Flight of the Conchords' next season take-off may be its last.According to The New Zealand Herald, famous sons Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie shared with British magazine Q that they were seriously mulling ending the series after the second season due to the creative struggles they've encountered in making it."The second series seems to me like it would be a good end to the show," McKenzie said. "I feel like another 10 [episodes]... that will be enough."The duo, which used already written tunes in the show's first season, is still in the process of writing the new music narratives, which they've found "difficult.""We've got a lot of half-songs," Clement said. "We've got an album's worth of beginnings of songs." Season 2 of the HBO cult hit was scheduled for a 2008 bow, but has since been postponed until next year. The comedy is up for four Emmys this month, including two in the Original Music and Lyrics category. Joyce Eng
It's hard to believe that 12 weeks ago I was a newbie to Flight of the Conchords and now am a full-fledged fan. Should I get a T-shirt or a cap? The best part about having a first-season finale is that there will be a second season. Here's to next summer!In Murray's meeting, item No. 1 was Todd. Todd! He's a bongo player that Murray met while on nitrous oxide at the dentist's office. Proud of his decision to increase the size of the band to three, Murray tells a stunned Bret and Jemaine that they can now be a proper band, like the "Police-men". Sensing their resistance, Murray tells the guys to trust him, like the first time he saw them on stage and told them to face the front. And they've never looked back. He also said to give Todd a chance, sort of like the John Lennon song "Give Peace a Chance." Item 2 on Murrays list was about getting an interview with Rolling Stone, but he wasnt sure if it was the magazine or the group. (There was a definite "no" from the band.)Tod...
Hi readers! Mario here. Im a Flight fan and will be taking over the blog from now on, so I just thought Id introduce myself. Now, on to the episode
Mon dieu! Who knew what the desire for a croissant could do? In yet another smile-inducing episode, we first see our dynamic duo as they are peering into the window of a French pastry shop. Jemaine is craving a croissant, but when Bret says he doesn't like them, he becomes Jemaines wingman, à la Top Gun. Well, sort of. As they meet Lisa and Felicia at the checkout counter, the foursome is immediately transported to Gérard Depardieu-land, wearing striped shirts, riding bicyclettes, and singing happily about baguettes, Camembert cheese, and the soup du jour. If only amour could always be like this. Leaving the French discotheque for an American bar, their first double date isnt working for Jemaine, who asks Bret to swap Felicia for Lisa. He agrees, though it doesnt help Jemaine get to first base...
Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement, Flight of the Conchords
In an upcoming episode of HBO's Flight of the Conchords (premiering Sunday at 9 pm/ET), series stars Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie spoof Crocodile Dundee's famous "That's not a knife" line. It's an interesting tip of the cap considering they're looking to bring their own brand of comedy to the United States from the Southern Hemisphere, just as Paul Hogan did two decades ago. TVGuide.com chatted with the New Zealand musical-comedy duo about their new show, which follows the misadventures of a Kiwi music duo transplanted in New York City.
