Editors Note
Note Monty Python is not a man. Monty Python is six men. Consisting of British actors Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin, and American Terry Gilliam, the hugely influential comedy troupe evolved from Cambridge University's Footlight Society in the late 1960s in order to become one of the most worshipped comedy acts of all time. Groundbreaking both in terms of its offbeat acting style and radical approach to the most controversial, taboo subjects (including sex, race, and politics), the legendary series MONTY PYTHON'S FLYING CIRCUS would forever change the face of sketch comedy. After the series' demise, the unit would go on to create several big screen classics, including MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL and MONTY PYTHON'S LIFE OF BRIAN, as well as spawning major Hollywood careers for its members (most notably, Gilliam, director of THE FISHER KING and TWELVE MONKEYS).^This release contains: "The Golden Age of Ballooning" (episode 40); "Michael Ellis" (episode 41); "The Light Entertainment War" (episode 42); "Hamlet" (episode 43); "Mr. Neutron" (episode 44); and "Party Political Broadcast (episode 45).
