Trivia

In his encounter with Rodrigo outside the concert hall, Thomas says "All the world's a stage," quoting Shakespeare's As You Like It. Later, after the concert, he reconciles with his former lover Cynthia. Only then does he finish the Shakespeare quote: "And all we men and women are merely players." By "players," Shakespeare meant actors, but it works equally well to describe the musicians of the orchestra. See more »

The Best Episode of a series with potential.
29 December 2014 | by Dr_SaganSee all my reviews

This is the seasons finale for Mozart in the Jungle a series with a nice and interesting premise.

I posed some objections about the series overall, but I thought that this episode deserves a separate mention and review. Don't get me wrong. This is a good series with some good acting and an interesting premise, but watching all 10 episodes in a raw (yes!) I couldn't miss a decay after the first 2-3 episodes until this one.

So. This is a good episode. Rodrigo acts like a true (and humble) artist, has an ace in his sleeve and manages to restore faith (and give some justice) in Hailey's dream. Plus a (not so) surprising twist, that I wont spoil you. A cliffhanger of some sort that will govern for sure the next season and maybe even become its main theme.

The 10th episode restores most of the hopes that the pilot created for an interesting new series.
