What did Eric Idle right after Monty Python? Rutland Weekend Television. Harmon and Scott dive into the history behind the 1975 cult TV show that was responsible for launching the legendary Beatles parody: The Rutles. Idle teamed with musician Neal Innes - from the Bonzo Dog (Doo-Dah) Band - who was considered the seventh member of Monty Python and crooned songs in Monty Python in the Holy Grail.

Our last part on the history of William Topaz McGonagall (1825 –1902) - the worst poet in Scottish history.

We dive into who are the modern day McGonagalls - artists who are so bad, that they unwittingly cross into genius. We cover such artistic horrors as The Room, The Shaggs, the poetry of Susan Somers, and Nicholas Cage in the movie: The Wicker Man.
