Well, what can I say?
James P. Zaworski
The DVD set looks slightly better than the videos released in 1989 by Paramount.

Instead of giving the conventional review of how hilarious Monty Python's Flying Circus is - We all bloody know that by now! - I'm going to list all of the skits that you will receive when you finally decide to get off your bum and buy this bleeding, essential first volume in A&E's wonderful collection of the entire series of Monty Python!
This site lists the 6 episode titles, but here are the 44 skit names. Why? Because I'm pretentious and a massive geek!
Disc one: Its Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart(Famous Deaths)/Italian Lesson/Whizzo Butter/Its the arts/Arthur "Two Sheds" Jackson/Picasso-Cycling Race/Funniest Joke in the world/French lecture on sheep aircraft/A man with 3 buttocks/Musical mice/Marriage guidance counselor/Wacky Queen/Working class playwright/Wrestling epilogue/Mouse problem/Court scene with Richelieu/Bicycle repairman/Children's stories/Restaurant sketch/Seduced milkman/Stolen newsreader/Nudge Nudge
Disc two: And did those feet/Art gallery/Art critic/Its a man's life in the modern army/Undressing in public/Self defence/Secret service dentists/Confuse-a-cat/Smuggler/Police raid/Newsreader arrested/Erotic film/Silly job interview/Careers advisory board/Burglar-Encyclopedia salesman/Johana Gombolputty/Non Illegal robbery/Crunchy frog/Dull life of a city stock broker/Red Indian theatre/A Scotsman on a horse/Twentieth century vole
You also get extras like: Meet the chaps (a scene and bio of each member of MP), Pythonisms (a glossary), Gillian's Attic (fun with the art), Nudge Nudge & Crunchy Frog (Live from the Hollywood Bowl!), Silly Occupations, and Hysterical figures (scenes from other volumes)
Congrats to A&E for the fab job they did on these and to Amazon for selling it to me inexpensively!

After MPFC stopped airing on PBS, I thought I would never see the original shows in all their glory ever again; Crummy VHS dubs of 36 episodes lurked in my collection for over 15 years... AM I EVER GLAD I WAS WRONG! The timing of the release of these DVD's could not have been more perfect! The video quality is excellent, even by 1969 standards. I never knew until I purchased this set that there were scenes cut from some episodes, likely to keep airtimes close as possible to 30 minutes; They are restored here! Diehard Pythonites would be loonies if they passed on this golden opportunity to obtain pristine reproductions of perhaps the funniest import this country has ever seen and heard (of course I plan to purchase all volumes of the set). Now, if only the BBC could keep those damned undertakers away from my programme...
Yours faithfully, Prof. R. J. Canning (Mrs.)

Oh God! When I heard A&E was putting out Flying Circus on DVD I just about lost my cool. Actually, I did -- I ran around to my fellow co-workers who also like Python, giggling like a schoolgirl. Anyhow, when I finally got the sets I wasn't let down. I bought all sets to date and have watched each disc at least twice. You cannot go wrong with these if you like Flying Circus. If your only exposure to Monty Python is the movie Holy Grail then you may want to ease into the series as it has distinctly British content and is sometimes topical to Brittain of the late 60's and early 70's. But if you like Brittish humor this is definitely for you. Enjoy!

Thanks to A&E, hard-core fans can now collect the whole four series of Monty Python's Flying Circus. No more worrying about wearing out the tape or frantically searching for the few episodes that are missing in your collection (like mine). The shows on the disc are chrisp and clear like they were just recorded. The menus are nicely animated (Python-style, of course) and the shows are split up into the famous sketches you know and memorized. A&E should be commaned for bringing the shows onto DVD with great care.
