A spicy carrot and coriander!
11 February 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Hilarious episode chock full of brilliant dialogue and imagery; The sandpaper guy was perhaps one of my favourite 'villains' seen on the show yet, allowing Noel to play off his brilliant use of the gloves to great effect, creating one of the best laughs in the episode. During the middle section however, there is a distinct lack of Moon, which hurts the show's pacing and balance for me, showing that the two characters are just as important as each other; which is why the random exchanges between the two usually end up in my favourite scenes.

The plot of the show is a little weak, with Howard looking for the fountain of youth because he's scared of looking old. To be honest I found it a little out of character, and couldn't understand why they didn't have Vince take up this motivation rather than Howard. The 'villains' too are a little less successful than usual, and not quite as interesting (aside from the sandpaper guy and the hitcher, of course) but are nevertheless key to some good scenes here and there. The musical numbers are far and few between in this one, but what is there is brilliant as usual, sticking to the crazy Boosh formula whilst remaining complete fresh and original.

Overall a great episode, with some hilarious moments, but a little unbalanced all the same.
