I was thinking about this a little. Say they were doing an entirely new live show they would write about what, 10 songs for it? And then the material in between which is often improvised, but I'd think they would always have their set pieces of banter as it were.
Would take them a few months to cobble together the workings of a live show... Say they do another 12 episodes, then I'd imagine it'd be about that long. If they do a longer season (o please no, not the 22 episodes flog this horse to death sitcom syndrome), then it'd take longer. Less episodes (6 is always good
) would make for it being tighter, better plotlines and the chances are the songs would be the better ones, if taken from a larger pool of songs, rather than having some mediocre ones used in the odd episode (as happened in this series).
I certainly hope they don't bring in other writers for the songs. That'd be not good.
My other thought was they are possibly on Conchords burn out atm. I mean really, its been a long year and its still going. I'm wondering how they will get inspired to go back home and knuckle down to a whole new set of songs to build a new series round or a new series outline and having to write songs to fit it. The Conchords for Bret and Jemaine seems to have become what they always said they never wanted it to be... a full time project. However, I am also remembering they chose this second season, so that tells me they are ok with it.
Of course, it may be they don't do anything for 6 months and have a decent break and do other stuff. Then come back fresh and get to work and a new series comes out the end of 2008. But I've read about a possible tour sometime and then there is the album to promote (if they decide to).
I dunno, just all thoughts that crossed my mind
