Let’s face it, the news from the world hasn’t been great as of late (when is it?).  And movies provide one way of taking break from all the awful that is out there.  I don’t advocate sticking your head in the sand, but there’s a happy middle ground between a constant onslaught of horrific news and being completely oblivious to the world.

Today’s minisode looks at what I did on Saturday night to take that short little break.  I found a movie sitting there on the DVD/Blu-ray shelf, a movie that I hadn’t seen in years but which has never failed to make me smile, and I just watched it.  Nothing more, nothing less.

“Monty Python and the Holy Grail” truly is a brilliant movie, and while I think everyone should see it, there are any number of movies out there which might have the same effect for you as this one does for me.

Listen to the podcast and hear a couple of reasons I think some movies act this way.
