Only the last four hours fall short of the real thing. These Australian episodes lack Neddy and also a clear narrative story upon which the Goonishness hangs. What you have is lots of unstructured silliness. It does show the genius of the authentic episodes. And included at the end are some radio documentaries and interviews; yet these are not why I bought this download however, and I have to admit to being a bit disappointed. However, you can't sneeze at eight hours of great Goon fun, so I won't be returning it. But a heads up, downloading one of the classic 2 hour Goon shows will give better value for money, even if shorter, the satisfaction will be greater. 90% proof.
