Flight of The Conchords Rolling Stone snippet

Geekgeekgeekgeekgeekgeekgeek You have to read it to appreciate true geekdom. I am a mere sproutling in comparison :p

June 2007

Brian Logan, Guardian writer and long time Conchords fan wrote an article about how well the Conchords have done since their days gigging in a cave.

Is this article saying the Conchords are ugly? Nerdy? OK, so maybe the guys are not trying to look hot in their series, but blimey, women all over seem to be swooning over them and finding them attractive and telling them so. The not trying thing seems to be having a reverse effect on the ladies out there ;)

IGN have glowing reviews for the first two episodes of the Conchords show. Read the Sally review and Bret Gives Up The Dream has a review of the Conchords TV show.

Rebecca Barry over at NZ Herald writes about the Conchords. I won't mention how some TV stations/networks over in New Zealand were a bit dumb and passed up on the Conchords in years gone past. Oooops, I guess I just did. Ah well, the HBO show has been picked up by Prime (who beat TV3 to it) and will air there later this year. Lets hope the Conchords overseas success story opens the door to more home grown comedy on TV in New Zealand. Pay attention TV bigwigs! - You may not have good taste but 1.5 million TV viewing Americans and goodness knows how many Kiwi, Brits and <insert long list of countries this site has had hits from here> can't be wrong!

The NZ Herald reports mixed reviews from the US critics. Chortle UK reports more of the same.

A couple of Conchords HBO reviews, San Francisco Chronicle liked, Reuters Hollywood Reporter didn't.
