Did You Know?


Prior to production Rachel Bloom met with a personal trainer who promised to get her ripped. Bloom decided against it, rationalizing that she wanted to portray her character as someone with an average body type. She also insisted on casting actors of all ages, races and body types to try to injects some realism into the show. 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.

Stunningly Beautiful and Stunningly Funny Rachel Bloom
11 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

I just can't say enough good things about this show. Rachel Bloom is one of the funniest writers (male or female) and actresses out there. Her intelligence has got to be off the charts. She doesn't shy away from being a little dirty and exploring comedic taboos while at the same time showing off real class. This woman knows how to mix the good and the DARK and Bible Thumpers are sure to hate her intensely while secretly drooling over her image in their prayer-closets. I can also imagine all the forthcoming verbal assaults a "Million" Moms and others of their Evil ilk are probably preparing against her because of this show! (-‸ლ) Let the hate flow! She's not going anywhere and her show probably isn't either.

I also love the supporting cast. Santino Fontana is really nice to see as is Donna Lynne Champlin. Both are gifted performers. Vincent Rodriguez III reminds me of a a giant man-baby. He could pass as a 16 year-old! But I think that's intentional as he plays the "One Who Got Away" from Rebecca's time at Summer Camp. Even the lesser characters have their place and the actors all do their jobs well. Gina Gallego cracked me up in the last episode I saw. And it's always nice to see Pete Gardner.

I look forward to every new song introduced in each episode. My roommate wasn't so sure about this show but the songs alone have won her over. Do yourselves a favor and look up Rachel Bloom's brilliantly written short "If Disney Cartoons Were Historically Accurate".
