Was he choking back a laugh or a tear?

I'm however am choking back a tear. It's been a good run and we still have the live shows to look forward to.

I also had to look this up for myself since I have studied int'l finance:
1.00 NZD = 0.571865 USD
1 USD = 1.74867 NZD

ooh my :( i'm so sad, this really looked like THE END of the series.

If it's true that there won't be another season, sadly i'd probably never hear again of the guys (except by reading this forum).

The tv series was the only hope we had to them to be known worldwide. Even if they do more music only albums, people won't understand the lyrics and probably won't mind to translate them. And the live shows will only be in the USA, so that won't work neither here.

I'm only talking as a "non english" speaker. I feel that sadly, without the series, the guys will loose the few fans that made here (and other non speaking english countries), and they will be forgoten :( .

Not me hopefully!! .

oh gawd....:tears:

Nice synopsis Atom. :thumb:

It's all Murray's fault. It was his idea to stage the musical and his idea to have his friends there. :hrmpf:

I'm so very sorry, my dear folking friends - I'm feeling a bit maudlin today. Every time I think I'm doing okay and happy that the boys did what they wanted to do and ended it all so nicely, I feel my lower lip wobble a little.

Trying to be brave. Trying to be optimistic. Trying not to snog the Bombay Sapphire.

I feel ya Turnip.

I'm on a rollercoaster about it. When I watched the ep I was so thrilled that it was so good that I didn't have time to reflect.

Then I reflected. :(

Then I cheered up thinking about all the happiness the show brought and how happy the characters were in the end. :D

Then I reflected on how it may parallel their real lives - they are going to go home after the tour and be happier away from the spotlight which means we won't be able to get our greedy little mitts on them. :cry: :tears:

I'm with you gals too....all I know is that they couldn't have come up with a more perfect ending to the show. I keep having to remind myself that while this may be "an" end, it's also a new beginning! :)

What a wonderful end to the show. Everything about it was just perfect. I'm so glad this forum is here so I can talk about it! Here's my favourite bits (This will go on for a while but I don't care, I need to get it out there!)-

Jemaine's grin as he was playing the lamp - cute!

When Eugene says he's going to give them one month to pay the rent and Bret says 'Can we choose which month?'

Jemaine in his dressing gown - I can't believe it's taken me till the last episode to realise how adorable he looks!

Jemaine's bedhead :lol:

Bret and Jemaine's sad faces when Murray does the role call. Again, cute!

The fact that the guy running the hotel is the guy who sold Murray the sawdust boxes in 'Drive By'. It's such a small Conchords world!

When they've just heard about the crazy murderer woman and Mel appears out of nowhere and Jemaine says 'Where's Doug?'

Mel saying 'whorehome' - wow!

Doug plays the harp!

When Mel pushes Jemaine's sheets down and stares at his crotch as Jemaine moves further down the bed (I'll be honest, I'd have done the same thing in her situation!).

'Petrov, Yelyena and Me' was amazing. One of my favourites of theirs anyway, so to see it on the show, and in the last episode was fab!

Murray got them mixed up with Luke Skywalker - how?!!

They were shepherds! :P :P :P

Greg rolling the space ship along the stage. "Yeah, no we won't be needing that, Greg...thanks though."

Mel wearing Jemaine's shirt. She looks so cute!

Mel -"This isn't about you."
Doug - "Well, actually it is."
Mel - "Don't tell them that, Doug. It's damaging!"

Bret saying 'I'm 32' - hahahahahaha!!!!!

When Murray tells Bret that he was on the ground for a few minutes and he says "Yeah I got really bored at that bit."

Jemaine walking across the stage with a sheep attached to his leg.

Dave as the Statue of Liberty - 'Forget about it!'

Bret's head stuck in the chair. I've never been so happy as when I saw that and heard Bret singing 'My head is stuck in this chair'.

Jemaine as a prostitute - 'Who will buy my body? Nobody...'

Jemaine - "We need more than ideas, we need money"
Bret - "Wait, wait, here him out"
I literally have no idea why that made me laugh so much.

Murray's face when he realises no one else is smiling.

Doug plays the harp - the harp!

Mel pushing Doug against the wall and snogging the face off him!

Jemaine fighting off a laugh - genius!

Murray - "Oh just a little bit of terrible news there..."

Illegal Immigrants, Jemaine says 'It was a good number'

They go back to New Zealand - awwww! What a perfect ending!

I've never been so attached to a TV show as much as I have with FotC. Jemaine and Bret truly are, in my opinion, the funniest and most gifted people on the planet. It's so hard to put into words just how fantastic this show is. I've been a fan of the guys since their BBC radio series, but it wasn't until that one day in August 2007 when I was bored at work, so I typed Flight of the Conchords into youtube to see what they were up to, and I watched the first episode, when I realised just how amazing they are. The comedy is so subtle, so clever, there's so much more to it than 'joke - laugh - joke - laugh...'. Nothing has cheered me up like this show can. And I've made some really great friends thanks to FotC. Nothing starts off a good conversation like B + J! I'm actually fighting back tears writing this. I'll just miss it so much!

So thank you Bret and Jemaine - I know it sounds cheesy, but I will always be so grateful for all of the laughs you've given me over the years. I can't wait to see what other stuff you guys come up with, whether it's alone or together. I love you!


And for the love of God, get your arses to the UK now!

Haha my sentiments exactly Sarah! They've provided me with countless hours of entertainment and now I need to see them live in the UK to top it all off :)

I laughed loads. It was really nice to see Petrov come back. Mel's sneaky looks at Jemiane and before that, Bret lying there helpless after being tucked in. STUBBIES. Murray's groping habits :wink: The sheep! Jemaines bed head and dressing gown. Mel wearing Jem's shirt :shock: major league jealousy.

And of course a teary eye. Can you pass me the kleenex SW??

You know, Murray said almost those exact words to B&J in his office. There were a few lines throughout the show that seemed to foreshadow the trajectory of the real FOTC.
