I loved this one right away - but this is my all time favorite episode from both seasons...definitely. I STILL laugh out loud during almost the ENTIRE thing.

This definitely is one of my favourite episodes of all time! Carol Brown is an amazing song, Too Many Dicks is hilarious, Michel Gondry's direction provided an excellent touch, Keitha was a great character, lots of good one-liners- there are too many things to mention! :D

Awesome! You're right, that wasn't in the US version. I wonder if that will be on the DVD? [image]

Flight Of The Conchords season 2 episode 5 review

Glen Chapman

Flight Of The Conchords remains in a bit of a slump with its latest episode, but there are some highlights nonetheless...

Published on Jun 10, 2009


5. Unnatural Love


'Too many dudes
With too many dicks
Too close to my shii
Too hard to meet chicks
I need better odds
More broads, less rods
I came to do battle
Scadaddle with the cattle prods'
'


This week's episode sees the boys hit the town, albeit rather reluctantly, at Murray's request. Once inside the club the boys are dancing with Dave and are a little too close for his liking, so he requests that they "spread out the dicks a bit" and launch into Too Many Dicks On The Dance Floor, a dance number about a sausage-fest. It's decent enough; the highlight is Dave's segment above. The scene was directed by Michel Gondry, something that's easily recognisable by his visual style. Gondry also makes a, blink and miss it, cameo later in the episode.

Following the song we find Jemaine waking up in the bed of a girl, but not just any girl - an Australian. Seemingly he was able to pull despite there being too many dicks on the dance floor. Naturally, he tries to escape unnoticed but can't get out of the door. Panicked he phones Bret for advice and is about to jump out of the window when he's caught by the woman, who introduces herself as "Kietha". She asks Jemaine, or 'Big-J', to stay but he makes his excuses and heads to a clinic, with Bret, for a check-up. Bret asks what the red stuff around Jemaine's mouth is, Jemaine states that it's lipstick but Bret's convinced that it's crabs.

Later at the band meeting Murray is outraged to find out what Jemaine has done, and warns him about Australian women enticing sailors and causing their ships to sink. It's pointed out that Murray is possibly getting Australian women confused with mermaids. Murray and Bret discuss the possibility of expelling Jemaine from the band. Despite his indiscretion, they allow him to stay and ask him if he still has his wallet, to which Jemaine replies yes.

Jemaine revisits Kietha to retrieve his missing wallet and is convinced to have a cup of tea. He probably wishes he didn't say yes to milk though, as Kietha poured it from a cereal bowl. They discuss her heritage and it turns out that she's the descendant of a rapist and a prostitute. Following their chat, Kietha manages to convince Big-J to go to bed.

Jemaine and Kietha start dating which is something that Bret and Murray don't approve of. Not having the highest opinion of Kietha due to her nationality, things aren't exactly improved when she turns out to be quite crass when Jemaine brings her to meet them at a cafe, announcing that she was "going to the dunny to murder a brown snake".

Kietha's friends also aren't the biggest fans of Jemaine. When he goes to visit Kietha they tell him that she's left the country despite her being visible to Jemaine. When Jemaine questions her about this later she says that it's because he's a dick and that she's rutted better-looking guys when blind drunk. After this conversation Jemaine sings Carol Brown, a song that lists his ex-girlfriends and the reasons why they left him. It also sees Bret and Jemaine playing rather fantastic-looking guitars.

Jemaine and Kietha agree to elope to New Jersey and arrange to meet up later. Jemaine waits for hours and Kietha doesn't show. He decides to head home and tries to get a hansom cab driver to take him but is disappointed to learn that they only go around the park and decides to go on foot.

When he returns home he finds the apartment empty and Bret taped to the back of the door. It turns out that Kietha and her friends robbed them whilst Jemaine was out. Jemaine hands Bret his sandwich and gives him a hug, which Bret points out he isn't participating in.

Mixed feelings about the episode, it had some really funny moments and two fairly strong songs. But despite this it seemed a little flat overall. Nowhere near as bad as the first or fourth episodes, but not as strong as two and three. Let's hope that they can get out of the slump next week...

I promised myself I would just read and not post as I already spend way too much time on-line.

But... :-)

I just thought I'd mention that Iain Morris and Damon Beesley also write the incredibly funny "The Inbetweeners" on E4 (UK). The joke about Bret wearing the vest top that his Mum bought him and looking like Bruce Willis almost definitely came from them, as a similar situation happens to Simon Bird's character in the Inbetweeners!

I first wondered in there was a link between Iain Morris and Damon Beesley and FOTC when Jay's fake ID had the name "Bret Clement" :-)

Okay, no more posting (at least today) other than to say that I actually missed half of the jokes in this episode due to uncontrollable laughing, especially during "Can Australians feel love?" :-) Even my Mum loved this episode and she hardly cracked a smile during The New Cup.

Cheerio! Amy. XXX
