What I’m Watching: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: Season 2, Episode 12 “Is Josh Free in Two Weeks?” (C+)

I don’t particularly love the direction that this show is going in at the moment, and I’m grateful that we’re going to have a third season that’s presumably going to go in a very different direction since a married Rebecca doesn’t seem like a realistic thing. Rebecca was in full meltdown mode in this episode, planning her wedding by herself by cobbling together DIY ideas and not letting Josh make any of the decisions. Father Brah’s suggestion that he needed to make sure that the wedding was happening with him not to him was smart, and I think even he can understand that. Hiring Valencia as their wedding planner is the opposite of what Josh would want since he now has two women from his past telling him what he should do, and I think he’s going to bail when the time comes because he just can’t handle it. After an unfortunate incident related to his cleanse and getting caught by his father napping at the office, Nathaniel apparently grew up and thought that the best thing to do for the girl that he likes was to fly her father in on his private jet. I wouldn’t have even thought that Nathaniel would be invited to the wedding, but at this rate I bet even Seth Green’s deliveryman is on the guest list. I hope that the wedding episode isn’t too awkward and that it at least contains a few songs, and that this show goes out on a positive note as it signs off so early in the year.
