Where did you buy it from? Amazon.com or something?


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


Oh cool!! I could wait until about February, but I may have to sucumb and buy after that.

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:

I didn't know they even had comedy in Finland, owing to their legendary shyness ;)

innocence, how is Do Not Adjust Your Set? I keep meaning to pick it up.

Maybe someone could help, even though I have the complete Python I have yet to run across a favorite sketch of mine, the Germans vs. the Greeks (philosophers) in a soccer match, an absolute scream, Karl Marx is a surprise substitution for the germans, does anyone know which episode that's in?

I personally really like it! It's very similar to Python in it's humour (seeming as it was written by three of them), and I thoroughly enjoy watching it. It's much better than modern day kids' shows, I tell ya that! :wink:

I did a Google trawl yesterday and found no signs of a possible release of the complete boxset... but I've got to try and stay positive!

Gee, thanks... :wink: But it's partly true. I only have two friends who like British comedy and Python. They're the only ones with whom I can talk about these things.

My cousin introduced me to Monty Python. She showed me Life of Brian. I was quite young at the time, so obviously I didn't get all the jokes. But fortunately I re-discovered them about three years ago.

Maybe someone could help, even though I have the complete Python I have yet to run across a favorite sketch of mine, the Germans vs. the Greeks (philosophers) in a soccer match, an absolute scream, Karl Marx is a surprise substitution for the germans, does anyone know which episode that's in?


That sketch is not in any of the Flying circus episodes. It was originally in the second German episode (Fliegender Zirkus). And it's also shown in the Monty Python Live at Hollywood Bowl. But if you have the complete Flying Circus box set, you should find that sketch in the extras. I can't remember which disc it is on.

Aino, thanks for the info regarding the philosophers soccer match, I've been pulling my hair out trying to find it, well, maybe the hair out of my back anyway.
I'll have to look for it in the extras, it's an alltime fave of mine. Do they have good beer in Finland?

What's this about the box set not being available? Where? I've had it here in Yankland for 6 months or more.

Glad that I could help. :)

Um... good beer? I wouldn't know, I'm not really a drinker. :D

Right, because I'm bloody desperate, I'm taking this into consideration. Seeming as I don't speak Finnish, I can't order a region 0 set like Aino did, so I'm thinking about buying them individually from here. No apparent extra DVDs... argh, this is frustrating! No signs of a region 2 release or it being on TV some time soon! Argh!!! *rips out hair*

What do you think... should I wait?
