Series 1: Might be fair to say it's creative but not necessarily always funny. But heck : Credit for taking a risk and doing something different.
Series 2: Nailed it. This is creative, pleasantly silly and a joy to watch. I come back to it quite often, even though there's only 5ish episodes. Some of the nonsense from Series 1, but far more structure and no annoying bits.
Series 3: Yeah, I think there's scope for more of the same, please!
Add this with pride to the complete Mighty Boosh collection that you hopefully already have and perhaps get yourself the complete Vic Reeves Big Night Out too. Happy times.
Firstly this review is biased because I love Noel Fielding's sense of humour. It is sort of cheeky-childish but adult humour. Favourite bit is where Noel tried to keep a straight face whilst Richard Ayoade (as a hammer head shark- of course!) berates Tofu. Fantasy man is also a long term favourite. How Noel manages to create so many characters and voices is amazing. When I am not laughing I am mesmerised by his creations.
Surprisingly, perhaps, a second series got commissioned. This time round there's more of a standard sitcom structure to the show (a cafe on the edge of an Hawaiian volcano) and it almost has coherent plots too. I think the show benefits from the restrictions of the format, but it's strange that there's only 5 episodes. Perhaps Channel 4 only ordered 12 in total, and they already had 7 episodes from season 1.
