Just when you thought life couldn’t get any better, the heavens send us a third season of the best show ever made. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is our favorite show on Netflix even though it is not a Netflix original and airs on The CW. The third season DOES NOT disappoint AT ALL. We honestly love the dark comedy musical direction the show has taken. The third season really has proven that Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is coming into its own as the story lines and plots have taken drastic turns and the music just keeps getting better and better.
The story line of Rebecca Bunch and her crazy antics seems to reach a peak as she finally receives an accurate diagnosis of her personality disorder. The issue of mental health has long been a battle that many people struggle with and misdiagnosis happen all the time when dealing with mental health issues. It is really nice to see that although there may not be a cure for a personality disorder, there are always steps to progression and hope for anyone struggling with any mental health issues.
On a more fun note, our favorite character Paula will never leave you without several laughs and tears. I mean what is more iconic than her solo number “The First Penis I Saw”. A major highlight of the season as well as never ending laughs. The character development in this show is remarkable and always a pleasant surprise. As we went back and re-binged seasons 1 and 2 we really saw how much these characters have grown. Every single character has their own funny yet serious personality and they keep progressing in a new and fun ways the longer you binge.
As a musical nerd ourselves, The Netflix Nanny has nothing but love for this show. It really captures the drama of a satirical dark comedy but always leaves us laughing at the same time. This show is genius and the music always brings a smile to our face. We cannot recommend a show more highly than we do this one. The saddest part is that the episodes are just not long enough. The cliffhanger at the end of season 3 is the best one yet and will leave you having to pick your jaw up off the floor.
For those who are new to this show, its about 45 minutes per episode with each season containing 13 episodes. The binge will take a while but it is a binge worth taking. Again the only caution we will mention is that there are usually 1-2 musicals numbers per episode. They are all original songs that are comical and have to do with the current plot each character is dealing with.
If you want a more detailed account of the show check out our review of season 1 and 2 that we have previously posted on our site. And not to blow our own horn but Vincent Rodriguez III, who stars in the show as Josh Chan, retweeted our original review of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend so you know it is a good one. And again we thank the one and only Josh Chan for supporting our site and reviews as it is a well deserving show with a cast of incredibly talented and hilarious actors.
5/5 stars for this show and a 10/10 rating for binge worthy success
