These are the last six episodes of the series (episode 45 *will* be included in this set though it doesn't say so here. The first two episodes of this season ("The Golden Age of Ballooning" and "Michael Ellis") are easily the weakest two episodes of the entire series, but the later episodes, including Mr.Neutron (one of my favorite Graham Chapman characters), are pretty good, and the final episode, featuring The Most Awful Family in Britain, ranks with the some of the best episodes from the first three seasons. Overall, this is for the completist, and casual fans should stick with the first three seasons. Also worth noting: these are the six episodes John Cleese does not appear in.

There is a tendency to dismiss these final 6 eps as lower in quality than the 3 seasons that preceded it. My personal recollection (from the days when MPFC played on American public television) followed that, perhaps because of the absence of John Cleese (by far the most famous Python here in the U.S., then as now).
But Cleese's departure didn't so much drag the humor down, as jolt Python out of a remarkable balance of styles that had served them well. The result is a very different breed of Python: the sketches are much longer, and often a single story thread predominates - though the longer narratives still exist to hang sketches on (anticipating the structure of their next two films). They are also much more surreal; the logic (twisted though it was) of Cleese and Chapman's collaborative efforts now gives way to Jones and Palin's flights of fancy.
Well, okay, but is it *funny*? Absolutely - my memory of these episodes didn't do them justice at all. Sure, the stuff I always loved was still there: Golden Age of Ballooning, Anything Goes, the Queen Victoria Handicap - but even the stuff that had me scratching my head in the past (e.g., the entire Michael Ellis and Mr. Neutron episodes) worked surprisingly well for me. And Terry Gilliam (who appears onscreen much more here than in the previous seasons) had me gasping for breath with his part in "The Most Awful Family in Britain"! BEEEANS!!!

Maybe I'm weird too, but Mr. Neutron has got to be one of the funniest things I've ever seen on TV (and this is a full 30 minute sketch). If I was to recommend a single MPFC episode to someone it would be this one. As the U.S. military chief says after bombing London..."Do we have any statistics on how scared they are?".
The Michael Ellis episode is also very funny and surreal (also a full 30 minute sketch).
The Golden Age of Ballooning is excellent.
The Most Awful Family in Britain speaks for itself...hope you like beans.
All in all an excellent set.

Format: DVD
When the second season ended for "Monty Python's Flying Circus," John Cleese announced he had had enough, but he was talked into a third season. The fourth season came to pass without him and the effect was not all that good, as you can tell from the A&E release of the very last six Monty Python episodes: <Monty Python's Flying Circus, Set 7> (AAE 70088).
Some of the six try to stretch a single idea into a full show. The first concerns the Montgolfier Brothers and "The Golden Age of Ballooning" and falls flat. The second is the best of all with the classic "Michael Ellis" sketch and comes as close to Kafka as this show ever did. The Court Martial sequence in the third, however, comes very close to pornography but makes up for it with the wonderful "Anything Goes" (not the Cole Porter one) lyrics.
The "Bogus Psychiatrists" of the fourth merely repeats a formula done many times in the past, as does the "Mr. Neutron" sketch in the fifth. The latter, though, does have the hilarious bit of Master CIA Agent Teddy Salad disguised as a dog. The very last show gives us a bloody cricket match that is still not as gory as the "Salad Days" sketch from an earlier season. At the end, it was Eric who put thumbs down on a fifth season--and the show passed into history.
For those who own the other sets, this is a must for the sake of completeness. Cleese is missed but the others--Graham Chapman, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones, Michael Palin, Eric Idle, et al--are in top form. The menu system of the DVD is just as complicated as were all the others and at times it really is difficult to find your way into the episode. Still the ability to directly access your favorite parts (even the naughty ones) is a great advantage over having these shows on videotape. The added features are not particularly exciting.

Format: VHS Tape
While John is not in these last 6 episodes, the others take a different turn, making some of the most twiztid (and my personal favorite) humour ever seen by BBC audiences. This is not a set for people not familiar with Monty Python. Those people should buy one of the first two seasons. However, if you LOVE Monty, then you'll probably love these last episodes. The memorable episodes are:
The golden Age of Ballooning, Michael Ellis(my favorite of the last six shows), The Light Entertainment War, Hamlet, Mr. Neutron (very funny, I love Teddy Salad, and Conjuring Today), and the final episode Party Political Brodcast.
If you like Monty, you'll still love 'em without Cleese.
