Our Boys Will Be Back!

HBO has announced a renewal for The Flaming Nose's favorite fellas from New Zealand! Flight of the Conchords has been picked up for a second season, and at least Jane and I couldn't be happier!

I think we're both in love with Jemaine Clement -- he has that certain strange gruff but sexy quality that has always attracted us, at least hypothetically -- but his musical and comedic partner Bret McKenzie couldn't be cuter, and they are both funny as hell. And their manager Murray, played by Rhys Darby, is an extremely earnest and likable wannabe, working hard to put his boys on the map.

Comedy is an intensely personal taste, of course, and maybe Flight of the Conchords will leave you cold, but if it hits your spot, you will absolutely love it. HBO runs it all over the place so check out the links on the two previous posts about the show and check it out!

Also, HBO announced a renewal of its equally delightful Entourage for its fifth season, another reason to celebrate. If you were a fan of HBO's other new show, John from Cincinnati, well, condolences from The Nose, because that's been cancelled. HBO's obviously searching for a dramatic show with the potential to become another Sopranos , and that won't be easy.

But thanks to them for Flight of the Conchords!

Horray!!! I was watching Bret and Jermaine do a live version of "David Bowie is in Space" on YouTube and laughing my butt off and then I clicked on the Nose to see this EXCELLENT news! I can't think of any new show that I've ever enjoyed more than FOTC and it weirdly sticks with you throughout the week. I find myself singing little bits of the songs. Or thinking about something Jermaine said. I'm probably thinking about Jermaine a little bit too much. I am so glad HBO has picked it up for another season.

Hi Lisa,

Hey, I'll join you and Jane in a big "Hooray!" for the return of FOTC on HBO. Can't wait! It's going to be a long wait until 2009, though. But at least they are returning...I probably should just be happy with that. :-)

I love your blog, btw! Thanks for letting me know about it.
