Review: Flight of the Conchords
Flight of the Conchords is a comedy-folk duo from New Zealand and the two members decided to make a series about their lives. The characters are the two members of the band, Bret McKenzie and Jermaine Clement, and the series is a fictionalized version of their lives as they recently move to New York and try to make a name on the music world here.
The two artists look more like geeks, are both a bit odd and barely manage to live from one day to the next. Bret and Jermaine live in the same apartment with their agent, Murray, a guy working at the New Zealand consulate that finds it extremely difficult to get the duo perform anywhere. The two do not express their emotions very well, and this is a good thing as some of the best moments in the series are based on this and how they turn these into songs.
In addition to their agent Murray (Rhys Darby), other secondary characters are Mel, the single and most annoying fan of their band and Dave Mohumbhai, the guy that rents them the apartment and offers them advice on how to cope with New York and the American culture. Rhys Darby as Murray does a fantastic job mainly due to his experience as an ingenious comedian in New Zealand. He combines narrative with drama and creates more characters while accompanying his acts with sound effects.
Bret and Jermaine play a sort of folk mixed with a bunch of other genres and there are plenty subtle enough jokes mainly in reference to New Zealand. It is a sort of impulsive humor; at times, characters seem to feel compelled to something totally meaningless and stupid that it makes it hilarious.
Flight of the Conchords may not make too much sense, but it certainly is hilarious. Unfortunately, the duo decided to put an end to the show after two seasons mainly because writing and performing ended up taking too much time.
