I'm sure there are so many bits in the life of brian that we haven't noticed, or that are simply so bizarre or subtle that only the pythons themselves know about it. In The Holy Grail, the commentaries were AWESOME! i'd never have noticed Eric cracking up in the witch scene if they hadn't pointed it out in the commentary... or that michael had stuffed his cheeks with cotton wool to make himself look fatter as Dennis!

There are so many things/inside scoops i feel i'm missing out on in life of brian - like 'WHAT THE HELL IS WITH THE ALIENS?!?'

Who else agrees with me?!

IT ALREADY HAS!

The criterion DVD has two audio commentaries and deleted scenes. Trouble is you have to import it from the US. (And it has only 2-channel sound.)

It is region free, as far as I know. (In any case most or at least some DVD players can be made region free easily. )

In fact mrs. Clive who posted that other thread about a Life of Brian documentary didn't know this either. With the permission of the python office - so she said - I sent her a copy.

The columbia tristar region 2 LoB has 5.1 sound and slightly better picture quality, but not the deleted scenes or commentary. So all in all I would recommend the US criterion DVD.
(A 5.1 soundtrack is very nice in drama or action but I really don't think it matters for LoB. All conversation is centre or front channel I suppose. Unless perhaps except for the mountain speech bit... where they keep shouting "Speak up!" in the rear channels perhaps???)

Yes, but it exists and you can import it.
I can think of more important things, such as a British / European Flying Circus set.
