Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Greg Fagan
If the words "Your lupins or your life" or "No time to lose" bring a smile to your face, Monty Python's Flying Circus: Set 6 may be just the package you've been waiting for. The sixth in A&E's series of box sets, compiling every episode from the seminal British TV comedy troupe Monty Python's Flying Circus: Set 6, features the seven shows from the end of the d season, close to the climax of their brief and spectacular run. Many of the bits here are considered classics, such as "The Cheese Shop," "Dennis Moore," "The Dirty Vicar Sketch," and "The Oscar Wilde Sketch." But perhaps the most pleasant surprise of seeing these shows in their digitally remastered entirety is the chance to see the long-forgotten but wonderful throwaways. One of animator Terry Gilliam's interstitials, for instance, pokes fun at the dawn of man sequence in Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey. The frenzied pace and cultural references might lose some viewers, but fans will likely find themselves giggling with delight throughout the set's three-and-a-half hours.
