Your Pythonic addiction would be better served by buying The Complete Ripping Yarns, although I would highly recommend buying the Region 2 set from AmazonUK for one extremely important reason: no stupid, self congratulatory promos for the A & E Network or BBC America. (By the way, don't let the Region 2 thing put you off: it's surprisingly easy to hack a US DVD player into submission, enabling you to watch all sorts of great British programming not available in the US)
Now I have to decide: what's a better deal, a new copy of this Personal Best set for $39.99, or the used copy for $149.99? Whoever the Marketplace seller is that thinks they can rip someone off for that much, all I can say is "What a silly bunt!"
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!
