Trivia

Before Flight of the Conchords (2007) 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 named Kipper. The radio series was popular, and in 2006 they were awarded the bronze Sony Radio Academy award for comedy. See more »

Witty Genius in a World of Over the Top Comedy
29 June 2007 | by golightly13See all my reviews

To me, this show is bliss. I watched both of the first two episodes aired and am already in love. The genius lies in the delivery. The seriousness of which Bret and Jermaine approach the situation adds a certain amount of wit to every comment made. Pay close attention and the slightest musical references are made, such as Fleetwood Mac's "love square". It is the subtlety of the comedy that makes this show stand out above the rest.

And as for the musical moments, I think I can speak for if not everyone, then mostly everyone when i say that my inner most thoughts are always in song.

kudos Bret and Jermaine for creating a unique clever show that i'll look forward to every week.
