Flight Of The Conchords season two, episode one ... bridging the gap?

Flight Of The Conchords season two, episode one ... bridging the gap?

I watched the season premiere of Flight of the Conchords with GalPal last night and admit I'm a tad worried about the new season. I was late to the series in the first place -- primarily because pushy publicists so deluged me with pitches that the mere thought of the show would send me into tremors -- but GalPal sat me down a few months ago and made me watch the whole series.

The result? I kicked myself for not watching it sooner!

But! The great this about the first season is that it seemed to cover all the ground you could cover and pretty neatly tied things up. I honestly don't think they ever expected to have to do a second season! But here they are, and here it is ... and the result? Well, I'm undecided at this point. The premier has its moments, but it's pretty obviously a bridge between the two season as it attempts to untie all the resolution of last season's finale.

Despite this wobbly beginning I am cautiously optimistic. And I admit that since I am still rather new to the series, and have relatively only recently seen the whole thing, my expectations might be higher than someone who was into it from the get-go but has had a long vacation from it.

Anyway, enough jabber from me. Why don't you watch the episode -- in full below 00 and let me know what you think?
