Tv Season Info

In the first season of this musical comedy-drama, high-powered attorney Rebecca Bunch (Rachel Bloom) panics when she is offered a partnership at her Manhattan law firm. Inspired by a run-in with Josh (Vincent Rodriguez III), the ex-boyfriend she never got over, Rebecca impulsively moves across the country to West Covina, California – Josh's hometown. Although Rebecca is unable to admit that she moved to follow Josh, her new coworker, Paula (Donna Lynne Champlin), is instantly on to her and becomes her greatest ally in trying to get him back. However, their plan hits several roadblocks as Rebecca learns that Josh already has a serious girlfriend and then begins to casually date his best friend Greg (Santino Fontana). Also starring Gabrielle Ruiz and Pete Gardner.

Critic Reviews for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Season 1

All Critics (59) | Top Critics (29)

It cements The CW's newfound rep as a home for quirky heroines beyond the supernatural kind

Sep 21, 2015 | Full Review…

Bloom is incredibly charming in what could potentially be a very irritating role as a panicky drama queen, and the show's quirkiness errs on the sunny side without being saccharine.

Sep 21, 2015 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Color me more than intrigued by the pilot of this musical-drama-comedy starring Rachel Bloom as the titular crazy ex-girlfriend who follows the guy who dumped her in high school to West Covina, Calif., uninvited.

Sep 17, 2015 | Full Review…

It's hard to believe that a comedy about a love-starved stalker could work, but leading lady Rachel Bloom somehow pulls it off.

Sep 17, 2015 | Full Review…

Beyond its off-putting title, this is the freshest, wackiest romantic comedy/musical fantasy hybrid of this or any recent season.

Sep 9, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

For starters, though, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend romps and rolls without really missing a beat.

Top Critic

Once you move past the cringe-worthy title, you encounter a delightfully compelling, charmingly zany musical comedy with a lot of potential.

Apr 12, 2019 | Full Review…

Crazy ex-girlfriend is 'millenial' musical, full of unhappiness and with a protagonist who seeks her place in the world. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 9, 2018 | Full Review…

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has the opportunity to grow to greatness, but it begins with a flawed start.

Oct 14, 2015 | Rating: 7.1/10 | Full Review…

Bloom is a brilliant, uncompromising performer.

Audience Reviews for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: Season 1

  • Jul 13, 2019
    Crazy Ex-girlfriend puts a refreshingly nuanced spin on the rom-com genre, generating hilarious and often relatable situations brought to life by a spot-on performance from Rachel Bloom.
  • Mar 23, 2019
    No spoilers: but just try to rewatch this season after the revelations of later seasons. I am amazed at the hints I totally missed.
  • Jun 12, 2018
    too much singing; goes on and on about her chasing one guy (thus, the title, I guess), but needs to move on to something not so juvenile.
  • Apr 30, 2018
    A sad story hidden as a campy musical? Count me in! There was many issues tackled in music as clever satire.
  • Mar 16, 2018
    It is a *CRazy* good show, and a perfect first season
  • Mar 01, 2018
    Sorry, the main character is highly unlikeable and annoying. I tried to watch the first few episodes and couldn't get past her constant mugging, eye rolling, flailing and....ugh....singing.
  • Jan 23, 2018
    Ok...I'm not sure if I just have nothing going on in my life or if this show just fricking fantastic!!!?! Probably the latter because I watch a LOT of shows. Paula? Amazing. Rebecca? Also fantastic character. The singing? The writing? The random placement of the grocer guy? Brilliant. The pooter hair on the sink that disgusted the rapper who felt the need to apologize to all his 'bitches'? I mean COME ON!!! Who writes like this!? Love it...thank you all who are involved...I appreciate the talent and the entertainment :)

    The show is great at first and musically is fun but after a while it gets too repetitive, no new ideas being introduced, and there is no point to the story. Is this a comedy? is it a musical or a teen romance? You can't even connect with the main character, since she doesn't look or act like any highly educated women or someone really in love. And there is no one to counter balance her. Just one character and most of the time you can see the .. stereotype coming off her. She supposed to be crazy ex not a selfish overconfidence slt. You have this opportunity with great talents to ease people's pain by showing their everyday problems and criticizing the celebs and government through comedy, and you decide to stick with just show filling relationship dramas.

    Watched two episodes. Contrived and only mildly funny. Would have stuck it out for more, but I find the musical element are unbearable.
  • Oct 30, 2017
    Have to review because this show is getting way more recognition than it’s worth. Probably due to its heavily left leaning tones. Half way through season one and I can’t go on. It’s meant to be original and refreshing but it’s just nod after nod to political correctness and so many music numbers to fast forward. The protagonist is an idiot and the reason people dislike feminists. She doesn’t think before she does anything which is meant to be cute but actually just so irritating. For a comedy, I didn’t laugh but was mildly entertained the first few episodes while I was waiting to find a better show on Netflix. Thank you Stranger Things.
