Audience Reviews for Schmigadoon!: Season 1

  • Sep 25, 2022
    Schmigadoon (TV 2021): Backpacking couple wanders into a 1940s musical and is stranded there until they find true love. A form of entertainment that doesn't exist anymore. More homage than parody. Unexpectedly, it gets better the longer it goes. Just go with it. Delightful. B-

    Hardly a masterpiece, but entertaining enough. Cecily Strong and Keenan-Michael Key star as a New York couple with relationship problems who go camping in the woods, only to discover a long-hidden utopia in which everyone sings and dances, the men all look like they belong in a barber shop quartet, and everything bears an uncanny resemblance to an old-time Broadway musical. It's a place called Schmigadoon, and it comes by its Broadway roots honestly; it was created by people who clearly love the theatre, much of the action takes place on artificial-looking sets against colorful, two-dimensional, ultra-stagey backdrops, and the cast--including Alan Cumming, Kristen Chenoweth, and Aaron Tveit--is a veritable who's-who of the Great White Way. The songs are charming, the feel-good, will-they-or-won't-they find-true-love plot is a winner, and there are some warm-hearted laughs along the way, too. My biggest complaint: at roughly forty minutes each, the episodes flew by way too fast; would it have been too much trouble to flesh things out a bit? Mostly for lovers of the classic Broadway musical, but fans of quirky TV rom-coms will get a kick out of it, too. See it.

    It would be a great show if they cut out all of the teeth-grating musical numbers. Even occasionally humorous lyrics can't compete with the hell of being stuck in an obnoxiously repeating Oklahoma! Production.

    The combination of Broadway-level talent both in leading roles and the ensemble, along with the clever winks at musicals of the past clashing with present-day sensibilities, had me in musical heaven. The whole series was way too short, however, and the final fade seemed to set up a continuing story. Here's hoping.
  • Mar 18, 2022
    One of the most boring and confusing shows out there right now. The plot is so confusing it actually feels like there is no plot and the whole thing is just vomit. Also not entirely sure it really is classified as comedy because I don't believe they honestly tried to make this funny and if they did, they all need to find something else to do in their lives.

    This musical comedy is a must see. Thoroughly enjoyed it!!

    I grew up watching and/or listening to the cast recordings of all of these musicals, even singing and acting in a few regional theatre productions - so this series was pure joy for me. I loved identifying all the little take offs and homages and thought the premise was a delight. The two main characters had good chemistry and played off each other well, which was crucial to helping us suspend our disbelief and enjoy the experience. Clever, clever music and dance numbers - some laugh out loud funny. This is an absolute gift to theatre kids everywhere.

    Well they really Star Wars'd it. Brought back something I love just to crap all over it at the end. My review would be higher if I hadn't seen the last episode where the music style suddenly switches to a modern song called "This is How We Change". Can you guess where I'm going with this? With all the subtlety of a clanging drum, this song implies that any nostalgic love I might have had for the musical genre is wrong, and I should get my act together as a viewer. Hey Hollywood, your out-of-touch, social justice messaging is like nails on a chalkboard to the average American, and I for one, am DONE.

    Oh gosh this musical is so funny. Cecily Strong has excellent comedic timing in all her scenes, and is a great singer too. Lots of catchy songs, good story, and great one-liners. Definitely worth the time for just six 30-minute episodes.

    At first glance it looks promising: cute old-timey costumes, quaint scenery, and characters that might be endearing…but the more you watch the more annoying it becomes. Gag. Poor character development; not the best choreography from the leads; heck not even great singing. Both the characters and theme are terribly cliché. Bringing in big names didn't help much. Though I am a fan of the musical classics, this is absolute poo. My ears hurt and my brain has had enough. Excuse me while I recover with the Sound of Music.
