Cast & Crew

A rom-com with music by the Oscar and Emmy-winning team of Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez (Frozen, WandaVision) stars Good Girls’ Mae Whitman and The Flash’s Carlos Valdes as young lovers in New York City at the end of the last century (cue the Y2K anxiety). The twists in their on-and-off romance are heightened by the Greek choruses in each of their heads, an off-putting gimmick that tends to weigh down the genre clichés. But for those who’ve been pining for a musical series since Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist stopped playing, this provides some catchy tunes and nice chemistry between the leads—and cameos along the way by Broadway talents including Brian Stokes Mitchell, Norm Lewis and Parade’s breakout star Micaela Diamond as a bad girl. All eight episodes are available for binge-watching. (See the full review.)
