Here it is -- the Big Bang of British Comedy in one beautiful box. 14 DVDs make up 45 episodes, i.e. the complete and entire Monty Python's Flying Circus television show, unadultered and totally insane. Drawing cues from Lenny Bruce, Sid Caesar, and UK comedy paratroopers Beyond the Fringe, John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam et. al. created a new comedy that was as curious and lateral as it was hysterical. It's ALL here, from SPAM to "Cheese," the Lumberjack Song to the Dead Parrot Sketch, the eye-spinning groundbreaking animation to special outtakes and behind-the-scenes footage . . . and so much more. Whether you're a hardcore fan or a new convert, this is the set to keep you laughing 'till kingdom come. This second iteration of the Monty Python Megaset adds two discs not included in the previous release: Monty Python Live!, previously available separately, offers vintage and more recent live performances by the troupe, including the 20-year celebration of Monty Python Parrot Sketch Not Included, and the all-German Monty Python’s Fligender Zirkus episode #1.

    Stop that! It's silly!

    Finally, collected in one place for the first time for the last time, in this special executive shrink-wrapped non-leather-bound boxed set are all 45 episodes of the classic BBC comedy series ''Monty Python's Flying Circus.'' All your favorite sketches are here, along with the bonus features ''Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl,'' the reunion special ''Live at Aspen,'' and the first of their two ''Fliegender Zirkus'' specials for German TV. Definitely worth every penny!

    less entertaining than remembered

    I watched the series when a teen and enjoyed it late on a Saturday night without parental supervision: now, I am the parent and wanted to laugh at TV with my kids... I had forgotten all of the scantily clad women "cut-outs" (not like magazine pics) and the like... Am embarassed to be in the room when some things come onscreen and my 18-year-old son is also present. Suggest to others that they expect to show only to adults as my memory did not remeber it to be less than family fare.

    A 16-Ton DVD Collection Of Monty Python? RIGHT!!!

    The Lumberjack Song. The Ministry Of Silly Walks. The Piranha Brothers. How Not To Be Seen. Hell's Grannies. The Dead Parrot. Self-Defense With Fresh Fruit. Adolf Hilter And Heinrich Bimmler. The Spanish Inquisition. The Funniest Joke In The World. The Upper Class Twit Of The Year. Nudge Nudge. Blackmail. Mr. Gumby.

    All you have to do is mention these things and you know that we're talking about Monty Python's Flying Circus. Clearly the funniest British television show ever made, this series has managed to be funnier, better written and better acted than "SCTV" or "Saturday Night Live". Though it was only on the air for five years, the success of its stars---John Cleese, Michael Palin, Terry Jones, Eric Idle, animator Terry Gilliam and the late Graham Chapman---proves what a groundbreaking show it was.

    A&E Home Video has assembled the entire series in what is called a "16 Ton DVD Edition". Watching the series from beginning to end, I noticed something I never knew before. In the first two or three episodes, it was as if the audience didn't know what to make of the series. It was silly, yes. It was also rude and irrelevant. It was almost as if people knew all this but were afraid to laugh at it. By the time the first season was over, you can sense that the audience is enjoying it and perhaps even encouraging it.

    Aside from the fact that Monty Python was so hilarious was the way it played with our conventional wisdom and challenged us on what we expect from TV shows. Here was program that played its theme fifteen or twenty minutes into the show. Sometimes it didn't play its theme at all! Skits come and go and blend into one another like a great Fireside Theater album. Cartoons that look like they were animated by Salvador Dali pop up. The guys plays girls. And the girls, well...they're gorgeous.
    Even when John Cleese left the series before the fifth and final season, The Pythons still came up with hilarious routines such as Mr. Neutron and The Bike Ride.

    In addition to the entire series, there are two other discs of extra material, including a retrospective, a German episode they did in 1971 and an appearance at The Hollywood Bowl in the mid-1980's to a much appreciative crowd. After all these years, Monty Python is still the benchmark of subversive hilarity.

    Monty Python Never Gets Old

    I bought this set for each of my two kids. They had been watching reruns on BBC TV and were thrilled to have the whole series to watch and share whenever they like.

    Great Bargain Too!

    If you hadn't watched this, then you're no fun anymore!

    "Monty Python's Flying Circus" truly has some hilarious sketches and characters. Along with this, my collection includes "Holy Grail" DVD and Michael Palin's "Diaries 1969-1979." My only complaint from this box set was in the "Summarize Proust Competition" sketch, they cut out a little section where a contestant was asked what his hobbies are. His reply was "Strangling animals, golf, and masturbating." After he said golf, they cut to another shot but you can hear a little bit of the huge laugh it got. I'm sure it'll leave some viewers confused, although I know the story of how the group have fought the BBC to keep the masturbating in.

    Other than that, this is must own collection for any Python fan. My favorite sketches include "The Spanish Inquisition," "The Cheese Shop" "Argument Clinic" and some others as well.

    Classic British Humor

    How could any fan of Monty Python not want this set? Its! All the skits that you have been quoting for the last 30 years in one box for less than $7.00 per DVD! The picture quality and sound quality are very good. Timeless classic comedy. Monty Python fans must own this and any fan of British humor would enjoy it as well.

    A Classic for Python Enthusiasts

    When PBS first brought Monty Python to these shores, I became an instant fan of the show and later the movies. That was 35 years ago and I can still be counted as a great fan and this is the essential collection for any enthusiast. Though finding individual skits and such is daunting, the body of work is impressive and one of the cornerstones of my video collection. Arguably not for anyone, I still continue to laugh and find things I have missed before--they're still silly, witty, odd, and quotable. A must for any Pythonophile.

    A Silly Walk Back In Time

    This is a must have for all fans of Monty Python. Remember the first time you saw an old man crawl toward you and say .... "It's".... Visit the Larch, Polly the Resting Parrot, the Lumberjack, the Comfy Chair (the forerunner of waterboarding), and of course the Spam that you want in your in-box (bloody vikings). All the episodes when you need a laugh..not when the networks want you to laugh. A boxed set to be savored ... like a cup of tea.

    Fun gift box set!

    I was so exited when I saw this for sale, I ended up buying it as a holiday gift. It is a humorous DVD box set and great for those people in your life that grew up watching this kind of satirical humor...it's a little slap stick and you gotta love the accents! It's all good fun- who doesn't mind a rambunctious sword fight at the old bridge? Nothing better than fake blood and limbs flying off in every direction to go along with that brittish banter...it's definateley a fun gift for anyone that watched the show/movies from the Monty Python series. Enjoy!

    FUNNY-FUNNY-FUNNY

    I am old enough to say that I watched Monty Python's Flying Circus when first televised, here in the U.S. It remains sharply current, funny and very insightful of "human behavior" and foibles. When we can poke fun at ourselves in this way, we are better human beings as a result.
