"Well, let's face it, Monty Python's Flying Circus is beyond criticism or reproach... These guys (atleast to guys like me, and probably many people reading this) restructured our space time contingency, the way we look at life, what makes us laugh and what we're *allowed* to find funny or not and were quite silly to boot... But the question arises... flip all that bread for such a wicked delight ??? And my answer : Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes... Its worth the investment... My gosh, for barely the price of one or two trips to the shrink... look at it... its all there... you can watch the whole series sequentially, your favorite bits or freeze frame Gilliam's revolutionary animated sequences and closely examine the naughty bits.
Any criticisms ? Well, my only disappoint is the bonus features... It would have been great to hear some commentaries by a Python or members of production, out-takes, or stuff like that (not that such documentary material isn't available elsewhere) but still... To be honest,even without the extra features... ITS THE ENTIRE SERIES for HEAVEN'S SAKE... THE ENTIRE BL**DIN' SERIES... Come on... If people have considered you rather nerdy and annoying up til now from quoting Python lines without solicitation... why let them down... Memorize the whole series and really drive people nuts... and while you're at it, fascinate fellow Python-heads with really really really obscure trivia from the series as you run the battery to the remote to your DVD down... That'll show 'em. Now don't be silly... go out and get it... after 30 consecutive hours of watching it, your brain might hurt and you might be in danger of dying laughing, but it WILL be worth it !"
Why aren't there 500 reviews of this??

"I was just expecting to add my 5 stars to the hundreds of other five star ratngs for this product and it turns out that I am the first. If you are new to Monty Python or a seasoned fan, this is a great collection for you. This might be the first 5 star review but I'm confident it will not be the last."
