It's still too short!!!, 18 November 2009
Author: cantona_x from Shanghai, China

What a pleasure to finally watch the whole 6 episode instead of the BBC lawyer's cut!

Since the format is so close to the BEATLES ANTHOLOGY,this should really really expand to 8 episode as well.

flying circus still has lots of stuff to explore (the revolutionary free structure is just touched upon in the doc); meaning of life deserve a single episode as well, at least mentioning Jonsey's fun ride in CANNES...

and so on and so on...

Anyway, I'm extremely satisfied with this set, and it truly truly is must own for any avid python fan!
