Flight of the Conchords

Born to folk!

English     7.9     2007     USA


The trials and tribulations of a two man, digi-folk band who have moved from New Zealand to New York in the hope of forging a successful music career. So far they've managed to find a manager (whose "other" job is at the New Zealand Consulate), one fan (a married obsessive) and one friend (who owns the local pawn shop) -- but not much else.

Flight of the Conchords, a light hearted shoe based around Bret and Jermaine trying to live the average life of two New Zealander musicians in New York. I really believe this show was a hidden gem and revolutionary for the time. The humour is in the perfect balance of just enough stupidity mixed with dry wit that it works incredibly well. I've found myself coming back to this show after not watching it for years and actually rediscovering them through their music (CO written alongside the show, it's actually really good go listen). Flight of the Conchords brings a low budget chic to it's look and through it's use of transitions and dirty visuals capture the grotty life that the protagonists face. If you haven't watched this show I can more than highly recommend it, I've always loved this show as well as the band so I may be biased but I can guarantee that you will not be disappointed.
