Sunday Night Conchords Blogging

by Nicholas Beaudrot of Electoral Math

The best part of this show is that it's almost completely unbloggable. Stuff happened for thirty minutes. It was funny. The end. Really, what other commentary can one possibly provide?

Ah, but what about the ending of this week's Entourage? Not only was it bloggable, it actually invoked a blog of sorts (TPM). Yikes. I mean, you kind saw that coming, but did we really need to see it?

(And yeah, I completely agree about the Conchords--funny and goofy and, okay, how do you describe it?)

TMZ, not TPM, but still bloggy.

As for Conchords, I have wanted to blog this: they have this recurrent joke where they give you just enough information, whether verbally or within the frame, and then they dribble out just a little extra and that's the joke (for example, "I think it was that, and also that I dated her for, like, six months."). This has become pervasive from a spatial standpoint in recent weeks, with camera angles that don't show some other person at the table (Bret with Jemaine and the mugger) or in the apartment (the guy subletting Jemaine's room) or in front of Koko's house (Jemaine telling him "kiss her"). It's the same joke but it always seems to work anyway.

Argh, sorry. Yes, I meant TMZ of course.

Maybe he did what?

I'm just happy that "Business Time" is going to be in next week's episode.

Test comment - got a 'comment spam' error message when trying to respond to another post here.

I really <3 the show - it's nice to see some humor about hipsters that isn't just a bunch of cheap shots and shibboleths strung together. (Not that that can't be fun.) That said, the fact that episode 3 was essentially a combination of Ep 1's premise and Ep 2's emotional throughline does make me worry for the long term.
