2.0 out of 5 stars The Mighty Let Down, 20 Nov. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Mighty Boosh: Live - Future Sailors Tour [DVD] (DVD)
Compared to the first Live DVD and the 3 series that preceeded it, this show was a pretty major let down. There was no "story" to speak of, the comedy was often pretty flat and the songs were just awful. Mostly just rehashed versions of past classics that didnt sound half as good as they did in the show. Bob Fossil was even more annoying than before, which is an achievment in itself when you consider his whole act is to basically be as over the top random and moronic as possible. Even Naboo and Bollo got a tiny part, which they did nothing with. I actually found myself speeding the DVD upto double speed on a number of occasions so I could get past some of the seriously unfunny parts sooner.

To be fair it wasnt all bad. The parts where it was just Howard and Vince talking on stage were quite funny at times. The inclusion of Tony Harrison and the Crack Fox were nice additons to the show, and their attack on the Honey Monster for stealing their crimp style was a nice touch. But what few laughs there were to be had were few and far between.

Overall this really just felt like a poorly thought out shadow of the former Boosh style we all fell in love with. I got the Limited Edition version, and I really regret that decision now. If you want to buy this at all, just get this "normal" one. The extras are NOT worth the additional cost. I really hope they manage to come up with fresh new content for any future shows they do, because this tired rehash of past material, stripped of all the parts that made if funny or memorable, could prove to be the first nail in the Boosh coffin.
