Review of "Perfect
airs Thursdays, 8:30/7:30 on NBC
I've really enjoyed this musical comedy series so far. Bradley Whitford
("The West Wing") stars as a washed-up, sarcastic music professor, Arthur, with
anger issues. He's visiting a small town in Kentucky because his wife died and
wanted to be buried there. He gets drunk and hears a local church choir
singing The Hallelujah
Chorus. He walks in and starts telling them why they sound so
terrible! It's pretty hilarious. I'm found, over the years, that Whitford is
usually funny in anything he does.
Arthur settles down in the small town, despite his hatred of people,
because he's found a new reason to live in directing the choir. It's a bit
unbelievable, but the show is charming and often very funny. I used to sing in a
lot of choirs, and I've taken a lot of voice lessons. The musical advice
Arthur gives is very realistic. Anna Camp ("True Blood") is the other star
of the show. She plays chipper mom Ginny. There is a fun cast of characters that
are not too annoying.
I live in a small town, but I grew up in a city, so the jokes about small
town life are hilarious to me. The show has some heart, but it doesn't cross
over into treacle. It's just the right amount of sweet and funny, with a little
dash of musical joy.
Bradley Whitford stars in this comedy about finding
inspiration in the most unlikely places. When former
Princeton music professor Arthur Cochran unexpectedly
stumbles into choir practice at a small-town church, he
finds a group of singers that are out of tune in more ways
than one. Despite the ultimate clash of sensibilities,
Arthur and his newfound cohorts may just be the perfect mix
of individuals to help each other reinvent and rediscover a
little happiness, just when they all need it most.
The cast includes Bradley Whitford, Anna Camp, Tymberlee
Hill, Rizwan Manji, Will Greenberg, Geno Segers and Spencer
Lesley Wake Webster will write and executive
produce. Jason Winer will direct and executive produce.

“Perfect Harmony” is produced by 20th
