Flight of the Conchords – Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros

Flight of the Conchords – Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros (Chords)

I thought I’d kick of 2008 with a series of posts on a random selection of my favourite things and notable events from 2007.

My viewing habits would suggest that Heroes was my favourite TV show of last year. I got insanely addicted to it; I became a Heroes junkie. As soon as the first series finished over here, I had to start torrenting the second series to get my fix. Since the writers strike killed off the second series and left me with nothing to watch but dead babies crawling across the ceiling, I’ve found myself in the worrying position of agreeing with Margaret Thatcher’s opinions on strike breaking. But I’m not sure I even like the show. It’s overacted, the dialogue is overblown (and often hilariously expositional) and there are gaping plot-holes all over the place. Still, can’t wait for Volume 3.

Much more satisfying was Flight of the Conchords. Who needs GCI when you’ve got a floating David Bowie? As well as being understated, lovable and hilarious, there was a ukulele connection.

I’ve already tabbed out the show’s uke song Mermaids, so here’s Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros.
