Why you should be watching Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

That premise, combined with that title? You can perhaps understand why people might get the impression it’s a little simplistic. But, of course, as any fan of the show would attest – it’s a lot more nuanced than that. 

Across the course of its first two series, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has examined and deconstructed all those old romantic tropes – a clever consideration of just what makes the genre tick, and how a lot of those time-worn ideas are more than a little bit problematic. It does so through a whole cast of vivid and vibrant characters who are practically jumping off the screen – if nothing else, the show is never anything less than wonderfully entertaining.

A piece I wrote a while back, before Crazy Ex-Girlfriend season 3 started; it went out under a different title to how I pitched it (which is above), which I think compromised the piece a little, but still.

I’m a huge, huge fan of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Rachel Bloom, and it’s been a real pleasure to see both the show and her gain such high levels of acclaim recently. I do genuinely believe that, in the years to come, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend will go down as one of the best television shows ever. Ever!
