I've been watching The Mighty Boosh on Adult Swim, and I must admit it's pretty funny. It needed to grow on me the same way The Flight Of The Conchords needed to, but after three episodes I think I'm hooked. The funny thing is I looked up the show and it's been around for ten years, in one form or another anyway. It started out as a comedy troupe doing stage shows, then a tv show for two years, then they toured again, then started up the tv series again. Mixed in there are albums, books, and apparently a feature length movie. At first the main characters seem to work at a zoo, and then later they had their own business.
I felt this weird comfortable feeling watching it as if I've seen it before, and not until a bunch of episodes in did I realize it has this science fictiony- grotesque- psychedelic- Sid and Marty Kroftt feel to it. Howard Moon is my favorite character, being the average guy that seems to always get shit on by the rest of the odd characters.
Is it too much for American television to make more original, engaging, shows instead of these terrible reality shows (I guess anything on Vh1) starring drunken whiny ugly dumb whores? Although, I guess you can't take all that stuff away otherwise "The Soup" would cease to exsist, and I love that show.
Anyway, hopefully more of The Mighty Boosh will make it to the States.
