Product Description

The series features the band as struggling musicians, alongside a load of comedic guest stars including regulars Simon Farnaby as Sloman, their perverse neighbour; Ryan Pope as their iniquitous manager Chevy; and Sophie Wu as Zoe, Stef's long-suffering girlfriend.

As well as a bunch of wild music videos, the six-part series sees the band trying to cope with day-to-day challenges like sharing a dingy East London flat, trying to impress girls when they have no cash, and working out who has to sleep on the kitchen floor. Who hasn't been there, right? Share in the guys' successes and failures as they drag their way through a sea of bizarre obstacles and unsavoury characters toward pop stardom.

EXTRAS:
• Life Is A Musical – single take version
• Music Video Outtakes
• Outtakes
• The Sloman Show Extended Scenes
• Behind The Beast

From Amazon.co.uk

Initially coming to prominence through the many millions of viewers who viewed their work on YouTube, The Midnight Beast transferred to television with some success. Mixing in comedy with the quality music that helped win them so many fans, The Midnight Beast centres on the three members of the band--Dru Wakely, Ashley Horne and Stefan Abingdon. The TV show is in sitcom format, and it then fictionalises the story of the trio’s quest for success.

Parallels to Flight Of The Conchords are perhaps inevitable, yet The Midnight Beast band members have enough identity of their own. The show simply comes alive when the music kicks in, dragging a little in the segments in between. But that music? Just brilliant. Ripping apart the conventions of modern popular manufactured songs, there’s a clear edge to what The Midnight Beast does here, and it’s frequently very, very funny.

It perhaps goes without saying that The Midnight Beast isn’t to all tastes, as few things are. However, if you can work through the acted elements, and want to enjoy some wonderfully fearless musical work, then this is brilliant. All six episodes of the show’s first series are included, and the disc has some welcome extra features too. As well as behind the scenes material, there are traditional outtakes, and also some unmissable musical outtakes as well. Extended material and a single take version of Life Is A Musical are very welcome additions to the package.

A quality release, this. The show may have a couple of problems, but it’s got so many rewatch moments, that it rewards a DVD purchase, many times over. –-Jon Foster

Since about May, I've been kind of crazy about E4 Shows. I like Misfits and absolutely loved The Inbetweeners. Then this came out, which is weird, because The Midnight Beast are my favourite band. And I loved it! It was funny, the songs were good, it was a great show. I know we haven't seen it all yet, but so far I'm not disappointed!

Fantastic show, a little bit weird just like the band! The songs are amazing and ridiculously catchy and the ideas they have for songs are ace! For people who just want to have a laugh with great songs and great videos this is the show I would recommend. I'm so glad this YouTube band will get more recognition, thank whoever gave them this chance

After avidly watching the TV series I wondered if my husband would enjoy these on dvd. I was soon proven wrong! With in minutes of it arriving in the post, my husband and daughter were dancing round the living room having a ball!
There are also plenty of additional extras on the dvd which definately make it worth while ordering! ENJOY!!

quite good series, last eposide was a bit of let down as it showed all the vids again, but it has great potential, Tmb are a great parody band and their tracks are always top of the itunes charts
