Happy Belated Birthday #2 to Bret McKenzie of "Flight of the Conchords"

So much birthday goodness yesterday we couldn't get it all in!  We also wish a big Flaming Nose Happy Birthday (one day late) to the talented and charming Bret McKenzie, one half of the brilliantly hilarious comedy/music duo Flight of the Conchords, alongside Jemaine Clement, and also Best Song Oscar winner for his work on the recent The Muppets movie.  Bret turned 37 yesterday!

We still miss HBO's delightful two-season 22-episode run of Flight of the Conchords, though thankfully the show is available on HBO Go and DVD and probably all sorts of other ways.  The show's initial run on HBO was from 2007 - 2009.  Five years ago??!!

Somehow the fact that Flight of the Conchords had also done a BBC Radio comedy series had eluded me, but they did in 2005!  All of the episodes seem to be available on YouTube for listening -- great news!

The notion of a Flight of the Conchords movie or additional series has been discussed for years, but no concrete plans appear to be on the table at this time.  We're not the only ones who miss Flight of the Conchords; BuzzFeed posted their great 20 reasons why they miss them in a posting from September of '13, available by clicking here.

So many great bits from Flight of the Conchords' TV show to remember and love; here are just a few more for your enjoyment, perhaps some of the less well-known songs yet delightful nonetheless!

Flight of the Conchords, Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie will always be on our list of all-time Flaming Nose Favorites!
