Let's squeeze some money out of the fans!!
on 12 January 2010
The live show itself isn't bad if you're a Boosh fan (and I assume that only existing fans will be getting this edition). But no surprises - a lot of sketches and a few songs (I remember the band playing a lot more when I saw them at Wembley though), rather than a completely new Boosh story.
But the Limited Edition is simply not worth the extra money. You get a four disc edition of the DVD, but it's really a two disc version of the 2008 tour and he other two discs are the last Live Boosh DVD (2006), so most of the people buying this one will already have them already.
The extras from the 2008 tour are not worth bothering with unless you are desperate to own everything they have ever released on DVD - a fairly shoddy behind the scenes/on tour film and some bits and pieces that don't add up to much.
You also get a pack of Outrage cards (Boosh Top Trumps), a Boosh Belt Buckle, and a tin with the DVDs in it. All quite good in themselves, but all destined to remain in the pack once you've had a look at them once.
For content, stick with the single disc standard edition - you aren't missing much. The non-DVD elements are quite good but the DVD itself simply smacks of a complete lack of effort. An exercise in style over substance, and taking advantage of the loyalty of Boosh fans to generate as much money as possible.
