    Bloom’s ingenious anti-rom-com was one of last year’s best shows. It might be even better this year.

    Throw in a few dynamite song and dance numbers, and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend feels just as joyful, courageous and ambitious as we left it.

    Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has only gotten better, more confident, and more consistent as it's moved along. It knows exactly who its heroine is, what she's good at and what makes her terrifying, just as well as it has very quickly and appealingly figured out how to turn any potential weaknesses into additional strengths.

    Yet, for all its jam-packed insanity, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend can be one of the tube’s most perceptive and moving shows.

    The whole thing comes wrapped in music: a couple of typically clever original numbers, and incidental touches such as a novel use for Scott Joplin’s ragtime touchstone “The Entertainer.” Even the show’s theme song undergoes a re-think; as Rebecca explains, it’s “an emotional thesis statement for myself.” It’s this kind of self-consciousness--tart and pointed, yet not excessively vain--that gives Crazy Ex-Girlfriend its lift.

    There are times when things feel just a little off. Perhaps because of pressure to meet the high expectations set by season one or just some minor challenges finding its footing in season two, the writing occasionally comes across as forced, especially with regard to the Rebecca-Josh-Greg triangle.

    Girlfriend remains stubbornly weird, including in an avant garde musical number (pictured above and after the jump) that proudly proclaims it busted the show's budget.

What sets this apart from FOTC, though, is that the dialogue between characters is as funny as the songs and the storyline is stronger, whereas in FOTC the bits in between the songs just felt like filler to set up the next song. Sure, maybe females will get more mileage from the show and relate more to Rebecca, but funny is funny. Expand

The songs are a bit of a throw-away and don't seem as integrated with the sets and story as they used to be. It's like, time for a song, cut to a different set, let's shoot this song, now back to the story. Last year, much more integration into the actual scene where characters would just start to break out into song in the midst of a scene, like it was a natural thing to do. Songs also seemed more funny and clever last season, whereas this season they feel a bit forced.

    Story is also beginning to struggle with the eventuality of being bogged down in a love triangle that swings back and forth, and back and forth, and reality. The fun thing about this show was the absolute delusional fantasy that Rebecca was in and the struggle to maintain it and having Paula be right there with her. The show is struggling a bit to find the magical sweetspot of last season.
