Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Pete Segall
Episodes 20-26 of Monty Python's Flying Circus are the usual Python fare: surreal, anarchic, brilliantly funny sketches - so funny, in fact, that their inspired japeshave been know to leave their fans doubled over at the jokes hours later. Included in Set 4 are "The Dirty Hungarian Phrasebook," ("Please fondle my bum?") "Beethoven's Mynah Bird," "The Hospital for Over-Acting," and, the legendary, "Spam." John Cleese, Eric Idle, Graham Chapman and the rest of Monty Python redefined not just British humor, not just television humor, but the very parameters of humor itself, mining gags by turning history books upside down, shattering the lines of continuity -- and turning flying sheep into punchlines. With six episodes on three tapes, Monty Python's Flying Circus Set 4 (from the latter stages of the show's run) will offer several of the weirdest, funniest hours you can get from your television -- without a penguin exploding.
