  1. The level of cleverness of Flight of the Conchords is off the charts.

    The duo's knack for a peculiarly modest zaniness is shared with the brilliant supporting cast.

    The second season of HBO's Flight of the Conchords offers another wave of quirky hilarity of the very highest caliber, from Bret pawning his guitar to pay the rent, then mimicking guitar-playing while humming his part onstage, to Jemaine looking to supplement the duo's income with a little freelance prostitution.
  4. That the two men are in their 30s makes their perseverance more poignant--to somewhat overstate the case--and that they have no money places them in a long and honorable line of comedians who cannot put two cents together to buy a glass of seltzer.
  5. And as the new season begins, it becomes clear that gags are easier to write in abundance than gag lyrics. The non-melodic portions of the show are still a scream.
  6. 75
    Nothing's less funny than a comedy that tries too hard. But Flight of the Conchords pulls off the neat trick of being amusing without appearing to try at all.

    In the early Season 2 episodes, the strain shows in the songs, which service the plot but aren't as memorable as the old ones. But the scripts are as funny and tightly written as ever.

    This is a brilliant show. Even more enjoyable if you understand the nuances of kiwi humour.

While there are fewer immediately classic songs, the songs are generally as enjoyable as the first season. But since the songs were written around the show and not the other way around, the cohesiveness of the story line is much better. Rhys Darby is fantastic yet again, and the conchords' naive characters left me in stitches. Expand

    Wow, i really can't understand how people who liked the first series can enjoy the second. I was and still a huge fan of the first, but Wow, i really can't understand how people who liked the first series can enjoy the second. I was and still a huge fan of the first, but the second...what can i say, it is so dissapointing. Flat scenarios, mediocre songs, and the only things that 0bret and jemain seem to do is to look stupid and mostly silent...shame. Expand
