Crazy Ex-Girlfriend provides seamless, wacky storytelling that happens to bring in feminism, ethnic diversity, LGBTQ representation, and the tackling of mental illness without ever feeling bogged down.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend will need to be pretty careful in particular about how Rebecca toes her own moral line if this season's going to keep itself together.
April 10, 2019
All of this time, we haven't been watching a musical comedy. This has been a super-villain origin story all along, and next season, we're going to see Rebecca give into her madness.

Like a magic trick, the season two theme song turned out to be the key to one of the most, well, nuanced season finales I've ever seen.
April 10, 2019
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has pulled off some mighty tricks this season, from delicately off-boarding one main character and bringing on another, to completely fragmenting and then rebuilding its female friendships.

Rebecca's gone dark, and it looks like Paula, Valencia, and Heather are right there with her.
April 10, 2019
Rachel Bloom's hilarious relationship show (with musical numbers!) may be a little bit more focused for its second outing and that makes this often overlooked gem twice as good.
August 28, 2017
In this spiraling sophomore season, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend might start setting precedents instead of parodying them.
August 11, 2017
While Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has never been better, audiences have never been less interested.
October 24, 2016
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has returned as the same show fans and critics fell in love with last year -- a healthy, non-obsessive love, of course.
October 24, 2016
Never fear: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend still has plenty of surprises up its adorable, frilly sleeves.

Friday's marvelous Season 2 premiere kicked off the show's 13-installment sophomore year by drawing a big, fat line between the characters who wanted to move on (Paula and Greg) and the ones who didn't (Rebecca and Josh).
October 24, 2016
The cadence is the same, with romantic subterfuge being planned like a series of heists, but with the new recognition (at least by some characters) that these fantastical shenanigans affect people's lives.
October 21, 2016
We're inside what Rebecca refers to as "my woman-brain," and that's a place where TV in general, in dealing with female protagonists, has not ventured nearly enough.
October 21, 2016
Bloom's ingenious anti-rom-com was one of last year's best shows. It might be even better this year.

What's interesting about season two is that, while Rebecca may still be sleeping on self-improvement, some of the people closest to her are waking up to the ways they can change for the better.
October 21, 2016
No time like the present to celebrate the award-winning manic exuberance of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend's creator-star Rachel Bloom as Rebecca Bunch, the most twisted variation yet on a That Girl romantic heroine.
October 21, 2016
Even after time apart and inevitable change, Season 2 keeps all that intact.
October 20, 2016
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has only gotten better, more confident, and more consistent as it's moved along.

Crazy Ex is thus endearing, even inspiring, as well as totally bonkers. But hey, aren't we all?
