Flight of the Concords

So I finally got around to watching the first episode of the new HBO show Flight of the Concords. I have to say it was better than I thought it would be and I'm looking forward to seeing more of it. If you missed it here's a link to a clip of their recent appearance on Late Show with David Letterman. The song is "Beautiful Girl" and it cracks me up.

Reviews of the show haven't been too bad. From the NY Times (by way of AICN) "funny in such an understated way that it is almost dangerous to make too much of it — it could collapse like a soufflĂ© when the door slams. It’s much slighter than HBO’s big production comedies like “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and “Entourage.” It’s also a little sweeter, less a satire of show business than wry self-parody.… "

It airs Sunday nights at 1030 on HBO...check out repeat broadcasts during the week.
