Have you watched Monty Python recently? Have you forgotten the ending to Holy Grail?
These Monty Python DVD Box sets are perfect for all Monty Python fans. I recently had some friend round one evening and one of them said they hadn’t watched a Monty Python film or TV Show in ages, so I pulled out the The Complete Monty Python’s Flying Circus 16 Ton Megaset my pride and joy and we went through 2 of the 16 DVD’s within my set. We had such a laugh and after we talked for ages about all the times Monty Python had influenced us in the past and how much growing up we watched them.
Monty Python was miles ahead of anything on TV at the time of their popularity, bordering on the controversial side of religion and politics they weren’t afraid to tackle sensitive issues. Below is a prime example, could you imagine this episode being played on primetime TV slots today? Not a chance we are far too politically correct or not as it happens LOL
My friend asked where I purchased my box set and I told him AMAZON, That got me thinking how many people would love to have a FULL BOX SET of Monty python DVD’S ready to get out on those boring nights in when the TV is rubbish. Well, I went to AMAZON and found some great box sets- You could say ‘ The Holy grail of box sets’ Ha Ha I had to say that! Sorry….. Oh stop saying sorry all the time, sorry this and sorry that. Ops there I go again! another Monty Python quote, I just can’t help it.
Here’s my TOP 5 Box sets found on AMAZON.
Some are US & CANADA REGIONAL 1 DVD’S & some are UK REGIONAL 2 DVD’S so please be careful when you order to buy the right one for where you live.
#1 Monty Python: Almost Everything Collection
This is a Regional 2 UK box set- 14 DVD’s packed with hours of fun and laughter. Priced around £50 or $68 its a good box set and not too expensive.
Everything a Monty Python fan could ever want in one gloriously fabulous, ludicrously definitive, outrageously luxurious 14 disc box set! Includes: Monty Python’s The Meaning Of Life – Special Edition, Monty Python’s Life Of Brian – Special Edition, Monty Python And The Holy Grail – Special Edition, And Now For Something Completely Different & The Complete Flying Circus TV Series 1-4 SCREENED/AWARDED AT: BAFTA Awards, European Film Awards, …Monty Python: Almost Everything Collection – 14-DVD Box Set ( Monty Python’s Flying Circus / Monty Python and the Holy Grail / Life of Brian / The meaning of life.
This box set has all the movies but NOT ALL THE TV Series for that you will need the MEGA SET BELOW.
Comes in a great collctors box and looks amazing. This box set got a rating of 4.5 stars on AMAZON only not getting a 5 due to its a Regional 2 UK only format disc set. So some people who purchased it in AMERICA had to have DVD players capable of playing regional 2 disc and not everyone has them. Please check yours before purchasing!
#2 Monty Python Holy Trinity
This is one of the best selling Monty Python special edition DVD box sets ever produced.
Regional 2 box set so perfect for US & CANADA or other countries if you have a multi-regional DVD player. 4 DVD’s in total the three films: LIFE OF BRIAN-MEANING OF LIFE-HOLYGRAIL plus the special edition DVD this is packed with tons of unused clips and scenes that were dropped due to worry about being a bit too controversial.
#3 The Complete Monty Python’s Flying Circus 16 Ton Megaset
This is the ultimate dream set to have, its the one I waited for ages to be able to afford and finally, I got one.
This unassuming case is packed with 16 tons of funny: 14 discs of MONTY PYTHON’S FLYING CIRCUS, packed with every episode from the programme’s four-year run, plus 2 MONTY PYTHON LIVE! discs featuring – well, you figure it out.
While to the uninitiated they may look like ordinary .65 oz. digital video discs, due to the unique physics of comedy (it’s like quantum but with fewer dead cats), each disc actually weighs a full metaphoric ton! Please remember to lift with your knees.
