Storyline

To most looking in, Rebecca Bunch has a great life: a high powered job as an attorney in a prestigious New York law firm, great future prospects in her chosen profession, looks, brains, and money. But she has always suffered from anxiety and depression, for which she is on a plethora of pills. Those maladies are largely from being pushed by her overbearing Jewish mother, which also led to Rebecca's father abandoning the family when she was young. When on the streets of New York Rebecca runs into Josh Chan, her boyfriend from summer camp ten years ago when they were sixteen, she remembers back to that time as the happiest time in her life, happiness which eludes her. When Josh mentions that he is imminently moving back to his hometown of West Covina, California, Rebecca decides to pursue happiness in moving to West Covina herself, telling people it's because she got a fabulous job there, where in reality it's to rekindle a relationship with Josh, which she believes is what will make ...

Creative and Fun!
27 October 2015 | by jjjamesorSee all my reviews

Please give this show a chance. It is original and willing to take some risks. If you ever wished your own life were sprinkled with musical numbers about your neurotic tendencies, well...let this be your model. It let's you embrace your inner-nut-case, feel good about your quirky habit of imagining your life is a Broadway show, and brings you out of the surreal moment in history we now inhabit by plunking you down in Rebecca's wonderland.

I laugh and feel hopeful when I watch this show. It is pure entertainment, which a bit of a comforting message that no matter how crazy or unattractive you may feel at your worst, there are people who will love and support you..and possibly enable you in your neurotic pursuits, instead of helping you find a good shrink...but ya gotta love them.

So few shows can say that they bring joy to the viewer...and let's face it, the soundtrack to "Crazy Ex Girlfriend" is random and FUNNY! For the love of God, watch this show already!
