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!!
