Modern day characters meet extremely corny old fashioned musicals (think, Oklahoma!) make this new comedy lots of fun to watch. The musical numbers are great, and some of the dialogue is simply hilarious. I think the writers nailed it when coming up with this beauty. Could anyone else go for a big ole bowl of "corn puddin" right now?

2 episodes watched so far.

Good pace, good jokes, good songs (most of them) and a "universe" that feels like it will be able to very well keep giving for a whole good season.

Not sure people who don't like musicals will find enough otherwise to keep them watching.

Lucky enough, you can just watch the first 10 minutes to find out.

I'll keep watching!

I'm here for keagen but it's pretty good I can't lie I was expecting to hate it.

Was I a theater kid? Yes! And this show was just the kind of funloving meta musical sitcom my little musical soul needed. It's filled to the brim with great actors (and great singers), the songs are beautifully written and the story is different but still recognizable. If you don't like musicals, this probably isn't for you...But if you do, than OMG this is sooooo good... It does border on parodying the musical greats rather than pay homage, but I honestly don't mind.

Schmigadoon! Is a fun-filled musical comedy perfect for theatre kids and musical lovers! The cast of this new series has some famous faces like: Keegan-Michael Key, Dove Cameron, Kristen Chenoworth and many more!

On a bonding trip, lovers Josh and Melissa accidentally find themselves in the 1940's musical town of Schmigadoon. Josh and Melissa see everyone bursting into song and dance and soon discover that they can't go home until they find true love. Do they have it? Will they find it? Watch Schmigadoon! To find out!

The cast of Schmigadoon! Stands out and so do the sets Josh Skinner (Keegan-Michael Key) is not excited about this musical town and tries everything he can to get away from all the singing and dancing. Josh experiences many emotional highs and lows: engagement, break-ups and drama. Melissa (Cecily Strong) is the one who decides on the bonding trip which leads them to Schmigadoon! She does enjoy the musical town and, eventually, joins in on the fun.

The scary Mrs. Mildred Layton (Kristen Chenoworth), wife of Reverend Layton, is the leader of the "Mothers of the Future" organization and isn't very fond of Josh and Melissa's arrival. As well as Josh, Mildred is also trying everything she can to get them to leave, as she thinks they are ruining "her" town. Betsy (Dove Cameron) is a young waitress who takes a quick interest in Dr. Skinner and tries to be his true love. Enchanting and wise school teacher Emma Tate (Arianna DeBose) doesn't care much for love and focuses on teaching the children, but all that changes when she meets Josh.

The set replicates a genuine theatre stage set, creating a definitive boundary between the real world and Schmigadoon!'s stage set-I love that. The music is all taken from mid-1900s musicals, but the words have been changed. You'll spend all day singing the tunes in your head, trying to figure out what the original songs are. I love the contrast in costumes from Josh and Melissa's modern day clothes to the town's 1940's outfits.

While there is more than one message to the story, the main one is that when hope looks lost don't give up (and maybe add a bit of song and dance).

I give Schmigadoon! 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 12 to 18, plus adults, but strongly recommend this for theatre kids. This series does contain strong language and some slightly inappropriate scenes. You can find Schmigadoon! Starting July 16, 2021 on Apple TV. I'm looking forward to a season 2 already!

Oddly having just watched Birgadoon last weekend I just learned of this and gave it a try, it's a fun show if you don't take it seriously and just enjoy. Had some good moments and was funny. Presuming they can keep the story going it should be decent for a while.

I enjoyed the first two episodes. It is fun and it has one of my favorite Broadway stars Aaron Tveit in A major roll. He's wonderful to watch as always as are the rest of the cast.

So far the writers have managed to keep the plot unpredictable and interesting. I hope they can continue to do so.

Admittedly, I love musicals. But I think even folks who don't would enjoy this show. It's funny and a great cast!

laqsheyo 16 July 2021

I honestly hate and never watch musical shows but i like apple tv shows (Eg: Servant, Mythic Quest, Dickinson, etc) so i gave this a try. It's really good and fun. Yeah but songs are so so so long they can piss you off but it still looks cute and different. 1st episode ending was good.

Anyway, I liked the basket auction (2nd episode). I mean why don't we have that in real life at the same price ?

ThingsAreLookingUp 17 July 2021

The good thing with musicals is that you recognize a lot of faces, and in this series there are a lot of really talented actors that I'm already familiar with, which is very pleasant. The sets and the costumes are charming, the songs are adorable and the cliché side of the town that clashes with reality is just as funny, I hope that the rest of the series will be just as good but for now I like it a lot!
