Flight Of The Conchords

A new HBO comedy series is starting across the pond this Sunday, June 17th. It is called Flight Of The Conchords, starring New Zealand digi-folk-comedy duo Flight Of The Conchords. Apt title then. The programme charts the efforts of Jermaine Clement and Bret McKenzie (the band) as they attempt to break America from their new home, New York City. Unfortunately they have so far only secured one fan (a married obsessive), one friend (the local pawn shop owner), and a dim manager who also/mostly works at the New Zealand Consulate.
A musical sitcom whose quirky aesthetics are heavily indebted to the likes of Peep Show and Curb Your Enthusiasm... This may be one to watch. The first episode is damn funny and can be seen in full at:
