The most subtle comedy I have ever seen
16 July 2007 | by (United Arab Emirates) – See all my reviews

The subtle sense of laughter this show has is quite exceptional. Watching it, you never get the sense of bursting into hard laughs, yet you are not bored; during the length of the entire show, there is only one expression on your face, a wide smile. you get the feeling of extreme mellowness with a dash of cool, plus that New Zealand accent for garnish, and you got your self a recipe for, in my opinion, one of the best original comedies you'll ever see. But I also must note that with a fresh comedy like, you've got to have a sense of patience, since the mellowness of the show gives it a kind of slow motion to the events that occur. Finally the greatest part, and most funny, is the music. between scenes the Conchords sing a song that relates to the events occurring during the episode, and each song is just more hilarious than the one that preceded it, thus keeping that smile on your face.

In conclusion, I love it.
