Conchords

Has anyone been watching the Flight of the Conchords on BBC4? I didn't much like the look of it at first, but it's now my favourite show. They have a nice line in underplayed, self-deprecating humour - see this little medley of jokes at the expense of New Zealand.



It's all quite gentle too - a nice break from cynicism. (Tuesdays, 9.30pm.)

That's quite good. I'm mailing the link to my work's resident Kiwi...

Those are great - funny but also charmingly undemonstrative, which is a nice change from all the other noise and hysteria. I've been hearing good things about the show from a couple of sources. I'll have to check it out.
