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.

excellent musicians, funny show with potential, worth checking out.
24 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

These guys really impressed me. They are excellent song writers, styling themselves after David Bowie, REM, and various genres they explored, and succeed in writing a legitimate, structured songs. They have a knack for creating a catchy song, and make it silly without compensating their shtick, or going overboard. They really take themselves seriously as musicians. And thats only 1/3 of reasons to check this show out.

2/3 of reasons to see this is that the humor is very subtle, and sharp. Not particularly "American" humor, fans of British humor will appreciate the offbeat energy and situations. Rhys Darby is also very funny as the clueless, and loyal manager and friends of the duo. The premise of the show is simple: an up-and-coming folk duo work to develop a fan base in the U.S., starting with New-York. The juxtaposition between the duo's New Zealand calm, playful attitudes and their American acquaintances' brazen "American" demeanors.

3/3 of the reasons is the lesser of the bunch, but adds a quaint dimension which I appreciate, is the show's potential. Some may notice that this show has quite a lot going for it, and could be something special if it realizes its potential for an interesting take on the struggle of a band's success.
