The CW has done a phenomenal job in bringing fresh content into their primetime television recently. From the comedic "iZombie" to the supernatural drama "Supernatural", the channel has a variety of shows lined up this season. Adding diversity to the CW basket, the new musical comedy "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" will be debuting on Monday, 12 October.
The spectacular trailer and the lead role of Rachel Bloom can be reason enough for you to watch the premiere live at 8.00 pm (EST) on Monday, 12 October on The CW. Live stream "Josh Just Happens to Live Here!" via CWTV. To whet your appetite, here are some great reviews the musical show got:
The New York Times: As the title makes no pretense of hiding, "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" is playing with some tricky stereotypes of obsessive women. But it's also conscious that it's playing with them... Seen this way, Rebecca's not a nut job but a survivor, and the effervescent Ms. Bloom plays her with intelligence; if she's deluded, it's because she's smart enough to fool herself... this is a show about willing yourself, even past reason, to hope.
Variety: As presented in the pilot, though — written by Bloom and Aline Brosh McKenna, and directed by Marc Webb – the series is infused with a kind of infectious energy, starting with the production numbers, that makes it an ideal companion for "Jane the Virgin." The main difference would be that while Jane is the level-headed presence surrounded by lunacy, here Rebecca's the driver of the crazy train.
Deadline: Crazy Ex is an experiment in motion – and it really does jump around with show-stopping tunes like "Sexy Getting Ready Song." But underneath. and weaved in and out of the song and dance pieces, the borderline uncomfortable setups, a whole lot of texting, problematic new boss, and suspicious co-workers are some very serious stabs at some very serious issues. And those efforts are why you should give Crazy Ex-Girlfriend a chance – you might find something you could grow to love.
Vulture: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has a very difficult to-do list in terms of maintaining its tone while finding a little more character clarity than the pilot managed — plus the musical numbers... I'm sold. The craziest thing about Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is how boldly itself it is when so many other shows are attempting to be each other.
