The worst thing about Monty Python is the fans.

I love Monty Python, but I have to admit that I like the TV show a lot better than the movies. My favorite movie is Meaning of Life because it's closest in form to the TV show.

I'd buy a Flying Circus complete box set in a heartbeat.

No, that would definitely be And Now For Something Completely Different since it's a collection of redone skits from the series.
In 2007, I bought a PS3 for 4 specific titles; in 2̶0̶1̶4̶ 2015, half of them haven't been released yet.

I received my copy Friday and watched it today. I never watched the movie before and I really enjoyed it. Also, the transfer is pretty good. I'd give it 4/5 for the Video quality considering the movie was made in the 70's.

However at one point in the movie (at around 62 minutes more precisely) there is a flaw as two consecutive shots haven't been remastered at all. These two shots last for about 30 seconds together so it isn't a big deal.

Yes, because it is in 1.66:1.

It's discounted at Amazon all the time. Not much point of a bluray release since it was finished and largely shot on tape.

How does the DVD look due to the difference in PAL and NTSC?

But a Blu-Ray would take up so much less space and have less artifacting and stuff... I also hate the menus on the DVDs and the way they spread the special features out. But yes, they are still very much worth owning.

The DVDs look excellent. The menus are annoying, but that's true of the movies too. I can't imagine the shows ever looking better.

People said that about Star Trek: TOS, Star Trek: The Next Generation, and The Twilight Zone as well.

And unlike those shows, Monty Python's Flying Circus was not shot on film.

I'd still buy a BD set if it meant less discs and it if wasn't more than 10-15% more than the DVD set.

This was a film that I first saw in the theater in NYC when it was first released. And on a HUGE screen to boot. I also had the pleasure of getting a complimentary coconut and meeting/getting an autograph from Terry Jones, who was at the theater promoting the film.

It's an acquired taste and humor is a relative thing. Seeing it for the very first time as I did, we were pissing our pants. We were all Python fans from having seen the series on Channel 13 (PBS) in NYC, when it first ran in the US in the early 70's.

I've got the last DVD version that came out and will likely buy the blu at Best Buy for $12.99 later today.

Does anyone know why all of the voice overs were re-recorded? It's slightly annoying and I can't imagine why they wouldn't have used the original.

I guess Narration is a better term than Voice Over.
