I'm wondering about purchasing Monty Python's Flying Circus since I am a huge fan of them. One thing I've heard about is the quality on the disc. Some of the things I have heard from people is that it is not good quality and not remastered. IMDB also says that some of the episodes are edited and are not complete. I did used to have the Flying Circus laserdiscs and some VHS tapes but I sold the LD's (heck, I sold all of my LD's, but I did have only about 35 of them) and plus the VHS tapes are 13 years old and worn. I remember those were from the PBS airings and a bit edited. I would like to know if the DVD's are unedited or not. Also does the Proust Competition have the word "masterbaution" or is it edited. Also, what is the case for The Black Spot? Next and last thing I want to know about is how I should buy the discs. Many of the individual discs are OOP and that leaves only the boxes. There are two different kinds, 7 mini boxes with two discs that cost about $30 or the complete collection which I saw at my Suncoast for (gulp!) a whopping $199! I am a hardcore MP fan and would love to have just the whole collection but I can't shell out that much money... I think the 2-disc box is good in a way. If I buy the first two boxes I have the complete first season of MPFC and so on with the others. It's probably the way to go especally at $30. Still I am very undecided and anyone who has the discs or any of the boxes that give me help, thanks in advance.
