"Flight of the Conchords": Man Pad Personified

"Flight of the Conchords": Man Pad Personified

I was so sad to see the end of the season of "Flight of the Conchords." While I initially didn't expect much from this HBO show, I've consistently been impressed by Bret and Jemaine's great comedic timing and excellent songsmithing. What can I say? I'm a huge fan (and it seems as if BuzzSugar is as well).

I hate to admit it, but I've also been impressed by the interior design of the show. It's been meticulously designed to appear as if it's been designed by a pair of dudes absolutely clueless about design. It's bizarrely brilliant. From the '70s curtains to the thrifted bike in the corner to the castoff kitchenwear, the detailing is fantastic.

For instance, take a look at this photo of their kitchen nook. The bad florescent lighting, curbside vinyl chairs, and fake woodgrain folding table are only a few of the brilliant details.


For more photos and a link to a great video, just

What details would you Casa readers point to as deliberately bad—though brilliant—set styling in this photo?


Or in this one? (Granted, this is a bit odd—it's a photo from Jemaine's move to a new "apartment" that's actually a broom closet, so he's sleeping standing up.)

You can check out a hilarious Flight of the Conchords video over at GiggleSugar. And you can find the Conchords' "official" site here, though it doesn't read much differently (or coherently) than a meeting with band manager Murray.

One of my favorite shows on HBO. I could watch the David Bowie episode over and over again. Can't wait for next season!

I've always loved the mismatched cups and plates.

"Bizarrely brilliant" is a really great way to sum it up! I love that there are stripes on everything...and each piece on the set adds to their sad but loving "we don't care, but we care so much" attitude.

I love this show too! One of my favorite episodes is "Girlfriend". I love it when they break into a music video in the middle of the show! The lyrics are so funny! Every time they are in Murray's office for a band meeting I laugh when I see the poster on his wall "New Zealand, Why not?" *LOL* I hope they come back for a second season!

I was a late convert to the FotC as well, but I really like their kooky humor. Cool that you wrote an article on their sets!

This is the most fabulous show on TV. I've already started to re-watch the season "on demand" since I'm missing the boys (and of course Murray and Mel) already.
