Quotes

Jemaine: You booked us a gig as a Simon and Garfunkel tribute act?
Murray Hewitt: [sighs] You're onto it.
Jemaine: You're trying to disguise it?
Murray Hewitt: I tried to disguise it as a gift. Okay? I'll admit it.
Bret: Murray, we don't sing other people's songs.
Murray Hewitt: Oh, I know, Bret. But here's the thing. I listened to some of their songs, and they're actually better than your songs.

Official name of this episode...
2 March 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Although at the time of writing this, this episode had only been named as Episode 7, for those of you who would like to know, I have just checked on HBO's official site, and the official name for this episode is 'Prime Minister'. (So if anybody has access to amending this on here, then please feel free!) I have also just watched this, and although I feel the songs within the episode seem to not be as good as in the first series, the stories themselves are improving! As you will see when you watch this episode, Murray Hewitt (played by Rhys Darby) has become indeed one of the strongest characters! (although it was a bit disappointing to see that Brett and Jemaine (the stars of the show) had less funny lines, I'm pleased that at least Murray is still making me laugh! So if you're a conchords fan, you will definitely still enjoy watching this episode! I don't want to spoil it though, so you can see for yourself, but you may find that this episode probably isn't the best example to show any of your friends if they've never seen them before! If you want to get them hooked on flight of the conchords, better to show them some of series 1, and let them see the rest once they understand it a bit better! Then it's enjoyment all the way!
