I remember when Mozart in the Jungle was part of Amazon’s pilot [week?] where you could vote on what shows you’d like Amazon to pick up. I watched the pilot, and liked it most out of the shows I watched. I did think some of the pilot had a hint of “trying too hard edgy cable gratuitous sex” – but that hasn’t been the case in any of the other episodes.
In fact, I never watched it again until March. Then I blew through both seasons in a week. A week! The pilot is longer – the other episodes are about 30 minutes. I love it. I’m re-watching it now. I’m bereft that season 3 isn’t out yet and Amazon hasn’t ordered more seasons yet. I think this is one of the most under-appreciated and under-buzzed shows out there.
If you like music at all – you just have to watch this show. I mean maybe it’s because I grew up trying to learn classical music (I was never really good and didn’t love it then …) – but the music. And the characters. <3
The Trailer for Season One:
I need more. I re-watched a two episodes of Pushing Daisies yesterday which I enjoyed as much as I did when it first came out. It was nice … but it was no Mozart in the Jungle.
Oh, I LOVED Pushing Daisies! Totally forgot about that show. Thanks for the reminder!! I’ll save Mozart for when I have a block of time. If it’s that good, I know I’ll want to watch, “just one more episode,” and then look up and it’s 3 in the morning. Right now we love Lucifer. There’s a lot of silliness, but the actors who play Lucifer and Maze are spectacular, and Laura Harris as Lucifer’s psychiatrist is hysterical.
Daisies…I can’t explain auto correct on that one.
if you notice, the lower case I isn’t working on anything you typed.
That is so weird!!!
I don’t have prime, so I don’t watch Amazon’s shows.
I’m Denise–so tired I missed a letter
apparently, I”m having problems with the letter “i.”
this isn’t funny that my lower case I isn’t working on your site. I bet that’s why her daisies was spelled incorrectly.
YES! I’m typIng It out and It looks fIne, but postIng wIth no I’s. 🙂
I just have to join the party and see if I’m a victim of the missing “i” as well 😀
Sorry, Lime! LOL
Interesting. I haven’t been watching any series of late but I have been very into Gotham. And since Downton Abbey is done, Outlander is coming back and so is Grantchester, GoT, and…. Yeah I don’t know what else is out there.
LOL OMG I just understood what the problem was with the rest of these comments.
I have no idea what is going on here :\ sorry guys. 🙁
Ok – so it seems like there was a theme glitch – I’ve switched to a different one for now … and might have to go on the hunt again. Blergh.
I don’t usually watch TV (too busy reading), but we do have Amazon Prime video and after watching those trailers, I MUST see this! Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
Yay! Jen you’ll have to let me know what you think of the show 🙂 I’m already re-watching episodes. XD
