How long can Flight of the Conchords last?

Well, lets hope for another 5 seasons. Anyways, the guys have spoken about ending the show for a while now after season 2. Bret McKenzie has stated that "Season 2 would be a fitting end to the series". But I'd love to see them go on a lot longer. Lets hope the creative juices can continue on. Here I have another article from The New Zealand Herald.

Conchords just get better and better

4:00AM Sunday Dec 21, 2008

An American-based New Zealander says the new Conchords series is delivering the goods despite the comedians' writing concerns.

The first episode has been watched by more than 175,000 Americans online, and Maryland-based Kiwi Jason Currie said the show was every bit as brilliant as the first series.

"The guys are superb - but Murray the manager [played by Rhys Darby] is better than ever. He almost steals the show."

Highlights of the first episode include the Conchords falling out with Murray, who's taken up with a new band - The Crazy Dogs.

Some of the best laughs are at Murray's regular meeting with the comedians. When he tells the Conchords their CD has gone double platinum in America, Jemaine's laconic response is: "How'd that happen?"

The excitement soon fizzles as Murray realises he's referring to The Crazy Dogs.

Jemaine then gives Brett a nod. Brett digs into his pocket and from a tiny piece of paper reads: "Dear Murray we want to fire you as our manager".

They head their separate ways, until the comedians run into strife over not having work permits or Green Cards.

Conchord fans furious about premiere

As most of you all know, the season 2 premiere aired on on the 17th of December. But it was restricted to the United States only, which in hand angered many kiwis.

Here's what the New Zealand Herald had to say:

Furious Flight of the Conchords fans have hurled abuse at the show's producers for restricting a sneak peek at the second series to US audiences.

A preview of the premiere episode was on comedy website Funny or Die this week ahead of the show's return to American screens in January.

The marketing ploy was heavily promoted, with a clock counting down the seconds until the clip went live. But international fans were only told they would not be able to view the clip just minutes before the countdown reached zero.

Hundreds of irate viewers - many from New Zealand - posted comments on the website claiming it was "mad" and "arrogant" the preview couldn't be seen in the country the show's stars hail from.

One wrote: "A brother Kiwi should be able to see these idiots in action. Corporate shite."

Another said: "What is up with the whole US-only thing! People around the world love these guys! Especially down here in NZ where they are from!!"

Another said it was unfair to lure people to the website with the promise of a preview, only to reveal the truth minutes before it was due to screen: "I'm not mad that we can't watch it ... I'm mad that we weren't made aware of this until 2am my time... until the moment it was released on the website."

The website, managed by Hollywood star Will Ferrell, of Old School and Anchorman fame, posted a response from the show's producers, US pay-per-view channel HBO, on Friday. They explained the preview could only be played in the US for legal and contractual reasons.

"Trust us, we all want the whole world to be able to watch Flight of the Conchords. To be honest, legally we only have rights to stream the video in the US, but there will be other opportunities internationally to watch it.

"International fans please check your local providers for additional details regarding when the episode will be broadcast in your area."

Expectations for the second series were raised after the show's creators, Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie, picked up a Grammy award for best comedy album in February.

The first series is a huge hit on DVD around the world and co-star Rhys Darby is in demand, starring with Jim Carrey in Yes Man, due for release in New Zealand on January 1.

But Clement, McKenzie and Darby have all spoken of concerns about whether the second series would be as good as the first.

A Prime spokeswoman says the second series will screen here early in the new year.

Season 2 premiere is up

So I was a bit off on the time the video would show up, so you should be able to view the video on Funnyordie. Now I'm not sure how long the season 2 premiere will be up, so catch it quickly before they take it off, because you never know, it could be taken down. Lets hope it stays for a while, if not, forever.

Anyways, check the video out here.

I would've posted the video here, but it seems to cover everything up. :(
