    Schmigadoon! Episode 6: “How We Change” (Season Finale)

    Schmigadoon! Episode 6  “How We Change” takes everything that has happened so far and wraps it up in an unexpectedly moving episode about the value of growth, change, and expressing your feelings through song.

    Schmigadoon! Episode 5 — “Tribulation”

    Schmigadoon! Episode 5 “Tribulation” doubles down on the musical theatre parody while also increasing the stakes. Everything that happens in the episode is tied closely to the musicals that the show is mining for ideas, which leaves little room for the characters to develop their motivations. This makes Schmigadoon! a frustrating show. Entertaining, but frustrating. […] More

    My Top 10 Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Non-Rebecca Songs!

    If you didn’t already know, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is my favourite thing on television. Nothing else I have seen can manage to address mental health in such a serious manner, provide an accurate portrayal of someone suffering from BPD, and still be a lighthearted humorous musical! The large list of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend songs have never failed […] More

    Schmigadoon! Episode 3 — “Cross That Bridge”

    Schmigadoon! Episode 3, “Cross That Bridge” picks up right where “Lover’s Spat” left off, but it is clear from the very first moments that things are beginning to get more serious in the technicolor musical town. Melissa (Cecily Strong) does sleep with Danny Bailey (Aaron Tveit) and it does not lead to the best of results […] More

    Very early in the first episode of Schmigadoon!, the new musical show on Apple TV+,  the central couple wind up in an argument that is also an intentional meta-commentary about how people will feel about the show itself.

    Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: “Can Josh Take a Leap of Faith?”

    Remember during Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Season 3 when Rebecca was being drugged by her mother and started to believe that Naomi was being kind to her? During the song “Maybe She’s Not Such a Heinous Bitch After All” (which is incredible, by the way) Rebecca sings “I know it sounds like I’m falling in love, well, […] More
