Ugh.....what a tease..... to play the tune of Bus Driver Song, during the closing credits....to have a Paula character and a bus driver....and NO BUS DRIVER SONG.....we were definitely robbed of a great song! :x

Agreed. It was awesome, but the whole episode I was telling my less Conchords educated peers, "Hey it's gonna have Bus Driver's Song in it; there's Paula; there's a bus..." AND THEN THERE WASN'T.
Why do they torture me?!

Oh the whole way through that ep with the teasing: Paula, Paula's address, the bus!!! I thought for sure they were going to do Bus Driver's Song! Even up to when the music started playing over the credits I thought 'They're gonna do it!' And then --- they didn't do it... :sosad:

But the rest of the show was good. When they ran out of hair gel... :roll2: Jemaine was looking seriously scruffy there...

Still majorly crushing on Emo-Bret. Image

Is it my imagination, or are the episodes getting shorter? I looked on my cable box and noticed the show ended at 9:25, I know others have gone to :28 minutes or so, they must have edited something out. I think it could have been a minute or two longer, or at least have had a small picture box of some scene during the credits.

I didn't even recognize that that was Xena:Warrior Princess as Paula. Didn't dawn on me until the credits...........the credits that should have included a full blown song, a wonderful, beautiful song!

Still feeling robbed, MAJORLY ROBBED! :cross:

Yeah... They definately seem to be getting shorter... The 2nd song must have been cut out. That's the only logical explanation... I mean, why would the redo the song, just to run for 30 seconds over the credits? There's a full blown version of it out there somewhere, I'm sure of it... Hopefully it'll make the dvd. :crosses fingers:

It took me until the PM was driving the bus, and finally when he called out "Paula?" before the lightbulb when on, but it was cool that they just did a neat non-vocal riff on the tune. I knew the song was way too long to be included. I would have liked it to be included, but it didn't spoil the episode for me.

But what about the episode itself? Taika did a great job:
Murray saying Mel "requested that she can't come today" "Most of the audience are shopping bags" :roll2:

On Murray's office building directory: Besides the usual offices, "Cremation services"

The concept of New Zealandtown, Gary the sheep

Bret's curl, Jemaine's side sweep! :rolls: :roll2: :bounce:

In "Posing", Bret's long punk hair! :thumb:
Mel's do!

From the BBC show, "They came, they saw, they Conchord"

The different ways both guys said "whatever" :lol:

The Maori village

Dangerous throwing of empty hair gel jar

This week's poster: "New Zealand like Scotland but further"

"I can't go out there - not without gel!" :roll2:

I noticed the new cat poster on their wall - so huge!

New Zealandtown bus tour - all two seconds of it :rolls:

Mel in their apartment - they seemed like addicts needing a fix looking through her purse for mousse or gel - hysterical! :roll2:

Bret finding his sock in Mel's bag!

The glue bit - Jemaine and the pillow, Bret with his hand

This ep didn't start until 10:01 and did end early, sad to say :(

As always, lots more viewings needed for this one, but I really liked this one, and all the different hairstyles the guys came up with! :thumb:

upon 2nd review... i'm totally taken aback by the very convincing "acting" of the guys
during their jonesin for more hair gel. i've been around addicts - they were definitely close to reality on this one. almost too close.

can i get a shout out for next week's episode?
looks like it's going to be quite F r E a K y...... :yawinkle:

:shock: Tease yes, absof#&kinglutely!

I was so excited when I heard Paula and even more so when Murray said he hired a tour bus. All I kept thinking was "finally- they've managed to fit in one of my favorite songs." I just wanted to be able to thank Takia for writing it in....
Then.......NOTHING!!!!! :waiting:
What a flipping tease. 30 minutes of tease then they just dropped us. TURKEYS!!!! :cross:
I'm feeling that feeling that makes you go "grrrrrrr".

I really liked the hair gel bit but I will go on the record as saying because of the tremendous letdown, this is, in the words of the comic book guy- The Worst Episode EVER!!! :hrmpf:

Bret, Bret, Bret, Bret, Bret, Bret, Bret, Bret.

His penguin pajamas!
Facial expressions!
"Whateva's"

I laughed like a total loon throughout this entire episode.

I was holding my stomach when they threw the jar at each other.

And Mel..."I don't even know you guys anymore!"

This episode was utterly fantastic. I've already rewatched it 3 times. "New Zealand...like Scotland but further"

I thought this was a great episode! Are you sure you guys aren't overlooking the hilarious-ness due to the fact that The Bus Driver Song wasn't in it? I mean, it would be sad if that completely ruined the episode for you.
Like someone said earlier, it's a long song and would be hard to fit in.. Much like Jenny. I'm just glad they gave the more hardcore fans something extra to laugh at. I have a friend who doesn't know The Bus Driver Song so the joke was missed on her.

I haven't heard anyone mention Fashion is Danger yet. I loved it! Maybe you have to be well-versed in 80's electro music to fully appreciate it, but the guys nailed it.

My rating for NewZealandTown: 9/10

P.S. I was happy to see Taika wrote and directed this one. I like that guy.

OK, I don't know what it is but I'm sooo not into the PM character. I think that the hair gel stuff was hilarious and different heair do's and hahahahaha "Whatever" hahahaha that was really funny. But the whole storyline with the PM and NewZealnd town, I just wasn't into it. I think that's what I didn't like about the last episode too.
