But Who Likes To Rock The Party isn't really a song. Like the radio show where they had a couple of songs they 'performed' at gigs and stuff within the storyline, it is what I consider not a proper Conchords song, only used for effect within the show, like Brets Rap.

I can't see Hotties or Nothin Wrong working within an episode. Bus Drivers has been used. And again, Robots was used already. I don't see going back and revisiting those is really needed.

I think them using ALL thier back catolgue is unrealistic. And unnecessary. They are talented guys working with talented people, they are more than capable of coming up with new material if they do decide to go ahead with any more episodes.

Nope.

I don't mind them not making a third season. I am not desperate for them to do more. However if they do go ahead with a 3rd season I'd like to see only 6 episodes, to give them the opportunity to have decent plots and story and be able to write good songs for each episode.

And for them to steer away from romance based plots. I like when they go off the track from that plotline.

I liked season 2 far more than season 1. Was much funnier, acting was better and most of the songs worked well also. Maybe I am not in the majority with the songs, but I always put it down to knowing most of the S1 songs so well from over the years I just didn't enjoy as much as the newer stuff in S2.

I like Duncan Sarkies writing episodes. His stuff = goodness. I enjoy the JB directed episodes most (I put this down to being familiar with and liking his other work over the years) and also liked the Gondry directed episode, for the genius of the Carol Brown video more than anything. When JB directs I feel he has an understanding of the Conchords on camera more so than anyone else directing them. I find I laugh more watching the episodes he directs also. I struggle with the Paul Simm episodes a little more. I don't have time to explain why now. I remember in S1 cringing watching What Goes On Tour and not really enjoying that much. S2 episode was better of course :lol:

Ummm yeah back to cleaning the kitchen before hubby and son arrive home.

Sherry, I have to agree with you on a lot of that.
Season 2 to me was a little more uneven, but when they hit it, it was amazing.
I loved Taika's New Zealand themed episodes, and A New Cup/Tough Brets/Unnatural Love are my three favorite episodes. Period. (It bounces between the three).

I agree with Sherry. I think the guys are more than capable of pulling it off. They are incredibly talented. I also agree that maybe the seasons should be shorter OR there should be more time between seasons to let them write. It's a huge undertaking and I know I couldn't do it. I don't think the quality of season two was less than that of season one, I just think it was different. New songs, stories, etc. And the more I watched season two, the more the songs and episodes grew on me. When usually with whatever I'm watching I get sick of it or once is enough, I found myself going back and re-watching the episodes over and over on HBO OnDemand.

I really hope you're being sarcastic, or quite a few people on the board are going to be a little upset by this.

I think the money fights and the omnichord dealers kind of hint at that.
And if not, this reads like a LOLcat wrote it. And LOLcats make me laugh. Silly things that they are.
:D

I haven't seen all of Season 2, sort of saving myself for the DVD....

Exactly like the poll said, I don't mind if the boys make another series, but only if they have some good ideas and actually WANT to do it.

I mean forcing them to make another series could be bad....look at The Mighty Boosh....

I think it's up to the boys. I really don't mind either way, and I'm patiently awaiting the release of the season 2 DVD.
They are definitely talented enough to pull it off, though. :]
And lately Jem has been very busy with movie productions, which must tire him out. Our kiwi boys are such hard workers. <3

I voted the not unless option but I'm leaning personally more towards no. Don't get me wrong I'd watch and enjoy the snot out of it if they did a third season and I'm sure it would be great if it did come back. But, truly it feels finished to me and I don't feel a real thirst for more. I'd love to see more of them in concert. That's about it though. I'm happy with what they have given me as far as the tv part goes. I'm sure there are ways to come back from such a nice finale if they wanted to, but it's very important to me that they want to. I've had jobs just for the money and even if HBO paid them every last penny they are worth (and what they do is worth a lot!) if they don't want to do it, then it's not worth it. Simple.

See I go back n forth. Most days honestly I feel like as long as I stay connected to their new projects I won't mind there being no more FOTC the tv series. I think that is what I fret about the most, losing touch with them. :?

S2 songs were great...(except Angels, that song creeps me out..sorry) they really did seem more comfortable. I loved S1 too. :)

TBH I can't wait to see what they will do next :lol:

But I did vote after they do some stuff only because there wasn't an:" Im on the fence most days and go back n forth because I really love them and hope they don't disappear forever and hope that someday they will tour again as FOTC, choice." :shock:

Im only human and I love them in FOTC setting AND separately as Jemaine Clement and Bret Mckenzie.. :heart:

I went for I hope so, after they've done some other stuff. But really, what I would like most is for them to do a couple of shows over here. I'm selfish, yis. Darn our tiny island being so far away.

I don't want a third season for a number of reasons, which puts me in the minority. As usual. :)

And now the image of Bret and Jemaine hitting each other with giant money bags with $ signs on them is now in my head...
