    Caught this the other night,

    what did everyone else think?

    It felt like the new series of Mighty Boosh to me (minus Julian Barratt obviously), and was pleasantly surpised!

    I always wondered who out of Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt broght the more leftfield characters to the mix, but this series obviously shows! Im guessing Julian Barratt brought the storyline and structure to Boosh - as Luxury comedy seemed to be missing any sort of structure.

    Liked some of the characters and costumes, having felt a bit let down with the last series of Boosh, this was a pleasent experience.

    I was worried that i had grown up a bit to much to enjoy the ecentricity of Boosh humour, but obviously not! :D

    looking forward to the next episode.

    I watched it on 4oD and enjoyed it, liked all the sketches, pele and the ball, the cop, and the lion were interesting.

    Agree re the Lion , one of my favorite characters from the episode, did make me want to watch Boosh again when they ran the Zoo - Series 1?

    The animation and art direction was good to

    Has anyone watched this and got any views on whether its worth watching or not? I was a big fan of the Boosh, but im a little bit skeptical that this may be trying a little bit too hard. Also ive recently moved to Germany so does anybody know a way to watch this whilst over here? 4od doesnt work :(

    Did Fielding and Barratt fall out or did they just run out of ideas for Boosh?

    The first episode was okay... but only okay - maybe it just needs a bit of time to settle down and maybe define some characters, situations, etc.? I think Boosh took some time to find a direction and possibly this is where Barratt really helped out.

    I just found the first episode to be just "whacky for the sake of being whacky" rather than actually being funny or interesting or whatever which is a bit of a disappointment. Fingers crossed it will improve.

    I was a massive fan of the boosh, but i was skeptical when i saw the adverts for this, looks like Noel might be trying just a little too hard, I always preferred Julian if im honest ;) but saying this.....I havent actually watched it yet as ive moved to Germany and i cant watch it 4oD, does anybody have any idea on how i could watch it?

    I can't decide whether it's funny or the equivilent of running around a broom whilst eating too many sherbert based sweets.

    If you catch my drift

    How does this compare with This Is Jinsy? I liked the first few Jinsy episodes, but then it got a bit much. I can see Luxury Comedy being much worse than that. Mighty Boosh had something about it and even the weirdest episodes had some kind of theme / tale to follow. I just don't fancy Luxury Comedy at all.

    I have to say I love this series so far. Totally surreal and strange and matches my humour perfectly " am I nothing ? " In a world full of the same old stuff its nice to see something different ! Its like comedy only more luxury ! :thumbsup:

    I don't think I'll be watching series 2, I managed 10 minutes of the first episode of series one and switched it off. Boosh was brilliant, this is self-indulgent drivel, Im amazed it got a second series.

    He's nothing without Julian Barrett
