    Default never missed

    Hi

    We were using humour as a weapon. It was all very Monty Python. We never missed Monty Python.

    --- I'm just wondering if "we never missed M.P." means that they always watched it on tv or that their shows were very like M.P.

    It looks like it means that they always watched it.

    It could as well mean that they always included something funny in their own sketches, something that was an indelible symbol of Monty Python's humour.
