the head of a chocolate company is asked about the inclusion of such ingredients as "crunchy frog" in his candies. The classic British comedy phenomenon of the 1970s is back, starring the six-man troupe of Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin."

Episodes of the quirky Northern Exposure are on Hallmark Channel now, Monday-Friday. And episodes of the even quirkier "Twin Peaks" are on Bravo @ 5am Tuesdays thru Saturdays. Monstervision review & host segments of the Twin Peaks movie "Firewalk With Me."
