    Dunno if anyone's caught this TV show, but I quite enjoyed it. It's available as a free podcast on iTunes.

    Bit of a bump. I just started watching this (I saw a mini 'concert' thing on BBC4 before the series starts proper) and on the basis of that ended up downloading a few episodes (watched the first 3 now).

    Its ruddy bloody great, far better than I was expecting. Its quite difficult to describe, at times its like The Office mixed with a musical, only not so much cringe worthy as very gently amusing. The 'tunes' are generally hilarious, and even catchy at some points.

    Anyone else out there watching this?

    Glad someone else is into this. Really is very good but I'm afraid the general premise and the fact its on BBC 4 will limit its audience massively. I cannot, however, stop singing the 'BInary solo' at the end of the first episode to myself. My friends thought I was a nutter down the pub.

    These are pretty popular in the US. I've seen them on Comcast On Demand years ago, really decent stuff IIRC.

    New Zealanders in being funny shocker.

    I plan on watching some episodes the next time I get HBO free for a weekend.

    Caught this last night after the mini-concert thing from last week and I really liked it.

    Funnily enough, I also caught myself watching screenwipe after it. Never seen it before and was thoroughly amused by the Day to Day / Armando Ianucci type show.

    There was a superb Radio 2 version of this a while back, with Rob Brydon narrating in a rockumentary style. It turned up on UKnova, and it's definitely worth hunting down.

    It was top stuff, with a few good cameos, and even made Jimmy Carr sound good as a fan who wanted them to sleep with his girlfriend.

    "You could be a part-time model,
    Although you'd probably have to keep your day job."

    I thought it was good, but the social comedy in between the songs wasn't quite as strong as the songs. Still ace, and I'll be watching the rest and keeping an eye out for an album.

    "It's not part of the foreplay but it's still very important."

    Saw an advert for them the other day saying their TV show is coming to BBC Four for any non-downloading interestees.

    I'm going to have to try this again and sit through the songs this time. I watched two episodes and it was ok but i had to fast forward when they started singing so i think i may have missed out on some plot in the song as i wasn't that impressed with it really.

    Everyone else seems to rave about it so there's something there.

    There's no plot in the songs, but the plot is there only for the songs. If you missed them you missed the whole point.

    Ahhh, the songs are the point, oh ok. The songs didn't do anything for me but i'll give it another go over the weekend, see if i'm in a better mood for them.

    Go to Youtube and do a Flight of the Conchords search and you can see and hear some very funny performances, especially their HBO One Night Stand show from a few years back.

    'Tis a very good show - a bit too much like The Office at times (particularly Murray), but most amusing and I will have a looky for the clips on YouTube when I get home tonight.

    Is it wrong that I have a thing for Mel?

    She was on Buzzcocks the other week and looked quite spiffing.

    Watched the first one last night via means, barely raised a titter.

    Not for me, methinks.

    Stick with it, first one is the weakest in a way, as it's setting up the style, it really gets going pretty quick, I 've even caught the missus having a laugh at it a few times.*
