Eat. Sleep. Folk.|Born To Folk!
Meet Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie -- a.k.a. Flight of the Conchords. They may be "New Zealand's 4th Most Popular Folk Parody Duo," but now they're in a strange new world -- New York City -- and determined to conquer America one fan at a time... literally! This 2-disc set feature all 12 episodes from The Complete First Season of the acclaimed HBO series. Watch as our heroes contend with unrequited love, bohemian parties, inept criminals and their (single) obsessed fan (Kristen Schaal), breaking into song as they clumsily attempt to break into the New York scene.

Editor's Note
Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie, better known as FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS, have moved from New Zealand to Brooklyn, New York, in an attempt to make it big in the United States. Unfortunately their mix of "digi-bongo-rap-comedy-folk" doesn't sit well with an American audience, and their hilariously incompetent band manager, Murray, is not helping the situation. THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON contains 12 episodes including "Bret Gives up the Dream," "What Goes on Tour," "New Fans," "The Actor," and "The Third Conchords."

Professional Reviews

Uncut
4 stars out of 5 -- "[With whip-smart musical numbers....The duo's deadpan demeanour in the face of spectacular lack of success wins through." 01/01/2008 p.131

Variety 7 of 10
At first, this New Zealand-imported tandem seems like any of the cut-rate slacker comedies that overpopulate Comedy Central -- until they burst into song and madcap lunacy ensues. Hardly a great show, those eclectic musical numbers nevertheless yield some extremely clever moments, and if nothing else, there aren't many places you can hear a love song with lyrics like, "You're so beautiful ... Like a high-class prostitute ... You could be a part-time model"...Still, like a review that once referred to "Jaws" as "a thriller at sea and a bore ashore," "Flight" is pretty much a snooze until the music starts, at which point the show kicks up into something quite weird and occasionally wonderful...Even then, this is a slight diversion, aimed toward that younger quadrant of potential subscribers that HBO chased after by signing a multifaceted deal with Dane Cook, the inexplicably popular comic who plays arenas with his club-sized act...Sure, the show isn't much to look at, but thanks to those musicvideos, there are moments when it sounds like a gem. - Brian Lowry
