Oh HBO, what would I do without you? This show makes me grin, so much. I laugh out loud often, when I'm watching it with other people. When I watch it alone the laughs are internal... but my smile is constant. And wide.
Whereas Hot Rod (the movie from the other day) was really stupid and kinda funny, this show is kinda stupid and really, really, really funny. Flight of the Conchords, "New Zealand's 4th most popular folk-parody duo" take on New York. Bret and Jemaine are best friends, roommates, and bandmates. At least twice per episode they break out into song. My favourite so far is from the first episode: "The Most Beautiful Girl in the Room" (You're so beautiful, you could be a waitress / You're so beautiful, you could be an air hostess in the 60s / You're so beautiful, you could be a part-time model). See also: "Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros". And the songs are actually pretty catchy.
Other highlights: Fleetwood Mac jokes, and a pretty fabulous dream-David Bowie.
PLUS: I haven't had a celebrity crush in forever, and Jemaine Clement has succeeded in ending my dry spell. Hi.
Love love love. And it's out on DVD!
