Flight of the Conchords


So while Kim is in Utah visiting her family, I've made best friends with the DVR. Arrested Development, The Price is Right, Man vs. Wild, John Adams and the occasional Back the Future movie are all on my list. But I have to say, quite honestly my favorite show to catch up on is HBO's Flight of the Conchords. Now most programs on HBO aren't too family friendly, but this one is definitely a lot of fun and I highly recommend it if you are looking for a good laugh. What is this show about? Here's the description taken straight from Wikipedia, so it must be true:

"Flight of the Conchords is a Grammy Award-winning New Zealand comedy duo composed of Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement. Billing themselves as "Formerly New Zealand's fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo," the group uses a combination of witty observation, characterisation and acoustic folk guitars to work the audience. The duo's comedy and music became first the basis of a BBC radio series and then an American television series, which premiered in 2007, also called Flight of the Conchords."

Watch these next 4 videos (they're short) and I PROMISE you will not be disappointed. Some of the funniest stuff I have ever seen - and I've seen a lot. Enjoy!!

I just ordered a cool Flight of the Conchords shirt from www.PantherTees.com. They said not to tell anyone, but here is a 10% discount code, pts10 (it is case sensitive, so copy and paste it). Enjoy!

HILARIOUS! If this doesn't distract you from the fact that your wife is a thousand miles away I don't know what will.

found your blog from the BRHS BLog! I hope you don't mind me saying hi. But I just had to express my love for the flight of the concords as well! My husband and I watch it and laugh are faces off after the kids go to bed! So funny!

Ok, so I have heard about this show, but never seen it. Becky is addicted to it, and she is usually a reliable source for good entertainment. After seeing your endorsement of the show, I have ordered the 1st season on DVD. No pressure, but after we watch it, I will let you know if you owe us the $19.99 or not...
