Although it's already been screened in the U.S., we're not due to get season two of Flight of the Conchords here in the U.K. until May. I'm afraid I just couldn't wait that long, though, so ended up downloading the series over the internet, and by crikey it doesn't disappoint. Along with Peep Show, Summer Heights High, Extras and The IT Crowd this is one of the funniest TV comedies of the past few years, for me. We'll have to make the most of this second series of FotC, mind, as it looks like it's going to be the last. Ahh.
***************Mild Spoilers Ahoy!***************
Some of my favourite bits from season two: Brian the New Zealand Prime Minister, the Australian girlfriend/Australians in general as New Zealenders' nemeses, Mary Lynn Rajskub (Chloe from 24) and the Simon & Garfunkel episode, the epileptic dogs episode, Murray's friendship graph and his fort/den, and this - Jemaine and Bret's superstalker Mel's very own song!
