What I’m Watching: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: Season 1, Episode 11 “That Text Was Not Meant for Josh!” (B)

Admittedly, this episode was a bit sillier than others, but it still managed to rebound well by the end with some fantastic developments not all related to Rebecca. Sending that message about being in love with Josh to Paula wasn’t a great idea in the first place, and the realization that she had actually sent it to Josh himself was an equally fantastic and horrifying moment. I love that Paula opted to share what happened with everyone involved in the case because she knew that they would understand, and Rebecca even ended up with a police escort to Josh’s house to save time! She covered pretty well when he showed up, but his insistence on going back to her house to deal with the broken glass situation caused some problems. The best part of the entire episode was that going along on the adventure was the perfect catalyst for Paula and Scott to reinvigorate their marriage, and she was so touched that he actually listened that it really renewed things, leading to a handful of sentimental and then downright inappropriate text messages. Paula and Scott speaking the theme song was a lot of fun. Unfortunately, Scott’s use of the perfect rock clued Josh in to the fact that there was something not right and caused him to skip out on the romantic fondue date that Rebecca had engineered. And then Greg couldn’t stand being a stand-in for Josh, leaving her all alone. She’ll recover, undoubtedly, because, while there are many Josh Chans, there’s only one Becs.
