My Music Monday

Critics raved about the show Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. A year or two again we tried it on Netflix. I don't think we got through two episodes.

It revolves around a New York attorney who runs into some guy she either dated or wanted to date, who was moving out to California. She decides she loves him and follows him to California.....without telling him.

Hilarity ensues????

Oh - and folks break into song.  And dance.  Did I forget that part?

We kind of forgot about the show and then stumbled upon season 4 a few months ago, which was airing more real time than the Netflix-lag part. While I'm sure we missed a bunch of key elements, we got the gist and kept watching.

While I won't say it was a 'wow', but it had its moments. We pick up that Rachel now has three would-be suitors, including her ex-boyfriend. All vie for her affection.  ....and they all sing and dance.

As it would turn out, they did like 173 numbers over the years. That's a lot of original songs and choreography.

Clearly the show had a following, cult or otherwise. Upon the series finale a few weeks ago the cast performed some of the songs from the show. The audience looked like a Let's Make a Deal crew Outfits that we guessed were from other episodes and each one seemed to know each and every song. And we are talking a huge huge theater.

For the record, we didn't know any of the songs.  But we watched. A few of them are good singers, most are passable, but it's the way it's supposed to be.

As we didn't know any of them, we laughed at one, and it was not badly put together.  It's called, "Let's Generalize About Men".    .....and yes, you have to stay until the end.

There's a woman at work who spends a good portion of her days trying to convince people to watch this show.

Because I now associate the show with her, I probably won't watch it. But it sounds as though you got a little out of it, so it can't be all bad!
