Goodbye, Zooniverse. Hello life of yetis, deranged sea hermaphrodites and musical glamour!

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!

The mighty boosh was fantastic, but they really didn't hit their stride until the second season. It's trippy, irreverent, and sometimes outright grotesque fun! It's really hard to explain concisely. If you're reading this review, then the best thing for you to do is try it out. Odds are, if you're not into this sort of thing, you wouldn't be reading this review in the first place!

Fan of the Boosh!! Wish I had discovered it when it was still on TV. Love the BOOSH!!! Many fans cannot put this show in understandable context, neither can I. It is just a wonderful, surreal experience.

I've become a little hooked on this show. With American sitcoms getting duller every season, something as refreshing and off the wall as The Mighty Boosh is more than welcome. Though it's not rip-roaring hilarious, the humor simply revolves around the bizarre, but the characters are all inexplicably likeable and there's a fun song in every episode. Season 2's Nanageddon, though, is one of the best Boosh episodes yet.

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. As ever, the show is surreal and silly but also well-observed, consistently producing ridiculous but archetypal characters. Oh, and stupid, catchy songs (you will sing to yourself about loving the Chosen One). Caveats for Americans/recommendation for Anglophiles: esoterically British, low budget, campy. Often compared to Python but probably more Young Ones.

I highly recommend Boosh series 2 if you like your offbeat, surrealistic, whimsical, rock'n'roll sitcoms to be creamy and beige.

The second season of "The Mighty Boosh" is probably even wackier than the first. There are changes this time around (Howard and Vince are no longer working at a zoo, and instead are musicians), but one thing remains the same in terms of what to expect: Expect the unexpected. No matter how familiar you are with the Boosh, nothing can prepare you for the flood of random hilarity that takes place in each episode.

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...

"Nanageddon" -5/5:
A personal favorite of mine. Howard and Vince try to impress a couple of Goth girls by showing them some magic.
