Product Description

Vince Noir and Howard Moon return for a third series of this cult comedy hit featuring another fantabulous mix of surreal humour, musical interludes, shiny clothes and strange haircuts.

Now working in Naboo's second hand shop, 'Nabootique', Howard mainly whiles away the hours in delusions of grandeur whilst unsuccessfully trying to sell his esoteric jazz records, while Vince lays around in a hammock playing loud music, trying on wigs and finding Howard ludicrous.

They assemble their usual accomplices, including Naboo the enigma and Bollo the ape, reunite us with some familiar faces including the Hitcher, the Moon and Bob Fossil, as well as introducing us to a whole host of new characters.

From Amazon.co.uk

Is there anything on television quite like The Mighty Boosh? Bluntly, who cares, for the ongoing adventures and antics of Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt remain a comedic treat, even if season three does have its up and down moments.

Let’s temper that, quickly: The Mighty Boosh on one of its lesser days can still generate more laughs than 90% of other modern-day comedy series, and that’s certainly the case with the six episodes here. Lead characters Howard and Vince are found working in the Nabootique this time, and it’s not long before they’re joined by some old favourites. Cue Bob Fossil, the sublime Shamen, and the Moon, among others.

If there’s one downside to The Mighty Boosh’s third season, it is perhaps a little too much self-indulgence, which occasionally tempers things. But then that’s set against some brilliantly ambitious episodes, some of the finest surrealist humour on the telly, and the terrific Crack Fox.

There’s little denying that as a show, The Mighty Boosh can easily be classed as bizarre, bonkers, and straight-out odd. But here, that’s turned into the show’s strength. And given the side-splitting laughs it continues to generate, we wouldn’t have it any other way. --Jon Foster

Series 3 is sort of uneven - three standout episodes that are strong enough to overwhelm the lazy, self indulgent strand running through all six. The main problem for me was that they brought to the fore those wonderful details that added unique texture in series 1 & 2. For example, crimping. Before crimping had a name, it was something that cropped up every now and then in a natural, brilliant sort of way. In series three there's an entire episode dedicated to crimping. Knowing it's something that can be taught, can be practiced and even copied just sorta cheapened it. The same goes for the Council of Shamen, and particularly Tony Harrison who's been transformed into a hard living drug fiend.

The other big problem is that the Boosh now inhabit the same space as a lot of the real world, and it's not a particularly great one - it's full of Camden posers. In Party, they're even told by Vince that they're the chosen people. They're arrogant, shallow body fascists. That was charming when Vince was the only one and it was taken to a surrealist extreme, but now it's just irritating. That's one of the bigger problems - Vince has stopped being lovable and the friendship between him and Howard descends into point-scoring and spite.

The standouts are Eels (the Hitcher remains reliably nasty), Journey to the Centre of Punk and especially the Crack Fox (definitely Julian Barrett's best turn and an effective comedy/horror mix). Even those have moments you'd rather weren't there, just as the weaker episodes have moments you want to savour.

Mighty Boosh 3 is not as good as their previous work but it's still better than any other comedy on British TV. I reckon series 4 will be a vast improvement and in the meantime, it's still not that bad. They just set the bar so high before that it was hard to top it the third time out.

Ace fantastical comedy series loses the comedy and becomes a massive self-congratulatory tugfest. Gutted. Interestingly, the children in the family's loyalty is unwavering whereas the big un's are all agreed that the funny has done a runner, that may mean nowt but may mean everything. I hate saying this, but for me it's time to put the Boosh to bed. I'll look forward to whatever the chaps get up to next time though, as a team or as individuals.

For me, a fan of a long, long time, this was a big, bit letdown. This has nothing to do with "snobbishness" or "not liking them because they're too popular". I quite honestly could not care less what anyone thinks of the things I like, and the Mighty Boosh has never been any exception.

That said, since the've become more popular, Noel Fielding in particular seems to have disappeared further and further up his own arse, hanging out with celebrities &c. You might say, Vince Noir has consumed and taken over Fieldings personality. The reason I'm bringing this up is because it shows through on this here series three. In many ways, its views like a self-parody, with Fielding and, sadly, Barratt as well simply playing exaggerated versions or Noir & Moon respectively.

Its disappointing when you consider the two years, and the studio time & BBC funding they've had, and most of what they've done is in many places regurgitated loads of ideas, and indeed entire storylines in some cases, from the second series. Also, in many of the places where they havent done this, they've simply fallen back on exaggerated versions on things popularly associated with the Boosh, cases in point being the crimping and the scat singing.

However, all this said, I'm still gonna give it three stars for some occasions where the magic I fell in love with when I first got into the Boosh is still apparent, such as the Eels. This seems to show that the magics not quite gone yet, and theres still hope for the next series. Also, Rich Fulcher's parts are all great - his characters, including the highly welcome return of Bob Fossil are one of the biggest redeemers of series three.

...Before the third series came out I had previously seen one or two episodes, but I was determined to watch this, and guess what, I didn't regret it. The thing I did regret was the last episode, 'The Chokes', for me this didn't seem very 'booshy', perhaps because Richard Ayoade helped write the script, who knows.

After watching it I then obtained the other two series, and and the radio. As many people have said this is the weaker out of all of them, the first being the best. Yet we must remember that they had a number of years to prefect the first series. As most of you reading this will know that within four years they have produced three series and a live show, and so it would only be expected. Personally if they were to have more time, this would of been better (also consider that Barratt now has two sons, which of course would of had some affect).

The third series focuses more on their relationship, and less on them leaving the shop to go on adventures, and for me personally that works perfectly, though Vince has changed dramatically, whether that is a good or bad thing it is up to you. In all this a good series and if you enjoyed their previous work you will enjoy this, it may take a bit of getting used to, but it does grow, trust me.
