Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The sketch selection for this hour-long greatest bits collection would certainly provide fodder for the Argument Clinic (a classic sketch, sadly not included here). But the Fish-Slapping Dance, Michael Palin's self-professed favorite piece of Pythonian silliness is included, as is the absurd, curd-free Cheese Shop sketch and his smarmy turn as the oily host of the game show, "Blackmail." Oddly enough, the bulk of this volume is pretty much as devoid of the amiable Palin as that cheese shop was of cheese. Still, the Tobacconist sketch, the Piranha Brothers sketch, Conrad Poohs and his Dancing Teeth, and the Chemist sketch serve as a nifty Python primer for the uninitiated and a filling sampler for fans who have yet to invest in the complete series. To be totally frank, I was expecting the Spanish Inquisition, the Dead Parrot sketch, an excerpt from "The Cycling Tour," or any number of Monty Python classics in which Palin played a key role. On the upside, in newly filmed material, Palin does take time out from his global travels to serve as a tour guide to the actual site where the Fish-Slapping Dance was filmed, and explicates the three stages of this rather silly ritual.--Donald Liebenson

Product Description

The SAINTS of SATIRE, The LORDS of LAUGHTER, The HIGH PRIESTS of LOW COMEDY have sold out once again. Michael Palin--globe-trotting adventurer and "Comedian's Comedian"--has somehow managed to sit still just long enough to put together his compilation of the very best of MONTY PYTHON. Of course, the perpetually peripatetic Palin found it impossible to resist a bit of free travel, so he has courteously included an all-new, never-before-seen retrospective visit to the site of the notorious Fish-Slapping Dance. And because he's the nice Python, Michael Palin has included, on this very disc, the world-famous Cheese Shop Sketch. Let's hear it for Michael! Huzzah. Collect all six PERSONAL BEST collections. For the PYTHON lover, they're concentrated joy. For the novice, a dangerously addictive substance to be administered with care.

Having bought this as a part of the box set of Personal Best disks because I saw that it listed a particular sketch I wanted, I was very disappointed to find out that there are only small portions of many of the sketches.
For example, every disk in its intro, references the Argument Clinic sketch, BUT, the sketch is never shown! There are a few seconds of the lead in to the sketch but not the argument itself!

Format: DVD
With all the Flying Circus episodes, albums, films, books ect. Why is it a must to realese another best of. As a huge pythoon fan, I don't really think there should be any. Nobody new should get this, and certainly not anyody who has been a fan for a long time. How bout instead of more best of compilations, maybe a realese of more solo stuff like Rutland Weekend Television, Bonzo music videos from DNAYS, At Last the 1948 show episodes, which there are more of than on the DVD's. There's also Out of the Trees, the unrealesed outtakes album, or maybe someone can find filmed but unused material from Flying Circus. But of course, when I went on amazon.com today, there's was The Monty POython Box Set. Don't get excited. It's Holy Grail, ANFSCD, and a Terry Gilliam movie Baron Machunakeiujb, whatever it's called.

Who cares and who the hell are buying these best of DVDs.
