  Way better than the TV show

| | See all noodlemantra's reviews (4)

I heard the audio episodes before I watched the TV series and even though I love the TV episodes, I'd definitely say that the radio shows are much, much better. I suppose because there is no visual stimulus, they've had to make these much funnier which is obviously great. Would definitely recommend!

  good but totally out of sync

I love the boosh series 1,2,3 and lover the radio cd but it is jumbled all over the place on these cd's which is confusing. Bob fossil (rich Fulcher i sgreat in the show). These 3 cd's are not put together in any sot of order so seem a bit annoying.

  This is damn mighty!

Haha! This CD is the greatest!
I thought the DVD's were great but when I got the CD and it was playing in my ear, I was laughing even harder!
It's amazing because it sounds like you're actually there with the headphones in! ^_^
The stories are really funny and rather different from the tv shows episodes which was good because I didn't want to hear the same which I'd already heard because I'd know what to expect....but on the contrary, I could quite listen to these more than once!

I am a big Boosh fan and I didn't know what to expect from the radio show, a lot of the Boosh TV stuff is very visual, but like Martito says below, it works and indeed sometimes better.
If you are new to the Boosh then this is a good introduction to the world of the Mighty Boosh.
If you are a fan of the Boosh but have never heard the radio show, then this is a MUST! You would not regret buying this.

They do use a lot of the ideas from the radio show in the 1st TV series, but there is enough difference to keep you interested, in fact you can play the "spot the unique material" or the "What's different in that scene"games.

Warning! Try not to listen to it it in public, as it WILL cause uncontrolled out bursts of laughter!! And this will lead others to think that you are a little peculiar!

Overall, this is a must buy for those new to the world of the Boosh and to the already converted!

this is the boosh at their absolute best. the show works (dare i say it!) better in your head than on screen. or even stage. the first tv series was based on this material and- although excellent- felt a little staid in comparison. this is as fresh as a daisy.

warning: be prepared for the funny looks from passers by as you walk down the street tittering uncontrollably to the boosh on your headphones!

  Absolute classic

| | See all TheDandelionClocks's reviews (4)

Their first series borrowed from these episodes in parts (or was it the other way round) however the majority of material will be new to television viwers. I can honestly say that I have listen to all episodes dozens of times in the car which is testament to the quality. Completely hilarious, The Boosh can get even more bizarre and ludicrous on the radio than on TV, for example the episode when Bob Fossil pilots an attack helicopter over the zoo with Vince wearing two eyepatches firing missiles at a naughty child. Its hard to put into words how funny and brilliant this is. I can't recommend it enough.

This is for my money the best thing boosh.! Genius characters and amazing adventures. Close your eyes and let Howard & Vince take you on that journey through time and space. Excellent stuff!...Pedro was a fisherman but he never actually fished...!
