Topic: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
This week’s topic hasn’t been around for very long, but oh boy has it made a splash. It won a Golden Globe. Vulture named it best show on TV. I am madly in love with it.
We’re talking, of course, about the CW’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. It’s an hour-long comedy from the brilliant mind of Rachel Bloom, who also stars alongside a refreshingly diverse and seriously talented cast. The plot follows Bloom’s character as she moves across the country in an attempt to win back her ex – and this show is crazy good in large part because it’s all about subverting every expectation its title and that summary just put in your head.
Oh, and it’s also a musical. Every episode features two or three original songs, drawn from all different genres and corners of the pop and musical theater worlds. And it’s – just brilliant. But will Eric agree? Find out!
