My New Most Favorite Thing In The World: Mozart in the Jungle

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:

Season Two:

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.

    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.

    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.
