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

eskewedbeef, be strong! You'll get it! Maybe not tomorrow, maybe not next month... but you'll get it, you have to! :D

Right. I'm interested in seeing what kind of Python collections people have. Is Monty Python an obsession to you? Do you have a ridiculous amount of Python stuff (usefull and useless)? Or are you the kind of person who thinks it's just nice to have a few things? I'm probably somewhere in between those two. :)

Here's a pic of my tiny collection (I'm sorry about the quality, I took it with my phone):

I also have a few Python related dvds:

- Fawlty Towers
- Ripping Yarns
- A Fish called Wanda
- How to irritate people

... And I got a red T-shirt made with a text "Nobody expects the Spanish inquisition!" :D I wish I could get some of those official Python T-shirts though. With pictures and all. :roll:

Yes, I'm a fan - just a bit. :wink:

You've never seen Monty Python? Not even one episode of the Flying Circus or a movie? :shock: You poor, poor girl. :wink:
