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
