This week's Thursday Movie Picks is TMP Television Edition - Music/Musicals

---



I knew this theme is going to be a tough one since there are not a lot of musical TV series which is why I've also included TV series that are music related so shows like Nashville and Empire would fall under them, though they don't end up on my list since they're a little too soap opera-ish for me and I'm not really a fan of the genre of music those series center on. Anyway here are my picks, two of which are musicals.

Galavant  (2015-2016)
The Gist: In a fairytale-esque world, a dashing knight, Galavant, goes on a quest to save his love who was kidnapped by an evil king. I've only seen the first season of this musical series and I enjoyed it a lot. It is soo charming and funny and the songs are really fun and catchy. I'd recommend this to those who like movies like The Princess Bride, Enchanted and Ella Enchanted.

 
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (2015-2019)
The Gist: Running into her summer camp ex boyfriend one day inspires a woman to abandon her life and job in New York to move to his hometown so that she can insert herself back in his life. This is another musical pick. I had seen like an episode of this and dropped it, thinking it wasn't something I enjoyed. Then it went on Netflix and I pretty much binged watch the earlier seasons. I have yet to watch the final season but I really enjoyed the first three seasons. It's a funny series and the musical numbers are fun, they often make pop culture references and sort of imitates popular music video styles while making fun of them. I also love that each season has a new opening theme musical number.

Mozart in the Jungle (2014-2018)
The Gist: This comedic drama follows the lives of the musicians of the New York Symphony just as a new conductor and a young oboist joins them. This is the only non-musical of my picks. I had known of this series but had not heard much about it (I'm of the opinion that Amazon series don't get talked about as much as Netflix series, or maybe it's just me not paying much attention to them.) and since I've never really been into classical music I wasn't sure how much I would enjoy this. Anyway, I'm so glad I decided to check this out. Mozart in the Jungle is very charming and gives such an interesting fun look at the inner workings of an orchestra. And yes...the music was also great.

  1. We share Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. I've only seen five episodes as I've just started watching it on Netflix and I don't have a lot of time lately, but I'm really liking it so far. A few numbers didn't work for me though.

    1. Not all the musicals numbers of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend work for me either, but the ones that are good are really good I thought. It is sort of amazing what they able to put out every week especially since musicals are really hard to make; there's the story component and then there's the musical component with original songs and all that choreography.
