GONNA BE FAMOUS 3GETHER - The GIRLS5EVA thread

I was going to make a lazy zing by asking if Peacock had the funny version of Mr. Mayor, but that actually turns out to be the case -- it's just that it's called Girls5eva. It has the same madcap, joke-dense rhythm of 30R and Kimmy Schmidt, its songs are genuinely funny, and I love its pastiched versions of prestige TV.

This looks funny. But do people, like, subscribe to Peacock?

You can sign up for a free 7 day trial and cancel after you've finished, which is what I'm going to do.

i do cos it's the only way to watch 'extra' Premier League matches besides just the ones on local cable

Ok the Dolly Parton episode is hilarious and as good as any 30 Rock, the song is my favorite so far, plus more Dennis Duffy.

A podcast mentioned that Wickie is basically Jenna Maroney and now I desperately want a Jenna cameo on this show.

YESSSS I'M AFRAID MY GRANDPARENTS GHOSTS...

Finished! The middle episodes are the peak in terms of lols, but it never drags down too much, and some of the music has grown on me. (I wasn't sure before, but apparently all the leads sing their own vocals.)

i never gave two craps about sarah bareilles before but she’s quite good in this

I like this, quite a lot, especially Pell and Bareilles. Renée Elise Goldsberry is... maybe a little stiff, but has a weirdly winning chemistry with Jonathan Winters, of all people. I hope they retool Phillips's character in the second season though - she's great, but I'm not sure the shallow dingbat role really plays to her depths/strengths.

Please tell me there's another Jonathan Winters because otherwise this makes no sense...or, due to the 'stiff' description, all too much.

i think he meant Dean Winters

I mean act alongside corpses all you want, just be prepared for questions.

Ned Raggett, Sunday, 23 May 2021 15:08 (one month ago) link

I meant Bernie Winters of course

“I only breastfed for four months, is he gonna be a bond trader?”

So, so many good lines in that song

Bareilles surprisingly funny

The only bad thing about "I'm Afraid" is that I can't listen to it in the background, because then I'd miss all the jokes.
