    So, I just checked out some clips. All i had ever seen before was two guys with acoustics on a stage. Dullsville. But "Muther*Uckers" was hilarious!! Particularly to me because I could never understand why anyone would put a record on the air that had to be edited so much that the sentences were incomprehensible. Big ups to FotC for actually singing that way!

    They really do benefit from an actual show, as my introduction to them was similar to Avvie's (their acoustic live show). The show has made their work and material infinitely more humorous.

    I love FOTC. I think the show is awesome although the live sets are better

    Endorsement: Flight of the Conchords is hilarious.

    "Most Beautiful Girl...in the Room" -- priceless


    Them Newzies are funkified.


    Jermaine was doing "Outback" commercials for a while. Those are funny, too.

    Their HBO comedy special is worth watching as well.

    Best HBO show of all-time: Dream On


    which is basically a funnier "Californication" with David Duchovny that just premiered on Showtime.

    Hey! Here it is some 18 months later and I finally had the opportunity to check out the first season of FOTC. Frickin' brilliant. Loved nearly every minute of it.

    All of the songs were hilarious, if pressed to pick a fave I probably go with "It's Business Time".

    Big thanks to those who recommended it.

    Best HBO series is either OZ or The Wire. Not even close...
