Flight of the Conchords is a show about a struggling New Zealand band in New York City. They make quirky and hilarious songs, try to pick up girls, and try to make it big (but keep failing to do so).
The show stars Bret McKenzie and Jermaine Clement, two talented songwriters that make original yet parodical music. The premise of the show is simple – the audience simply follows these two musicians who are barely surviving New York. But since the musicians are from New Zealand, the show has a sort of awkward humor that I really enjoy and it makes the show very quirky. Jermaine being the one who especially nails this.
Believe it or not but the band manager, Murray (played by Rhys Darby) is my favorite character in this series. I don’t know why but I just think he’s relatable and damn hilarious as the enthusiastic yet inept manager. And I like his accent the best. It’s also great to see Kristen Schaal who plays Mel in the show, the band’s only fan, and Eugene Mirman who plays their landlord (both are on the TV series Bob’s Burgers). You’ll also get to see some familiar comedian faces throughout the series as well.
