  • The Mighty Boosh | Shiny Shelf
    stepping stone to television It displays great affinity for the medium a scene such as the one where Howard rides a porpoise or where Vince s scarf gets caught in the wheels of a car just wouldn t work on TV Possibly in animation There also seems to be a lot of improvisation which is much easier to do when working with the lower overheads of radio Mark noted that the budgetary restraints of the TV show sometimes fell short of the duo s unruly imaginations and that doesn t happen here In the way that The Mighty Boosh s world morphs and twists as each episode s plot rambles onwards they are worthy of comparison with the BBC s all time great radio comedy The Goon Show Barrett and Fielding further add a joyful exploitation of the forty years worth of sci fi and fantasy clich s that have become embedded into our culture since the age of the Goons and some excellent use of music some of the songs are great in their own right I often catch myself singing Trapped in a Box by a Cockney Nutjob As noted the Boosh have indeed moved to TV now deservedly so and good luck to them a DVD of the first series is due out when the second airs in the autumn But these six radio episodes deserve to be treasured in their own right Click here to buy The Mighty Boosh from Amazon co uk Line Break By Eddie Robson Share The Mighty Boosh Tags BBC BBC Three Comedy Fifth Julian Barrett Mighty Boosh Noel Fielding Radio Rich Fulcher Richard Ayoade Comments are closed RECENT POPULAR TAGS Saga Django Unchained Disney and Lucasfilm Dracula vs Robin Hood vs Jekyll and Hyde 1 2 Star Trek Titan Fallen Gods Ted The Dark Knight Rises UK comics round up Nelson The Scarifyers Quick Doctor Who poll Doctor Who The post Big Bang survival kit Print s Not Dead World of Fancraft The Shiny Shelf Alternative Xmas Gift Guide Fringe 2 16 Peter Ashes to Ashes Advent Calendar Alan Moore Angel Batman BBC BBC One BBC Three BBC Two BFI Billie Piper Books Brian Michael Bendis Buffy Channel 4 Chris Carter Christopher Eccleston Comedy Comics David Tennant DC Doctor Who Documentary DVD Enterprise Fifth Geoff Johns George Lucas Grant Morrison Horror ITV JJ Abrams Joss Whedon London Film Festival Marvel Movies Russell T Davies Spider Man Star Trek Star Wars Superman The X Files TV Vampires X Men Zombies Comics Read Younger Looking Flesh our first webcomic Tags Advent Calendar Alan Moore Angel Batman BBC BBC One BBC Three BBC Two BFI Billie Piper Books Brian Michael Bendis Buffy Channel 4 Chris Carter Christopher Eccleston Comedy Comics David Tennant DC Doctor Who Documentary DVD Enterprise Fifth Geoff Johns George Lucas Grant Morrison Horror ITV JJ Abrams Joss Whedon London Film Festival Marvel Movies Russell T Davies Spider Man Star Trek Star Wars Superman The X Files TV Vampires X Men Zombies

  • Nathan Barley | Shiny Shelf
    of comedy duo The Mighty Boosh coincidentally I ve had the Boosh s old radio series on constant rotation for the past two weeks and have started to suspect that Barratt is an excellent comic actor Nathan Barley proves it as he plays Ashcroft with an expression of dull pain and a sense that he suspects every minute of the day that his soul is rotting away When Ashcroft realises that he s screwing up the job interview which could be his ticket out of the smug juvenile offices of Sugar Ape magazine his broken delivery of I don t want to go back because they re idiots and they ride around on little plastic tractors so please has remarkable pathos so much so that one barely considers pointing out that he s got a nice cushy job and there are worse hardships than putting up with some braying morons for a few hours each day This is the trick which Nathan Barley must repeatedly pull off in order to retain the viewer s sympathy Morris oppressive over lit visual style therefore suits it very well the world in which this all takes place seems completely isolated turning it into a strange little inescapable hell Some have suggested that Nathan Barley is likely to mean little to anybody who has never encountered the world it portrays If true the show again falls victim to accusations that it is like its own characters self important wrongly assuming that anybody else gives a toss about what their cliquey little circle is interested in Personally I think the show works because Ashcroft provides a sympathetic access point However given that I once did some freelancing in an office which had table football I am possibly not the best judge of this Line Break By Eddie Robson Share Nathan Barley Tags Channel 4 Chris Morris Comedy Mighty Boosh Richard Ayoade TV Comments are closed RECENT POPULAR TAGS Saga Django Unchained Disney and Lucasfilm Dracula vs Robin Hood vs Jekyll and Hyde 1 2 Star Trek Titan Fallen Gods Ted The Dark Knight Rises UK comics round up Nelson The Scarifyers Quick Doctor Who poll Doctor Who The post Big Bang survival kit Print s Not Dead World of Fancraft The Shiny Shelf Alternative Xmas Gift Guide Fringe 2 16 Peter Ashes to Ashes Advent Calendar Alan Moore Angel Batman BBC BBC One BBC Three BBC Two BFI Billie Piper Books Brian Michael Bendis Buffy Channel 4 Chris Carter Christopher Eccleston Comedy Comics David Tennant DC Doctor Who Documentary DVD Enterprise Fifth Geoff Johns George Lucas Grant Morrison Horror ITV JJ Abrams Joss Whedon London Film Festival Marvel Movies Russell T Davies Spider Man Star Trek Star Wars Superman The X Files TV Vampires X Men Zombies Comics Read Younger Looking Flesh our first webcomic Tags Advent Calendar Alan Moore Angel Batman BBC BBC One BBC Three BBC Two BFI Billie Piper Books Brian Michael Bendis Buffy Channel 4 Chris Carter Christopher Eccleston Comedy Comics

