Garfunkel and Oates on IFC

Think Broad City meets Flight of the Conchords. I find it very funny and a pleasure to watch.

I like their videos on youtube, but am having a hard time getting interested in the show.

I'm watching it, but it may take me a while to get into the format. The whole music video schtick is a bit too cutesy for me, but the jury's still out. Otherwise, I find it enjoyable.

I prefer the wacky pomplamoose folks ...
everyone else is far too cutesy ... quirky.

urrrggghhh, I can't stamp Pomplamoose.

I also find G&O too cutesy and twee.

I watched their old show, too.

Both suffer from weak plots and lower production values, where the plot seems forced around the song of the week instead of the other way around. But I love them so much I deal with that.

I'm terribly amused that their agent is a puppet.

Officially cancelled this week. As a final tribute to honor the show feel free to have a kazoo parade.

I really liked this show, but I didn't think they could do another season anyway. Where would they get enough new songs to fill a season?

They have multiple albums of songs already.

Though, I suspect, "go cart racing, accidentally masturbating" may not fit onto TV all that well....
