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).

Critic Reviews for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: Season 1

All Critics (58) | Top Critics (27)

The show is sharply written and a lot of fun.

September 26, 2016 | Full Review…

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

September 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.

September 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.

September 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.

September 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.
