A must-have, 4 Mar. 2009
I cannot recommend this box highly enough. Anyone with a sense of humour, nay anyone with a detectable pulse, should own this marvellous box. The picture and sound quality is excellent given the age of the material, and while the extras are - per force - limited, it is still an excellent package.
Today, 40 years after the first shows, it is hard to imagine what it must have been like when this gang of mad-men first appeared on the BBC. I don't think the viewers had any idea what had hit them. And while some of the cultural references are lost 4 decades down the line (most people will mercifully have forgotten just how dull TV otherwise was in those days!), the sheer quality of the comedy still shines through. The "Dead Parrot" knows no age. Buy this box and enjoy it - preferably together with someone new to Monty Python - as we have done with our teenaged children.
