The Goodies: The Tasty Box
Holy Smoke! Get it, get it, get it! These 16 remastered episodes are
prime examples of why The Goodies ruled and in many ways still do. Their
brand of humour has not been replicated by anyone in the same way since
despite many attempt to do so and chances are will never be.
Starring Bill Oddie, Tim Brooke-Taylor and Graeme Garden you just know
that you are in for a treat when this set comes jam packed with 6
episodes of The Goodies by the three stars of the show that really gives
some fabulous insight into the series, how they felt at the time and
gives you an idea of how itís all coming along today.
The contents of this disc are what have previously been released as The
Goodies Volume 1 and The Goodies Ė A Tasty Second Helping so if you
already own them then you might want to rethink the process for yourself
before laying out the cash.
Itís funny as a lot of humour ages very quickly nowadays with things
moving so fast in the techno age but the humour found on this disc is
still just as good now as then. I didnít find at any stage something
that I could no longer find hilarious due to age of jokes. Of course the
guys look very silly but hey, they just look silly!
For me, Ecky Thump says it all. This was a show that literally had me
screaming with laughter all the way through, whether it was the way they
said it, the actions or just everything, I donít know but I loved it!
For those who donít know what Ecky Thump is, itís a martial arts craze
that involves hitting people with black pudding which looks like a long
black sausage! It has to be seen to be believed.
For you Goodies freaks out there (like me), you will be delighted to see
that there are so many extras on this disc that your head will spin.
Everything from scripts files to audio commentaries, to the funniest out
takes I have seen in some time, this is a fans dream come true and I
have watched and rewatched them several times. Here are the jam packed
give this title a Extremely High Recommendation. You are guaranteed over
10 hours of almost constant laughter and if that is not enough, smash
your DVD player and get the hell out of our site! Everyone will love
this disc and if not, ďECKY THUMP!Ē
