    There is a new version of the Grail coming out next week. Has anybody seen this or know what the differences are? I did a search here and couldnt find anything on this.

    Looks nice but I think I'll just stick with the regular 2 disc set. I try to keep my double dipping to a bare minimum. For me, repackaging isn't worth an upgrade. Now if it a were better transfer, maybe.[​IMG]

    At least they include the original mono soundtrack on every version of the DVD so far...who else found Michael Palin's 2000 re-recording of his original narration to be so different in tone from the old version as to be distracting?
    I mean fans have watched this film so much over the years you would think that the DVD producers would have thought about this fact and just cleaned up the original narration track as best they could and made do...

    There's nothing to review. It's the same disc that's been out for over a year, with some extra crap thrown in a fancy box.

    Well he used a "Winky" so I'm pretty sure he was kidding.
