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.
Lets 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 thats certainly the case with the six episodes here. Lead characters Howard and Vince are found working in the Nabootique this time, and its not long before theyre joined by some old favourites. Cue Bob Fossil, the sublime Shamen, and the Moon, among others.
If theres one downside to The Mighty Booshs third season, it is perhaps a little too much self-indulgence, which occasionally tempers things. But then thats set against some brilliantly ambitious episodes, some of the finest surrealist humour on the telly, and the terrific Crack Fox.
Theres little denying that as a show, The Mighty Boosh can easily be classed as bizarre, bonkers, and straight-out odd. But here, thats turned into the shows strength. And given the side-splitting laughs it continues to generate, we wouldnt have it any other way. --Jon Foster
