Schmigadoon is Apple TV+’s big swing at bringing the musicals of early cinema into modern day television. There are big show pieces, bright colors, and a shitload of song and dance. The twist is that a modern day couple on a hiking trip stumble into Schmigadoon, and thus are wrapped up in all the theatrics.
It’s only three episodes in, four as of this release, and we totally love it so far. There’s a lot of talent in here to get us on board, but it was the conceit that really hooked us. It’s so fun and silly that you can’t not love it. Plus it’s hilarious. We’d expect nothing less from Cecily Strong and Keegan-Michael Key. But it’s really everyone’s commitment to the bit that’s going to keep us coming back all season.
What did you guys think of Schmigadoon so far? Is the musical angle right up your alley? Let us know over on Twitter or in the Youtube comments! For now though, please to enjoy our latest episode of So…I’m Watching This Show!
