You just got "Santa Ana-Winded"
9 February 2017 | by pfeiferljSee all my reviews

After I canceled my cable TV, fed up with reality TV humiliation, I discovered "Crazy Ex Girlfriend" on Netflix and immediately binge-watched Season 1.

I'd promised myself to wait until Season 2 was released on Netflix, but when I saw Mr. Santa Ana Winds singing on Youtube I had to buy that episode ("Josh Is The Man of My Dreams, Right?") I'm delighted at the creative risks this series takes, hitting home runs in the most unexpected ways. I mean, they just wrote an episode featuring a weatherman posing as the Santa Ana Winds in a musical - and it so works. This actor, Eric Michael Roy, steals the show in a TV series plot crowded with good talent. Warning; don't be surprised if you can't get the song out of your head for a couple days. You just got Santa Ana winded.
