Release Date: 3 August 2009
Copyright: HBO Home Entertainment
Certificate: TBC
Genre: Comedy Series
Price: £34.99
Running Time: 629 minutes
Audio: English 5.1
Special features: As above

Get Ready to Folk! New Zealand’s fourth most popular folk parody duo FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS are back to take on New York in the second season of their four time Emmy-nominated smash hit comedy released on DVD on 3 August by HBO Home Entertainment.

This is a must have for any music and comedy fan as the show grows from cult to mainstream status. If you’ve seen the BBC4 broadcast or are a fan of the comedy styling’s of The Mighty Boosh, Peep Show or Gavin and Stacey you’re in for a treat! The DVD is packed with special features including outtakes, deleted scenes and several featurettes including a mini documentary on the band’s pursuit of fame, Dave’s Pawn Shop Commercials’ and a hilarious dance clip hidden ‘Easter Egg’.

Music comedy duo Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie return as the hapless musicians who left their native New Zealand for New York’s Lower East Side in a bid for world domination. Familiar faces return including hapless manager Murray (Rhys Darby, The Boat That Rocked, Yes Man ), who still works at the bare-bones New Zealand consulate, Mel (Kristen Shaal), their obsessive Super-fan and Doug (David Costabile), her long-suffering husband. There’s a whole host of new, hilarious songs including ‘Sugalumps’: ‘All these bitches checkin’ out my britches/ Put ‘em in a trance/ When I wear track pants’ and Fashion is Danger’: ‘I’m larger than life with just a hint of lace’.

Over the course of the new season they resort to a variety of ridiculous and unconventional strategies in an attempt to jump-start their lives and career, working as prostitutes to pay off a reckless cup purchase, after Bret frivolously decides that they need more than one coffee cup in their apartment, starting up a gang to protect themselves from rappers they’ve dissed in their songs, dating an Australian – a massive taboo in New Zealand and even firing Murray who has to prove to them just why he’s the man for the job. The bands efforts rarely yield dividends but do spawn new tunes about life, love and their pursuit of an elusive music video…..

Clement and McKenzie first teamed up in 1998, performing briefly under the names Moustache and Vested Interest before becoming FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS. Earning a worldwide cult following through their live performances, the duo was named Best Alternative Comedy Act at the 2005 U.S. Comedy Arts Festival, and Best Newcomer at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, and was nominated for the Perrier Comedy Award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. They released the live album “Folk the World” in 2002, and headlined a six-part BBC Radio 2 series, which won a Sony UK Comedy Award. They debuted on HBO in 2005 with their own “One-Night Stand.”

The show is co-written and created by eight time Emmy Award nominee James Bobin, who was a director and writer on the 11 O’Clock Show and Da Ali G Show and helped create the characters of Ali G, Borat and Bruno. Bobin had previously seen Bret and Jemaine perform and signed on to co-create the show Flight of the Conchords for HBO in 2007.

Hopefully a Blu-ray release of Season 2 only (since Season 1 was shot in SD) will be out shortly after the DVD version.
