Video Selections: Television, 7/9

melI’m slowly warming to HBO’s new Flight of the Conchords. As a generality, hipster comedy is often just so much fluff intermingled with a hot soundtrack and thrift store costuming, as if it’s OK to package garbage in a kitchy but slick package that twenty-somethings can relate to. But against my hater instincts, I have to report that there’s actual comedy here – even the musical interludes, more often than not, are beyond eye-rolling reproach. A welcomed inclusion to the Conchords ensemble is comedienne Kristen Schall as freaky-fan Mel. (Schall can also be seen guest-hosting over at’s video Do’s and Don’ts and Friends.)
