Kookiejar over at A Fraternity of Dreamers has been talking for awhile of her passionate love for Flight of the Conchords. Since we didn’t have HBO, I had no idea what she was talking about. But recently, we decided not to put our life on hold anymore (what with the not moving and so on), and we went ahead and signed up for digital cable, which includes HBO. That means when the time comes, we can watch Big Love. Yay! Also, (and more importantly) we get Sci-Fi, which means we can watch Battlestar Galactica when it starts and repeats of Star Trek: The Next Generation for now, as well as repeats of 90210 on the Soap Opera Network. Yay!
We also have access to On Demand, which has 5 or 6 episodes of Flight of the Conchords listed. We’re having a lot of fun watching them, though I will admit that the episodes are uneven, with some being pretty darned funny, and others, just kind of funny. The video, above, is our favorite thus far. It was the first episode we saw, and the story is that Bret and Jermaine are being discriminated against by a fruit merchant, because of their Kiwi ways (they’re from New Zealand), and they’re sick of it. They have these silly fantasy song sequences, which I kinda think are the best part of the show. Watch and enjoy.
