Flight of the Conchords: The Complete First Season


Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie — a.k.a. Flight of the Conchords — may be “New Zealand’s 4th Most Popular Folk Parody Duo,” but in the USA, finding someone who knows their act is about as easy as finding a kiwi nest in Central Park. To rectify this oversight, Jemaine and Bret have moved to New York’s East Village to conquer America, one fan (literally) at a time.Unlike most HBO series, Flight of the Conchords does not want to set the world on fire. It is droll and deadpan to beat the band. If you like Tenacious D, They Might Be Giants, Jonathan Richman, Leningrad Cowboys Go America, and silly Pythonian wordplay, then its off-center charms will definitely strike a resonant chord. The Conchords are comprised of funky, funny folk duo Bret McKenzie and mutton-chopped Jemaine Clement, transplanted New Zealanders trying to make it in New York. Bret, their incompetent manager, Murray (Rhys Darby) notes, has “the right attitude,” while Jemaine has “what I like to

  1. Review by ChaCha for Flight of the Conchords: The Complete First Season
    Wasn’t expecting much from HBO comedy after Ali G. I mean, how could you possibly compare or compete with Da Ali G Show? I never thought I could fall in love all over again but guess what? These virtually unknown guys known as Jermaine and Brett have me laughing every week and also groovin’ to their music. The show is so funny – even the opening credits are funny. These guys are truly amazing and they make it all look so effortless. Part of me hopes they stay unknown so we fans can have them to ourselves but they are just too good. These guys will become well known soon enough. Love you Brett!

    I am someone with a low tolerance for weird or silly things, and I didn’t expect to love this show – I was watching with my husband who had seen them before on television and wanted to see it. Flight of the Conchords is extremely funny – the wry sense of humor and excellent writing make up for the lack of reality. The three main characters, Jemaine, Bret and Murray are so sweet and earnest and appealing that I look forward to seeing the show each week and will definitely buy the DVD.

    First of all: let me start by saying I give the actual show, and these guys 5 stars. This show is hilarious, and I love it.

    The reason I’m only giving the DVD 3 stars is that there are NO extra features AT ALL! Nothing! The stuff on the DVD is exactly what was on TV, no extras, no deleted scenes, no commentaries, no nothing.

    This came as a bit of a disappointment, for a fan who’s been awaiting this release so we could get MORE Conchords!

    What about some interviews? Extra footage? Life of Murry? Maybe even a snippet (or perhaps the whole thing) from the appearance they did on HBO’s One Night Stand, which was amazing and funny and is available nowhere.

    I mean come on… nothing? Really?

    So if you’ve never seen the show, or missed a few episodes, if you do not have HBO and just want to see what you’ve missed – by all means: I highly recommend this series.

    If like me, you have HBO, a DVR, and have seen all the episodes, maybe even more than once, then… you might be a bit disappointed.

    But hey, at least we can get the subtitles in like three different languages.
