Flight of the Conchords

I wrote an upset rant about that fucking boob project bullshit earlier today, which I privatised almost immediately when I realised I didn't actually want to talk about all the reasons it upset me, and that instead I wanted to talk about Flight of the Conchords!

This is my first viewing of FotC (shameful really. Not only are they my fellow kiwis, I have met Jermaine! True Story: about ten or so years ago my best friend Kirsten and I partied with him and some of his friends on New Year's Eve and Kirsten spent a good amount of time that night making out with him. HA! I won't talk about who I made out with because it's deeply embarrassing, but I think this makes me pretty cool by proxy anyway. Hi Kirsten! Get an LJ already!)

Obviously I love this show like pie, but I think the last ep I watched -- "Bowie" -- is my favourite because it made me laugh so hard I was actually in quite a lot of pain.

First of all, the boys' biggest fan, Mel, SLASHES THEM, which I of course find delightful. It's always nice to be represented on telly!

But then when Jermaine sang Bret the truly, truly gay song, "Bret You've Got It Going On," I lost my mind:

Bret, you got it going on.
The ladies will get to know your sexuality when they get to know your personality.
I said, Bret, you got it going on.
Not in a gay way, just in a "hey mate, I wanted to say that you're looking okay, mate."
Why can't a heterosexual guy,
Tell a heterosexual guy that he thinks his booty is fly?


ETA: Oh yes, I also watched the pilot of "Mad Men", which I thought was excellent. I was all, WHO THE HELL IS THAT GUY AND WHY IS HE SO FAMILIAR. And then it turned out that it's Connor from Angel! Except MUCH less annoying. Thanks for the rec zephyr9 and fleegull!
