Mozart in the Jungle is all about sex, drugs-and classical music-and shows that what happens behind the curtains at the symphony can be just as captivating as what happens on stage. Mozart in the Jungle was written by Oscar-nominated writer and director Roman Coppola, actor and musician Jason Schwartzman, and Tony-nominated writer and director Alex Timbers. The project is based on the memoir Mozart in the Jungle by Blair Tindall.

I thought that first season was good, perhaps even great at times. But as soon as the second season started, it was clear to me that, somehow, in the span of about 2 months (between S1 finale and S2 premiere), the characters had changed drastically. There was no longer and spark to them, nothing to make them different. It became some petty drama instead of focusing on what I wanted to see -- a pursuit of beautiful music. Lovable characters from the previous season were no longer focused on. It almost feels like the direction of the first season was forgotten during the making of the second.

It's still a great show. I binge-watched it in under 3 days, something I've only ever done when Marvel's Jessica Jones first came out. I can't wait for season 3, but I do hope they'll get back to the style of season 1.

i like the show but Bernadette Peters sound like she is having a stroke every time she is talking! it's like she barley can speak. It takes me right out of the show when she talks, why the hell would they cast her.

There is nothing like this on TV but that necessarily doesn’t mean its brilliant. First of all I would hardly consider this a comedy, for me it’s more like a (sometimes slightly funny) drama. Besides, I don’t feel a strong connection to the characters, I don’t care much about what happens to them, maybe it’s the light atmosphere and themes or maybe it’s the fact that it’s only an half-hour long, I’m not sure. The script and dialogues are average, a bit cliché sometimes, which makes it just enjoyable. I wish it would approach more diverse and real subjects in more depth and have more intense and rich conversations.

What I appreciate more in Mozart in the Jungle is its music because personally I don’t listen much to classical music and this is a nice way to do it. The soundtrack is really wonderful.

With a great cast and excellent performances, it had potential to become memorable but now it is just entertaining enough to not turn off the tv.
