Return of Flight Of The Conchords(!)

Yeah! The Conchords are back! In all honesty, I’m not sure what to expect. I found it all really ha-ha-hee-hee on the radio, and I did enjoy the transfer to TV – though after a while, it felt all very … expected. The difficulty with comedy is, if you want to prop it up over a sustained period of time without it seeming stale, you either need some very good writing to inject some layers into the comedy, or you need some complexity to the characters (maybe even some character development). Unfortunately, Flight of the Conchords has been high on quirky charm and sticking with a winning (if predictable) joke. I’d love for this to be a great series, but to be so, I think they’ll really need to pull something new out of the bag.
