To most looking in, Rebecca Bunch has a great life: a high powered job as an attorney in a prestigious New York law firm, great future prospects in her chosen profession, looks, brains, and money. But she has always suffered from anxiety and depression, for which she is on a plethora of pills. Those maladies are largely from being pushed by her overbearing Jewish mother, which also led to Rebecca's father abandoning the family when she was young. When on the streets of New York Rebecca runs into Josh Chan, her boyfriend from summer camp ten years ago when they were sixteen, she remembers back to that time as the happiest time in her life, happiness which eludes her. When Josh mentions that he is imminently moving back to his hometown of West Covina, California, Rebecca decides to pursue happiness in moving to West Covina herself, telling people it's because she got a fabulous job there, where in reality it's to rekindle a relationship with Josh, which she believes is what will make ...

Did You Know?


Series co-creator/star Rachel Bloom first met Donna Lynne Champlin in 2005, backstage at a Broadway revival of "Sweeney Todd" (which she starred in alongside future guest-star Patti LuPone). Bloom had Champlin in mind when she was developing the role of Paula but Champlin, who had never been asked to read for a pilot before, was convinced she wasn't going to get the part. See more »


The show is set in West Covina, California and is described as being "Just two hours from the beach, four hours in traffic." Actually, Seal Beach in Orange County is less than an hour away about 30 miles to the southwest of the city. Also, Santa Monica Beach on the other side of Los Angeles is only 35 miles away.

A Humorous Musical Show
15 October 2015 | by atlasmbSee all my reviews

Should you watch this new show on The CW? I would love to draw you a decision tree here, but the formatting on IMDb just won't permit it. This is the best I can do:

1. Do you like musical numbers? If yes, then watch. Especially if you like off-beat humorous musical numbers ("Gallivant", "Little Shop of Horrors" or "F**k Me, Ray Bradbury").

2. Do you like Steve Carrell, Sarah Silverman, or Tina Fey? Then watch it, because I think the lead, Rachel Bloom who plays Rebecca Bunch, is like a cross between those people...and maybe Kristin Chenoweth too, because the girl can sing. She is also the star of the music video "F**k Me, Ray Bradbury". I will forgive her unintentional slight of Isaac Asimov.

3. Do you like the song "Somewhere that's Green"? Well, Rebecca sings a song called "West Covina, California" that reminds me of that song. She celebrates her new home, just after moving from New York City, where she had a high-paying job in real estate law. She is not sure why she moved, but it certainly had nothing to do with Josh Chan, the guy she had a summer fling with ten years ago. I mean, that would be crazy.

If by now you have decided this is the quirky show for you, let me tell you about another character, Paula Proctor (Donna Lynne Champlin), head paralegal in the law firm in West Covina. She comes across as passive-aggressive, then surprisingly morphs into a kind of Fairy Godmother to Rebecca, which makes Rebecca a kind of Cinderella/Princess character, right?

The jokes are sometimes irreverent and (praise the comic dieties!) are not filled with political commentary. At least not in the pilot.

By the way, I love musicals. So I will be watching.

Update 11/5/15: I am upping my grade to "9" because this show is reliably excellent, the cast is crazy talented, and the musical numbers are excellent. With modification, I could see this show being on Broadway.
