Take This Flight Before It's Gone

I find most TV sitcoms to be unfunny, but Flight of the Conchords is laugh out loud. I haven't had such a good time watching a show since the first season of Curb Your Enthusiasm, the 2nd season of Extras and the British and U.S. versions of the Office. The parody songs are right on, and the behind the scenes need to make it in a big city (New York, here) ring true. It's because I like the show so much that I fear it won't be around for a second season. The ratings are low, but it did build a cult following. HBO might give it another try, depending on whether they can parlay fan and critical reaction to a popular following. But they won't. This has cult written all over it. Which means 10 years from a few of us will look back in laughter.
