Sit back and strap yourself in coz the Boosh is loose and it's comin' at ya like a flannel.]]>
Come along for an extended journey through time and space with the Mighty Boosh Special Edition DVD, a seven-disc compilation of the surreal UK comedy series' first three seasons, plus a bonus disc of live material and behind-the-scenes footage that's sure to please the show's growing legion of fans. Those who own the double-disc standalone editions of Boosh's first three seasons will find all of that material repeated here in six of the special edition's discs, including all episodes and supplemental features, so for those wishing to get up to speed in a hurry on the adventures of zookeepers Howard Moon and Vince Noir (creators Julian Barrett and Noel Fielding), or complete their collection in one fell swoop, here's the set to do it. It's the seventh disc that makes the special edition a must-have for first-timers and Boosh faithful alike; chief among its many extras is The Mighty Boosh: A Journey Through Time and Space, a lighthearted but comprehensive hour-long documentary about Barrett and Fielding's trajectory from humble standups to certifiable pop culture icons, with plenty of commentary by fellow UK comics like series producer Steve Coogan. Barrett and Fielding are also front and center for an interview at the Institute of Contemporary Arts and as hosts of a Mighty Boosh night on BBC Three from 2008, complete with their live linking segments. There's also a glimpse at a proto-Boosh in sketches from a 1997 unreleased TV pilot called (Un)Natural Acts, which also finds the pair in a zoo setting, albeit without the outlandish props. Deleted scenes, outtakes, and a look at the creation of the berserk Sammy the Crab puppet also await the faithful; the special features have been arranged in an appropriately psychedelic manner on the disc (none are labeled, and many simply lead to visual non sequiturs), with some only available as Easter eggs, so patience is most definitely required. --Paul Gaita

The whole box set is a delight, from the episodes, to the extras, (which are often hidden as Easter eggs on the main menus) to the post cards and stickers included with purchase. :) Absolutely worth the cost. This is not the sort of sitcom you watch through once and think, 'been there, done that:' the subtle & intelligent jokes mingle with the obvious & slapstick so there's always a new one-liner to notice. Not to mention the (slightly seisure-enducing) sets that are an entertainment all on their own.
If you threw (1960's US children's TV stalwarts) Sid and Marty Krofft's shows, the Monkees and the Goon Show in a Vitamix with a teeny pinch of MAD TV, you could possibly whip up something that resembles this flavor.
I was very surprised to find out that Noel Fielding played a lot of the characters. I've seen a few interviews with him and he seems like a soft spoken, chill kind of guy and I couldn't believe that he was The Hitcher or The Spirit of Jazz, he's a pretty incredible character actor. Noel and Julian also did all of the music for the show, which is AMAZING. I'm constantly singing Old Gregg's "Love Games" song, "Eels", and the Nanageddon song,(Na-na-ged-don..Na-na-ged-don..!).
I've heard this show compared to Monty Python, Tim and Eric's Awesome Show, and Flight of the Conchords, but I really think it is totally original and something that hasn't been done before like this. To anyone who hasn't seen The Mighty Boosh before, make sure you watch the unedited versions (I'd recommend picking up this DVD set. All complete episodes, tons of extras, artwork, stickers!), not the episodes aired on Adult Swim, they cut out a lot of the episodes and you won't see it in its full glory.
It is a little off beat and being American, I don't get all the references, but I've watched it several times already and can see this being something I could put on over and over again.
