Super weird! Decent skits at times. Feels like the British version of the original Saturday Night Live. Captioning sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education.

"Instead of giving the conventional review of how hilarious Monty Python's Flying Circus is - We all bloody know that by now! - I'm going to list all of the skits that you will receive when you finally decide to get off your bum and buy this bleeding, essential first volume in A&E's wonderful collection of the entire series of Monty Python!This site lists the 6 episode titles, but here are the 44 skit names. Why? Because I'm pretentious and a massive geek!Disc one: Its Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart(Famous Deaths)/Italian Lesson/Whizzo Butter/Its the arts/Arthur "Two Sheds" Jackson/Picasso-Cycling Race/Funniest Joke in the world/French lecture on sheep aircraft/A man with 3 buttocks/Musical mice/Marriage guidance counselor/Wacky Queen/Working class playwright/Wrestling epilogue/Mouse problem/Court scene with Richelieu/Bicycle repairman/Children's stories/Restaurant sketch/Seduced milkman/Stolen newsreader/Nudge NudgeDisc two: And did those feet/Art gallery/Art critic/Its a man's life in the modern army/Undressing in public/Self defence/Secret service dentists/Confuse-a-cat/Smuggler/Police raid/Newsreader arrested/Erotic film/Silly job interview/Careers advisory board/Burglar-Encyclopedia salesman/Johana Gombolputty/Non Illegal robbery/Crunchy frog/Dull life of a city stock broker/Red Indian theatre/A Scotsman on a horse/Twentieth century voleYou also get extras like: Meet the chaps (a scene and bio of each member of MP), Pythonisms (a glossary), Gillian's Attic (fun with the art), Nudge Nudge & Crunchy Frog (Live from the Hollywood Bowl!), Silly Occupations, and Hysterical figures (scenes from other volumes)Congrats to A&E for the fab job they did on these and to Amazon for selling it to me inexpensively!"

"Oh God! When I heard A&E was putting out Flying Circus on DVD I just about lost my cool. Actually, I did -- I ran around to my fellow co-workers who also like Python, giggling like a schoolgirl. Anyhow, when I finally got the sets I wasn't let down. I bought all sets to date and have watched each disc at least twice. You cannot go wrong with these if you like Flying Circus. If your only exposure to Monty Python is the movie Holy Grail then you may want to ease into the series as it has distinctly British content and is sometimes topical to Brittain of the late 60's and early 70's. But if you like Brittish humor this is definitely for you. Enjoy!"
Python Fans Rejoice!

"Thanks to A&E, hard-core fans can now collect the whole four series of Monty Python's Flying Circus. No more worrying about wearing out the tape or frantically searching for the few episodes that are missing in your collection (like mine). The shows on the disc are chrisp and clear like they were just recorded. The menus are nicely animated (Python-style, of course) and the shows are split up into the famous sketches you know and memorized. A&E should be commaned for bringing the shows onto DVD with great care."
