Just caught this show over the weekend, and it's brilliant.  I try to avoid TV shows just because there's such a commitment involved once you get hooked on them, but this one sucked me right in.  I've actually seen these guys do stand-up on the Comedy Channel, but that was a while back.

It's a comedy with musical interludes, very dead-pan humour with an "Office" feel.

Plot summary taken from IMDB:
"Two New Zealander friends experience life, love, friendship, all the usual stuff, while trying to make their lives as a rock band. A rock band that can only schedule a performance at the local aquarium, is run by an eager and overambitious New Zealand buddy, and has only one fan."

Highly recommended, I'm sure they must have some YouTube vids of the show and their stand-up.  Check it out!

Yea, their show is great!
The first like four or five shows are absolutely hilarious.  Then it kinda drags a bit for the next couple, then comes back with 2 or 3 great ones.  Then alternates hot and cold.  But overall I love it, and can't wait for a full album and more episodes.

They've been renewed for Season 2 beginning this Summer, and the new album ships in April!

Will the album have any new material, or only stuff they have already written and put in the show?

Not sure, I'll have to look into it.  They performed a lot of their songs from the show on the stand-up show I originally saw them on.  It doesn't matter though, the show itself is still riotous.

I think you two are the only people on the planet that find that show funny. I'd rather go to the dentist.

Probably the same reason you like Transformers and I fell asleep during it.  Different strokes.
