    Why is Jermaine insisting on Bret being grounded in the real world, concrete actions etc. ?

    You haven't looked into the SP temperament very deeply have you?

    After watching that, I'm even more sure "Jemaine" (from now on, I'll put their names in quotes when referring to their characters) is an S and "Bret" is an N.

    They seem to have a lot of jokes about "Bret" doing something ridiculous and "Jemaine" pointing out how ridiculous it is:

    Another example of this:

    That could just be strong T vs F.

    ...and they don't love trying/doing/creating new things?

    They love doing new things. But 95% of the time, they'll have a glimmer of an idea and I'm the one who expands on it.

    What exactly was so innovative about the show anyway?

    They were a parody folk act, that after being rejected by New Zealand tv networks took a huge punt on the US market, the show is just an expansion on their well established stand up act.

    I know ... stage act --> radio show --> television. I've been a fan for years.


    I actually think their stage show is far more innovative (and funnier) than their television show. But their tv show is innovative for television. They took "The Monkees," thrust them into a modern setting, and completely dried out the humor. But the way they did it was dazzling. There were so many ways they could have failed, but they pulled it off.
