personal favourite sketches include the worlds funniest joke, including the 'rather poor taste' hitler joke with it, and the camp soldiers. whenever i want cheering up i think of john cleese camping it up in military uniform and going 'ooooooooh!' and i puts a huge grin on my face!

oh, and the musical mice! hahahahahahahahahahaha! i really very nearly died when i first saw that! :P

My favourite Monty Python sketches have to be the upperclass twit of the year, the poofy judges, camp soldiers, the idiot in society, the policemen with the silly voices, ministry of silly walks, the silly vicar, the Hungarian phrasebook... I don't think my list ever ends...

thought I'd drege up this thread, seen as though we've all been perving over Michael Palin and I've been talking about it lerds.

Just watched "And now for something completely differnet" and I'd forgotten how funny it was!! Which is everyone's favourite film?

Ah, yes. Perving. *evil cackle evil cackle, cough*

I got the Best of DVD set on Saturday... it's abso-bloody-lutely brilliant! I had seen all the films before, and I think my favourite film is the Holy Grail.

I've been annoying everyone by quoting sketches, specifically the Hungarian Phrasebook and the Lumberjack song ones. Really annoying everyone. :P

The DVD set is good isn't it? I almost fainted at how cheap it was on Amazon. Now, all I need is the entire set of Flying Circus DVDs...

Ah well, Christmas is a-coming...

They only do the entire set in region 1, confonnit. At the moment anyway.

I spent all Saturday searching for the Best of, and found it for £22.99 in WHSmiths.

*waits impatiently until whole series is released*

Hm... favourite Python film? That is indeed a difficult question to answer. I like them all! :D Sometimes I prefer Holy Grail but at the moment I think that Brian is great. And Meaning of Life is not as bad as everyone keeps saying. There's some classic bits in it. "Tiger" in the jungle, the sex education etc. Sure, it's a bit random in some points but nonetheless - I like it. :)

EDIT: I have the Flying Circus box set with all four series! It is from the US but it's Region 0. So you can watch it on European dvd players as well.

Would that work on an English DVD player? Or would it have to be multi-regional? I've heard that you can change it with a few buttons...

My favourite is Meaning Of Life. Brian is my least favourite.

Ooh... but I don't have a region free DVD player, so it might not work. I wouldn't have enough money anyway :(

Thought I'd say that this is one of my favourite sketches ever. I was slightly disappointed that it wasn't on the Best of DVD, but I saw it when FC was on Paramount 2 for a while. *scrambles around internet trying to find screencaps seeming as she is a cap fiend*

Haha! Same here!

I also love this sketch is great as well!

When you watch it, it's just so funny! You can't believe that it was writeen decades ago!

It should work on all dvd players because it's "code free"/Region 0. :) So yes, I think it should work on English dvd players as well.

Well, not exactly... amazon doesn't have a branch in Finland. :wink: I ordered it from a Finnish internet shop. But if I'm not completely wrong, there should be a Region 2 version of the box set released some time next year! (if you have the patience to wait that long) :D
