Number 3...the larch 2 April 2004
By Daniel J. Hamlow - Published on Amazon.com
Episode 3-How To Recognise Different Types of Trees From Quite A Long Ways Away
The Bicycle Repairman sketch gets great notice, as BR is F.G. Superman's (Michael Palin) secret identity. The joke here is that everybody is dressed in a Superman outfit, but they are clueless in ordinary things. The heavy exaggerated dialogue of two of the Supermans as well as the captions going Clink! Bend! and Inflate!, re the Biff! Bam! and Pow! of Batman TV series is marvelous!
However, the Restaurant Sketch is the highlight, as it shows how being apologetic and taking responsibility for a dirty fork can go too far, making a mountain out of a molehill. The head waiter and manager's overreaction would make people so uncomfortable and self-conscious of pointing out the smallest of mistakes that can be easily remedied.
My favourite is the storytime sketch, where Eric Idle tries to read a children's book but finds it full of adult material, and the scene of the hippo squashing the bunny rabbits had me on the floor laughing when I saw it the first couple of times.
The chicken-wielding knight is pretty busy here, as he coshes the head of a barrister who's so clueless about his client's case, he calls in a gossiping pepperpot, a corpse in a coffin, and Cardinal Richlieu as witnesses, the redcoat compere who introduces the Restaurant Sketch, and goes after the overacting announcer who gets into a raving anti-communist fury before his wife calls him to tea.
The episode ends with the famous "Nudge Nudge" sketch, where Norman (Idle) asks a stockbroker-type city gent (Jones) about his wife with a very salacious bent. "Your wife, does she go, eh? Know what I mean, know what I mean? Say no more, nudge nudge!" and nudges the freaked out city gent. This was originally a sketch offered to Ronnie Barker, who refused it, until it was redone here.
Episode 4-Owl Stretching Time
Well, no owls are stretched here as such, but the running theme is "It's A Man's Life <fill in blank here>," with a guitar-strumming Eric Idle, who is being seduced by beautiful Katya Wyeth, ending with the two of them in bed. Interrupting the sketch is a stern, no-nonsense brigadier (Graham Chapman) who protests the copyright infringement of the army's phrase, "it's a pig's life... man's life, in the modern army."
For those who didn't know why the art critic became scornful of his wife's line, "What ho, dear?" is because she meant it as a pun, "Watteau, dear?" in reference to Jean-Antoine Watteau, a Flemish painter influenced by Rubens. Poor Katya Wyeth!
Terry Jones is constantly foiled in his attempts to discretely undress so he can get into his bathing costume at the beach (is this Brighton, Paignton, or Margate?)
However, the best sketch is the RMS (royal master sergeant) (John Cleese) who teaches his class how to defend themselves against...fresh fruit, with Eric Idle being the wiseacre who keeps asking him about pointed sticks, which earns him a harsh "Shut up!" This sketch must've been written by Cleese or Chapman, as their sketches involve people being verbally abused, often scornfully and/or at loud volume. This features the debut of the 16-Ton weight.
Reviewed by Mr. Valencia Orange eating a Botticelli's Venus who knows how to defend himself against anyone wielding a gooseberry and a dirty fork.
Number 4... the end

The Greatest Episode 13 Oct. 2000
By Papi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This is the greatest episode ever of Monty Python. It's hilarious. I was laughing every second. There is a German version out that is awesome. This is definately the best though.

The Avangardists Of Modern Humour 26 Sept. 2000
By Bjorn Clasen - Published on Amazon.com
To this day, Monty Python remains THE idol and source of inspiration to humourists all around. »Monty Python's Flying Circus« made the group famous, and it is the best ever to come out, not only from Monty Python, not only from Britain... but humour in general!
Highlights on this tape: »Children's Stories«, »Restaurant Sketch« and »Undressing In Public«.
Own it!
