No problem. But I only found that link when I asked a very nice lady named Amily on Funny or Die who was handing out links to us Brits, Canadians, Aussies and Kiwis who wanted a bit of Conchord action early. So yeah... thank her...

General feedback I've been hearing about the episode is that it is brilliant... but some have been put off by an obvious increase in the budget of the music videos.

Just a reminder that there is now a thread devoted specifically to discussion of Season Two. For the sake of possible spoilers, please discuss the actual episode there. Thanks!

The postman arrived with it early in the morning, and I went out to Regent's Park with a blanket to lie on while I devoured it. But instead of opening it and jumping straight in, I just sat there, crossed-legged with the book in my lap until my legs went numb.


Oh, I was totally the same way! Got all dressed up in my Hogwarts uniform (yes, I have one, feel free to laugh at me, I don't care :P ) went to the bookstore for a midnight release party, got my book, and snuck out the store with it hidden in my robes (cause I was one of the first and there was a pretty angry looking mob outside). I read the first chapter that night when I got home and couldn't move myself to read any more the next day... And then when I started I really limited myself to 2 chapters a day... I just sooo didn't want it to end.

However, I have no choice in the new episode... Stupid work computers... I must wait until I get home tonight... :cry:

My reaction to waiting ALL DAY THROUGH SCHOOL to find it didn't work went something like this: *Ahem*

I posted this on another thread, but non-US folks should use a proxy in order to watch it on FunnyorDie. The following are instructions for hulu but they could probably be applicable for any site: http://lifehacker.com/5056941/how-to-watch-videos-on-hulu-from-anywhere

I'm so glad you folks are able to enjoy the episode along with us US folk!! :yay:

I didn't even think of waiting - all I thought of all morning was, "You can wait til noon."
And we'll discuss the outcome of the wait on the proper thread. :halo:

Only 3 hours wait left for me... I know I can at least access the site on my school computer (which I couldn't do at the office), but it doesn't have any sound and it's pretty much pointless to watch it without sound... But soon I shall be able to end this horrid day with something (hopefully) awesome!

I'm happy it works. Someone should post a big bulletin so all the non-US folks can watch it now.

I'm waiting for the episode to load slowly, very slowly.

Me too coz I'm definitely interested in what some of our Brit girls (and others) make of it and I'm glad they can join in the discussion.

Well there I was having a lovely, leisurely morning, doing online banking and other mundane things when I decided to check the FOTC MySpace and saw that some people were already commenting on the new ep so I went over to Funnyordie and it was there - this was about 10:00 am & I think it had already been there for awhile. I waited and fussed and decided I wouldn't watch it until tonight but then I gave in.

It went up at pacific zone midnight last night... Which was like 3am here on the east coast... At least that's what the countdown on FOD insinuated... I really really really seriously debated staying up to watch it but I decided that being functional at work was just barely slightly more important... :roll:

I think I was still catching up on e-mail at 2:30 - I could've waited til 3. :roll: :goodnight:

I guess I'm kinda glad I thought it was noon, so I was able to be a human today - a happy human at that!!! :nod:

I've noticed you often post in the wee hours Nancy. Are you a night owl?

I thought it did at one time say that it would begin at noon.

Well I tried to get the thing to work the way halokiti said but it won't work for me. And I just haven't got time to look into it much at the moment, so I'm going to wait and steer clear of the episode convos... :|
Never mind, there's still Christmas to look forward to!!
