Bowie

Poor old Bret starts suffering from body image issues during a photoshoot in which Murray calls him “small”. Oddly he gets dream advice from rock idol David Bowie telling him not to worry about his body image, instead advising him to get an eyepatch! Sexy. Meanwhile Murray announces that he’s arranged to meet a greeting-card company who have shown interest in using one of the band’s songs in a musical greeting card. Is this finally a real chance for the band to earn some much needed moolah? Or another pie-in-the-sky idea?

Sally Returns

After a chance meeting at the Laundromat Jemaine reconnects with the girl who dumped both him and Bret. Meanwhile at the band meeting Murray announces that he has started a �band investment portfolio� by purchasing some real estate. Sounds somewhat interesting until Murray reveals the real estate is actually three stars he nabbed for $50 each!

Bret Gives Up The Dream

Facing the harsh realities of the struggling artist’s life they’ve chosen, Bret leaves the band to take a ‘real’ job. As a result Murray and Jermaine are forced to look for his replacement.

Sally

Bret and Jermaine have relocated their band, Flight of the Conchords, to New York. Now all they need are some gigs and some hot women. Should be simple enough amongst the bright lights of NYC right? Maybe not. Will the tight friendship survive when one of the guys falls for the other’s ex? Sounds like a recipe for disaster if you ask me!

Jermaine Clement and Bret Mckenzie from Kiwi act Flight of the Conchords will feature on The Simpsons later this year.

The Wellington two-piece will guest star on the hit American cartoon, with a source close to the pair revealing they had recorded the episode in January this year.

Clement and McKenzie ran lines with Nancy Cartwright, the voice of Bart, over the phone from Wellington before they headed to the US to record.

The pair will become just the third Kiwi’s to appear on the show, following appearances by Jurassic Park’s Sam Neil in 1994 and Xena actress Lucy Lawless in 1999.

the BOX – Thursday 31 December, from 8.30pm (encores Friday 1 January, from 4.30pm)

Sick of spending your New Years with the rest of the dicks on the dance floor?

Say goodbye to 2009 and bring in 2010 with the boys who rock the party!

Celebrate the New Year with NZ’s fourth most popular folk parody duo Bret McKenzie (Lord Of The Rings) and Jemaine Clement (Eagle V Shark). We are playing the entire second series of this international cult favourite back-to-back this New Years Eve, and then relieving the hangover with laughter on New Years Day.

Watch as Bret and Jermaine dabble in prostitution, start gangs, date Australian women and search for epileptic dogs. Bret and Jermaine are supported by Rhys Darby (Yes Man, The Boat That Rocked) who plays Murray Hewitt, New Zealand Deputy Cultural Attaché and the groups’ amicable manager as well as Kristen Schaal the ever faithful and psychopathic number 1 fan, Mel. Other special guests in this season include Brian Sergent (Outrageous Fortune, Eagle Vs Shark) who plays New Zealand’s Prime Minister, and his assistant Paula, Lucy Lawless.

In a statement released on their official site, Bret & Jermaine have announced that there will not be a third season of Flight of the Conchords.

We’ve noticed the less we say about the future of the show, the more people want to talk about it, so in an effort to reverse this trend we are today announcing that we won’t be returning for a 3rd season.

We’re very proud of the two seasons we made and we like the way the show ended. We’d like to thank everyone who helped make the show and also everyone who watched it.

The duo have assured fans that Flight of the Conchords are still together.

While the characters Bret and Jemaine will no longer be around, the real Bret and Jemaine will continue to exist.

In what was supposed to only ever be a single season series, Flight of the Conchords is now looking like it will make it to three.

Of course, the executives at HBO are eager for a third season of the hit comedy show but will Bret and Jermaine give them the nod?

Rumors are always rife and despite the duo being content to leave it at two seasons, there is speculation that we’ll be boarding for a third flight shortly.
