Farewell,Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

byDancin' Dan

When the history of Peak TV is written,there better be a whole chapter devoted toCrazy Ex-Girlfriend.That Aline Brosh McKenna and Rachel Bloom's musical comedy managed to last four seasons on The CW is amazing enough.But doing so with a diverse cast,while constantly pushing the boundaries of what network television would allow to be broadcast in prime time,taking anti-feminist tropes and twisting them around until they become feminist,and spotlighting mental health issues in a sensitive,impactful way is a miracle.

On Friday night,Crazy Ex-Girlfriendaired its series finale.Magically,the show was able to end on its own terms,giving us the full four-season arc its creators had always envisioned.And what an arc it's been [SPOILERS AHEAD]...

Soundtracking: "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend"- Season 3

byChris Feil

Save for recognizing our belovedBig Mouth,this year'sOriginal Music and Lyrics nomineesare a bit of an underwhelming assemblage.So rather than examine this lineup,let's take a look at one of the more egregious omissions:Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.

Now,Emmy already has a lamentable history in overlooking the show - and never more so than voters completely ignoring this third season's multi-layered and vital look at mental illness.But the original song category has made some curious decisions in regards to the show.Season two's nominated "We Tapped That Ass"is delightful but soft compared to other options.We can't really begrudge the season one nomination of swooner "Settle For Me"but where was series-defining genius of "You Stupid Bitch"?The song category is perhaps proof that Emmy voters just don't get the highwire act that this show pulls off...

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (S1. E1-2)

You know what's crazier than leaving a half a million salary in NYC to move to West Covina,California (2 hours from the beach!- 4 in traffic) on the off chance your ex boyfriend from teen summer camp might be interested in reviving your fling as an adult?Not much.But itiscrazy that The Film Experience didn't adopt亚博主页Crazy Ex Girlfriendin the way it adoptedSmashsince musicals are kind of our thing (well,one of our things).Over the past two weeks I accidentally ended up rewatching the first five episodes again with friends who hadn't seen them so they're fresh in mind.So with Season 1 now on Netflix,let's catch up before Season 2 arrives in October.

S1:E1 "Josh Just Happens to Live Here!"

In which Rebecca randomly spots her first love in the street and takes it as a sign that she should follow him to West Covina,California,leaving her entire successful New York City life behind.Let's rank the crazy...

Greg: Yes,like a date because you're pretty and you're smart and you're ignoring me so you're obviously my type.
Rebecca: I'm sorry what were you saying?
Greg: Perfect.

Relatably Foolish(Or as Norman likes to say 'We all go a little mad sometimes')
Greg,a bartender,falls hard for Rachel at first sight when she barely looks at him,and talks incessantly abouthisfriend Josh...
