Storyline

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 ...

F-Me Josh Chan !
17 October 2015 | by Dr_SaganSee all my reviews

Some might already know Rachel Bloom from a song called "F-me Ray Bradbury" (The F-word fully visible and audible in the lyrics) which was nominated in 2011 for a Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form.

Anyway this is a TV-series created and starred by Bloom in about the same concept and style as the previously mentioned song. Literally, since the show is actually a ...musical, with songs and dancing numbers that are mixed with the plot.

It is about a successful young female lawyer who gives up a promising job in a big N.Y. law firm, and moves to California, in a small town, pursuing happiness with her first boyfriend who left her 10 years ago.

I was expecting more awkward moments with such a premise but the show (at least the pilot episode) saves us from such clichés scenes and it does it wittily. There are also some "political" statements seemingly mixed in the script that maybe give the show a little more substance (like the things women suffering just to be beautiful for men).

To summarize: It is a fantasy dramatic comedy musical, that is different from other series out there. Some people will like it or love it, some will look for entertainment elsewhere. See it, and decide.
