Watching it in HD is amazing. I don't see how I can ever go back now.

I also thought that Bret looked really thin in that episode. Beautiful, charming, and loveable (as always), but very thin.

I loved this episode. It was so goofy and charmingly sweet.

Favorite moments: The man hiding in the cupboard, Bret saying he spent most of the day in the ceiling, Murray dancing, Jemaine at the party, the boy kicking Bret and Bret kicks him back, Bret's honesty when the police arrive at the door, Jemaine's responses to Mel about the painting,
a singing gig at the library with Mel entranced, Dave bored, and Murray taking notes
Bret's no to Murray's yes.

Love it.

Hurt feelings is my favorite song, especially Bret's singing on the reprise. I also loved that during the hurt feelings video the kitchen appliances and movie theatre setting were like something out of a cartoon.

I knew he looked familiar!! But for the life of me, I couldn't place him...

The 9:00 was in HD again last night. Tis freakin amazing. I had no idea. Jemaine's face looks quite different and you can see the real color of his eyes. And everyone looked thinner.

Some highlights:

Murray's dancing and facial expressions in the dance sequence.

Jemaine getting free cheese (was this episode written by Taika, perchance?)

I was kind of sad at the end of the hurt feelings montage with a tear rolling down Murray's face then when they got up and Jemaine thanked Murray for taking him to the party ...*sniffle* how I wanted to snuggle them both.

Jemaine getting can attacked and slapped by the guy in the cupboard.

*snapping fingers* Stay cool Bret...you'll regret if you mess with Bret from the Tough Brets!

Watched it again last night...I wanted to give big bear hugs to every single one of them during Hurt Feelings. It was just so goofy and sweet....and it's nice to see that with each episode, the writing and pacing seems tighter and that they all click even better as a cast. I still think Stay Cool was my favorite part....and I love Angry Bret - I lost it when he kicked that little kid. :lol:

I just watched this about 10 times in a row.

I like when Bret pounds on the car. I think I have a crush on Johnny Boy and the foxy Aussie.

I can't make out the first part of what the Australians are singing.

Like most people, I thought this one was ever-so-slightly uneven. There were some truly wonderful parts, but there were also moments that, in truth, fell distinctly flat. That "Mu...rray" bit and the gag about Greg and the intercom was seriously belaboured, like a Saturday Night Live sketch that forgets that jokes sometimes resonate more if you kick them less. But those moments were so noticeable because the Conchords are generally absolute masters at not telegraphing jokes or allowing them to go stale. They usually just breeze past the mind-blowingly funny bits, and sometimes it's not till days later that you realise how pant-wettingly absurd they were.

Like Hurt Feelings. Which was brilliant. Oh my god, those thrones. Bouncing up and down on those thrones. And the rapturously low, spread-legged camera shots? HLY SHT. I think all the dogs in my neighbourhood sat up for a moment and swivelled their ears worriedly at that point. And then resignedly sighed, "Oh. It's just Turnip. Squealing over hilariously objectified Kiwis again." And then lay back down and dreamed of snausages.

I also adored that incredible look of frustrated outrage on Bret's face as he petulantly cried, "Get me a small man's wetsuit!," followed shortly after by a pained "Please."

Amazing. As was the line, "Were you ever called "homo", 'cause at school you took drama?" Coming from a guy whose mum made him take ballet lessons as a kid, I suspect that laugh came from Bret's long years of rueful experience in school hallways. :rolls: Bless! Although as a friend of his once recalled, Bret eventually "discovered the fringe benefits of being outnumbered by females." :yawinkle: LOVE. IT.

And how fabulous was that fleeting moment of Alpha Male Bret when he furiously smacked the roof of the car, with his jaw locked and eyes like flaming daggers? Oh my! Oh I do declare! I feel a little faint! **Eyelash flutter flutter flutter.** [/Scarlett O'Hara]

Aww man! Now I really can't wait for sister and nephew to move so I can get my HD tv... :waiting:

But um, I've only gotten to watch it once. :oops: I thought the scene where everyone attacked Jemaine was hilarious! And I now also sing "I've got hurt feelings, I've got hurt feelings" every time someone hurts my feelings.

Can anyone remember the names of the real rappers who I'm pretty sure were the inspiration for the bit in the video when the guys are both wearing powdered wigs? I remember some rappers doing that in a video or something, I just can't remember who. Biz Markie or someone, maybe?

I don't think anyone's yet mentioned Mel's fan art - it was based on real fan art from the FOTC MySpace:

Did anybody else shed a tear or two with Mel? I did. Hurt Feelings is one of those songs that can be funny, but it's also rather melancholy at the same time. I like it a lot.

Boy, they really had the Australians look like a$$holes. Intentional? Probably!

I didn't love the Hurt Feelings song though it was catchy. I didn't feel bad for Mel. For as much as I loved her in The New Cup I found her quite grating in this one. Like I said I felt bad for Murray though.

Ah the Australians weren't that bad, they were just pullin yr tit mate.

That is too funny they based that on real fan art. I am so very glad I mostly paint aliens on the toilet and haven't attempted fan art yet lol. I liked this episode, but didn't love it. It's hard to compete with last weeks. Once it gets some distance I may try watching it again to see if I like it better.

I want HD now. I didn't think there's that much difference and figured my tv from the 1980's is just fine. But, after reading these posts...I'm finding myself calculating how many extra dogs I need to groom each day to get HD lol.
