I Almost Missed The Flight
I was asleep at the switch. How else can I explain the fact I'm only discovering the Flight of the Conchords now. This HBO series featuring New Zealand's Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement first hit TMN over a month ago but I only watched the pilot on Friday. Five episodes later, I'm in love.
It's bloody brilliant. Frighteningly witty and chock full of exceptionally hilarious songs covering a wide variety of genres. It's dryer than a show like Curb Your Enthusiasm, and you have to get used to the accents, but it's one of those shows you just don't want to end. At a half hour, if feels way too short and you're left wanting a whole lot more.
Here's a song from the pilot. If you get TMN, or have a friend who gets TMN, there are seven episodes sitting at channel 308 waiting to be watched or recorded or whatever. Don't miss this series.
The songs really need to be viewed as part of the episode to be fully appreciated, but that's not going to stop me from sharing one more. This one appeared in the 4th episode, "Yoko".
And, because I can't help myself, this song killed me. It's from the 3rd episode and features Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros.
That's all... for now. Watch the damn show. There's nothing remotely as funny on tv right now, trust me.
