have seen this twice now. The first time round it felt too long and needed editing. It does run at over two hours. Second time it seemed to run along nicely. The plot seems a bit secondary, but it must be hard to sustain over 2 hours and during a lengthy tour. Jokes mostly work well, there are few actual duff moments. But this is raw stuff and the unexpected does happen on live tours. It comes across as adult surreal panto which isn't apparant in the shorter series or tv episodes. This is not a bad thing because there are good audience participation moments. Lots of swearing, (if that bothers you)but this is undiluted Boosh and probably closer to what they would have liked to have done on TV. Well worth watching though i prefer the 30 minute stories on TV. WARNING If you are new to the Boosh you are better off starting with seasons 1 and 2 before watching this or a lot of references in this will be lost on you.
