Montyh Python's Personal Best**super special**
The Personal Best of
Monty Python's Flying Circus

6 DVD Box Set

retail price - $44.95
copacetic super special price - $18.88


Here's a chance to get just about all of the favorite Monty Python skits, sketches, animations and more -- on six hour+ length DVDs, all for one amazing price!  The contents of each of these six discs is chosen, and introduced by, the titular Python (see the complete listings below, for all the details) who also provides a bit of commentary along the way (although we're not quite sure what exactly transpires in this department on Graham Chapman's disc, not having watched this one yet...).  Just about all of the most celebrated (and imitated) Python sketches are here.  As with any greatest hits collection, some of the organic brilliance of the original sequencing is lost, but, that said, this is a spectacularly cost-effective way to introduce yourself or someone else to the genius of Monty Python's Flying Circus, one the greatest -- and funniest (and most absurd [not to mention brilliant (did we say most imitated [and, certainly, most digressive])]) --  television series of all time.

So, there you have it!  Is that an amazing array of classic material, or what?  It's hard to believe you can have it all for a price this low, but you can.  How is this possible?  We're not sure, but we can only surmise that A & E did not promote this item as well as they should have and was left with an supply overage that they were then forced to liquidate -- and that's when we managed to grab a batch to sell at this price.  Their loss is your gain!  Please understand that our special price is the result of this one time purchase.  Once these copies are sold the special is over.  You have been warned.
