Flight of the Conchords....

After last weeks disappointing Sopranos finale (that's what happens when you let the executive: produce, write, and direct a show), HBO needed to come back with a good showing.

This week Flight of the Chochords begins (tonight). After getting back into the Sopranos recently, in time for the lead up to the finale, I've been hit with a lot of HBO's hype for FotC and John from Cincinnati. FotC looks interesting, John from Cincinnati looks like complete crap. I could be wrong, and I did not watch the first episode, so there is a small margin of error present for that show. But after not being able to get into either Deadwood or Rome, and not having given Big Love a chance, I thought there was little hope for JfC.

I just finished watching the first episode of Flight of the Conchords, and while I wasn't blown out of the water, it was funny enough that I'm going to continue to give the show a shot. There were a few musical numbers in the first episode, during which I found myself asking "are these guys just a folksy Tenacious D?" I hope to get the answer to that in the coming episodes. As for now, check out the first episode; I think that you'll find it worth your time.

Certainly a lot more worthy of your time than the Sopranos finale.
