  1. "Flight of the Conchords" may well be the funniest thing you've seen in ages and -- at least for a half hour -- answers the question of whether HBO has any good shows left.
  2. 100
    TV's most original and irresistible new comic concoction.
  3. There are no big sociopolitical statements here, no guerilla-style confrontations, no scenes of squirmy awkwardness, no multilayered pop culture references. It's just a very smart, very funny show.
  4. 88
    You should be there on Sunday night to see the premiere of something new and hilarious, and completely different.

    Though the show occasionally lapses into the “cringe comedy” mode, made popular by "The Office" and "Curb Your Enthusiasm," "Flight of the Conchords" is also quite sweet.
  6. 70
    The charms of this series are subtle, but only grow over the course of the first few episodes.
  7. “Flight of the Conchords” is funny in such an understated way that it is almost dangerous to make too much of it.
  8. 70
    "Flight of the Conchords" is one of the few TV comedies that truly can be called unique.

    "Flight of the Conchords" isn't brilliant, but it isn't awful, either, just familiar, with two likable stars who seem to be channeling the deadpan dry wit of an old Beatles movie.
  10. The guys are so polite and harmless that it's hard to dislike them even when they repeat themselves in such a short span.
  11. As a series, it could be a lot better, but there's no denying the appeal of the two musicians.

    "Flight" is pretty much a snooze until the music starts, at which point the show kicks up into something quite weird and occasionally wonderful.
  13. Its two leads, the New Zealand music-comedy duo of Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie, are deadpan and clever but so cloyingly doofy that they're not only tough to root for but difficult to watch for extended periods as well.
  14. 30
    This can be dryly funny in small doses, but Conchords really feels less like a sitcom than a Saturday Night Live sketch stretched out to about six times its shelf-life.

It was something unknown about this show that left a bitter taste in my mouth. The more people rave and ranted about it, the less I liked it. To this day, I still role my eyes when someone mentions this program. Truth be told, if I invested solid time in it, I'd probably rate it slightly higher... Maybe. Full Review »
