Orange is the New Black | Season 5 Official Trailer (YouTube)

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: Season 2

February 19, 2017

crazy-ex-girlfriend-s2Netflix premiered Season 2 of the CW’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend this past week. I binged through the delightful comedy infused with original genre-homage musical numbers. Not as edgy as the premiere season, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend‘s sophomore outing still holds its own spoofing sit-coms and proving the cast and crew are some of the most talented folks working in television. It’s not easy to make me laugh, so I don’t always judge the quality of a comedy by how often I LOL. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend continues its smart journey through the crazy world of one woman’s quest to find the perfect mate. The musical numbers still shine. The cast is remarkable. Perhaps not the best season this series will put out, it’s still worth spending time with Rebecca Munch and her assortment of oddball friends and family. 3.5 out of 5.

Also, I can’t decide which musical number to profile here, so I’ll post a few. These are pure genius parody:

When We Rise (trailer)

February 4, 2017

Is anyone else excited about the ABC mini-series, When We Rise coming to television the end of the month? The series written by Dustin Lance Black (Milk) chronicles the continuing struggle for LGBT equality from Stonewall to Marriage Equality. I’m sure Black didn’t realize how topical this series would be when he began writing. Ironically, the series which was intended to air on ABC over four consecutive nights is now being interrupted between 1 & 2 by Donald Trump’s congressional address. Since I don’t have cable or live streaming, I’ll be looking for this on disk and perhaps Netflix or Amazon in the very near future. Watch the trailer for this series featuring an incredible cast.

When We Rise airs beginning Monday, February 27, 2017 on ABC.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: Season 1

January 30, 2017

Oh my lord, just what I needed this week. Silly antics with a decidedly powerful feminist twist. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend turns kooky sit-coms on its head making us laugh and clap and sing along with the delightful and intelligent Rachel Bloom – creator, writer and star of this wonderful new comedy infused with the most hysterical parody musical numbers ever. Incredibly talented cast including Vincent Rodriguez III, Donna Lynne Champlin, Pete Gardner, Santino Fontana, Vella Lovell, Gabrielle Ruiz, and David Hull. Any series that references the Bechdel Test in passing with no explanation (cheat sheet) for the audience gets major bonus points in my book. And included in the same episode as the Bechdel reference is a Dream Girls tribute number featuring Michael Hyatt (The Wire), Amber Riley (Glee) and Ricki Lake. Head exploding in 5, 4, 3… Love Paula, Daryl and White Josh, Greg and Heather and of course Rebecca and Josh. With the insanity of this week in the U.S., projects like Crazy Ex-Girlfriend give us a much-needed break and feed our soul. Thank you Rachel Bloom! 4 out of 5.

Hat tip to my work buddy Nicole for turning me on to another amazing show.

Anyone else think the sun in the theme song video sounds like Paul Lynde? Decide for yourself on YouTube.

And if you want to experience the level of professionalism, here is the full music video for “After Everything I’ve Done For You” from Donna Lynne Champlin. The lyrics are insane and the performance makes me wish the cast would go on tour. Donna’s unbelievable as Paula. Watch the video on YouTube.
