This collection of odds, ends, and live performances will be appreciated mostly by die-hard Monty Python fans (like myself.) It contains on disc one "Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl" and the famous 1998 Aspen Reunion, and on disc 2 "Parrot Sketch Not Included" (hosted by Steve Martin) and the first German episode.
"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.
