My whole family fell in love with Brett and Jermaine in Season One. We couldn't wait for Season Two to start on HBO and I admit,we were a little disappointed in a few of the episodes. However, after the season ended, I watched all the episodes several times again on HBO "On Demand" in April and was shocked at how fabulous some of the episodes that I thought I didn't like were. I ended up LOVING Season Two. My favorite episode is still Unnatural Love where Jermaine dates the Australian girl...Too Many [...] on the Dance Floor and Carol Brown are great, creative, funny songs! The Cup and the Tough Bretts are other great episodes. Have fun! You'll enjoy good intellectual humor with any of the Conchords Seasons DVD's. I can't wait to get mine!

Not sure what is up with all the bad reviews. Still a funny unique show, better than most shows even on a less successful episode. Glad that Jemaine, Bret, and Rhys got another season. Maybe they used up a lot of ideas the first season but I still enjoyed the Austrailian girlfriend Keitha, Epileptic dog benefit, Jemaine selling himself in the street, guys discovering hair gel, and their final tragic downfall.

Favorite songs amoung the parodies ... should be dance floor classic "Too Many Dicks On the Dance Floor", the dead on synth pop video "Fashion is Danger", the sensitive rap track "Hurt Feelings".

I loved Season 1 of this offbeat, sharp, and charming show. The reviewers here who disparage the second season mystify me. This was mostly fine stuff. Season 2 offers some higher highs and some lower lows than Season 1, thereby creating a package that is about as good, but this set has two episodes far beyond anything done in the first season. Love Is the Weapon of Choice and Prime Minister can stand against any TV comedy anywhere. Other episodes, especially the first, were as good as any from Season 1. But these two especially were biting, frightfully clever, well plotted, and full of surprises. They are the most entertaining video I've seen in a long time. The Japanese karaoke was brilliant. I watched it twice in two days and, if anything, it was funnier the second day.

Unfortunately, these two sparkling gems are followed by two undistinguished rocks that probably looked funny during the creation, but failed badly to amuse and sink like, well, stones. Predictable, tedious, and ugly, they overstayed their welcome long before their completely expected conclusions. (And having a guest star adds nothing if the tale stinks.) When making a story about lovable losers, the characters cannot be too lovable, nor can they be too pitiful. There is a delicate balance when the foolishness is just enough to be plausible but not too much to make us groan. These episodes crossed that line repeatedly.

Four hours of glorious quality in five hours of material is a good deal. The deleted scenes were hilarious...good enough to stand on their own! Snap it up and enjoy!

I can think of other excellent comedy duos. I can think of other musical duos which I really enjoy and put on my ipod. I can think of other performance artists who do leading edge work which is visually experimental. I cannot think of any other duo, either currently or in the past, who can do all three and do them all well. The only act this even sort of reminds of is Martin & Lewis because Dean Martin could sing and their comedy was pretty good for its day. I wouldn't go so far as to call Martin & Lewis's work performance art though. Other than Martin & Lewis, I can't think of anyone else like these guys at all.

Why are viewers here debating season 1 versus season 2? This is not remotely like anything else out there and it is so innovative that I can scarcely believe that it survived for a second season. If it had been on anything but HBO I think it would have been too leading edge and been cancelled after the first season. I'm not comparing the two; I am in grovel mode that there were two seasons!

Ok, here is the premise. There are two musicians from New Zealand who come to New York City (of all places) to break into the entertainment world as musicians. Their manager works for the New Zealand Commission in New York City and that job is such a no brainer that he basically can do whatever he wants with his time. The band has exactly one fan, a woman. The only reason she is a fan is that she has the hots for Bret. The guys are poor as can be. They live together in a subsistence lifestyle. And they are complete nerds on top of everything else. At first I liked Bret best because (being a woman), I found him cuter. But Jemaine has grown on me and I've gotten past his awful glasses and sideburns ('70s style sideburns). Their manager I find positively uproarious.

This is a superb show. Season 2 is not as good as season one, but still enjoyable. I love those guys. Bret is my favorite, love his t-shirts. When I fell upset, I watch and laugh and it all that matters.

I'm a big Flight of the Conchords fan. I have seen lots of their music on YouTube, and seen them live, and watched the first season a couple of times through at least. Although I enjoyed it all, I thought the second half of the first season was not as strong as the first six episodes, and I had heard that they had trouble writing a second season and an entirely new set of songs, so I would have forgiven them if this season wasn't very good.

Fortunately, it is great, for the most part. I think the first six episodes of the second season are just as good as anything they've done, with spectacular songs and hilariously surreal comedic scenes. "Do you know any actual women, Dave?" "Yeah, pretty much."

The last handful of episodes are a bit slower and get a bit awkward, but still have some good moments. At any rate, it's worth getting this just for episode 5 (Unnatural Love, where Jemaine dates an Australian, with the songs "Too Many Dicks on the Dance Floor" and "Carol Brown") and episode 6 (Love is a Weapon of Choice, where Jemaine and Bret both want to date Kristen Wiig, with the songs "We're Both in Love with a Sexy Lady" and "Think About the Epileptic Dogs") and watching those two over and over again.
