Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie — a.k.a. Flight of the Conchords ("New Zealand's 4th Most Popular Folk Parody Duo") — have brought their act to New York's East Village with hopes of conquering America . . . one fan (literally) at a time. But finding someone in the U.S.A. who knows their act is about as easy as finding a kiwi nest in Central Park. In Season 1 of this irreverent musical-comedy series, cutting-edge folk-comedy performance duo Jemaine and Bret move to downtown Manhattan where they hang out, go to bohemian parties, interact with their one obsessed fan, get mugged by inept thugs, and pursue elusive women. Their innocent, misguided efforts to find romance or land a gig rarely yield dividends, but they do spawn an abundance of plaintive tunes about life, love, and the pursuit of an elusive music video.

Dry, wry, charming.
A comedy that isn't self-congratulatory, back slapping, camera zooming cymbal-crashingly in-your-face is a refreshing change. It's light, sleight humour doesn't mean it isn't laugh-out-loud funny or smart. Jokes are given time to be enjoyed by the audience with long looks and pauses. The humour is well observed and rarely puts a foot wrong. It's not your average brash and loud comedy, but it's twice as funny for it.
Close to brilliance
Though some of the storylines are repetitive throughout the episodes, this is one of the most entertaining shows I've seen in a long time. The secondary characters make all the difference, and certain episodes can be replayed endlessly and never get old.
This show is awesome. What I love about the episodes is their ability to never bore or get old. If you have listened to any of their songs (go do it if you haven't), and enjoyed them, then these episodes will suit you very well. The episodes are just like songs; they can be played over and over again and never get old. A 5 star rating is an understatement. I would recommend Mugged, Drive By, Bowie, Bret Gives Up The Dream, and Yoko. Hilarious.
