I think the immigration issues jokes have been beaten to death. If season 3 were to start, it would need to detract from the usual hijinks and start with something new.

Going to Canada would be a much better way to curb the immigration storylines.

You wouldn't be saying that because you live in Vancouver, eh? ;)

No, it's cause the cities have similarities that would translate well.

So if we return to the Mexico idea, they need to get the Latin Conchords on there as B & J's doppelgangers (awesome!) thus the perfect segue into "Stana". :lol:

Bret could put his "limbo skills" to work in this episode as well.


YES :rolls:
That's such a great idea and I love the little girl idea as well haha!

I don't like the idea of a new character replacing Mel because Kristen Schaal did such a great job playing role of the obsessed fan. It would be hard to fill her shoes. If they brought new characters on the show, they would have to give them entirely different roles.

Yes, and then they could film it at the Moonlight Rollerway in Glendale and invite me! :D J/K.

No seriously, HBO people-If S3 ever happens and you guys need extras, contact me. I will work for free and be totally professional, I swear!

The roller skating idea sounds much too similar to a promo video they did for Sub Pop.

But I'm loving the idea of an 11 year old girl and Mel fighting over one of them.

I could see them harassing each other with useless trivia about the guys,

"Well did you know about Bret's mole on the small of his back!?" *shot to Bret making "WTF" face*
"Pfft, I knew about that before you were alive - what about Jemaine's shoe lifts? Did you know about those?"
"Oh please, everyone knows about that" *shot to Jemaine looking down, pouting in embarrassment/disbelief*

:roll2: Hilarius! "I knew about that before you were alive" :rolls: Bret's mole!!! :clap: You should be a writer!

vmh: Yeah, I saw that video... see - they already have the skating skills required! OK so they digitally enhanced a few shots, but I'll bet they could pull it off. P.S. How kind of you to offer your services... :D

:rolls: I can actually see that happening haha!
Mel and a little 11 year old duking it out to see who knows the guys more.
Vmh I agree about bringing in a new character replacing Mel. It wouldn't really be the same and Kristen did a great job playing her in the last 2 seasons so it would be kinda weird if a brand new fan came and replaced Mel.

I could throw my 2 cents in on the reality of the immigration plots. (Not that anyone in TV cares about reality.) But what the heck...

Probably would make more sense for the guys to go to Canada and then come across the border there, since it is not enforced as much as Mexico. Although I agree the Mexico border might be more funny, being more of a challenge, and possibly somewhere throwing in a "Stana" song. I always kind of imagined Dave being the coyote, like someone mentioned in another thread. He thinks he knows exactly what he's doing, and decides to hide the boys in a compartment of a truck, while he and Murray ride in the front (Dave being a U.S. citizen and Murray having his diplomatic visa.) But the truck that Dave chooses turns out to be something that draws a lot of attention, the camera pans out and I'm imagining something like the Oscar Meyer Weiner truck or something as they drive up to the border check point.

The idea of them trying to marry Americans that turn out to be Canadians could be funny too! Unfortunately (reality check) even if they were to marry Americans it wouldn't help them get a green card if they came across the border illegally (At least not since 2000) However, they could have used that plot as a defense to deportation in the last episode of season 2, since at that time their last entry was presumably legal.

Anyway, these are all good and fun ideas, and I love the one about having it in NZ for a little while. If they do have a season 3, I also think they should bring Coco back as Bret's girlfriend somewhere, and poor Jemaine will have to finally get a decent girl.

Forget crossing the border, staying in Canada is a good alternative...
