An earlier post wondered why you needed BD media for a grainy original...that argument is valid, but the main reason why a BD version is needed is that it gives the producers one more shot to do a GOOD release. The current standard DVDs are heavily edited, and have tons of problems. If a BD version comes out, they MIGHT choose to restore all the things A&E destroyed when they did their hacked-up DVDs.

I have nothing but praise for the show Monty Python's Flying Circus. It was and is one of the funniest, smartest, surrealist shows ever to be aired on television. The actors were all phenomenal. John Cleese, Michael Palin, Graham Chapman, Terry Jones, Eric Idle, and Terry Gilliam providing animations that were astounding. Terry Gilliam went on to become a very wonderful director of such films as 12 Monkeys, Time Bandits, Brazil, The Fisher King, and of course, the classic Monty Python and the Holy Grail...
Why a Blu-Ray release?? Because it is a show deserving of the proper treatment of a Blu ray release, that's why. While many of these gentlemen are still with us, new interviews with them could be included. Those of us who are fans clamor for this kind of stuff.
A few years back, a Blu-Ray release of the UK show The Prisoner was released, and I was one of the people who already owned the DVD edition, yet the BluRay release was excellent enough to make me purchase it and I have not regretted that purchase. The picture quality on the Blu Ray is leaps and bounds over the DVD release, and the extras are worth the cost of the entire set alone. I bring this up because The Prisoner was originally aired around the same time as Python.. Python was aired from 1969-1974, and The Prisoner was aired from 1967-1968, even earlier. But the Prisoner benefits a great deal from the Blu-Ray release, even though it is an old show. I beg those who have the power to do so to release a Blu-Ray release of Monty Python's Flying Circus. They will be doing a service to art and culture by making the set available for modern audiences, and for all of us Python fanatics that cannot get enough of this brilliant, wonderful show.

These are all the sketches from the first series,BBC, British edition, so in the U.S., you will need a multi-region player as this is a region 2 DVD.As a Monty Python fan this is a must for collector's; this is the silver cover with Cleese pictured at the bottom half of the front cover,with BBC in white letters upper right.Two of the sketches include" I am a lumberjack" and "Bicycle repair man" and many more, of course, 5 stars as a rating!!

Funniest skit they ever did. Along with the Lumber Jack song you can not beat these three episodes on same DVD

I love Monty Python. The Lumberjack Song and the Dead Parrot sketch have been my favourites for years. This DVD made me laugh. There's more to it than just the two skits. No regrets for picking up this one!
