Season One of HBO's Flight of the Conchords was framed around songs the show's titular New Zealand comedy/folk duo spent years perfecting. The music was the strongest part of a great show...and often got shoehorned into episodes. (Hey, you fit a song about a racist dragon into a show about New York musicians.) FotC had to write mostly new music this time around, so Season Two's songs and plots fit together more organically, but the musical numbers aren't as good. Nonetheless, FotC is still odd, and wonderful, and Season Two let fantastically deadpan supporting characters---like Murray's co-worker Greg and Mel's husband Doug--shine, like sad, put-upon diamonds.
