Top critical review
A familiar feel to a new show.
30 November 2015
I remember reading that Noel Fielding was making a show for Channel 4 without his Mighty Boosh partner Julian Barrett. This is that show. It completely missed it first time round, but managed to find this DVD at a reduced price.
It's what you would expect from Noel; crazed and colourful with a dizzying cast of characters. Julian seems to have been replaced by Tom Meeten, otherwise it's all fairly familiar and comfortable. There isn't much of a structure to the shows, and there are a few misses along with the hits but the show is consistently amusing. Fielding may have been trying to escape the long shadows of the Zooniverse and the Nabootique but he seems to have created a Boosh Lite. Could have been great, instead it's just good.
