Best DVD you will ever buy!

If you love Monty Python this is the perfect gift to treat yourself or a friend! Each episode is hilarious and the DVDs are well paced (usually three to four episodes per disc). There are also fun "useless tidbits" for each episode and the menu layout is great (very Gilliam inspired). I highly recommended getting the 16 Ton mega box set as there are so many funny sketches on it that never make it on best-of shows or "And Now for Something Completely Different," but are well worth watching again. You will not regret this purchase.
