Fans seem to be divided on the latest episode of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. There are many ways in which the show breaks molds in trying to reach its audience. The question is: Is it working?
Let’s see what fans on Tumblr have to say.
I really can’t figure out what Crazy Ex Girlfriend’s deal is, like, as a show. Cause obviously they’re trying to be socially aware and call shit out a lot but at least half the time they fail miserably at it, and meanwhile I’m not sure if Rebecca is being exaggerated on purpose into this total pathological liar sociopath stalker who genuinely should not be in any romantic relationship at all until she’s had like 2 years of intensive therapy (and probably some medication), or if that’s just being done for comedic effect and we’re supposed to go “haha she’s so nutty with her schemes, this isn’t at all super creepy and messed up!”…
I want to like it, because musical comedies are my jam and they are far too rare, but it’s so jarring and unsettling to not know what a show is even trying to do or be, and to be cheering one moment and going “omg wtf no stop what is wrong with you” the next.
Okay but this is officially my favorite episode because a) parody of my favorite ever musical b) greg and valencia in cahoots being adorably awful spies c) every last thing with darryl oh man and of course d) Window Washer Gossip Fridays!
So, how did YOU feel about last night’s episode? Sound off in the comments below!
