Product Description

All ten episodes from the second season of the HBO comedy series following the trials and tribulations of a two man digi-folk band from New Zealand as they try to make a name for themselves in New York City. In this series, Bret and Jermaine decide to sack their inept manager and attempt to go it alone on their journey to stardom. Episodes are: 'A Good Opportunity', 'A New Cup', 'Tough Brets', 'Murray Takes It to the Next Level', 'Unnatural Love', 'Love Is a Weapon of Choice', 'Prime Minister', 'NewZealandTown', 'Wingmen' and 'Evicted'.

From Amazon.co.uk

Following on from the quite exceptional debut season, Flight Of The Conchords’ sophomore run thankfully manages to recapture the comedy genius that put the show on the map in the first place. And, bluntly, it’s often painfully funny.

If you’re new to the show, it basically follows two folk singers from New Zealand, who are trying to make it big in New York City. Naturally, in Flight Of The Conchords, things don’t quite go to plan, and it becomes clear that America might not be ready for the pair’s musical creations.

Powered by Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement in the lead roles, but backed by a particularly good supporting cast (including the wonderful Rhys Darby as their part-time manager), Flight Of The Conchords’ second season throws up some real classics. We get Bret starting up a gang, Jemaine’s realisation that he’s slept with someone from Australia, and, of course, the visit of the New Zealand Prime Minister. There are ten episodes in total, and while not every one of them hits the heights of the series at its peak, this is still a comedy goldmine.

Easily one of the freshest and most original comedy shows currently running, Flight Of The Conchords really is something of a treat, and if anything, season two exceeds the standards set by its forerunner. Roll on season three. Please. --Jon Foster

The first season of Flight of the Conchords was, without question, one of the finest, most refreshing television shows of recent memory. It was therefore wonderful to find the second season as good as the first.

The main players (Bret, Jermaine, Murray, Mel & Dave) have organically evolved into more rounded characters in this season thanks predominantly to a tighter script. Furthermore, thanks to our knowledge of season one, each character has a distinct history of which we are aware. So, we know all about how Mel is the Conchords only, and over obsessed fan, and how Dave is a patholigical liar. Therefore, we don't need this explaining to us everytime said character pops up. The very sight of Mel outside Bret and Jermaine's house thus instantly induces comic potential. You really feel in this regard that the writers, and perhaps the actors too, have a tighter grip of the main characters. Where season one needed to set the scene, season two is able to flow more freely.

The songs are not as immediate as they are in the first season, and they are certainly more parody based. The good songs, however, are as good as anything you will hear in the first season; "Too Many Dicks on the Dance Floor" being my poersonal highlight. Dave and Mel both pop up with a tune too, as does Murray. This brings me onto, for me, one of the best things about this season, Murray. His role has moved beyond being the manager of season one and more into the realms of elder brother or father figure to the two inept Conchords. The comedy throughout is not just as funny as season one but it is much subtler, and therefore, much more enduring.

All in all, the second season is as good and as funny as the first and in parts exceeds its predecessor. It is, without question, to be best enjoyed as a follow up to the first and as I say, it is much more rewarding in general. You really feel that this is a much more confident outing from the Conchords and a complete triumph.

They're still from New Zealand, still in New York, still broke, and still outrageously funny.

Not a lot has changed in the second season of "Flight of the Conchords," which is just fine because the brilliant writing and hilarious songs are only getting better. Sadly this was also the last season of the show (Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement wanted to move on), but it sure makes you wish that the Kiwi band's fun could go on forever.

Bret and Jemaine fire Murray (Rhys Darby) because he's spending all his time on the Crazy Dogggz, and instead land a gig on a commercial for women's toothpaste. But then a lawsuit is leveled at the Crazy Dogggz and Murray finds himself broker than ever, while the Conchords find that they may be in trouble with immigration.

When the status quo is restored, Bret and Jemaine have a whole new host of problems: romance with an Aussie, forming a street gang, attempting to top the "Friendship Graph," falling in love with the same girl and trying to win her over with epileptic dog benefits, Garfunkeling, an addiction to hair gel, attempting to get Bret a girlfriend, and resorting to prostitution to pay for a new cup.

And Murray's job becomes more complicated when the Prime Minister of New Zealand comes to New York, wanting to meet President Obama and open "New Zealandtown." And finally, Murray comes up with the ultimate plan for Bret and Jemaine's musical career...

Finishing "Flight of the Conchords: The Complete Second Season" is a bittersweet experience, because it's one of those rare TV shows that ended when it was at its quality peak instead of dragging it out for dozens of seasons... and frankly, it leaves you longing for more like Bret longs for his own cup.

"Flight of the Conchords" picks up right where they left off in series 1 - Bret and Jemaine are still penniless musicians playing gigs to single figure audiences. If it ain't broke, right?

The episodes are still completely charming but you can see a rise in production values immediately with the brilliant Murray (played superbly by Rhys Darby) bursting into song within the first 5 mins of the first episode while walking across a massive top floor office and the camera floating off into space as his operatic voice hurtles across the sky. The fantasy sequences are also improved upon with top quality effects making them look like more polished music videos.

The characters of Bret and Jemaine - innocent, somewhat gormless, kind of stupid, always hopeless - are still the same as the first series but the episodes have gotten sharper and funnier. There's an entire episode based around Bret buying a mug for $2.95 (they only have one mug and have a timetable over when they get to use it) and the brilliant visit of the New Zealand Prime Minister ("What's the state of the environment? Aw, that's terrible! Can't you send your cousins round to... y'know clean it up a bit?").

Also Rhys Darby should be singled out as by far the funniest guy in this series. He steals every scene he's in with his bizarre manager who's similar to Bret and Jemaine's characters but has a dash of David Brent added in. He's that strange mix of cunning and stupid, with a lot of delusion and killer lines. This series is worth watching just for his character alone.

It ends (2 series, such a shame, I could've watched another 2 series) so well with the guys making an off-broadway production of their lives in America.

Such a funny series, probably the best sitcom since Gervais/Merchant's The Office and a definite must for fans of comedy. The music's not bad either.
