    Bloom is so perfect for the part, emerging as a fully formed character. She grounds Rebecca, but is also fearless when Rebecca needs to live up to the title of the show.

    A charming, ambitious, utterly singular show about a slightly nuts, but loveable woman who regularly breaks into song has made it onto TV.

    The Crazy Ex-Girlfriend premiere also was full of surprises, taking oddball twists and turns with, not only Rebecca, but the supporting characters as well. All in all, an impressive prime-time debut for Bloom as star, co-creator and executive producer of the slyly crafted show. That's the good news. The great news is that, from what the CW has revealed of future episodes, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend appears to be staying on the wild and unpredictable track.

    The good news: the songs remain both sharp and diverse in style, including riffs on Bollywood and boy bands to go with the more showtune-y numbers. And the show's starting to sketch in the supporting characters.

    Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has the sort of kooky, off-kilter, off-the-wall energy of such true TV originals as Pushing Daisies and Eli Stone. The musical productions are wonderfully surreal, if slightly grotesque. But the songs themselves are merely adequate. And judging from the pilot alone--the only episode the CW made available--the characterizations are shallow and the humor far too broad. Bloom is impressive as the title character, Rebecca Bunch.

The opening setup is a little slow and obvious, and then the show got funnier and funnier, and by the time it broke into the first musical number we were hooked. Let me put it simply: it's funny and charming. Continually funny and the musical numbers are both funny and charming. Try it, you might just like it. Expand

    I dislike predictability in a strong way. I can't watch shows like Blindspot because it's the same episode every time in a new light. I loveI dislike predictability in a strong way. I can't watch shows like Blindspot because it's the same episode every time in a new light. I love how the plot changes in this show. A girl can wake up to a new day not expecting to run into terrorists on every single episode chasing them and hunting them down. It's a new day and it's not only refreshing and colorful but cheerful, funny, and chirpy like spring-time birds. I love this show. Expand

( I want to finally give Jane a try due to the rave reviews for that one, as well). The show is comically quirky in a way that I feel has been missing since Ugly Betty. The lead actress is superb; eccentric yet delightful. The musical numbers are satirical and fun. I hope the show can maintain its strengths which make it unique and a breath of fresh air. I am giving an 8 to allow it room to grow. I hope this is just the beginning. Expand
