Summary and plot
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is a new US musical comedy TV series that is currently running on The CW network. Created and executive produced by Rachel Bloom and Aline Brosh McKenna, with Bloom also starring in the show, it premiered on October 12, 2015.
A very well-to-do, yet utterly miserable Manhattan lawyer Rebecca Bunch moves to West Covina, California on a whim after bumping into Josh Chan (Vincent Rodriguez III), her summer camp sweetheart of ten years ago, on the street and learning that he is about to move back home to this small California town. She decides to pursue happiness – and Josh – after a margarine commercial tagline repeatedly taunts her with the question “When was the last time you were truly happy?”. West Covina is somewhat of a culture shock, and she has to reinvent her social and professional life, while her obsession with Josh leads her to make some crazy and unexpected choices.
Hilarious musical numbers, the craziness of the main character and the zest with which Rebecca Bloom plays the part are among the reasons for the generally favorable reviews that the Crazy Ex-Girlfriend received. Although off to a rough start with the pilot episode on premiere night, as it faced tough competition in its time slot, the numbers have been slowly picking up. Will they be high enough by the season finale for the network to consider it for renewal? It remains unclear, but there`s hope that we might see a continuation of Rebecca`s intricate attempts to win Josh back carried out in the wildest ways imaginable.
