Its now my goal to work the phrase, I'm goin Soul Train my way outta here.....losers, into my daily routine.
Crazy Ex Girlfriend on CW - Page 7
Apparently there was an actual "Period Sex" song planned, but in a rare move the CW [hunts for gross pun] ...pulled the plug! Hence the running gag this season of the song getting cut off whenever someone starts singing it.
Rachel Bloom went and released the (a) video for it. Supposedly the problem was more with the green screen shenanigans than the lyrics.
PERIOD SEX, PERIOD SEX
YOU DON’T GET TO SAY LET ME
JUST PUT IT IN YOUR BUTT
Was I surprised that the wedding didn't happen and Josh didn't read Rebecca's secret past? No. Was I surprised that Josh wants to be a priest? Yes. Yeah I know it was set up, so it didn't come out of left field.
Good for Rebecca for telling her dead beat down to go away.
So, turns out this season's theme song was literally her mother's testimony before a judge sentenced Rebecca to a mental institution. Da-a-a-a-ark.
I didn't expect this, but I'm starting to get quite a bit tired of White Josh and his attitude. Don't you take Daryl for granted!
White Josh is, if anything, not harsh enough in his judgments of what a terrible coupling Josh and Rebecca are. And I don't really get what he sees in manbaby Darryl. It seems like the only thing they have in common is bisexuality, which I guess means they have to be into each other by default? Eh, they're usually good for a chuckle or two.
He's had to shift over into Greg's skeptic role since he vacated it, which does the show some favors, but not the Darryl relationship.
I'm digging it. It lacks the detectable narrative momentum than the first season, and I can see how that would seem like a bigger issue if you were watching week-to-week. But I'm binging it, and there's no real lull, and the jokes and songs have a much better hit/miss ratio than they did in season one.
I loved Greg's departure from the show. Such a bold move, and done so well. In terms of mingling drama and comedy, "Shit Show" is the high-water mark for the show so far.
"When Vanity Fair asked me to make a music video for their Founders Fair for female entrepreneurs, the first thing I thought about was my own experience of being a boss for the past two years. My whole life, I have been torn between the urge to be bold and the fear of ruffling feathers. Thank you to all of the badass women (and men) who made this with me!" - Rachel Bloom

Series best performance from Rachel Bloom this week, but hard to watch.
I really don't like how they've made everyone at the office (and town) obsessed with Rebecca. It was funny at first when Paula was neglecting her family to live vicariously through her young friend, but there's a real "Where's Poochie?" vibe developing.
Which is what makes it strike such a strange note that as she spirals further into criminal mania, 3/4 of the cast explicitly idolizes her.
This Q&A with Rachel Bloom is worth your time:
