I started streaming Crazy Ex-Girlfriend ( a.k.a. CXGF) on Netflix on Saturday night. The “Sexy Getting Ready Song” was refreshingly accurate. I was hooked after that. However, by episode 15, my interest took a dive. I’m afraid that much like my beloved The Good Wife, CXGF might be trapped in its name. Could it have hit the repetition wall–the dreaded point where the premise dies and the show must end–in the middle of its first season? I’m hoping for some kind of diegetic deus ex machina to refresh the show. While definitely a cumulative show, it leans heavily toward the episodic end of that spectrum, and that’s not ideal for binge watching. If I allowed a week to pass before watching the next episode, perhaps I’d be content. Maybe I should?
