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 (28)

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

[I]t effortlessly integrates a high-concept premise with realized characters, a sharp sense of its identity, and, most importantly, a wildly acerbic sense of humor.

Mar 10, 2020 | Full Review…

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.

Jul 19, 2017 | Full Review…

Bloom, 29, is a marvel.

    I just find the entire show uncomfortable.
  • Jul 26, 2020
    I love Rebecca Bunch! She takes our imperfect childhoods, and portrays the real problems of life that go unacknowledged by everyone else to n TV. Rachel also has great friends, like Paula and Darryl, who I also love! And Josh Chan is a captivating love interest for Rebecca. I love the subject matter that addresses mental health issues. Songs are brilliant, too!
  • Apr 26, 2020
    Crazy charming premise and weirdly satisfying musical numbers propels it as one if not the best quirkiest show on television.
  • Jan 15, 2020
    I discovered this show one week ago. I am on the season 4; I love it. It talks about mental issues, feminism and other things with humour and musical.
  • Oct 21, 2019
    Wonderful, hilarious, and heart-warning. Really love and appreciate its treatment of people with BPD without glorifying or demonizing mental illness
  • Oct 16, 2019
    Was so good but the 3rd and 4th season sucked
  • 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.
