5.0 out of 5 stars (Nearly) Everything In One Box 6 Sep 2009
Format:DVD
What do you get in this deceptively small box? Virtually the complete works of the Monty Python team on TV and in the cinema, that's what. All four series of 'Monty Python's Flying Circus' - 45 episodes in total - plus feature film spin-off 'And Now For Something Completely Different'. On top of that, you get Special Edition releases of the feature films 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail', 'Monty Python's Life of Brian' and 'Monty Python's The Meaning of Life', plus the live show 'Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl'. As such, this set represents fantastic value for money. The television series discs are pretty much bare-bones aside from the episodes, but the Special Editions of the films are loaded with extras, including archive footage, commentaries, and even new sketches from the team, specially filmed for the DVDs.

Serious, hardcore collectors will probably be able to note the omissions from this set - two episodes of the Pythons' German television series 'Monty Python's Fliegende Zirkus' (though I've no idea what the rights situation is with those at present), the 'Live At Aspen' reunion programme and sketches recorded for BBC TV's 'Monty Python Night' in 1999. But these are fairly niche items primarily of interest to die-hard fans, and die-hard fans will no doubt either have acquired them already, and will know how to do so. What this set boils down to is 15 discs of comedy greatness, and a fantastic (and space-saving!) way of collecting all the UK R2 'Monty Python' DVDs in one go for a very reasonable price. Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars I don't like the packing 5 April 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The merits or otherwise of the Monty Python oeurve will, no doubt, be argued about for many years to come. Personally, I'm a huge fan and am glad that [almost] everything is gathered in this set.

However, whoever designed the packaging deserves to come to a sticky end in a Terry Gilliam animation or have the sixteen ton weight dropped on him. The outside box is not prepossessing, amusing or informative. Inside this are three self-contained disc holders which could hardly have been designed in a worse way. The films and the tv shows are mixed up and a magnifying glass is required to read the information on the discs, which is minimal. Discs overlap one another and it is very difficult to get them out without damaging the contents. It is also difficult to replace them. The three 'volumes' are identical in design so that they give no clue as to individual contents. There is no booklet and nothing at all in the way of an episode guide for the tv shows.

I have given four stars because the material is, in my opinion, top comedy but I have to remove one for the pathetic presentation of this great material.

5.0 out of 5 stars Full of great stuff! 24 Feb 2010
Format:DVD
For fans of Python wanting to get their material on DVD, this is the place to start - and end!
Many hours of great viewing here and the DVD's of Holy Grail, Brian and Meaning of Life are the special editions which mean you get plenty of great extras.
Particularly good is the documentary on the making of 'Life of Brian'.

Everything you could possibly want, Python wise, is here.

Superb!

5.0 out of 5 stars Monty Python Box Set 13 Jan 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful set for Monty Python fans both young and old. As well as the Monty Python Tv programmes there are the feature length films, "The Life of Brian" and "The meaning of Life", all contained in 15 DVDs. This set will keep you quiet (apart from the laughter!) for a good long while! My teenage grandson LOVED this Christmas gift and it is great to see him get pleasure from something that I enjoyed!

Please ignore this review if you have no interest in foreign language subtitles.

Only 3 out of 8 of the features of this box set have subtitles in the languages advertised above. I was after French subtitles and only the "Flying Circus" discs have them. I love Python but this was a gift for a non-English speaking relative and the description provided by Amazon is simply incorrect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the most incredible show ever 15 Jun 2013
By Mike
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Whilst it is great to have all this together in one place, the pythons and their production company really need to consider including some lost gems (such as the german shows which are amongst the best they've ever done.) An excellent place for those new to python but completists may want to wait for another anniversary because they will undoubtedly re-release it with many extras. Disappointingly, the series discs only have the episodes with no extras at all, but the movies are chock a block with them. Enjoyable every time I watch it and it still makes me laugh out loud.

5.0 out of 5 stars As it says on the box. 19 Jan 2011
Format:DVD
It might not have the German Episodes or any of the reunion specials, but an affordable box set that contains the complete Flying Circus, all the films, and all the documentaries, outtakes and commentaries on the films is a very nice thing!
