  • The Greatest Comedy program since Monty Python

    1.1
    This has got to be the greatest progam since Monty Python - ignore what millions say and that this is a waste of the UK licence Tax. This is comedy gold. This is in no way derivative of any show and Noel Fielding and Nathan Barley are the new comedy gods - I can not wait for each new episode/character. Not since Black Adder in the 80s and Fawlty Towers in the 70s have we seen such razor tight scripts and character development. Whoever does not find this the most original and greatest comedy program of all time has obviously had a sense of humour bypass. Forget Partridge,MBB,Black Books,Office, Extras and the Fast show - this is the comedy show to end all comedy shows. All previous british comedies pale into insignificance when compared to the Might that is Bush - Noel Fielding is not a one trick pony or a poor womans Russel Brand - check him out in the IT Crowd - another British Comedy Gem - especially the Peter File Joke - nice to see Chris Morris believes in recycling waste material.moreless

    (I love my little vincey)

    thank god for nicky clark

    Unfortunately hes not the only horney bastard in the hills.

    the local yeti tribe complete with tribal face masks and withcraft are also seeking human breeding partners.

    Yeti magic proves powerful over the humans and the only thing that can save them from the yeti queen is an overloaded suit case of doom

    real hippy sh*t

    love the mountain man

    and his fate

    a little to the leftmoreless
  • Howard decides that its time for a break

    9.5
    This episode was good for the first in the new series but I was confused about what had happened to the zoo and the whole change in plot now Bollo speaks english for every one to hear in stead of just Vince being able to speak to him because of his gift to speak to animals? anyway on a lighter note I think that this episode is funny thanks to some raunchy cabin antics from Kodiak Jack (Rich Fulcher (Bob Fossil(in one of his new various character roles))) who is so certain that Vince is a woman that he is willing to consumate the evidence ( most of Rich\'s new various charecters are attracted to Vince).moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Goof: The moon describes Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin and "the third one" walking on his face. It is said in the nanagedon episode that the moon is retarded, but I'm pretty sure the third astronaut stayed in the Command Module and orbited the moon waiting to reconnect with the Eagle lander. His name was Michael Collins.

    • Goof: When the yeti queen bursts into the cabin we see the four main characters (Vince, Howard, Naboo, and Bollo) pretending to be wall mounted hunting trophies. As the other characters are perfectly still we see Howard blink. This is before Bollo sneezes and gives the game away.

    • The music playing in the background when Vince is getting changed is from the Electro episode in the first series.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Vince: Ahhh, I've got bunches!

    • Bollo: I've got a bad feeling about this...

    • Codiac Jack: Run! It's the queen, and she's as horny as hell!

    • The Moon: Here's a poem from the Moon. Neil Armstrong is a-walkin' on my face. Buzz Aldrin is a-walkin' on my face. The third one, spaceman, is a-walkin' on my face, and they all lookin' at what the Moon's got to offer.

    • Howard: Alright, what about this jacobian ruff?
      Vince: Listen, I've got a strong feeling the Tudour looks gonna come back in while we're away. I don't want to get left behind.
      Howard: You'll be in the wilderness, who's gonna know?
      Vince: What if someone's photographing animals and I'm in the back of the shot? The Internet's a powerful tool these days.

    • Howard: Do you really need this tie?
      Vince: Yeah! The tie's a multi-purpose accessory. You know, "Belt", "Schoolboy", "Rambo".

  • NOTES (3)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • The moon character is based on the moons surface.
      If you look up at the actual moon, you can see in the craters the shape of the face in The Mighty Boosh turned slightly on it's side.
