Netflix Challenge Day 17 - The Mighty Boosh

Vince and Howard, employees of a zoo run by the maniacal Bob Fossil, enjoy surreal adventures with an ape named Bollo and other odd characters.

The Mighty Boosh follows the strange and bizarre adventures of Vince Noir and Howard Moon as they get themselves into weirder and weirder situations with their friends Bollo the ape and Naboo the Shaman.

Vince's main love apart from himself is fashion all be it a some what outlandish fashion sense going from Jacobean ruff's to drainpipe trousers made out of bamboo! Howard is a simple man with simple tastes, he loves Jazz and dressing like a supply teacher.
The story's are out there with Vince turning punk and eating one of Howard's rare Jazz records and infecting himself with a Jazz virus and then goes to Howard having to go toe to toe with a Kangaroo in a boxing match.

The show can be quite random at times but that's a good thing because just as you are settling in to a story then WHAM the moon comes in with to say something that doesn't have anything to do with the story. They sing little ditty's they call Crimping.

Soup Soup
Tasty Soup Soup
Spicy carrot and corriander
Chilli chowder
Crouton Crouton
Crunch friends in a liquid broth
I am gespatchio Oh!
I am a summer soup Mmmm!
Miso Miso
Fighting in the dojo
Miso Miso
Oriental Prince in the land of soup

The crimps have got quite a cult following  and were even copied by a cereal manufacturer.

The show started off as a radio show then spawned into 3 series that follow them as they go from working and living in a Zoo in series 1 to moving into a flat with Bollo and Naboo in series 2 then end up working in Naboo's shop in series 3. It also had 2 live tours.

To wrap it all up the show can be a bit random at times and it's not really for everyone because you either love it or hate it......I am one of the many who love it.

The Mighty Boosh is for fans of shows like The I.T Crowd.
