I'm sorry if this has already been posted, but here's Rhys interviewed by somebody called Rove McManus. Worth watching!

Ooops... :oops: Well, I'm known to be pretty absent-minded and unattentive in real life as well... I promise I'll be more careful next time around, though!

Rhys Darby was on Thank God You're Here tonight.

I taped it, but since it takes like ten years for me to upload, I'll only do it if no one else does in the next 24 hours or so. :D

Does that make me sound like I'm holding it hostage? I'm just trying to be... economical?

I don't blame you if the upload is a pain. It's good to know we can see it if no one else puts it up. Thanks! :)

Ok, this video is back in the middle of this thread but it was new to me so I thought there might be others who hadn't ever seen it either. It's a Nike ad Rhys did with Roger Federer a year or so ago and it's pretty great: :D

Short interview with Rhys:
Quote:
Rhys: Conchords had too many songs

Image
pa.press.net

Rhys Darby thinks Flight Of The Conchords' Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement may have "signed their own death warrant" by writing three songs per episode.

The hit show, which follows Kiwis Bret and Jemaine as they try to make it as musicians in New York, has ground to a halt after its second series.

Rhys, who plays the band's good-natured manager Murray, said he didn't think it was "the end of the end" but that the boys may have exhausted themselves with so much writing.

He said: "The fact they had to pull together 20 new songs (for the second series), that was the pressure. Not that they didn't enjoy it, but just that as a musician, you don't want to be under that strain.

"They started with three songs an episode so maybe they were signing their own death warrant, they should have just done one."

Rhys, who will next be seen on screen in a comedy pilot on Channel 4 called The Amazing Dermot, said he would definitely work with the boys again.

He said: "I secretly don't think it's the end of the end. We'll come back in some shape or form, whether it's a special or a shorts season or a film."

:: The Amazing Dermot is on Channel 4 on December 4.

Jemaine said as much recently right? Cracked me up coz I've been thinking that all along.

I don't know that coming up with songs is what did them in, so to speak, they also had to come up with 10 new scripts as well. I think Jemaine has been very open about all of that from the beginning, how much work it is and how much it drains them and how it's hard to keep the quality up when you are involved in every creative nook and cranny and you're in a time crunch.

Personally I think that if HBO gave them 5 years to come up with a 3rd season they'd consider it. :lol:
