I discovered this a month or two ago -love it! The premise is an over-achieving but v insecure, Harvard -educated ball busting lawyer decides one day she is unhappy with her six figure New York job and will only find happiness by moving to West Covina, California & taking up with a former teen flame, who sells skateboards (or something) for a living.
Each episode is interspersed with wacky musical theatre routines - great script, cast, & acting.
So to start the ball rolling, fans, what's your favourite musical routine from Series 1? ( The only one I've seen -I am pacing myself). Mine is:
(I JUST GAVE YOU) A UTI - sung by the incomparable Santino Fontana.

I love it! The yoga song is my favourite

I actually grew up near West Covina, so I know how "meh" it is. That's part of the joke.

Love it! Watching the first ep of the second series literally right now. Can't remember specific songs in the first series as I watched it a while ago but it's a really clever funny programme that's about so much more than it seems on the surface.

I love it too! It's the best show I've seen in ages. I like the 'put yourself first but in a sexy way' song and agree the guy who plays Greg is amazing in it - I love 'settle for me' with the fred&ginger routine too.

Just finished watching Episode 2 of second series, the one where she attempts to play ping pong.
In Episode 1, there was a very good song set in the desert, about surviving emotionally on tiny bits of affection.
I have not had a relationship like that in years, but I have had in the past. So I can defo relate.
I think nice but dim Josh realises that he is just a character in the romantic fantasy Rebecca has created -Valencia did this, too- and he doesn't like it much.
My partner watched with me tonight & enjoyed it - I thought the musical numbers might turn him off.

When we're together, I feel so grand! My heart goes tippity tap tap when I hold your hand

Massive fan. Watched it twice through and can't wait for the next episodes! I may have the soundtrack(s) too. DD wants to listen to it all but at 3, obviously no! She loves 'I have friends' though! smile
