What do you do for an encore after confounding the general public with something completely different? Simple: give them something more completely different, from a semaphore version of Wuthering Heights to the last meeting of the Society for Putting Things on Top of Other Things (you were expecting the Spanish Inquisition?). This two-volume set contains for the first time on DVD in chronological order the first six episodes from Monty Python's second season. No sophomore slump here. Episodes 14-19, which originally aired in 1970, contain the signature Python sketches The Ministry of Silly Walks and The Spanish Inquisition. Also in the Python pantheon are the documentary about The Piranha Brothers and their reign of violence and sarcasm, The Architect Sketch, and the scandalous game show Blackmail. While the sketches, filmed bits, and Terry Gilliam animations are enduringly silly, Monty Python's Flying Circus remains a loony marvel in the way it shattered television convention. In Episode 15, a clueless Graham Chapman character is recruited to be the straight man in a sketch, but is not given the punch line. In the same show, the dreaded, but tardy, Spanish Inquisition races to make its entrance before the closing credits run their course. All three volumes are indispensable for Python completists. --Donald Liebenson

And now...another tediously detailed summary of a Monty Python DVD Set from an individual who has too much time on his hands but is by no means as dull as a chartered accountant. Here are the breakdowns (including episode #s () and individual sketch names). Why? Well, because I'm a nerd.
DVD 5 - (14) Face the press/new cooker sketch/prostitute advert/the ministry of SILLY WALKS/The piranha brothers - (15) Man powered flight/the SPANISH INQUISITION/jokes & novelties salesman/tax on thingy/photos of uncle ted/the semaphore version of wuthering heights/julius caesar on an aldis lamp/court charades - (16) A bishop rehearsing/flying lessons/hijacked plane/the poet McTeagle/psychiatrist milkman/complaints/DEJA VU
Loony Bin extras: Meet the chaps, Pythonisms, Gillianimations, Silly Walk (Live!), Naughty bits, pythonshop.com ad
DVD 6 - (17) Architect sketch/how to give up being a mason/insurance sketch/"The BISHOP"/living room on pavement/poets/a choice of viewing/chemist sketch/police constable pan-am - (18) Live from the grill-o-mat/"BLACKMAIL"/society for putting things on top of other things/escape from film/current affairs/accidents/seven brides for seven brothers/the man who is alternately rude and polite/ken clean-air system - (19) It's a living/the time on BBC1/school prize giving/films by Mr. Dibley/the news/free prizes/Timmy williams interview/Raymond LUXURY YACHT/getting married/ELECTION night special
Loony bin: same as DVD 5 except for - A trivial quest, Gilliam's attic, Monty queries, and Tutor manners
That about sums it up. I know there are no episode titles and probably some other little things included but...well, too bad. If you like extremely geeky summaries like this or you are in fact a large geek, check out my "reviews" for DVD set 1 & 2!

5.0 out of 5 stars Michael Palin as the Grand Inquisitor? May 3, 2000
I am sure the Spanish Inquisition sketch was inspiration for Mel Brooks' "History of the World, Part I." The Ministry of Silly Walks sketch, while very silly, is also screamingly funny. The giant hegdehog haunts my dreams. The gas cooker sketch is every single delivery from Sears and Roebuck. The whole video is delightfully ridiculous. I only wish they were still on the air!

If you are a fan of MPFC, or just appreciate off the wall humor, these DVD sets are a must have. Episodes like "Face The Press" are an excellent way to introduce others into the wonderful world of Python. If you are a firm believer in political correctness, skip anything done by Python, as their work will offend you greatly. But then again, the politically correct are devoid of a sense of humor in the first place, so why would they be shopping in the comedy section?
Hardcore fans and newcomers alike will appreciate the digital sound, because it makes hearing the punchlines possible even through heavy audience laughter. Buy them now! You won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is what TV Shows on DVD should be March 1, 2001
By A Customer
It's enough to get the Monty Python episodes, which are hilarious in and of themselves (30 years later, very little has become dated). But the extras take it to a whole new level. 3 or 4 eps on each DVD, funny menus that let you jump to a specific skit if you like, bios of all the members, skits from other eps not on the DVD, skits from "Live At The Hollywood Bowl", did-you-know type trivia (ex. each member appears naked at some point in the run, Terry Gilliam first and Terry Jones most often), and games.
This is a great set to start out with (Spanish Inquisition). Sets 1,2 and 4 are also hysterical.
Let the word go out: This is the model for all other TV shows on DVD (are you listening Star Trek? South Park?)

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Monty Python but Parents Beware... March 5, 2010
Verified Purchase
This is the Classic Python I grew up with and haven't watched in years.
I bought it for me and my 11 year old son to watch. He's a young 11 and he's very innocent.
We're also a Christian family so we try our best to avoid the temptations
of our oversexed secular culture whenever possible.

Well enough of the self-righteous soapbox. Bottom line Python has it's share of sexual
innuendo and nudity. Most of the nudity is fleeting and usually in pictures and very old school so
it's not too blatant and is usually used in a humorous way. However, beware "Full Frontal Nudity" which is a skit on another
box set. I remember at 14 finally getting my Mom to watch Python with me one night on PBS
and just my luck it's the FFN episode and whoah what an embarrassing surprise that was. Hummina hummina!

Either Way, it's a blast especially "the Spanish Inquisition" and the "Ministry of Funny Walks"

Enjoy!
