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.

Reviews I'd seen suggested the second series was not as good as the first - don't believe them! The songs may be slightly less funny but the situation comedy is better than ever, none more so than the episode in which Jemaine dates an Aussie girl. It's a must buy...

Having missed the BBC show, I was looking forward to watching FOTC on DVD. I'd already seen clips of lots of the songs on youtube and wanted to see the story around it. I have to confess I was a little disappointed in episodes 1,2 and 3. Murray seemed to be the only funny character and even Jemaine, my favourite was only going through the motions. HOWEVER by episode 5 I was peeing my pants. I think this series is funnier than series 1 and my favourite favourite episode is the one where the Prime Minister of New Zealand visits and it coincides with B & J being booked as a Simon & Garfunkel tribute act.

If you buy this, stick with it and you'll grow to love it over time. None of the songs are as catchy as the first series, but I love Sugarlumps, Demon Woman and I Told You I Was Freaky. Classic stuff!

As always, when you hear your favourite artist is releasing a second opus, a part of you hopes that it will be as good, if not better, than their first effort.

I think the second series is a genuinely strong piece of work, full of quirky details, jokes layered and fired at you so quickly you can still discover new elements if you watch them over and over again.

Obviously Jemaine and Brett are funnier than ever and seem to be in their element.

Murray's character has been developped so much more than in the first series, he is the thread that holds the whole thing. He is the saddest wannabee cool guy but portrayed in the best possible way !

Mel has been developped to become even more obsessed with them.

Some songs are funnier than others "too many d~*ks on the dancefloor" is my favourite. In fact the episode in which this song appears is directed by Michel Gondry. He's done a really good job at it.

Thumbs up, I particularly like the extras at the end ! Lots of deleted scenes, interviews....

Shorter than season 1 but no less funny. In fact the musical parodies are even more amusing - look out for "Sugarlumps", "You don't have to be a prostitute" and "Too many dicks on the dancefloor" - I went and bought the CD on the strength of them and haven't stopped laughing since.

Warning: Flight of the Conchords is seriously addictive!

Having just watched the whole of the second series I can say that it's as good, if not better than the first series.

Only having 10 episodes, it's shorter than the first, but is full of more of the same and better songs. Episode highlights include Jemaine becoming a male prostitute, Jemaine falling in love with an Australian, the New Zealand Prime Minister becoming part of the team, the lads doing a benefit gig for epileptic dogs and discovering hair gel. Some of the songs are class, from Carol Brown to Mel's solo song Dreams, it's an essential DVD for your collection especially if you loved the first series. It doesn't let you down, and unfortunately looks like it's the last series as well, so savour the comedy classic while you can.

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.
