|accio_arse||03:23 am - OMG. First episode AND THERE ARE HOWARD PANTS|
From The Coconut Lodge Mighty Boosh fan forum:
I have just finished watching the first episode and I don't think you'll be disappointed. But enough about my own performance of the Hoxton Elite, the Boosh themselves aren't bad either.
There are appearances from the Hitcher, Rich as Eleanor (in a variety of outfits looking a bit like Jackie O!), Tony Harrison, and the shamen crew on a stag weekend (inc Richard Ayoade), Willy Borrell, Robots In Disguise... and Julian in yet more pants... and the moon makes his usual appearances.
It's quite a dark episode both in both mood and colour contrast...
There's a good Student Loans reference which I am sure a lot of us can relate to!
Oh and did I mention I am in it for all of 10 seconds!?
Choice quote: "you can mess me up fun time"
And there is of course a new "Eels" song.
ITs beautifully written, directed and produced and that's not just me being biased - honest.
NB: PANTS PANTS PANTS! PANTS PANTS PANTS! PANTS PANTS PANTS!
Julian Barratt in tiny little pants with his gorgeous long legs on show! Yum! (BTW Click here for a huge picspam post dedicated solely to Julian's pink pants)
Is this the episode with Rich in that brown velvet corset? Is it him I get to mess him up fun time? New song hooray! Richard Ayoade yay!
Oh, I want to see this so bad. I'm also a bit relieved that Old Gregg isn't in the first episode, as it gives me more time before my fanfic plot is buggered.
The transmission date is: Thur 15 March, 10.30 pm, BBC3. There'll be online previews the week before.
Official episode description:
The new series of The Mighty Boosh sees Vince Noir and Howard Moon working in Naboo's second-hand shop in Dalston, London. Howard, unsuccessfully trying to sell his esoteric jazz records, mainly moons away the hours in a delusion of grandeur while Vince lays around in a hammock, playing loud music, trying on wigs and finding Howard ludicrous. Needless to say, they don't get much work done. This doesn't bother Naboo too much – firstly, as the shop is really only a cover for his shady interplanetary Shaman business and, secondly, he's usually quite chilled out from sampling his own magical herbs and remedies.
Naboo and Bollo are off on the Head Shaman's stag do, leaving Howard and Vince in charge of Nabootique. The pair challenge one another to a sales contest, each trying to sell their latest fads, Elbow Patches and The Indie Celebrity Radar. Things are going pretty well until an unexpected visit from the evil Cockney Hitcher. After summoning Elsie Queen of Eels, the Hitcher demands protection money from the boys, but it's money the boys just don't have...
Some previous pants Julian Barratt has graced us with:
So short they're nearly as good as pants. :)
I'm happy about the pants. :)
