Flight of the Conchords

Well, Sundays seem so empty now, with Tony Soprano gone and all. But I was pleasantly surprised when Brenda & I sat down to watch the premiere of Flight of the Conchords. Not really knowing anything about these two kiwis or how they were gonna make their "funny folk" act into a TV show, we went in blind. But fifteen seconds into the intro I was hooked. Exactly four minutes in though, the protagonists broke into song at Dave's party and I was laughing so hard at the lyrics and the presentation that Brenda thought the neighbors were gonna call the cops.

And when you're on the street, depending on the street, I'll bet you are definitely in the top three... good lookin' girls on the street! (depending on the street)

The show revolves around these two guys from New Zealand who have a band and are trying to make it in the Big Apple, but it's essentially a vehicle for their hysterical songs.

You're so beautiful, you could be an air hostess in the sixties...

It's very interesting to see how you take a very funny musical stage act and roll it into a TV series. So far, 30 minutes into the experiment, they are succeeding wonderfully.

You're so beautiful you could probably be a PART... TIME... MODEL... (but you'll probably have to keep your regular job)

It's no Sopranos; but so far, the 'Conchords are killing.

P.S.
Here; see for yourself:
