  • I thought this was one of the best episodes.

    This episode is very underrated, it had a good plot and good characters (including Death which in my opinion is the 2nd best character after Old Gregg). Bollo the ape is sick when the lady who sponsors him is coming, worried that she won't donate any more money Howard has to dress as Bollo and appear in the cage. But Death mistakes Howard for the dying ape and takes him to monkey hell. It is extremley origonal with lots of good jokes (including Howard's funeral). I think it is one of the best episodes along with Old Gregg and The Nightmare Of Milky Joe.moreless
  • Imaginative and hilarious.

    Bollo, the third episode of the first series of the mighty Mighty Boosh, contains all the elements that make this series one of my favourites: Dialogue that you have to rewind and memorize to quote to your mates; a range of one off characters so good that they could have their own shows; a cracking production design that gives Boosh a visual style unlike anything else on TV. As I stated in my review of the first episode, this show does take some getting used to so don't judge it on just one episode. Once you're sucking into the comedy styling of messrs Fielding and Barratt, you'll never go back.moreless
