Guide Review - Monty Python's Flying Circus - Vol. 8 (DVD)

Not all episodes of Monty Python's "Flying Circus" are equally funny. With the episodes on this DVD you can't be wrong, however. Besides other hilarious episodes, sketches and some of Gilliam's fabulous surreal cartoons it contains the "Spam" sketch. Finally, you can find out why unsolicited email is named after food.
