Flight of the Conchords

This show was so over the top, but so funny.

This witty (some might say witless) New Zealand-based twosome generated by Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement describe themselves to being New Zealand‘s 4th most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo, but they are so much more and less.

One or both or three or none of the actors may have also appeared in: Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Men In Black, Dinner for Schmucks, The Muppets, Star Trek After Darkness, Man of Steal, Ironic Man 3, Diagnosis: Death, etc.

The allegedly impromptu musical numbers are awesome, Frodo Don’t You Wear That Ring, I Told You I Was Freaky, A Kiss Is Not A Contract, and The Humans are Dead are so painfully curious and catchy.

Kristen Schaal (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart) was scary and hilarious as their Number One Fan.

Rhys Darby (remember him as Jim Carrey’s quirky boss in Yes Man?), was outstanding as their manager.

Some of my fav TV scenes of all time took place in Murray‘s (Rhys Darby) office during band meetings.

This show is a rare treasure that the world wasn’t quite ready for just yet, but I will keep it in my brain.
