And so unsurprisingly, things continue to be utterly strange and deranged in "The Mighty Boosh: Season 2" even when our wacky protagonists have left their old jobs at the zoo. I can't help but miss some of the freakish side-characters of the previous season, but the visual bizarrities, freak-show plots and surrealist details keep things utterly amazing from start to finish.
Howard Moon (Julian Barratt) and Vince Noir (Noel Fielding) are living in a flat with Naboo the mystic and the talking ape Bollo, and are apparently trying to launch a music career. Howard does the music, Vince does the costumes.
In the first episode, a soul-killing trip to a mountain cabin is interrupted by the deranged hick Kodiak Jack (who immediately develops a huge crush on Vince). Too bad they're also in danger from a bunch of breeding Yeti, and Howard inadvertently ends up in their hands. Paws. Whatever. And during Vince and Howard's search for a new psychedelic musical sound before the deadline, Naboo tells them a strange story of Rudi and Spider ("Feel the power of my fusion lick!").
Then an age crisis sends Vince and Howard to Naboo's home planet to find the Fountain of Youth, but run afoul of the Hitcher and the Xooberon Tribe. An attempt to impress some goth girls ("Goth Juice, most powerful hairspray known to man... made from the tears of Robert Smith") causes disaster when Vince uses Naboo's "hardcore" black magic book to summon the evillest evil demon Nanatoo, who looks a lot like a little old lady and clones herself... meaning they're faced with Nanageddon!Read more ›
Howard Moon, Vince Noir, Naboo the shaman, and Bollo the ape are the only returning characters, but the actor who played zoo manager Bob Fossil in the 1st season plays a number of roles in season 2 as well. Here's a quick summary/rating for all 6 episodes:
"The Call of the Yeti" -5/5:
Howard decides that he, Vince, Naboo, and Bollo should take a weekend vacation at a cabin deep in the woods. But when they get there, they encouter a creepy old mountain-man named Kodiak Jack....who develops an affinity for Vince. Howard tells him he's a nature photographer and is looking for animals to photograph, so Jack makes a deal with him and gives him a map to a Yeti lair. Let the mayhem ensue.
"The Priest and the Beast" -3/5:
Howard and Vince are trying to find a new sound, and they go to Naboo for help. Naboo proceeds to tell them the story of Rudi and Spider, two psychadelic musicians who always went looking for "The New Sound". It shouldn't take you long to figure out that Rudi is basically a funky, black, door-in-his-afro guitar playing version of Howard, and Spider a sex-driven, Mexican-sounding Vince who got his name (Spider) for having 8 of a certain body part...
A personal favorite of mine. Howard and Vince try to impress a couple of Goth girls by showing them some magic.Read more ›
I strongly suggest you buy all three season (which is available as a set here on Amazon), but if you're only gonna buy one season, make it this one.

Overall stronger than Season 1, the show comes into its own a bit as it escapes the confines of the zoo setup and admits to itself that it's all about the music. Read morePublished 17 days ago by PGTIPS
