Disc #2 starts with a 1989 retrospective of the group, hosted by Steve Martin. Steve talks about Monty Python for a few minutes, followed by an hour of sketches from their classic TV series. This is very much a hit or miss affair, as some of their weaker skits are included and some of their best sketches are not shown in their entirety.Read more ›
just be aware of what you are and are not getting. would have given it 5 plus stars if the parrot sketch were included.

"Hollywood Bowl" is the Woodstock of Python concerts. It is extremely funny, and has some lesser known works like the Lecture in Comedy and several Neil Innes songs. The Aspen Reunion doesn't seem as spontaneous as it should, but has some interesting facts and some funny moments, and its great to see the elderly Pythons together on stage for the first time in many years. "Parrot Sketch Not Included" was released on video several years ago, and I watched it many times. Don't miss the very funny final segment (after the end credits). And the German show is...well, it has its moments.
DVD quality varies. The German show and Hollywood Bowl performance look grainy, the Aspen Reunion is broadcast quality, and "Parrot Sketch Not Included" generally looks a bit soft. The disc includes as special features some clips from the Flying Circus shows, "Pythonisms", and troupe filmographies.
