What I’m Watching: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: Season 3, Episode 12 “Trent?!” (C)

This was a true waste of an hour. When there are only thirteen episodes in a season, why devote an entire one to this? I and I imagine most other viewers had completely forgotten about the plague on this show that is Trent, who represents its less intelligent impulses. There’s plenty of good material here, and Trent just goes and makes it all stupid and pointless. Rebecca getting back to a good place in her life didn’t need to have Trent show up to do anything, and all it did aside from made her miserable was cause her to lie to Paula and have Nathaniel to get angry that she was moving on so quickly. For the latter, that pushed him deeper into his relationship with another woman who apparently has been aware all along that he and Rebecca were sleeping together. Not much else was achieved here, and Trent just walked away without putting up a fight, so I worry that he could return at any point should this show be renewed for a fourth season, which I surely hope it will be. Valencia going all-out on a party that didn’t do justice at all to what her client wanted was no surprise, and while it was entertaining to see her dance with Josh, I find it very hard to believe that she even wanted to do something like that since it does demonstrate skill but also doesn’t fit with the way that she presents herself to the world. We have one episode left to close out the season – let’s hope it’s much, much better than this!
