What I’m Watching: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: Season 3, Episode 2 “To Josh, With Love” (B+)

Rebecca was already being told by the people closest to her, who are now fully on her side, that what she was planning to do to Josh wasn’t the smart way to go about it. Turning to Nathaniel to help her execute her revenge was an exceptionally poor idea, and it played out horribly on two fronts. The first was that, after an exciting masquerade ball where she had to keep all of her liberal thoughts to herself while distracting the wives of the people that Nathaniel was talking to, he revealed the truly terrible things he had set in motion to affect not Josh but the perfectly innocent members of his family who Rebecca actually likes. Once she understood what he had done – and that Nathaniel wasn’t the right person for her despite their mutual attraction – she decided to get her moment and face Josh in her wedding dress, before realizing just how bad it was that she had told Josh that she moved to West Covina for him and all of the other crazy-seeming things that followed. Josh’s reaction, that he shouldn’t feel any guilt, wasn’t right at all, and he’s managing to do a poor job of this whole becoming a priest thing since he doesn’t want to do any of the work and just have the glory. Rebecca is going to have to damage control on the information she’s put out into the world, and I think Josh is going to turn into more of a villain since his selfishness is showing through more than anything. Tim doesn’t usually play a notable part in the episodes, and his solo about the discovery of the electric toothbrush was quite memorable. There were several moments in this hour, but I’d say “choke on his cocksuredness” was the most risqué line.
