Editorial Reviews

Welcome to The Monty Python Master's Degree Program recommended for students who have successfully completed Bicycle Repair 101 mid-level "It's" Man exams Advanced Albatross for Gumbies and the Nude Pianist Fellowship and are now ready for something... well... completely different. This graduate curriculum includes all six Monty Python's Personal Best collections--the very best of Python as selected by the perpetrators themselves. It also features two "natural habitat" specials: 1972's Live at The Hollywood Bowl and the legendary reunion Live at Aspen 20 Years of Python. For the serious Python PhD candidate we've also included the riotous documentaries Before the Flying Circus and Monty Python Conquers America. And for those who prefer their Python with a little less gravitas all 10 programs are really bloody funny too. BONUS FEATURES: Politically Incorrect Deleted Scene; Additional Gilliam Animations; Post-Python Troupe Highlights; Bleeding Critics; Confusing Musings; Pythonisms; Behind the Scenes of John Cleese's Personal Best; Terry Gilliam's Featurette A Retrospective of Python's Animation; Personal Second-Best Featurettes from Graham Chapman Eric Idle Terry Jones and Michael Palin; Six 15-Question 15-Ton Megaquizzes; Python Troupe Biographies and Selected Credits; Deleted Scenes DISC 1: Before the Flying Circus DISC 2: Monty Python Conquers America DISC 3: Monty Python Live! V1 DISC 4: Monty Python Live! V2 DISC 5: Chapman & Cleese Personal Best DISC 6: Gilliam & Idle Personal Best DISC 7: Jones & Palin Personal Best

This is a collection of documentaries, video of live performances, and "personal best" compilations for the Python players. Fine if that's what you want. But if you are looking for discs containing complete programs, these are not them. The packaging is similar to The Complete Monty Python's Flying Circus 16-Ton Megaset, which contains the complete programs, but this collection is not the same thing at all, it's "everything else."

The packaging of the two products is very similar, so it's easy to be mislead looking at the small versions of the cover art online.

The controlled insanely incredibly creative, ingenious and inspired humor of the Monty Python aggregation is by far the most immediately powerful and effective antidote for curing all manner of maladies, ailments and afflictions due to advanced stages of depression, melancholia and despair, and no prescription is required. Merely slip the Monty Python disc into one's DVD player, and even the deepest, darkest gloom disappears faster than early-morning dew off rosebuds on a warm, sunny morning. Now then, if the Monty Python crew can add such joy to those suffering from even the utmost morose despair, just try to imagine the extravagant delight they bring to those who already are in a mellow frame of mind. The world is by far a much happier place, thanks to the Herculean efforts of all those remarkable Monty Python cast members and their supporting staff.

The Best of Monty Python DVDs were a Christmas gift. The person that received them thought they were great.
