Editorial Reviews

The LORDS of LAUGHTER - The SAINTS of SATIRE - The HIGH PRIESTS of LOW COMEDY - have sold out once again. Terry Jones--writer, director, actor, political satirist, polymath genius--still can’t figure out what he wants to do with his life. So he’s back to bother us. Between attempts to save the free world, Mr. "'I can't make up my ginormous mind" Jones has scrutinized the entire four-year run of Flying Circus and pretty much taken credit for all of it. Herein lie His Majesty’s picks of the very best Python Sketches along with incontrovertible new evidence that it was all his doing. So pour yourself a glass of sherry and join Terry at the piano for a silly walk down memory lane which he calls, "How I Created Monty Python’s Flying Circus." 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. DVD Features: Terry Jones' Personal Second-Best; The Terry Jones 15-Question, 15-Ton Megaquiz; Interactive Menus; Scene Selection

5.0 out of 5 stars All hail "Mr. Creosote", and bon apetit! December 21, 2009
The rabid "quality control" terrier of Monty Python was Terry J., who (according to the other members) cared about, and/or had a creative hand in absolutely everything - including preservation. There wouldn't be any Python reruns if it hadn't been for Jones, who saved the master tapes from being "wiped" by the geniuses at the BBC. (Just in time, apparently - so you can add "hero" to his impressive list of credits, along with writer, director, comedian, historian and satirist.) Think of THAT, no Flying Circus episodes - and no subsequent movie franchise either, because the popularity of the TV program in the U.S. powered the financing of the feature films. A life without Python? The mind boggles...

Here's a collection of Jones' personal best writing and sketch performances, as judged by TJ himself. Those who may not immediately identify Jones will be able to recall him as the loony nude organ player, the obsessively anal "Spam" waitress, or as the rattiest of the many rat-bag "pepperpot" housewives that the boys loved to impersonate, (for whatever Freudian reasons.) Many of Jones' favorites were collaborative efforts with Jones' writing partner Michael Palin, and are certified, imperishable classics. The "Funniest Joke in the World", "Bicycle Repairman" and the Olympic finals of the Hide and Seek championship are among them, all included. Some other gems, like "The Bishop", "Spanish Inquisition" and "Killer Sheep" appear in part - which is why the complete set of all 45 episodes is absolutely essential. However, the "Personal Best" series is more than worth the price for the hilarious, newly filmed introductions alone.

Don't like Spam? Well, you will after this!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Terry's best work July 19, 2013

While the skits here are mostly funny, missing are his funniest bits. It looks like the funniest ones were saved for the collective "Best Of" dvd. I watched it once; I may or may not watch it another day.

2.0 out of 5 stars many sketches missing portions September 22, 2007
By RBW
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!
