A lot has happened IRL since the last time we saw Rebecca Bunch. The holidays, a blizzard in the East and, OH YEAH, Rachel Bloom won a Golden Globe (Best Actress in a TV Comedy) and a Critics’ Choice Award (Best Actress in a Comedy Series)! Congratulations, Rachel. (We knew this show would take off!) Here’s a recap of tonight’s episode: After a teen-oriented tearjerker movie, which Rebecca watches alone, […]

Recap: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Episode 8 (Winter Finale): “My Mom, Greg’s Mom and Josh’s Sweet Dance Moves!” – The CW, original airdate Mon. 11/30/15 (For all Crazy Ex recaps, click here.) Tonight’s episode of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend was the winter finale … it’ll on hiatus for a while (and I’ll update this blog once I know when it’s back). The good news is that the CW has ordered additional episodes — it’s a hit! — so it’s just a waiting game now. 🙂 Tonight we met Greg’s mom, saw just how manipulative (and, er, horny) Rebecca’s mom can be, witnessed a few […]

In Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Episode 7, Dr. Phil makes a cameo appearance, Rebecca has a sexy French depression, Josh moves in with Valencia, and Paula entertains a new client. Josh and Valencia have lived up to their promise from last week’s episode, and are moving in together. (Rebecca and Paula sit outside and watch. When Greg texts Rebecca, Paula is annoyed, noting “It’s like he’s a stalker. No one likes a stalker,” and pulls out […]

Recap: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Episode 6: “My First Thanksgiving With Josh!” – The CW, original airdate Mon. 11/16/15 (For all Crazy Ex recaps, click here.) I’m giving thanks for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend this year! Tonight’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Thanksgiving episode included awkward bathroom issues, make-up sex, a couple musical numbers, and a lot of laughs. Here’s a quick look at Episode 6, “My First Thanksgiving With Josh!” It all begins with Rebecca boring the boba stand guys to no end, and as she prattles on about Josh’s admission from last week’s episode (remember, he’s very attracted to her), the guys suggest the possibility […]

Recap: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Episode 5: “Josh and I Are Good People!” – The CW, original airdate Mon. 11/9/15 (For all Crazy Ex recaps, click here.) Some good — and surprising (at least, to me) — stuff happened in tonight’s episode, especially in Josh’s case! Not my favorite so far, especially musically, but this show has really drawn me in. Here’s a look at what happened in tonight’s episode of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, “Josh and I Are Good People!” Rebecca and Josh meet for some boba, and she’s totally freaked out when she sees Greg. Laughing smugly, Greg tells Josh how horrible […]

Recap: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Episode 4: “I’m Going on a Date With Josh’s Friend!” The CW, original airdate Mon. 11/2/15 (For all Crazy Ex recaps, click here.) In every episode, Rebecca finds an even odder way to try to wedge herself further into Josh’s life; this one is no exception as she and Paula are trying out their skateboarding skills at a skate park (they watched some skating tutorials on YouTube, but I’m not sure where they got the idea for their clothes, because they — especially Paula — look ridiculous). Not only does Josh take his nephew to the skate […]

Recap: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Episode 3: “I Hope Josh Comes to My Party!” The CW, original airdate Mon. 10/26/15 (For all Crazy Ex recaps, click here.) The third episode of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend starts off with Rebecca, in crazy ex fashion, stuffing some chicken bones — or rather, an entire rotisserie chicken — down her garbage disposal. A concerned Josh shows up, in response to her phone call that there’s an emergency, and he’s brought White Josh with as a buffer, so Valencia can’t get mad that he’s with Rebecca. Rebecca is less than thrilled to see White Josh (she wants to be […]

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Episode 2 aired tonight, and the series continues to crack me up. Tonight’s episode, “Josh’s Girlfriend Is Really Cool” in a nutshell: Rebecca meets (and desperately tries to befriend) Josh’s girlfriend, Valencia, and we gain a little more insight into Rebecca’s relationship with Paula. Greg’s still, for whatever reason, into Rebecca, and Rebecca’s still crazy funny. Side note: Before I dive into the recap, can I just say how happy I am to have a […]

The long-awaited CW hourlong musical comedy Crazy Ex-Girlfriend premiered tonight, and in my humble opinion, it was fantastic. The show’s co-creator and star Rachel Bloom is hilarious — and I already can’t wait for next week. For those of you who missed the premiere and plan on watching it later, go no further in this blog, as I’m recapping the whole kit and caboodle. Spoilers abound! (But when you’re done watching, I beg you in my own […]

Rachel Bloom Sparkles In The CW’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

There are two schools of people: those who wish that life could spontaneously erupt into a musical production number, and those who don’t. “And those people who don’t should all die in a fire,” deadpans Rachel Bloom, the star, co-creator and executive producer of The CW’s hilarious new comedy Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. In the series, Bloom’s character — you guessed it — launches into elaborate musical productions, including one where she soars above a crowd, riding a giant pretzel.
