As much as I love Monty Python, I rarely enjoy Terry Gilliam's movies. Since Python disbanded, Gilliam seems to have waged a one-man crusade to invent new cinematic ways to get on my last nerve. Time Bandits is the sole exception, even if its last line, "Don't touch that, it's EVIL!" is what women yell at their friends whenever I try to talk to them. Since 1981, when the film was released, there's been talk of a sequel. First it was a film, then a series of TV movies, then, apparently, a comic book. Now it's nothing. With the demise of Virgin Comics, it looks like the Time Bandits sequel is officially dead. I'm disappointed. It was the one time I was looking forward to seeing if Gilliam would find a new way to my nerves.
