I, too, am not a huge fan of the television show. The stage shows, however, are beautiful.

Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros is my original introduction to Flight of the Conchords. How could I not fall in love with them? The brilliant lyrics, the quips, the stark vulnerability... if I could date this song, I would. And what a dedicated girlfriend I would be! I'd kick Steve's ass for my baby!

I actually really love the Flight of the Conchords, but sometimes I like their songs better when they're just on stage as opposed to in the show.  They're a little more raw and sometimes the jokes just come off a little funnier than when they aren't trying to act or dance.  The Hiphopopotamus and the Rhymenoceros are a great example of this.  Check out this clip, in which Bret and Jermaine seem a little more energized... plus in this version you get the Rhymenoceros' "freestyle".
