The new season of the HBO series Flight of the Conchords (based on my favorite geeky band, New Zealand’s fifth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo) is kicking off on January 18. However, the first new episode has just been released at Funny or Die.
Unfortunately the video is only viewable in the United States, but HBO Canada will also be streaming it beginning December 23. For those of you elsewhere, I offer this, from the first season of the series:
Interestingly, Brett McKenzie was actually in Lord of the Rings (known by fans as Figwit–weird story, check out the fansite for that one).
If you haven’t checked out the band before, I highly recommend just doing a YouTube search for “Flight of the Conchords” since you can find nearly all of the music videos from the first season of the show, as well as live performances.
I have high hopes for the new season, though to be honest, I wasn’t completely crazy about this first episode. Probably because I didn’t particularly like any of the new songs… however, they did pull out “Angels,” which is an old favorite of mine.
