New Zealand's Fourth Most Popular Folk Duo

I just finished watching the second (and final) season of HBO’s Flight of the Conchords. I’m not usually a fan of musical comedy, but the New Zealand duo always manages to make me laugh with their witty parodies of pop music. The show follows Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement as they try and fail to make it in the New York music scene, all while dealing with an inept manager and the creepy stalking tendencies of their solitary fan. The second season highlights include an episode directed by Michel Gondry, a guest appearance by Art Garfunkel, and a hilarious West-Side-Story-inspired dance number.
