It just doesn’t get any better than this. The silly noises and cheap laughs you hear emanating from your expensive stereo speakers are intentional. The jerky, sometimes spastic movements of the characters on your television screen are actually an advanced form of the comedic arts, developed by the British virtuosos of Monty Python’s Flying Circus. In fact, this is how television was intended to look and sound. If your television ever produces the sight or sound of rich drama or accomplished acting, there is most assuredly something drastically wrong with your set. Pop one of these cassettes into your VCR immediately to avoid further degradation of your telly. With: GRAHAM CHAPMAN as Mrs. Trepidatius JOHN CLEESE as Doris TERRY GILLIAM as The Swiss Mountaineer ERIC IDLE as Mr. Customer Man TERRY JONES as Mr. Cheap Laugh and MICHAEL PALIN as Mr. Very Bigliar Conceived, written and performed by Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin. Animations by Terry Gilliam. Produced and directed by Ian MacNaughton.

Review:

Six more opportunities to "Spot the Looney." This boxed set contains the final six episodes from the third and last full season of Monty Python's Flying Circus. More discriminating Monty Python fans are directed to episodes from seasons 1 and 2, also available on VHS and DVD. But completists can fast-forward or click through clunkers such as Prices on the Planet Algon or the rather obvious game-show sketch Prejudice to such beloved sketches from the Python pantheon as The Cheese Shop, a fermented curd variation on the famed Parrot Sketch, in which John Cleese is unable to get any "cheesy comestibles" from woefully understocked proprietor Michael Palin; the extended epic Cycling Tour, perhaps Palin's finest half-hour; the increasingly surreal Tudor Jobs Agency, in which an intrepid smut confiscator (Palin again) finds himself seemingly transported back to Elizabethan times, where he turns "the tide of Spanish porn"; Cleese's lupin-stealing highwayman Dennis Moore; the Oscar Wilde Sketch, in which Wilde (Graham Chapman), Whistler (Cleese), and Shaw (Palin) match wits in an escalatingly profane game of verbal oneupsmanship ("Your Highness is like a stream of bat's piss....") and the self-explanatory Dirty Vicar Sketch. --Donald Liebenson
