Flight of the Conchords

Yes, yes, I'm BBC 4's bitch now (did you see the Jonathan Ross thing on Steve Ditko? Just lovely), but please please watch Flight of the Conchords on Tuesday night (starts Tue 25 Sep, 21:30 - 22:00) if you can.

And yes, annoying if you can't get BBC 4, but it'll be on terrestrial soon, and if you can't get BBC 4 but are techno-savvy enough to read this blog, I'm sure you can find other ways of watching it HINT HINT.

I could put up a YouTube of the Flights, as nobody calls them*, but instead I'm going to put up something my close personal internet chum Godzilla Bankrolls found: another musical comedy duo called The Smothers Brothers, who made me lol as I have never lolled before.






* I coudn't, apparently, as HBO have pulled them all, booooo.



UPDATE: Well I don't care, I LIKE IT.

ALSO: PP points out that free delicious sample of Flight of the Conchords are available on iTunes

Hahahaha. That made me laugh plenty and gave me a warm feeling inside. Who knew that old folks could be so funny. Who were they? Are they always funny? Are they dead? A trip to Wikipedia must be made forthwith, I think....

Also stuff from their stage shows (ya boo sucks to HBO). In particular my very favourite...

Smother's Brothers - be still my beating heart. Ta James.

You at Serafinowicz tomorrow JH?

james henry said...

Good stuff GB, thanks.

Is that the screening? Not sure, tomorrow's a bit bonkers - although I think some of my work colleagues might be attending.

Godzilla Bankrolls said...

Yeah, the screening.

Thinking about it, I am literally skint, so any suggestion of drinks I was about to make is palpably ludicrous.

Are you along to any of the others?

here today, gone tomorrow said...

I LOVE "Flight of the Conchords". Go watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGOohBytKTU

GB - Well I haven't technically been 'invited' to that one, so not sure - if I do go tonight, I am wearing a greying t-shirt with Wolverine on it.

HTGT - that's in the series, that one. It is good.

I posted your interview on my blog. Thank you!

Valerie said...

It really worries me that you think this is funny... and I think this is funny.. and the Smothers Brothers were a favorite of MY MOTHER.

Oh well. I'll recover.

There are other little delicious snippets of Flight of the Conchords on their fansites (or they might just have the one). I think it's called WhatTheFolk.com or something like that. You can get MP3s or nifty little videos, hurrah!

The show is finally here in NZ and every Monday I make the trip to my boyfriend's house to watch it (and Spooks as well) because I have rubbish TV reception at home and one MUST see FotC in proper clear-screen glory!

Sylvia said...

You mean there could finally be something on TV, apart from the IT Crowd, that I would enjoy anything as much as Green Wing?

I will make sure to tune in. I'll be back from yoga and rescuing child from being an open evening guide at school.

Billy has insisted I watch the Conchords. I have BBC4. He doesn't.

HBO picked them up for a second season, to begin airing early 2008!
