Top 10 People on "Flight of the Conchords" Season One Who Are Not Bret or Jemaine

Hey, guys. Rob and I have been slacking and we are so very, very sorry. Here is the deal. He is in LA and I am gearing up for a conference in SF, so things are VB. (Very... Brachiosaurus?! No, busy. Very busy.)

Anyway, though... you all probably love the HBO series Flight of the Conchords. We do, too. And the thing is, as great as Bret and Jemaine are, they also have the BEST guest stars and supporting cast in all of television. All of these people will be your favorite people eventually.

(PS: This is just season one guest stars/supporting cast... THAT WAY WE CAN DO ANOTHER LIST LATER, PROBS!)
