Talking about this Oscar Nuez said “It’s crazy. I didn’t realize it until we went to the Paley Fest. That’s when it hit me. I’m like, oh, I get it, This is like when I was in high school or when I was 13 and I was watching Monty Python… If I was to run into Eric Idle, or John Cleese in the street, I would have s**t my pants! And this is their Monty Python, these young people. This is their show. You don’t realize, it because you’re working on it, but this is what it means to them. I’m going “Oh wow, this is the show. This is the show.”
