Trivia / Flight of the Conchords

  • Actor Allusion: Bret had a bit part as a background character in The Lord of the Rings, nicknamed "Figwit" by fans. The show references The Lord of the Rings frequently, but it's mostly a joke about American Small Reference Pools.
  • What Could Have Been: Considering both the tour guide from the unfeatured "Bus Driver's Song" and the Prime Minister of New Zealand harbour an unrequited crush on a girl named Paula, and the Prime Minister at one point acts as a tour guide on a bus, you can't help but think there was originally meant to be a connection there.
    • At the end of that episode, the melody from the Bus Drivers Song plays, but the song was probably not included as the lyrics refer to the town in which the Bus Driver grew up in, rather than the ten-meter strech of road that has been turned into New Zealand-town.
