I tried it, and it's impressive, but I think it's the fact that no one is literally breaking into song in Zoey (I mean, yes they are), but it's only in Zoey's head and it's their innermost feelings. I don't know why that makes a difference, but it does lol

It's the conceit and the concept. I like it. But I don't normally like traditional musicals where people randomly break out into song unless they're actually singing in the story of the movie, like in the movies Fame and Once. But I like this. <shrug>

Anyone watching Space Force starring Steve Carell from Netflix? I haven't watched it yet but I admit I'm intrigued with the all-star cast.

Saw the first episode and probably laughed twice. Not looking promising...

What's wrong with working at a tech company?

Silicon Valley was very entertaining. The startup and VC culture realism really added to the quality of the show.

Re: General TV Discussion and Thread for Shows Without A Thread Thread

reading about zoey i was picturing deschanel and thought no way i have to watch another show with her being the worst of the cast.

I m surprised steenburrgen is only actress and not behind the script as she woke up hearing music in her brain all the time as told here : https://www.indiewire.com/2019/11/ma...ng-1202189233/

silicon valley show was ripping that whole world to shreds, brutally mocking it. otoh, zoey show is not doing that at all... i don't think. only seen a little so can't say for sure

nah, i like a lot of the stuff you like. and the first scenes with her powers were pretty good. and that lead actress has some real skills! im surprised she's not a bigger star.

speaking of musicals for people who don't like musicals, i HIGHLY recommend dr horribles sing along blog. it's only 40 minutes, and it's free on youtube. some really talented famous people worked on it, and released it just for free. they never tried to make any money off it, just a labor of love. it's brilliant and hilarious.

Re: General TV Discussion and Thread for Shows Without A Thread Thread

one thing that hurts me about the show is seeing their portrayal of san francisco. it's my home. or was my home. i was born there, and lived their 45 years, til i recently moved to LA because SF was unbearable.

my SF was home to wonderful weirdos, hippies, artists. but it's been taken over by corporate tools. it breaks my heart.

those apartments that she and her neighbor live in probably cost about 6k a month. and her black neighbor might be the only black person living in north beach(their neighborhood)

How does garbage like Space Force exist in 2020 with legitimate actors?
