Pedro by Pedro Martinez

Duane, May 7, 2015

For what it's worth, the product synopsis appears to be for Derek Jeter's autobiography. While Perdro and Jeets are both hall-of-fame worthy players, about all they have in common is the hall of fame. Advance excerpts of Pedro's book point to a memorable and funny story. If this book is comparable to Ball Four, I'm in.

The Complete Monty Python's Flying Circus: 16-Ton Megaset
The Complete Monty Python's Flying Circus: 16-Ton Megaset

Duane, November 1, 2006

I keep hearing that this is 'complete', but it does not mention the previous incarnation of this DVD set, which also claimed to be 'complete' but was not. Sadly, two of the funniest routines from perhaps their funniest episode, #38 on disc 12, are completely excised. I wrote to A&E and pointed this out, and a kind person responded that even though the two routines are on the original BBC tapes and shooting scripts for the series (in the physical world, mind you), the routines never existed. The person who wrote this is likely now working for the Very Special Administration.

Until there is an admission that the two bits are missing or restored with an explanation of why they went missing in the first place, such dishonesty is not worth they price they want.
