Quotes

Jemaine: It doesn't matter what country someone's from, or what they look like, or the colour of their skin. It doesn't matter what they smell like, or that they spell words slightly differently-some would say, more correctly. I'm a person. Bret's a person. You're a person. That person over there is a person. And each person deserves to be treated like a person.

User Reviews

 
This show truly put Entourage to shame.
3 July 2007 | by Lasse AndersenSee all my reviews

Sunday night has been and still is HBO's night to shine, with great drama presented by the made in America Sopranos and its mafia tale(now its the surfer noir John From Cincinatti) and humor presented by Entourage. The Sopranos ended with a blackout and confusion and the fun that once was in Entourage is missing in its fourth season.

This show is about a band called the Flight of the Conchords its a typical fish out water scenario presented in a very unique and quirky way, the show might reminds somebody of the short lived Tenacious D (Jack Black) series that also aired on HBO, because of the band element but this show is much more low-key and is extremely funny, the New Zealand accent just killes me! And the performances in this show are great especially by the bands terrible manager hilarious. This is definitely one of the funniest things on TV right now, together with the Office and 30 Rock. If you have a twisted kind of humor (ala arrested development) you will love this show...
