Kiwis are Irie
While the humor and song stylings of HBO's Flight of the Conchords range from hilarious to ho-hum in season one, overall it's hard to resist the deadpan charm of Bret and Jemaine. I admit, I'm developing quite a crush on the lambchop-sideburned Clement.
I've just caught up on the show on DVD and episodes like "Sally," "Drive By" and "Girlfriends" get more and more delightfully nuanced with each repeated viewing. It's clear everyone involved in this show is lavishing it with TLC and I thank HBO for that.
Above is a clip of my favorite song parody from season one. A lovely French 101 pop ditty with a 1960s groove. Genius.
