"Flight of the Conchords" Is Having its Wings Clipped
Trade News | September 3, 2008 | Comments ()
I’m not a big fan of HBO’s “Flight of the Conchords.” I find most of the humor too forced in a “look how wacky and crazy we’re being” sort of way (although, yes, the “Humans are Dead” and David Bowie stuff is decent). So I’m not terribly bummed about the fact that Season Two of the HBO series will probably be the last. But for those fans out there, of whom I know there are many, sorry.
Seems that the well is running dry for Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement, who say they’re having trouble coming up with songs for the season, having milked most of their old repertoire dry last season. Says Clement: “We’ve got a lot of half-songs…. We’ve got an album’s worth of beginnings of songs.”
Huh. I guess it turns out that forced wackiness can only be forced so far.
