HBO's Flight of the Conchords
« on: Jun 21, 2007 at 12:29 PM »
If you loved Tenacious D and Spinal Tap, you might dig HBO's new show Flight of the Conchords. It's a comedy about "a pair of bumblers from New Zealand struggling to break into the Manhattan music scene." The show includes musical sequences or the band's music videos. The songs remind me of Weird Al Yankovic's parodies. Here's the funniest clip from the premiere episode:

I'm Not Crying

I have this queued up, all six episodes so far. (Tama ba?)  :)

Perfect for back-to-back marathoning with Beck Mongolian Chop Squad.

Their Texas Oddysey documentary is also available as torrents. Looks interesting.

I haven't watched all of the episodes after the first one because I'm still having fun listening to the songs on the premiere episode. All of the songs are so freaking hilarious especially "I'm Not Crying".

I got their Distant Future EP from iTunes, and it was hilarious! They're like a wittier version of Tenacious D. Gotta grab those HBO episodes and do a mini-marathon!
The war is over...  Now bring on the classics on HD!
