‘Flight of the Conchords’ + ‘Glee’ = ‘The Simpsons’ September 26 Episode

Glee is the big thing at FOX now, but it isn’t the greatest musical television series ever. No, that honor goes to the delightfully quirky Flight of the Conchords, HBO’s single funniest show ever. Conchords, which ended its two-season run last year, starred Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement as two hapless New Zealanders trying to become musical successes in New York. Their antics were always accompanied by one or two absolutely hilarious songs an episode. The half-hour comedy was the absolute best musical series on television, and makes Glee simply pale in comparison.

Luckily, it’s not a competition. Instead, the two shows will be working in tandem, even though McKenzie and Clement chose to end their series. Glee and Flight of the Conchords will be meeting in the season 22 premiere of The Simpsons for a very special musical episode titled “Elementary School Musical” — a pun that isn’t too hard to figure out.

Glee is a FOX property, and the Simpsons episode is naturally being heralded as Glee-themed. Glee stars Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Amber Riley will be providing voice work for the premiere, which centers on a Lisa being sent to a “performing arts camp.” The camp’s counselors will be voiced by McKenzie and Clement. Clement recently co-starred in the Paul Rudd/Steve Carrell film Dinner for Schmucks.

Other Simpsons guest stars this season? Hugh Laurie (House), Daniel Radcliffe, Mark Zuckerberg, Halle Berry, Ricky Gervais (Extras), Paul Rudd, Rachel Weisz, Cheech & Chong, Jon Hamm (Mad Men), Kristen Wiig, Alyson Hannigan, Danica Patrick, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Joe Mantegna.

Is it just me, or do I smell The Simpsons becoming relevant again?

The episode is set to premiere on Sunday, September 26 on FOX. I might just be setting my DVR to catch this episode.
