If you fell in love with the first series of The Boosh then you'll be overjoyed with this DVD, but don't expect more of the same from series 2. For a start, there's no Zooniverse, which means no Bob Fossil (apart from a guest appearance) and (even worse) no Dixon Bainbridge! Instead, we find Vince and Howard living in a house with Naboo and Bollo (who is now his shamanic familiar).
The format is much more open-ended, as there's no longer any need to base the storylines around zoos and animals, and sometimes this works brilliantly, sometimes less so.
There are plenty of fantastic new characters, the evil bandit Betamax (who is entirely composed of tape), the rather disturbing hermaphrodite merman Ol Greg (don't ask), and my personal favourite The Moon.
The Mighty Boosh has to be one of the most inventive comedies of recent times, I had certainly never seen anything quite like this show and immediately became obsessed by it! This is surely an essential purchase for card carrying Boosh-heads everywhere, and also a fine starting point for anyone who maybe caught the odd episode on its unhelpfully obscure tv slot and is curious to find out what on earth was going on!
For my money, I prefer series 1 to series 2 (the songs are better in the first series as well), but there is genius material to be found throughout. The "Milky Joe" episode is absolutely inspired. And quite, quite mad.
