The Flight of the Conchords: One of the best things to happen me so far in 2009...

I don't why I slept on this show for so long, but I'm sure as hell glad that I caught onto The Flight of the Conchords. Considering that they were formerly New Zealand's fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo, I'm a little shocked it took me so long to stumble onto to them. If you've never caught an episode, heed the advice of Red's first tattoo and WAKE UP because this shit is great.

Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement pretty much play themselves as the show follows the two characters trying to make it as a band in New York City. The songs and music are woven into the plot of each episode and the result is pure gold. Each episode has roused up some good ol' fashioned belly aches from me and I enjoy the two characters more and more with each passing minute.

Now, if you are new to the show as well, you may or may not know that Season 2 has just begun, as it launched on January 18th 2009. So, there is more than enough time to grab hold of the First season and get caught up.

I've included a clip below of Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros, which features the characters rapping as their alter egos. The clips pretty much shows the premise of the show, being that the two characters go about living their daily lives and then they break out into song. The show also features a strong supporting cast of characters, ranging from their awkward band manager Murray to their only fan Mel. Watch an episode, I do not think you will be disappointed.

Enjoy the clip:
