If you were one of those people who asked themselves, “What’s Mozart in the Jungle?” when the series took home the Golden Globe for Best TV Comedy or Musical Sunday, this weekend you’ll have the chance to find out. Starting Friday at 9 p.m. PT, Amazon will stream both seasons of the show for free, the company announced Thursday.
