The first season of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is now available on Netflix. Are you a Brit instead of a Yank? Don’t worry, it’s also available on Netflix UK, so wipe away those post-Brexit tears and watch some hilarious musical comedy.
Other stuff you can now watch on Netflix: the Back to the Future trilogy, Big Trouble in Little China, Marco Polo Season 2, The Shannara Chronicles Season 1, the first two seasons of Penny Dreadful, and, if you really want to see it, Catwoman. But, c’mon, you should really watch Crazy Ex-Girlfriend first.
For those who don’t know, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (created by Rachel Bloom and Aline Brosh McKenna) is the story of Rebecca Bunch (Bloom), a young woman on the verge of a nervous breakdown, suffering from anxiety and depression, who runs into her old summer camp ex-boyfriend Josh Chan and subsequently quits her high powered attorney job in New York and moves to the California suburb of West Covina, California,
in order to rekindle her relationship because she needed a change.
And it’s a musical.
