More Monty Python...Splunge!
There is yet another box set of Monty Python junk. Of course, if you are a completist like me, you'll need this one. It's called "The Best of Monty Python 40th Anniversary Edition". This actually came out in 2009, but the seven-disc set is now worth the price as it's been reduced from $60 to a close-out price of $14. I got mine from Books Inc. in Palo Alto, but I'm sure they're elsewhere.
Two of the seven discs are repeats of the "Monty Python Live" set from years back and three of the seven discs are the "Personal Best" of "Monty Python" shows, but if you haven't gotten those before, or even if you have, the price of the entire set is less than a single disc was before. The final two discs are two brand-new documentaries, also sold separately for more than this complete set.
Get this, the 16-disc complete "Monty Python's Flying Circus" and the three-disc movie set and you'll have more Python than you'll know what to do with.
Of course, you could then venture into the 10 or so albums Python recorded and then they did at least three or four books, or you could buy all the books in hardback AND paperback or you could start collecting all of their vinyl albums and singles or you could collect the original PAL broadcast tapes kept under lock and key in the Python vaults or you could collect the ulimate Python collectible, a Python himself. Only five of the six limited editions are left....
