That's right, five exclamation marks. This news is just that exciting.
The Mighty Boosh are Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt, a surreal, brilliant comedy team from the UK. A few years back I got hooked on their show by watching the first two seasons on Youtube. Each episode was so funny (and so densely packed with weird little details) that they had a lot of repeat value.
But then the BBC cracked down, and yanked every single episode off of Youtube. Then, when the third season debuted, they made it impossible for anybody outside of the UK to see it legally. People in England could watch new episodes on the show's website, but fans elsewhere were just locked out. The DVDs were region-specific, so you couldn't watch them on American players. The BBC was doing everything they could think of it make sure that nobody outside of England could see the show, ever.
But now all three seasons of The Mighty Boosh are available to us lowly commoners in the colonies! Hooray!!!!!! (Yes, we're up to six exclamation marks, now. This news just keeps getting more exciting.)
