GIRLS5EVA: SEASON TWO
Starring: Sara Bareilles, Busy Philipps, Paula Pell, and Renée Elise Goldsberry
Creator: Meredith Scardino
Maybe it was the lockdown, but I thought Season One of Girls5Eva was an excellent skewering of the music industry and a funny commentary on getting older while still having dreams. Plus, it was filled with hilarious pop music bangers. I saw it as the show to finally fill the void left by 30 Rock. However, it completely loses me in Season Two. The jokes don’t seem quite as funny, and the songs are less banger-y. Also, some of the characters are just more annoying. It’s not a complete disaster, but it is a very disappointing sophomore slump. Oh well, Girls5Eva…we’ll always have COVID.
