Trivia

Before Flight of the Conchords was made into a HBO series, it was a mostly improvised radio series on BBC Radio 2 which is similar to the TV series, where Bret and Jemaine were band members who were trying to make it big in London. Rhys Darby (who plays Murray in the TV series) was their manager, and Jimmy Carr played their fan called Kipper. Their radio series was popular, and in 2006 they were awarded the Bronze Sony Radio Academy Award for comedy. See more »

Quotes

New Zealand Prime Minister Brian: Bret, what can you bring?
Bret: I can make half a dozen croutons.
New Zealand Prime Minister Brian: Half a dozen? Do you think you could go higher than half a dozen?
Bret: 900?
Murray: They'd be very small. Almost like crumbs.
New Zealand Prime Minister Brian: 900? No, I think that's too many. Try and split the difference. Try and come down from 900 but up from six or seven.
Bret: I could probably make 15 croutons, if you like.
New Zealand Prime Minister Brian: Excellent. Excellent idea. You're showing promise, young man.

Good one Dave. Ohhh, you're a legend Dave.

I guess the general rule is that in any 1st season of a comedy there are going to be highs and lows. However this could be the exception to the rule. It was brilliant from start to finish. Anyone lucky enough to listen to the Conchords radio series in the UK or to have seen their HBO one night stand slot will not be disappointed. The humor is subtle and at times could be likened to the UK version of the office with Rhys Darby in the David Brent role (band manager Murray). Bret and Jermain satisfy audiences with their witty repertoire of songs and inane banter, all while the world around them seems to make less and less sense. Superb. A must see.
