Please refer to the first and second season for a vague idea on what the show is about.

Vince (Noel Fielding) and Howard (Julian Barratt) work in a secondhand shop known as the Nabootique with their boss Naboo (Michael Fielding), a shaman, and Bollo (Dave Brown), a gorilla.

They spend their days bored, yet dreaming of better things. Whenever they can, they perform at local club, the Velvet Onion. In the meantime, they manage to find themselves in some sticky situations involving jazz, a gangster, imposters, a crack fox, social situations and stage fright.

It's nice that this season provides a steadier and more regular backdrop than the season before. The Nabootique is a good setting for action because it is intriguing and houses odd items, but is also grounded. Unlike the apartment, this is a good place to check in before occasionally going off to a gig at the Velvet Onion. The action remains on Earth more often than not, just checking in with other dimensions.

As always, quick-witted verbal humor and silly visual gags rule the day. The tone remains reliably silly throughout. If you were happy before, expect that to continue.

It seems as though this season, the core cast plays even more characters than ever before. Naboo and Bollo also have a bit more to do in many episodes which helps to capitalize on their comedic potential. There also seem to be a few extra people helping. Keep an eye out for 'The IT Crowd's' Richard Ayoade.

Special features include: Nothing.

In many ways, 'The Mighty Boosh: Season Three' is a slight improvement upon what came before it. For what it was, the series was consistently funny throughout. Depending on your taste, you might prefer something about the slight variations each season provided.