  • LONDON FILM FESTIVAL: Sideways | Shiny Shelf
    slapstick while never losing sympathy for Miles Raymond his world weary loser alter ego Director Alexander Payne s Election received a lot of plaudits though came across as a little too vicious and nihilistic for me Sideways is a more sweet natured film altogether and while it has its awkward moments is not a comedy based around humiliation It can feel rather lightweight in places but then a deft touch in cinematic presentation is often preferable to heavy handed ramming home of a simple message as anyone who has seen an Oliver Stone movie can testify Indeed this is the sort of charming funny film that doesn t deserve to be linked with the overblown pomp of your average Oscar winner Line Break By Stephen Lavington Share LONDON FILM FESTIVAL Sideways Tags Alexander Payne BFI Comedy London Film Festival Movies Paul Giamatti Thomas Haden Church Comments are closed RECENT POPULAR TAGS Saga Django Unchained Disney and Lucasfilm Dracula vs Robin Hood vs Jekyll and Hyde 1 2 Star Trek Titan Fallen Gods Ted The Dark Knight Rises UK comics round up Nelson The Scarifyers Quick Doctor Who poll Doctor Who The post Big Bang survival kit Print s Not Dead World of Fancraft The Shiny Shelf Alternative Xmas Gift Guide Fringe 2 16 Peter Ashes to Ashes Advent Calendar Alan Moore Angel Batman BBC BBC One BBC Three BBC Two BFI Billie Piper Books Brian Michael Bendis Buffy Channel 4 Chris Carter Christopher Eccleston Comedy Comics David Tennant DC Doctor Who Documentary DVD Enterprise Fifth Geoff Johns George Lucas Grant Morrison Horror ITV JJ Abrams Joss Whedon London Film Festival Marvel Movies Russell T Davies Spider Man Star Trek Star Wars Superman The X Files TV Vampires X Men Zombies Comics Read Younger Looking Flesh our first webcomic Tags Advent

  • The Smoking Room | Shiny Shelf
    more around that notion of interactions between people who have nothing in common except their workplace and nicotine dependency It eschews the mock docu soap style of The Office and arguably bears more resemblance to The Royle Family with its single location and real time unfolding of events I particularly like the fact that we are never told where the office is or what the company even does shop talk is banned from the smoking room It also affords an opportunity for a genuinely mixed cast something which few sitcoms provide Robert Webb blatantly playing the writer s identification figure is excellent distinctly different from his performance in Channel 4 s Peep Show and in support there s Siobahn Redmond a return to comedy that will be welcomed by fans of The High Life and fanfare please LESLIE SCHOFIELD an under employed TV great It s not the most instantly appealing of sitcoms you won t be wandering around quoting your favourite lines to people at work which is probably just as well as this might lead to your sense of irony collapsing in on itself It s slow and it aims to let the characters develop rather than instantly shoving them in your face This is however not necessarily a bad thing It would be nice if the BBC would give it another run to settle in it can t cost much to make surely Line Break By Eddie Robson Share The Smoking Room Tags BBC BBC Three BBC Two Comedy Robert Webb TV Comments are closed RECENT POPULAR TAGS Saga Django Unchained Disney and Lucasfilm Dracula vs Robin Hood vs Jekyll and Hyde 1 2 Star Trek Titan Fallen Gods Ted The Dark Knight Rises UK comics round up Nelson The Scarifyers Quick Doctor Who poll Doctor Who The post Big Bang survival kit Print s Not Dead World of Fancraft The Shiny Shelf Alternative Xmas Gift Guide Fringe 2 16 Peter Ashes to Ashes Advent Calendar Alan Moore Angel Batman BBC BBC One BBC Three BBC Two BFI Billie Piper Books Brian Michael Bendis Buffy Channel 4 Chris Carter Christopher Eccleston Comedy Comics David Tennant DC Doctor Who Documentary DVD Enterprise Fifth Geoff Johns George Lucas Grant Morrison Horror ITV JJ Abrams Joss Whedon London Film Festival Marvel Movies Russell T Davies Spider Man Star Trek Star Wars Superman The X Files TV Vampires X Men Zombies Comics Read Younger Looking Flesh our first webcomic Tags Advent Calendar Alan Moore Angel Batman BBC BBC One BBC Three BBC Two BFI Billie Piper Books Brian Michael Bendis Buffy Channel 4 Chris Carter Christopher Eccleston Comedy Comics David Tennant DC Doctor Who Documentary DVD Enterprise Fifth Geoff Johns George Lucas Grant Morrison Horror ITV JJ Abrams Joss Whedon London Film Festival Marvel Movies Russell T Davies Spider Man Star Trek Star Wars Superman The X Files TV Vampires X Men Zombies Archives January 2013 October 2012 August 2012 July 2012 June 2012 May 2012 April 2012 March 2012 February
