    I just bought "Monthy Python Live!" from Best Buy on a whim. I love Monty Python and was in the mood for some light comedy. . .
    Before I opened it, I went to Amazon.com (and lots of other sights: bits, talk, etc.) to check out any reviews.
    Amazon (and dvdtalk) claimed a release date of 10/23.
    Is this the correct release date? Did Best Buy prematurely put this out? There were like 100 copies of it in the Comedy shelves.

    They put it out very early at the Best Buy where I bought it, as I got it about 8 or 10 days ago. I was thinking I had missed the release, and then found out it was out two weeks early. Now I need to find the receipt and get my extra three bucks back since it's on sale Tuesday.

    This isn't by any chance Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl is it? I've been waiting a long time to replace my vhs of that.

    Yes, it includes the Hollywood Bowl performance, as well as the reunion shown on HBO (complete with Graham Chapman in urn), the first German episode, and one other bit that eludes me.

    I saw this one about two weeks ago at my local Best Buy. It surprised me too because I was certain I couldn't have missed a Monty Python release. Well I've got mine on order now and its been shipped. I look forward to this along with Holy Grail, I think that pretty much completes my Monty Python collection.

    For some reason I missed the announcement of this title. Thanks, everyone, for the info. I just placed an order at Deep Discount DVD for a copy. Any set with both "The Hollywood Bowl" and the HBO special is a must buy for me.

    Just out of curiosity....
    What kinds of extras are on the disc (specifically the "post troupe career highlights"?)
    Thanks,
    Derek

    Don't get TOO excited. The Hollywood Bowl movie is pan-and-scan, and pretty damn medicre transfer-wise. It's watchable, but not really up to a normal DVD standard.

    Is it pan&scan or full-frame/open matte?
