"The Third Conchord" Season 1, Episode 12

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 Murray's list was about getting an interview with Rolling Stone, but he wasn't sure if it was the magazine or the group. (There was a definite "no" from the band.) Todd has no problem stealing the spotlight from Bret and Jemaine and turning on the charm. Not only does he flirt with Mel, he wants to change the name of the band to Crazy Dogggz. (And wag your tail like you just can't fail.) Murray thinks Todd is as cool as the Pied Piper. And Mel gets goo-goo-eyed when he calls her a hottie. Even Jemaine, after his slap-down fight and a 20-second headlock in the park with Todd, changes his mind and fires Bret. Since he dances when he gets mad, it's at this point Bret does his best Jennifer Beals imitation combined with some funky step aerobics to an instrumental song reminiscent of the music from Flashdance. In retaliation, Bret wants to start a new band called the Original Flight of the Conchords with his new partner Demetri, who Bret says is a guitboard player. Demetri says he actually plays a keytar - a combo keyboard and guitar. Jemaine looks like he's going to puke at the thought of this. But he doesn't have to worry for long because Todd announces that he and Demetri are going to break off and tour as the Crazy Dogggz. And it pays off as their hit song and video "The Doggie Bounce" is No. 1 on the music charts in 24 countries. (Jemaine never could master the arf-arfs!) Now our dynamic duo is back together but their groove may be changing. When they see Mel on the street, she is listening to "The Doggie Bounce" on her headphones and starts to walk on by. And not only has she missed a FOTC gig, she's wearing a Crazy Dogggz T-shirt! Clearly benefiting from the new band that played in front of 98,000 people in Rio, Murray shows up with a new car, new suit and slicked-back hair. Bret and Jemaine go back to playing bingo night at the library. I've had a great summer spending time with Bret and Jemaine and taking on this blog. So until next year, I'd like to leave you with these parting words: "A Kiss Is Not a Contract" but it's very nice, "If You're Into It." Don't let the "Inner City Pressure" get to you. Remember "It's Business Time" so we have to stick together like "Sello Tape," the tape of love - the sticky stuff.
