Season Two of Flight of the Conchords wasn't quite as inventive as the amazing Season One, but it was still excellent television. If you don't have HBO, do yourself a favor and pick up this DVD today. Not only are Jemaine and Bret hilarious, but Murray may be the funniest character on television not named Dwight Schrute. This is the Steven Soderbergh I want to see. Not Oceans Steven Soderbergh but dense, four-hour movie about Latin American revolutionary Steven Soderbergh (The Limey is still his best film, though). I had such high hopes for The Soloist, but it was far too maudlin to ever fully succeed. I had no hopes for the Witch Mountain re-boot so there was nothing to be dashed. America, what are we going to do about Dwayne Johnson? Want to see a great film that you almost certainly missed at the theater? Try Gomorrah; don't try Mysteries of Pittsburgh.
