What's Hot Today

Murray takes it to the next level, big MEH

This ep IMO was sub par, funny moments but over all the songs were lame the store line was iffy at best. but I guess you cant hit a home run every time.

Fall in Love With Flight of the Conchords Again (or At Last)

Flight of the Conchords isn't necessarily one of those shows I watch for the plot - it's mostly just for the laughs and the goofy songs - but just in case you're confused when your friends prattle on about Bret and Jemaine, HBO can help you out. Yup, it's another of those "... in four minutes" videos, this one introducing you to Murray the band manager, superfan Mel, and Sally (you know, the "prettiest girl in the whole wide room"). Awesomely, that's not the only Conchords video treat I have today. One of my favorite minor Conchords characters, Dave, runs a comical pawn shop that the show checks in on from time to time, and now we're getting a look at the ads Dave made for his shop. I imagine these things running on public-access TV late at night. And, well, let's just say Bret and Jemaine aren't the only people on the show capable of writing catchy jingles.

Review - Flight of the Conchords: New Cup

For me, the best thing about Flight of the Conchords is the deadpan minimalist humor that stands in sharp contrast to the elaborate song sequences. (It should be noted that my favorite FotC song is "I Like to Rock the Party.") It's the comedy that's barely there that makes this show funny. Murray checking his notes to confirm that Bret should have a guitar. Bret offering nut loaf to potential "Janes." The "dad guitar." That's the good stuff. I usually find myself heading to the kitchen when the songs come on -- but I usually glance back at the TV to see if Jemaine is making a funny face – and I rush back to the couch once the last note drops.

Singing (and a Few Other Things) for Their Supper

Manufacturing serendipity is a tricky business, as the makers of any number of whimsical, failed television series can tell you. Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie managed it better than most in the first 12-episode season of Flight of the Conchords on HBO last year. Season 2 began on Sunday (the first episode is already available at hbo.com), and the off-kilter charm is still there, though some strain is beginning to show. This fish-out-of-water sitcom about a pair of guileless New Zealand musicians bumbling through life in New York has a formula and sticks to it: stretches of surrealist, deadpan comedy, so minimal as to be barely there, alternate with comparatively elaborate, Michel Gondry-style fantastical musical numbers. The Seinfeld -like plots are spun from air: Bret buys a mug for $2.79 and plunges the duo into such dire economic straits that Jemaine takes up prostitution, complete with a Midnight Cowboy hotel room parody. ( I have a few rules. One, no laughing, especially during, O.K.? Put's me off. ) During a performance in a library, Bret ad-libs insults to some prominent rappers, then forms his own gang - which includes the middle-aged Asian proprietors of the Internet cafe downstairs - in case Snoop Dogg or Missy Elliott comes looking for him. The jokes that hang from these slender frames are still sneaky-funny, though perhaps a slightly higher percentage fall flat. When an agent tells the duo his e-mail address, Bret asks, Underscore is your middle name? When they finish their first real paying job and are asked for their green cards, this exchange ensues: Jemaine: Green cards? Executive: You do have a green card, right? Jemaine: Is it just a bit of card? Bret: It's just a greenish card? Well, you have to be there. And as always, the New Zealand accents make everything funnier. The real issue this season will be the quality of the songs. The first season used up all of the pair's existing material, and the new songs in the first three shows are uneven. A West Side Story parody in the gang episode is simply tedious. The pair still manage at least one inspired number per episode, though. The highlight of the season premiere is the non sequitur song that ends it, explaining why rain is suddenly falling: There are angels doing it in the clouds ... Mr. Clement and Mr. McKenzie pull off a neat trick in their show: they play a pair of clueless losers set loose in New York while simultaneously communicating the fact that in real life they're hipster studs. You have to wonder whether anyone outside of downtown Manhattan; Williamsburg, Brooklyn; and certain neighborhoods of Los Angeles cares, but since this is HBO, that's the audience that will keep Flight of the Conchords on the air.

Pure Genius

This show is a real tribute to Kiwi humour!!! It's such an honor to have such talented guys and an international success come from little old New Zealand!! They deserve every bit of the Grammy they won!!! YOU MUST WATCH THIS SHOW...ITS TRUELY GENIUS!!! So so sad that we have to wait another year for the next season :(

Amasing, Awesome could be British

I first saw Flights of Conchords when an Australian friend brought over the dvd of season one. She explained how the show had a cult following and that she had seen the duo in Melbourne a few years ago. At first I was a bit skeptic because nobody does that cringe worthy fly on the wall documentary spoof like the British. But the show was really funny and for some who hates musicals like myself enjoyed the musical ensembles. The musical lyrics and entertaining plots will keep this show going for a while. Can't wait for season 2


Why hasn't anybody posted yet? This show is awesome! I'm so excited for the CD. It'd gonna be hilarious
